Yes, discussion about the athlete(s) who’ll land on the cover of the Madden game is far more interesting than the game itself.
This year, the discussion took on an expected wrinkle when cornerback Richard Sherman tried to share the honor with the rest of the Legion of Boom.
Despite Sherman’s effort to cajole fans to start a petition and the efforts of those petitioners to round up more than 8,500 signatures, Sherman and Sherman only appears on the cover of this year’s game.
So start the countdown. Before too long, you’ll be able to buy the latest game of Madden, which likely will look and play just like last year’s version of the game. Actually, the photo on the cover is a good thing. It may be the only way to distinguish this year’s version of the game from last year’s.
