Sounds great in theory, but in reality, the suits will go where the profits are.

If marketing and suits (non NFL football people), they will go to where the market is profitable.

It's as clear as mud.
That's precisely why I have no hope for the future of this game

Is this from different sources, just curious, thanks. And with Madden 19, I presume by the next year comment?

I appreciated how much he interacted with the community. That was a big deal. In general though, MUT makes the money and anyone trying to invest heavily in CFM and User vs CPU gameplay is going to face an uphill battle. Which sucks, but after seeing the pattern repeat itself for so many years it's tough to expect something to change.

I have heard from a couple different places. Now will it be some massive jump everyone wants? No. I do think it'll be a very positive release for Franchise. Yea this coming release.

Letters to the NFLPA might help, but only if you can argue the NFL brand or players are being misrepresented. That helped get metallic gold helmets for the 49ers several years ago.

Eh, the NFLPA has a strong relationship with EA and I think you would need to do more than argue.

Well I would imagine you would have to present evidence regarding your issue AND present a compelling argument for why it is relevant to the players and their brand, etc.

However, I'm not just shooting the shhh, so to speak. I actually did this several years ago, and got an email response from Carl Francis, to whom I presented picture evidence of how EA was failing the brand (Carl Francis was then the Director of Communications. Not sure now). I asked him to forward the email to George Atallah. He told me he'd forward my email to "the appropriate individual," and coincidentally the very next Madden they fixed the 49ers helmets. Did he actually forward the email? Did it make a difference? I don't know. But I do know the 49ers haven't had flat tan helmets since.

Granted, it could have been coincidence. Correlation does not necessarily imply causation. But I got a response from the F'ning NFLPA, and it "just so happened" that shortly after the issue was fixed.

So, I'm not saying it will really do anything. But if you can find a very compelling argument, and solid evidence backing it up, about how EA Tiburon might be harming the player's brand (or the league's), you just might get a response, and it just might lead to something happening.
