    The HBO Show Hard Knocks will be at the Bengals Training Camp. It will be interesting to see how much tv time they give to Brian Leonard trying to make it at running back. The show starts on August 12th. I don't have HBO at this time so maybe someone will post it to youtube.com I'm just glad they are not covering the Cowgirls again. Lol.

    This show has yet to focus on a team that wasn't one of the league's blackest -- Dallas, Baltimore, Jacksonville, and now Cincy. Its main purpose would appear to be that of further enforcing the perception/myth in the mass mind that only blacks are capable of being professional football players (along with a few token whites).

    You forgot Kansas City from a couple seasons ago but yeah "hard knocks" will never be caught at the Colts or Patriots training camps. Team success means nothing to the show's producers, its how black your roster is.

    I never watched this show but I am guessing it has a hip hop edge to it.

    Im watching a rerun right now with the Tom Nelson part. The other black DB's call him Jason Sehorn haha. They ripped apart Andre Smith in the rookie talent show thing, it was good haha.

    Just finished watching the first 3 episodes of this show. Wow. Just wow. They show Chase coffman struggling here, struggling there, doing pushups for messing up. The narrator says " Chase will have a hard time adapting to the NFL etc". It never shows any of the black guys messing up.

    On to black FB jeremy Johnson, he shows up to training camp at 270 lbs. And its not muscle, its 90 % fat. Then coaches go on to talk about his "weight struggles"... how can a PRO ATHLETE allow himself to have weight problems. Heck im just a gym rat and i religiously watch what i eat.

    Fat black DT Tank Johnson is married to a hot, goldigging white girl, that looks like she has as much soul as a can of beans and about as much brains too.

    And Brian Leonard is talked about as "solid, does his job, doesnt do anything spectacular".

    Chris Henry has one of those faces that just make me fill with hate. The fact that hes supposed to be "tough" is ridiculous.
