If Hard Knocks truly provides a genuine and candid look behind the curtain of an NFL franchise, the next episode should contain some intriguing commentary regarding the trade that sent Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis to the Colts.
At a time when the Dolphins and the Colts otherwise would have been privately discussing a deal, Colts owner Jim Irsay started tweeting about a possible trade. From Thursday night into Friday night and into the weekend.
So how did the Dolphins react to Irsay’s antics? Did they complain? Call him a loose cannon, or worse?
Or did they pull punches because they knew they were wearing microphones? And will anything they said be edited out, if it’s regarded as being impolite or unflattering to Irsay?
Either way, we now may know why Irsay opted to tweet talk about the trade. Surely, his tweets will be covered — and his name will be mentioned, more than once or twice — during the HBO show.
And if you don’t like the fact that Irsay and the Colts will invade a show that’s supposed to be about the Dolphins, you can always buy your own network.
