This article on FOX Sports raises some interesting questions concerning the possibility of John Madden’s responsibility to speak out on behalf of his former colleagues and players who won a class action lawsuit last week against EA, maker of the popular “Madden NFL” game. As one of the top selling video games of all time, and with $3.6 billion in revenue last year, one would think EA and the union might have opted to pay the retired players to be included in the game. Because authenticity is an important component in game programming, the game would have been all the better for for the capability to play the actual name players. Perhaps that is something for all parties to consider going forward, in the hope that a peaceful resolution can be reached for future versions of the game.
