    Assuming this is real I beg to differ. This letter is not written particularly well , nor does the writer bother to learn any facts in that John Madden would have zero to do with ratings. No part of it was funny beyond a 12 year old sense of humor & a few oddly placed profanities, he has more in common with legendary retard Dane Cook than Shakespeare:rolleyes:

    Man its funny. Relax. For some of us just reading something like this that is so horribly constructed and is in no way real because no one is that dumb just makes us laugh because its funny. Not meant to be taken seriously. Chill Pill dude.

    How many have you "wasted" replying to this? to something you don't care about? Good choice!

    the funny thing is real life players call Tiburon all the time and try to lobby for their ratings to be increased.

    Really? If I was an NFLer I probably wouldn't even play Madden let alone try and call up the company to get a ratings boost. What douches

    oh yeah. TONS of them play Madden. And a lot of it is played while they're on the road. (I'm pretty sure one of the Hard Knocks showed a bunch of guys in somebody's room playing Madden). (The old Bears RB Neil Anderson actually used to post at MaddenMania from time to time under a pseudonym I forget).

    so the ratings become almost a point of pride, boasting and good humored ribbing.

    I forget where I saw it, but the clip I remember was Dhani Jones bitching at an event that he was a 77 overall and that he argued to get pushed up to the magical 80 overall mark.
