Nasty stuff happens all the way around when monopolies exist and back room deals are made. Ugly stuff for everyone, the consumers, the players, the NFL, and now EA.

Well, if one company is offering me 5 figures for my likeness and the other company is pretty much getting it for free, then I would be skeptical as well.

Well EA can just scramble the statistics and make the users create their own historic teams. The ex players do not deserve much money from EA.

We already have seen that historic teams are not very profitable in the long term (All-Pro 2k8).

Yes they deserve to make some money if they are used, but I don't think EA gains much out of paying them.

EA needs to create their own contract that they feel is fair for each ex-player to sign.

Re: NFL Players Now Intend to Sue Madden, EA

The key to historic rosters is not necessarily including likenesses in the game. All EA has to do is open up the roster editing so we can edit everything about a player (name, skin color, jersey number with no restrictions, position, gear, etc), his team name, uniforms worn, etc. They don't have to go near including ANY retired players in the game. Just open up the editor..that's it.

In other words, if I want to make the 2009 NY Giants into the 1986 Giants, I should be able to do so in the editor. Simple as that. They need not include any names, teams, etc.
