Drone Shot Was Best Part Of HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

Just when we thought we despised everything new school, HBO's Hard Knocks opened up an episode using a drone flyover that was one of the coolest things we saw all week. Outkick owner Clay Travis brought the view to attention on Twitter:

It may be a bit much for some people, but I would like to see more drone usage during NFL games. Maybe not on national broadcasts -- perhaps an alternative network can allow access to this type of coverage though. The movements are smooth, which prevent us from getting sick, and the only downside would probably be a security risk. Couldn't imagine how scary it could get if an unauthorized drone made it into a packed NFL stadium.

If they can iron out those security risks, the NFL should make the drone flyover a weekly thing. They've got about two weeks to clear this, so get it done!
