EA wants to make sure the world knows that Jaguar games never sell out...


Not to take away from the free agency festivities (Merry Signing Bonuses to you all!) but this article from Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard includes 8 items the NFL asked EA to remove from the Madden franchise over the years.

The producers were quoted as saying:

"We incorporated accurate attendance for all the teams, and Jacksonville always had these terrible turnouts," says one producer. "The Jags owner got all pissed off when he heard there were empty seats when you played as his team in the game. The team called the NFL and we had to fix it immediately."

"There is a direct link between attendance and blackouts on TV, and the league recognized the fact that dynamic attendance was important in the context of franchise mode and a team not doing well. Jags games don’t ever sell out. We reflected that in the game, and were ultimately asked not to remove the dynamics, but also not have a half-empty stadium."

It should be noted that this was included in Madden 11 following the dark years we all remember as the 09-10 season, but this is ridiculous.

This is some straight up bull sh!t.
