Yesterday the NFL passed the rule saying that if a team would not volunteer to participate with the HBO series Hard Knocks, the NFL would intervene and force the team to do it.

“I think it’s a total distraction, and I think it’s an embarrassment to players,” Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I think when players are released, some of the things that are said between coaches and players are too personal, and nobody else’s business.”
When asked if he’d fight “tooth and nail” against being forced to participate, Arians responded: “All the way. All the way.”
