Hard Knocks is back, and Tuesday’s season premiere on HBO did not disappoint.
This year, the Rams — preparing for their first season back in L.A. since 1994 — take their turn under the Hard Knocks spotlight.
The highlight of the debut episode was this scene below, via HBO, which features head coach Jeff Fisher cutting rookie wideout Deon Long for sneaking a “female guest” into the Rams’ training camp.
“What part of the rules — what part of ‘no female guests in the room,’ did you not understand?” Fisher asked the overwhelmed rookie.
Long mostly stammered his answer, with Fisher just mumbling “yeah” at regular intervals. Then the coach released Long from the club. Long was recently picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles.
“That is 7-9 bullshit,” Fisher said later, when telling his team about Long’s release — making reference to the Rams’ mediocre 2015 record.
Oh man…this season of Hard Knocks is going to be awesome.
