In the past, HBO and the NFL have not exactly found much in the way of volunteers to do the training camp documentary, Hard Knocks, so the NFL came up with rules that allow them to force teams to let HBO cover their camps. NFL teams are off the hook if they can claim any of the following three things:
1) They made the playoffs in one of the previous two seasons.
2) They have a new head coach.
3) They already appeared on the show in the last 10 years.
The Eagles cannot claim any of the above. The other teams who cannot refuse participation are the Bears, Browns, Buccaneers, Colts, Ravens, Titans, and Saints.
Speaking at the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Jeffrey Lurie said that the Eagles would not be the subject of the show this season.
