From the way the players were depicted on television to the creative style of how a NFL game is captured lies mainly on the shoulders of Ed Sabol [Steve Sabol’s father who initially created NFL Films] with Steve ultimately becoming the driving force of the business as the years went by.
To the fans that can’t get enough of HBO’s American football program, “Hard Knocks,” know that this amazing NFL documentary was filmed and produced by none other than Steve Sabol and his team.
Steve Sabol made a simple football game that many already had called to be the best sport in the world even more sophisticated through stimulating art and innovative vision. For those reasons alone, we salute him.
