Re: Colin Kaepernick Will Be the Only Player in Madden NFL 15 with Tattoos

Guys it's not at all EA here...read the article. He's the only one that went out and got permission from his tatto artist. Everyone else needs to do the same so they can have their tats in. They said they are approaching more guys about dong this. Man, all the hate on EA is horrible. Sometimes, I feel Madden and EA will never please most of you all geesh...

I realize that EA isn't completely at fault here and they may not even be at fault at all, but honestly this just kinda falls right in line with what I've come to expect from Madden.

This screams TACKY. Knowing EA, they'll put Kapernick's picture on the back of the game and people who buy the game will automatically assume they're favorite player(Desean Jackson, Stevie Johnson, etc...) will have tattoos....Only to find out 1 damn player has a tattoo...

Question, How does the news get to the players that they'll need to contact the person who tattooed them in order for their tat to be in the game? I highly doubt players would go against this.

Makes no sense..
DJ, the NLPA, the players union mandated this procedure from a recent lawsuit. Kap got the news, it was probably emailed to all the players if it's mandated. The players union surely stays in contact with the players.

The article said EA is open to more players having the waivers signed off.

We get that it's not all EA. The point is if they couldn't get a majority of the players artist permission, then they should just hold off on adding tattoos in the game until they do. That's all. How odd is it going to look if only a handful of players have tatts in the game? They should just wait until Madden 16 to add them.

The NBA doesn't not have near as many players as the NFL though. Makes it easier and quicker

It may or may not, if my team plays the Niners, then, yeah, it will have an impact, but personally, I don't have an issue one way or other with tattoos, but understand others want the authenticity.

I'm more in tune with the game play and that's another thread.
