I never really enjoyed franchise in Madden after a couple of years in as it's no longer a game of players / abilities that I recognize. However, after watching football for 25 years, I can remember players from the early 80s and could enjoy seeing them again.

Without this feature, and with how the game stands today, the historic players really serve no purpose.
They could do this with a tweak to their franchise/season engine without including any oldtime players or teams, and leaving that piece of it up to the 3rd party community.

I wish they would create sports games that would actually let you play through seasons past

Its not worth all the CRAZY...

You should be able to download custom rosters online created by other people, that way you can have all the real historic players with pictures and accurate stats without the law suit. Not sure if Microsoft would allow this kinda thing but in Halo your allowed to download other peoples custom maps so I don't see why you can't download custom Rosters in Madden.



^ just thought about this for a second... this would also allow you to play a franchise of Seasons past, kinda a cool idea

When you're losing money as a company, and lose a court case for however many millions of dollars, you tend to make sure such things never happen again.

They wouldn't be forced by anyone, as the courts wouldn't extend their reach that far... But they would be wise to do so. Allowing people to edit players into historic ones could be seen as circumventing the ruling... If the ruling does in fact go against them.

I'm not sure it would kill unlicensed gaming, because not all companies did was is alleged here... And that is deliberately try to use what they had no right to use.
