KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs fans will get a rare insider's look at training camp this summer. The team announced Saturday it will be the subject of HBO's sports-reality show Hard Knocks.

The HBO cameras, in association with NFL Films, will be given exclusive access to meetings and practice for the five-week training camp in River Falls, Wis.

It's the third time HBO has featured an NFL training camp. Previously, the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys were the subject, in 2001 and 2002.

"There are no scripts or retakes for us as filmmakers in a series like Hard Knocks," said NFL Films president Steve Sabol.

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson confirmed that the team will have veto rights on all content in the show.

Why are they still putting this on HBO when they have the NFL Network?

It's a continuation of that show HBO did with the Ravens a couple of years ago. I think it's strictly between the team and HBO.

I'm assuming nobody wanted the distraction in TC after the Ravens did it.

I think the whole uncensored part is really going to give us a good look at what kind of people these guys are. I can't wait!

Do you really believe the Chiefs are going to allow HBO to unabashedly air everything that could make the team look bad?

Which means that they'll be lucky to get 30 minutes of acceptable footage per day. The HBO crew may not be very fond of Bob Moore and crew for long.

Do they broadcast as training camp is going on, or do they wait until its all over to put the show together?

It's all edited and pieced together to prove as much interesting stuff condensed into a smaller package.
