As many Denver Broncos fans who follow the media are aware, we have politely declined the request (offer?) from HBO to be the featured team on their National Football League annual series, “Hard Knocks.”
It was Patrick Smyth, our Executive Director of Media Relations, who had the conversations with the network reps and politely declined on behalf of the organization a couple of months ago.
This is a good decision on the Broncos’ part, for two reasons.
First of all, once they are inside the building, with complete access to everything they see and hear, they are looking way behind the curtain. Just like the first time Dorothy got a glimpse of the wizard in the immortal classic, “The Wizard of Oz”, we knew, and she knew, and the wizard knew that he did not want everything exposed.
Remember, this is why we have doors on bathrooms, and on bathroom stalls. We understand the individual necessity to take care of hygiene, but as my three and a half year old grandson says when he goes into the bathroom, “Privacy, please!”
