HBO picks Raiders for “Hard Knocks”, passes on Lions

The Oakland Raiders were selected to appear on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” this summer, the team announced yesterday.

The other candidates for the hit series were the 49ers, the Giants, the Lions and the Redskins.

The Raiders are the second AFC West team to be featured on the HBO series after the Kansas City Chiefs in 2007.

As a Lions fan, are you disappointed that they aren’t the team being featured on Hard Knocks this year?
