For that matter I liked the halftime show too. Was it executed well? No but it felt like a real broadcast to have them "go to the studio" and see "what's happening around the league" as well as "first half highlights".

I am forever confused by why they take stuff like this out. Fix it, make it better if you can but at least give us something. And to anyone that didn't like it or thought it stunk or was a waste...at least you could skip through it. The rest of us have nothing now.
I can't find anything in that post I didn't agree with. I really miss the Newspapers to. Them going to the studio was such a huge thing imo because the only other football game that had it was NFL2k5 and it really made you feel like you were watching a broadcast of a NFL game. At least have it in there. I noticed the "half time show" this year is pretty much the same thing as the cut scene that CBS has when they come back from commercials to start the game.

It was removed this year so they could market it as a "new never before seen" feature next year.

IMO, it was a waste of DVD space. There may also be royalties involved from Fran Charles, and EA may have decided it was a terrible reason to pay him. Just a guess.

YOu and many others thought it was a waste of space. I and many others thought it was worth having. at least if it's on the disc, you can turn it off. I can't turn it on if it's off the disc. At least replace it with something before canning it altogether. and what fantastic thing did they do with the extra disc space?

I'll never understand people who don't want us to have options. It's already created, so they can't use the "they should put that time/energy into improving gameplay" excuse. And if they don't like it they can skip it or turn it off. I am actually not impressed with the team entrances, but I would never say take them out. I know I can always skip them.

My guess as to why they took it out completely would be the fact that it completely clashes with their presentation overhaul. What good is the huge improvements theyve made to the visual presentation and broadcast style if the wrap-up/halftime show isn't visually consistent?

Although I guess the same could be said for commentary. Hopefully they come with something far better next year though, perhaps then I'll actually watch it more than twice
