Lowest ratings ever for hard knocks eh.


This tm isn't interesting
My thoughts exactly.

I watched "Hard Knocks" a long time ago, but for the past few years, I just haven't given a damn. I've been a Raiders fan for ever (since before Kenny stabler was throwing TDs to Cliff Branch) so I decided to check this out. as I watched the show, I kept saying to myself, "man...these are some uninteresting people". I couldn't care less about Derek Carr, his wife, his kids, AB or his kids, that idiot who didn't know what a gelding is (or how to properly pronounce "salmon") or John Gruden. Gruden has got to be the phoniest human being in all of sports. Nothing that comes out of his mouth seems sincere. He KNOWS that there are cameras around, so he's got to perform (example. "63" is an ugly number when Westbrooks gets it, but he makes no comment about the number while Ollie had it. He just felt that he had to say something...anything)..

I think I'm back off of "Hard Knocks" after this.

Abrams low-key got ADHD
Gruden: "We can't be out here hittin' our own guys.
Abrams: "But what if I hit him like this?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".
Abrams: "But what if I hit him like that?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".
Abrams: "But what if I hit him to the side?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".
Abrams: "But what if I hit from the other side?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".
Abrams: "But what if I hit him in the back?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".
Abrams: "But what if I hit him with my other shoulder?"
Gruden: "You can't hit them at all".

I expected Gruden to just stop and say, "All you OK? Why is 'you can't hit them' so hard for you to grasp".

I swear, it seemed like he was talking to a four year old. No joke. Remember when Antonio Brown's kids kept asking him why he wasn't practicing? That scene was a mirror of the Abrams/Gruden scene.

This team frustrates the hell out of me year in and year out but goddammit as soon as I see those colors, that logo and hear The Autumn Wind I fall in love all over again.

When I heard the late, GREAT, John Facenda's voice say, "the autumn wind is a pirate..." to open the show. I had an involuntary smile on my face. It was all downhill from there.

Wtf is up with Ronald Ollie? Came all the way from EMCC to the fu*king NFL just to show up with that attitude? smh what a waste
That wasn't my question. My question was, "why did y'all invite him to camp?". I realize that he was an undrafted free agent, so it didn't really cost them anything, but that was just a waste of time (he didn't want to be there).

As soon as he said "I can't go", I knew he was cut.

Was that just an HBO cross-promotion thing? Using "Hard Knocks" to shout out "Last Chance U"?

Chuckie's speech to the team in the beginning of the episode had me ready to run out there myself.

Surprised they never mentioned Gabe's injury.

You’ve been a raiders fan since before stabler? stabler played in the 70s. So you were fan before then meaning you had to have been born in the 60s at the earliest. Which would put you around 60 years old. And you’re posting on BX about the hard knocks show? Shut your fu*king lying a*s up, poser. You ain’t no kin of mine fake a*s dude. Ain’t no 60 year old man on boxden complaining about hard knocks smh. You googled stabler and Branch and thought you’d name drop for some credit online fkin loser

This is one of the strangest replies I've ever received.
 MCFC said

Yes.
 MCFC said
stabler played in the 70s.
I know. I watched him play.
 MCFC said

Actually , born in the 60s at the latest. I could have been born in the 30s still have established my Raiders fandom in the 70s. Cliff Branch became a Raider in 1972, so the latest I could have been born and been a fan while Branch played was the 1960s. The first NFL game I remember watching was a Raiders vs. Chiefs game that was played in December, 1970. Their starter at the time was Daryle Lamonica
 MCFC said
Which would put you around 60 years old.
Depends on how you define "around". If you mean like 57 or older, no I'm not quite that old.
 MCFC said
And you’re posting on BX about the hard knocks show?
Obviously. You responded to my post...on boxden....about "Hard Knocks".
 MCFC said
Shut your fu*king lying a*s up, poser.
What are you accusing me of posing as?
 MCFC said
You ain’t no kin of mine fake a*s dude.
Not sure what that means, I'll just read it literally. You're right...I'm not any kin of yours.
 MCFC said

I'm not quite 60 years old, and I'm not sure how old people on these boards are (there might actually be a 60 year-old posting here), but I did comment on "Hard Knocks". Was my comment a "complaint"...I posted that a couple weeks ago, so I may have to go back and look at it.
 MCFC said

"Credit"? for what? For being old? I didn't have to "Google" Kenny stabler or Cliff Branch. As I stated earlier, I actually watched them play.
