Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

I take everything Mike Florio says with a grain of salt. Fact checking and accuracy aren't staples of his writings.

Let's not kid ourselves. Had he said madden is an amazing representation of the NFL, our usuals who liked the posts bashing him would suddenly be singing his praises.

What I will do however to spread the word is share his video link on the EA Twitter pages - what say you EA?
what he said is not too far off from what many of the sim community is saying. The game isn't that good and not a representative of NFL football other than there are players, the teams, the logos and the rules.

PUblicity stunt or not, doesnt matter, just read this website and you will see the same thing people are saying on this forum. The game sucks, no competition resulting in a subpar game with lack of improvements to make a real representation of a football game.

Instead, we have a game that enables zig zagging, warping, stupid defense, canned animation, no gang tackling, and gimmicky features. Yes, these things are whined about by everyone pretty much every year and yet we are still whining about it.

I don't know much about Florio, so, I started reading the comments about him on that site that was linked.

I formed an opinion based on those comments.

Nostalgia is quite selective as I was a Madden gamer way before I was a 2K gamer.

Those of you who believe this was not a calculated move are wrong.
It's hard for a lot of people to believe conspiracies happen. So they look for every reason to not believe it, even when the proof is in writing.

I'm glad people are starting to read this stuff. The media has done a poor job of exposing it.

It's not nostalgia when you can boot up 2K5 today and show, side-by-side, clear examples and demonstrations of how much better 2K5 is at the fundamental game of football than the current release of Madden.
