Ballers is set to premiere tomorrow night and I was wondering who else is excited about it? Trailers seemed very interesting. It's suppose to provide us an inside look of what goes on behind the scenes in football, similar to what Jerry Maguire did 20 years ago. I know a lot of people aren't a fan of The Rock's acting but I feel he's going to be great in this role.

Trailer 2

Hopefully the NFL doesn't shut it down like they did with Playmakers, because it was "too real."

Ballers being too real Laughing This show is the Entourage of NFL. Nothing about it would be real.

NFL didn't shut it down, it threatened to not coverage on ESPN if they didn't though. Also, the issue with Playmakers is that everybody was a bad guy.

Just watched the first episode...two different former Rams HBs in it and Gus (from Psych). I think I'm going to dig this show. Laughing

Off the field? Like when he is grocery shopping, does he block the freezer aisle with his sluggish selection of which hungry man to buy?

Saw it and liked it. Its going to be a rowdy football show, which is something most of us would be interested in. I noticed Steven and Desean Jackson were in it.

How could the NFL shut it down? Its on HBO. They arent using NFL teams. The NFL doesnt own the game of football. There is nothing they can do about it.

With Playmakers, it was on ESPN. The NFL has some leverage there. With this, all they can do is pout.

I dont know what they have planned involving NFL teams in the future, but they were using Miami/Bills uniforms in some flashbacks. And they were referencing the Dolphins, Packers, Titans, ect, ect. They are using official NFL logos, cities, names, players, ect.

First episode was awful IMO. Really bad start. No funny moments and the characters seem weak.
