    Don't the players get a say in the matter?

    It's not like they could just refuse, right?

    Is it bad that I root for the curse, I don't want to see him get injured or anything, but I wouldn't mind seeing a crappy year.

    I do like the guy however, and want him to do good every other year

    Yes players can pass. I've heard that Tom Brady has passed on it twice. Manning was under licensed from a football program a while ago so I think he might be on the cover soon.

    I really thought it would be Reggie Bush. Vincent Young not shocked.

    It appears that the Madden curse is over since Favre slept with Madden this offseason.

    I saw this one ESPN yesterday. My first reaction was "Dang!!!" With all that has been going on with players that have appeared on the cover of Madden. I could not believe that Vince would go for it. But like his agent stated "We don't believe in No Jinx" Vince will be ok.

    I'm shocked it wasn't a white guy, to be honest.

    In my opinion Young is one of the most overrated players this year......so I wouldn't be suprised if he was on the cover. I really don't care a whole lot about the madden cover anyways.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    L.T. SAID NO TO MADDEN

    Darren Rovell of CNBC.com reports that Titans quarterback Vince Young will be on the Madden 2008 cover because Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, the NFL's MVP in 2006, turned it down.

    Rovell's report contradicts EA's director of marketing Chris Erb, who told the San Diego Union-Tribune that "Vince was the guy all along."

    Per Rovell, Tomlinson was presented with an offer, and rejected it.

    "The deal usually pays the cover athlete $100,000 to $200,000 and requires multiple appearances to pump up the game," Rovell writes.
    "Since the Madden game sort of sells itself, the athlete on the cover doesn't really matter that much, but expect more NFL stars to turn down the cover in the future, not because of the curse, but because the price is just too low."


    Chuch.
