Yeah I just saw the transcript of the question and what the EA guy said. Still seems ridiculous to me to go that far with an answer when you know its not even a possibility. Oh well, it doesn't ultimately matter in the end. The status quo remains

He might as well have challenged an 8 year old to a fight (which would also be hypothetical).

With this news confirmed. I agree that comment was in very poor taste knowing they can't "bring it"

Lost all respect for Rex. Definitely won't be supporting Madden now.

I wasn't aware of Rex Dickson until i saw the youtube video of him screaming at the screen about how they were not making an arcade game and making a football simulation. It was cringeworthy and corny.

Then to hear about the challenge to 2k, wow, i believe NFL put it up for bid and EA won, so not sure how he thinks 2k can buy the licenese if they have the exclusive contract? who knows.

Maybe one day we will see another 2k vs ea battle, i was a huge supporter of madden, then madden 06/07/08/09 etc came out and at that point, you come to expect disappointment. Glad the cones back tho

I didn't take it as a hypothetical because he said something along the lines of 2K put your money up (referring to license).

Just wait to buy it used this way EA is not the one getting your sale.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

For as long as EA holds the exclusive NFL license I will never ever even consider buying Madden and giving EA my money. I would feel so dirty!

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

Everything played our as I expected. 2K football is dead, and folks need to except it.

This makes his challenge while holding a title belt even better. A true heel tactic to challenge your enemy when you know he can't touch you.
