Right now, i believe there may be a declining trend in madden sales annually, but not big enough to make a difference.
That's been the recommendation on OS for the past decade, don't buy the game, but so far, Madden has held on.

He said exactly what was said here, except he said it on national tv. Did anyone think that would actually happen? That might light a fire under EA's butt.
It won't. As long as the NFL continues to promote the game, this comment will be disregarded. We must remember, this is one man's opinion. What if the anchors on ESPN began giving praise to Madden? Would you have the same sentiments?

Says EA went exclusive rather than making a better product. Problem is no competition. Hopes "the band can get back together" and make 2K5 again.
So, did he take a dump on the title or simply fart in its face? LOL @ the vitriol comments, if only they would go viral.

I do not see this going far enough to impugn the company considering the company already acknowledges the madden title has been in the dumps (quality improvement and innovation wise).

Will casuals even catch this or will it simply go undetected under the radar?

I side with the latter and the SIM Community has already aired out Madden's dirty laundry for the last decade of next gen gaming - i do not see him, Mike Torila? Changing any minds.

Also, EA is partnered with PFT's competitor: PFF - this could simply be jabs at EA out of spite and bravado more than anything else that would actually bare significance.

Pro Football Talk is a news blog.

Pro Football Focus is a stats and performance analysis site.

The only thing the two sites have in common is the first two words of their names.

Madden sold a lot more when they didn't have the exclusive license, a lot more.

No, I wouldn't,but what if anchors on ESPN say the same thing Florio did ? I'm just floored that he actually said it. I'm floored that he actually gave a darn about Madden to actually trash it and then bring up the other game.

Madden is part of NFL culture. It will take a lot more than one crappy console generation to change that. This could be the start of that change.
