I'd LOVE to know if EA could've offered a copy of the game as "payment" to each of these players when they were in school...I bet they'd have accepted. That's about the value of what they are getting now.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Also what sucks is that current players can not accept their payout unless they wait until their eligibility is used up or risk of losing eligibility for taking an unauthorized payment. Yes, even though it is court ordered. They have to wait until they stop playing college ball to collect their meager award.

Joystiq has a (typically) very good article about the EA job cutting as a result of the end of NCAA and EA merging together the two NCAA & Madden football teams. The press release at the time of the cancellation made it seem like most people's jobs would be saved, but that does not appear to be the case.

There's a mention that the one school that had already pulled itself out of next year's game was "rumored to be Ohio State." That would've stung. Not as much as no game.

It wasn't just an intentional handball. He blocked the winning goal going in with his hands. I equate this more with someone running unopposed for a TD and someone comes off the bench to tackle him short of the goal line.
