    I would hate to see this. It's just a distraction we don't need entering Trestman's 2nd season with a bunch of new players on the team. Chicago is one of the bigger markets and fan bases, so I could see us getting forced to go through this. It's all about the money.

    Good for the fans, bad for the team, but not much you can do about it...it brings a ton of attention to the NFL, and guys like DaOD, Beast will love it.

    Meh, i don't see the big deal. they are professional athletes. A few cameras and crew isnt going to affect our team in any major way.

    Giants and Steelers I think are more likely.

    Has anyone watched the show? I don't have HBO. Is it interesting and when does it air?

    For the team it seems like a big distraction and I would prefer the Bears aren't involved.

    If Tresty is as smart as I believe him to be he'll have a work around where they only spout sound bytes and don't show some or all of their cards so to speak. Hell, if they show Tucker coaching it may just sharpen him up. :14_6_12[1]:

    I don't know. We're a huge market too and we have real talent on this team. Plus I can see the whole Jay Cutler love/hate thing being a draw as well.
    If no one volunteers, I can easily see it being us. I'm just not sure how I feel about it.

    I have watched just about every season starting back in 2001 with the Ravens, and I really think it is a top notch show that gives you at least a glimpse of the preseason, the team decisions and the feel of a teams locker room.

    I would be happy as a pig in slop if the Bears were on this show.

    I'm 100% in favor of it, and don't think that if we fail to reach the postseason next season, that this could be pointed to as the reason. Hell, this could be the best thing for us.

    I've seen players complain about this show, saying they take some things out of context and create drama where there isn't any. Not sure the team needs that.

    that's what I'm worried about. if it turned into some clown car, I'd be upset. I'd love to see the Bears on this show if they could avoid any craziness.
