    I thought I saw florio talking about how Rodgers vs Woodhead (I think) was surprisingly close

    You are right, but that release was out of the blue. They could very well be making those up.

    If they showed a real-time counter on the site, it would indicate that it was true. Yet they don't. You only get any info if they so choose to release it. Kinda shady...

    IMHO that, combined with what I said about the image contract and putting them in a though spot, is indicative of it being fixed.

    The voting is generating a lot of traffic for ESPN's site, and is a very nice promotional tool for Madden. If it's indeed fixed, it's all the positives with none of the negatives!

    Good point. Especially since a lot of people seem to think Brady is the best thing since sliced bread. I know, I know, it's all in the stats.

    It would fit in my conspiracy theory.

    They would be favorites to win, and if the deal was already done, could become quite a problem...

    Boo. We can't let our Super Bowl MVP get taken out by a glorified fullback! That's embarrassing!

    I favor that embarrassing moment rather than Rodgers breaking his leg week 1. <--Very very superstitious.

    My thinking is he'd get killed by Vick (Just like a dog.... cheap shot? Yeah, you're right.) in the next round anyways. Less embarrassment in that.

    I think the promo should include a clip of him strapping on the Title belt. That would probably help get more votes too.

    Because they have to want to be on it, which they apparently don't.

    Be sure to get out the vote. All news currently states Hillis has a 12-point lead over Rodgers. I haven't found a website that gives current results. Anyone?

    Wonder how many people won't buy Madden next year just because Vick is on the box?

    I guess it won't matter that Rodgers didn't get on the cover this year... He's still got another 2 or 3 superbowl MPVs in him

    Vick over Hillis in the finals is my prediction. Vick needs to reactivate the curse I suppose.

    I hope it is Vick!!! Poor Aaron though! :( Vick will activate the curse for sure. The Eagles are jinxed anyway, so why not? I say we vote for Vick!!! Lets jinx the Eagles! :happy0005:

    Ahh, the true sign of maturity.

    While I'm not terribly superstitious, there is plenty of proof that something unfortunate happens to the cover athlete, and I for one would rather not have Rodgers on the cover, why risk it.

    And as ivo said, about 5 people would boycott Madden with Vick on the cover. A ripple in the pond when you look at how many people buy Madden annually.
