So everyone knows I'm not pulling the "A-" claim out of my rectal cavity, here's the link to the NCAA 09 review on 1up by this same Todd Zuniga.

http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3168741&p=4

A-

"..This may be the only NCAA football game in town (EA's got exclusivity), but even with competition, there's no question this one's national-championship caliber."

Todd, if you are reading this- I think you are a funny guy and I like your stuff on the Sports Anomoly, but you gotta admit, giving NCAA 09 a ridiculously high score two weeks ago ...then coming here and posting about how football video games suck... I think you have to admit its very strange.

Come on. Instead of just telling us what we already know is wrong how about you come up with an idea or two? Can't do it? Too busy just complaining? And all this after you gave the game an A?

I started off reading your column and thought it was going somewhere other than, "football sucks." I played soccer. I love it and do agree that some we've seen those games get better in giving us a real feel.

So how about you actually give some answers to the problem of defenses instead of just posting rants about they suck. You could just have been a random poster on here to put that droll up.

Instead you paint a world where it can't be fixed, but close with asking for a fix with no suggestions. What a joke.
Agreed. Couldn't have put it any better myself.

whatever man ncaa 09 fooball for the 360 is a fun game learn to play it before you bash it, and while soccer is okay to watch only for lets say the big national tournaments most of the soccer games suck and is to boring. Go back to your england pub and watching some soccer

I think he's saying that the game of american football just doesn't translate well to videogaming. That's not to say EA can't make an A rated game with what they have to work with. I tend to agree. I love football but don't think the game translates well to videogames. Or maybe no one has figured out a way to make it work really, really well. There are too many seperate things going on to get it right. Plus it's just so stop/start. Plays take all of what, 10 seconds, then 20 seconds of menu navigating, then another 10 seconds of actual gameplay. I, too, have had more fun with hockey, soccer, and for the most part basketball games, over this last year.

"If I have completely missed the point of the article, I apologize"

Pike, you seem to forget halfway through your long post that he was talking VIDEO GAME football and VIDEO GAME Soccer.

He was not trying to destroy your national sport
