Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Oakland Raiders will premiere August 6 on the premium cable net.

Whether you are happy or sad, there is some upside and downside to the Washington Redskins not being on Hard Knocks.

"Everybody wants to be a Raider", Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a release.

The Oakland Raiders, who acquired the mercurial wide receiver in March after he forced a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be this year's participant on HBO's "Hard Knocks", the National Football League announced Tuesday night. This much is certain: they will be Oakland Raiders.

Dysfunction makes for compelling television, and the Raiders have plenty of that.

If history is any indication, the team should benefit from the cameras at training camp.

The Raiders announced the news in a video on their Twitter account, one which showed a number of clips from their practice facility in Napa and claimed that the show will give a glimpse into what it takes to suit up for the franchise.

Among the intriguing story lines will be the development of defensive end Clelin Ferrell, this year's No. 4 overall draft pick out of Clemson who many teams had as a second-round talent but others feel could fit right in with the team's defensive scheme.
