Neat! However, I'm not interested in seeing this thread devolve into a debate about PETA.

It's been downhill for awhile now ... the occasional surge doesn't really change that. I don't see them being competitive in the near future.

Understating? I noted my perceptions early on in the season -- Williams was ahead of him, etc -- and then was nothing but complimentary of him after he took over.

Sports games and licensing issues came hand-in-hand, especially in those days. The NES in particular was basically just anarchy, with games using players and names anyway from time to time.

For the record: my prediction is that this is a phone/tablet game and nothing more. I do think we'll see a solid, non-Madden console football game this gen, but I doubt it will be licensed.

The first sports talk was really good, the reason the second was better in the opinion of most is that it was licensed. The first one was not, so it was fake teams.

Right, just too indeterminate at this point to give it 15%. It could very well have a 15% impact -- much higher, really -- but it's not yet quantifiable.

I think 15 percent is too much weight to give 2014 draft and future picks. Too unknown.
