    So they announced the cover athletes for for Madden 10. Yep there's two of them, Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald. Why'd they have to pick Fitzgerald I like him and the Cardinals. I hate the Steelers so I'm glad the curse will get to them, but still. The cover does look badass but I just wish it wouldn't have been Fitzgerald.

    Now wait a second there's other things that could happen besides injury. Total collapse by their hands causing them to miss the playoffs for one.

    **** the Steelers

    Worse. He got kicked outta Green Bay and had to play for the Jets where he had an awful season that ultimately put him into retirement.

    John Madden's love for his dear Brett would never allow him to physically hurt his sweet, sweet Favre. No curse can conquer that kinda love.

    Look at what became of the Jets at the end of the season. I remember right after they beat the Titans everyone was saying how they were the best team in the NFL at that point. Then they just sort of collapsed and missed the playoffs.

    Actually never even thought there was a madden curse, just some luck that wouldn't be.

    This is a huge stretch.

    He was "retired" when they made him the cover boy.

    Favre, not a video game cover, made the decision to keep playing after Green Bay already moved on.

    People will go to great lengths to try and perpetrate like some asinine cruse really exists.

    I'm sure a picture on a video game is really injuring people or making them have bad seasons. :rolleyes:

    All you need is common sense to realize the "curse" is a load of ****.

    I give up.

    Apparently a piece of plastic with somebody's picture on it determines the fate of an NFL player's season. :rolleyes:

    Since we're all talking about curses, perhaps Bolttalk needs someone clever to gin up voodoo dolls of our next opponents so we can poke them with virtual pins. Then for next years draft we can have virtual chicken entrails to read and we'll know who we're going to draft in advance.

    My sentiments exactly.

    If your post was a joke then ignore my response.

    I used to like the "madden curse" when I thought it was a joke.

    Then I read/heard too many people taking it way too seriously.

    And I've seen that so much that it makes it hard for me to differentiate it from someone who's jokingly making an argument about how it's "real".

    I was also kind of tired last night.

    To be honest, when I made that post (first response to you) I didn't even pay attention to who posted it. I just replied to the post itself.
