I do agree that getting to the NFL and convincing them that competition is good for the NFL videogames would be a great idea, and I certainly would be part of a movement. In all fairness, EAs Madden isn't all bad, but I do believe it was better when 2K was competing with them. Some of the best Maddens and 2K games were when they were trying real hard to get the market share.
Agreed. Madden isn't what Gamebreaker was in its last days ("I can see my breath! What do you mean it's 65 degrees outside?"), but competition helps everyone. That's meant as much for EA as it was for Take Two's juvenile response in baseball. And the NFL cares little about market share, since they're getting their money either way.
