When it comes to the popular HBO series "Hard Knocks", six NFL teams took a pass with letting cameras invade their lives.

While there may be rumblings about not wanting to do the show, the Miami Dolphins went ahead and bit the bullet and will be on this season's show. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said it was a "business decision," but at least one player was less than pleased when he heard the news.

"I wasn't too thrilled to tell you the truth," Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "I think we were informed at a team meeting, and there were a lot of groans when it was announced. But we're going to have to deal with it and try not to let it be a distraction."

With high-profile players such as running back Reggie Bush and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, that may be easier said than done.
