NFL Players Now Intend to Sue Madden, EA

Kotaku has the scoop.

Quote:
"Fresh off a $28 million victory over their own union, a retired NFL player says his comrades are targeting John Madden and Electronic Arts for their roles in games using their likenesses without compensating them.

Readers might recall that more than 2,000 retired NFL players won a collective $28 million judgment against the National Football League Players Association, upheld in January. Their suit alleged that the union advised EA to "scramble" the players' likenesses (numbers, heights, sometimes races, but not stats) in order to use them in historic team rosters without compensation."
Platform: PS3 / Xbox 360

Dunno if they will win this though, its not their exact likeness, who cares if the stats are the exact same, thats not a true to life representation of someone, at least not in my eyes.

Couldn't care less. I don't have any use for historic teams or players anyway.

I'm mostly a season player. So if players aren't current I have no use for 'em. having Big Ben throw to Lynn Swann is just odd to me.

I'd be lying if I said I did anything more than glance at the historic rosters. Just not a draw for me.

On the flip side, I guess what goes around comes back around *cough exclusive rights cough*

I've enjoyed Madden 09 but that's only because I had no NFL 2k9 to play.

As much money as EA makes you would think they would pay them to have as much likelyness as possible.
