I have played occasionally against the historic teams in previous Madden games. It was nice to see how you fared vs. the '85 Bears, Niners, or Cowboy teams of the past.

That said, pay those retired players their share. It's the least EA could do considering they rape us for $60 each year for games that are nothing more than updates that should be downloaded online for a reduced fee.

Amen, brother.

Karma's a bitch, and the time's a coming for the suits at EA to open up the company wallet. Couldn't happen to a shrewder company, IMO.

I agree with those that feel retired players should get paid if being used in the game.

In all honesty I would be very happy if the retired players win this sue, but the day when I finally see the words that EA no longer has the exclusive license deal for NFL and NCAA games. Now that I will be JUMPING for joy.

No knock on EA , but I just miss having options in playing NFL video games.

I remember back in the days reading all the new features each company was putting into their game. All the competition going around to out do each other. It was great .

This is what happens when you give people too much money at a young age that have no idea what to do with it. Must less the fact that is isn't going to last.

Then at old age when there is no money, memories are fading, injuries hurt and it is time to blame everyone else.

Time to get back in the headlines and get paid.

That or their kids are pissed there isn't enough money is their trust funds or there isn't even one.

Alot of you people are missing the point while some of you know what you are talking about. The problem is that EA and the Players Association were in bed together.

This goes beyond just the video game the problem is that the older players in the league didnt get any kind of 401k or anything like that and they werent getting the money players are today. The Players Association was not handling royalties etc. made and contributing it to retired players. And what was going on between the Association and EA was a perfect example.

What would have been right to have do is for EA to maybe pay a little bit more into NFLPA and the NFLPA to take that money and give it to the players. That way EA could have rights to the players likeness etc. and the players wouldn't care because they would have gotten compensated through the NFLPA. Personally I feel that the NFLPA is more to blame then EA but EA got caught in the wrong as well.

For those of you that say oh I dont need no historical teams obviously are the same ones that search for every glitch to use in the game and have no respect for the game. You cant get anywhere in life if you dont know where you came from how do you know where you are going?

Alot of "Fans " have no clue about their teams history and its really sad because you really have no attachment to your team. I'm from Philadelphia and I love all my sports teams. And in the recent loss of a great broadcaster I have been listening to my entire life its really pathetic that people could say oh forget those old timers what they do for me?

I'll tell you what they did They played for the love of the game they played with class and they played for their team. I would have much rather watched games in the 60's and 70's then the ones today. steroids pre madonnas convicts killers and the rest of the crap in all of pro sports is pathetic.

Basically my point its respect must be given to the players of the past and they have every right to expect compensation from a billion dollar industry when they sacrifeced they bodies to it. Not for money or fame but the love of the game.

This post in all honesty is the meaning of ignorance IMO!
