Too many people like the "Jersey Shore " aspect to these shows as I like to call them. I personally hate them and why I don't watch many hard knocks episodes but was intrigued as I've always had a soft spot for Oakland going back to the late 90s Chucky days with Gannon, Woodson, Brown, Eric Allen Etc. Most of the Jersey shore drama is always scripted not really real and just made for TV entertainment. Shows like JS and Duck Dynasty got exposed awhile back for not being "reality" TV and a lot of it scripted. I hate that type of show. I really enjoyed this first episode as I can do without the drama. Though I will admit I was disappointed I didn't get any AB diva moments yet.

I’m totally with you. I watch 0% of "reality tv". (ok. 5%. The Mrs and I do watch the Amazing Race)

I’ve  never watched any of the previous seasons of Hard Knocks for exactly the reason you mention. I’m only watching this season because I’m a long time, long suffering Raiders fan. But this year's gonna b different! No crazy, weird drama will surround this team at all this season on our way to the Super Bowl!!!!!!

(unrelated: anyone see my 10 year old helmet? I seem to have misplaced it)

Contact Oakland Raiders staff they might have it. 

Yeah I use to watch like Survivor until they started doing stupid stuff with challenges. Those first few yrs were fun. Fun fact the one girl on there was a local Philly girl who's best friend was a teacher of mine in HS. She ended up marrying Phillies Pitcher at the time Kyle Kendrick and my teacher was the maid of honor for the wedding. I think I stopped watching it before HS as my brothers and parents consumed themselves with so many others and wasted years on LOST.

Surprising if only because the image of his gnarly feet had been posted all over Twitter prior.

Loved seeing Abrams and Ferrell in action -- both in the game itself last week, and in this episode. Despite how abrasive he may have come off in ep 1, Abrams is a flat-out baller, with the kind of physicality and attitude you love to see at that position. And seeing him connect with Woodson like that was superb.

Cool to see backstories of guys like Doss. 

Gruden seems like the perfect combo of tough-### with solid support. I can see why players would love to work for him. D-line coach Brentson Bucker seemed the same way.

Good thing Renfrew has great hands, he certainly isn't cutting it as a lounge singer.

Incognito preaching calm, measured approach when fights are breaking out on field? What universe are we living in?

Mad Maxx came off looking like he has real rotational potential.

Wondering why we haven't heard from/about Josh Jacobs or any of the RB's for that matter. Not even during the game play did they mention them.

Was thinking the same thing.

CC says he’s saying “Boom!” But I’m very sure that Gruden kept yelling “BOOF!!” after every td. 

That's what I heard.

That and a lot of Drip Drops.

Got a new appreciation for Darren Waller, didn't know his backstory.

'Frow looked a little sad at times at all the abuse, but he shuts all the smack talk down with his play. Looks like he's a gem of a slot player.

Had no idea Willson was a Canuck from the City of Roses. 

Gruden seems to really want Glennon to be the backup guy. At this point, it's a toss-up as both Glennon and Peterman have run hot/cold.

Jacobs is a ghost on this program so far.

Antonio Brown seems like he's trying too hard to be that outgoing personality.

The amount players care about their Madden ratings is a bit eye opening.

The 'salmon' signs in the crowd were great.  So was Caliendo doing his Gruden with items from the first two episodes.
