NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – HBO’s widely-popular “Hard Knocks” series has earned its share of praise from critics and a number of major awards since the show debuted in 2001.

New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch is not a fan.

Tisch spoke of his distaste for the series in an interview with TMZ. He feels that “Hard Knocks” can be a distraction for young players.

“I don’t think it brings anything to the team,” Tisch said to TMZ. “It’s a bit of a distraction and I think it’s sort of misleading for the players … especially the young guys.”

Both Tisch and John Mara have stated that the Giants have no interest in participating in the reality series.

“Even though it comes off as a documentary, you’re asking young athletes to perform,” Tisch said. “Perform on the field … don’t perform in the locker room for a TV show.”

The Cincinnati Bengals are currently being profiled in the 2013 edition of the Emmy-winning series.
