EA sports will have it’s annual cover athlete for their next Madden NFL 12 video game. Small problem. Michael Vick is slated as one of the candidates as the next front cover athlete. Do you have a problem with that?
I’m a fan of #7, Philadelphia eagles quarterback Michael Vick. But many people feel what he did was wrong. Michael Vick was convicted of torturing pit bulls in dog fighting competitions where he was allegedly the ring leader of these organized crimes. He was sentenced to two years in jail and was suspended from the NFL without pay. This past year, Michael Vick became a household name on Sundays for his outstanding play and many were touting him as the front runner for the MVP award.
Fast forward to now, and he is a candidate as the next Madden NFL 12 cover athlete. EA Sports will allow you to vote for who you want on the cover. Go to Madden Vote and in bracket form you will choose who you want and depending on the votes, your player will advance to the next round. The reveal of the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete will occur on ESPN’s “SportsNation” on April 27.
Here is the bracket so you can see which of your favorite players are available for voting.
