Madden Cover

Postby skinz74 » Thu Mar 18, 2004 11:20 pm

Rumor has it that Ray Lewis will adorn the next edition of Madden due out in August. That could spell trouble for you fantasy footballers, as well as Ray's career...due to the madden jinx. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy... :roll:

I would hate this, but I believe in the Madden and SI jinx. (With the exception of St. Joe's being on the cover several weeks before their first loss). While I don't want to deal with seeing him on the cover of 2005, I guess that I'll just put the game in the 2004 case. :lol:

Madden jinx is going to put Lewis out for the season just like it has in the past. It couldn't happen to a better person.

Yeah its really whacked how that has become the staus quo for the poster boy on the covers of Madden and SI. Lets See Vick got it last year....Lewis a couple years back....who else? Faulk right? wasn't he on the 2002 Madden? I tend to sell my old ones off every year when I get the updated one.

I know you guys are all wack over Madden Football but ESPN NFL is seriously wicked. At $50 bucks a shot for new games I went with ESPN cause that had a higher rating and a lot of the gamers I know loved it.

Oh, TOPSPIN is killer and you don't even have to be good at tennis to play.

I wish it was Mark Brunnell. So that Patrick Ramsey can have HIS starting job back.

But, atleast now, LaVar Arrington gets to shine without Ray Lewis there.

There was the time when... No, that was McNabb.

Can't forget when... Wait. That was an imcompetion on fourth down...

Well, there aren't THAT many good memories.
