Dolphins' tight end Anthony Fasano was drafted by Bill Parcells, and later brought to Miami by the former president of the franchise.

So it's probably not a stunner to owner Stephen Ross, he of the "transparent organization" goal, to hear Fasano bellyache about the decision to invite HBO's hundreds of cameras and crew to training camp to film "Hard Knocks."

"I think we were informed at a team meeting, and there were a lot of groans when it was announced," Fasano told XM NFL Radio. "But we're going to have to deal with it and try not to let it be a distraction. But it's going to be fun for the fans and should be interesting to see, even for some of the players, behind the scenes of the team."

NFL Films is typically granted round-the-clock access to document everything from team meetings to cafeteria sitdowns and road trips for preseason games.
