Art Rooney II Thinks Steelers Will Appear On Hard Knocks Sooner Or Later

Pittsburgh Steelers team president Art Rooney II was interviewed Wednesday morning at the Veritix Sports Facilities & Franchises 2014 and Ticketing Symposium that is taking place at the Marriott City Center in Pittsburgh and he might have dropped a hint as to whether or not his team will be the subject matter this year on the HBO training camp documentary, “Hard Knocks“.

Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Wednesday on Twitter that when asked about whether or not it was possible that the Steelers would ever take part in Hard Knocks, Rooney said, “It will happen sooner or later.”

Judging by Rooney’s choice of words, the sooner isn’t likely to be this year. In fact, with it now being June, we should find out any day now which team will be surrounded by the HBO cameras this year during training camp and I will be shocked it it’s the Steelers.

Last June 17th is when HBO announced on Twitter that the Cincinnati Bengals would be the subject matter for 2013, so we should have an announcement about 2014 within the next week.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Heard someone on the NFL network last night calling for the Steelers to be on the show.

    He’s a realist. Eventually, it’s going to happen whether we like it or not.

    Hoping it ends before we end up on it. Nothing but a distraction and waste of time.

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    How many of you would refuse to watch the Steelers Hard Knocks?

  • 2443scott

    i would and i havent watched any of the others either…just a useless tv show like so many other reality shows on tv …once people know they be on tv they act the way people think they should and aim for spot light fame

  • Melly

    I’ll def watch it when/if it happens. So will the majority of the people on this site.

  • joed32

    Let me guess, you don’t sub to HBO?

    If the Steelers make the playoffs they won’t have to worry about being on Hard Knocks. Looks like Cleveland turned it down, which they can because of a Rookie Head Coach.

  • steelster

    Would love it. Bring it on.

    I really don’t understand the negativity around here towards this show. These are professional athletes, it’s not as if they’ve never seen a camera crew in the locker room. If the Steelers appear on the show, it will probably be enough to force me to buy an HBO subscription (at least temporarily). Incidentally, I could stop avoiding Game of Thrones spoilers on social media!
