So far HBO’s Hard Knocks has been a hit among football fans, although not all the players are happy with the show.

The New York Jets are this year’s Hard Knocks storyline, and strangely enough Darrelle Revis has not been the most talked about cornerback on the team.

Instead, it's newly acquired Antonio Cromartie, a player who may be best known around the NFL for fathering eight children with seven different women. On episode two of the TV series, Cromartie talked about his kids, but appeared to struggle with their names.

Go to to watch Cromartie attempt to remember his kids' names.

According to Cromartie, he had no problem doing the segment, but the film crew asked him to do a separate take, this time pausing before each child’s name.

HBO has denied his claims, but either way, Cromartie’s reputation has been butchered even more.
