#7 All-Time? ResistingFrame1 Makes His Bid For Being Top 5, After Winning His 3rd TSG Super Bowl

Whether it was the disrespect of not being voted into the Top 5 or maybe it was the possible match-up with Cincy, something lit a fire under Coach ResistingFrame1 in the playoffs despite only qualifying as a Wild Card. He tore threw the playoffs, beating Twon, then Jesmonkey, then Captain on his way to a convincing win in Super Bowl 5 of TSG Madden 25 CF (Xbox One) over the Buffalo Bills & Coach Cincy life. Whether through the air or on the ground this was one of his most dominating Super Bowl runs. This is Frame’s 2nd Super Bowl in Madden 25 on the Xbox One & his 3rd overall, proving the NFC South is a very dominant division. He may have officially cemented himself into the Top 5 of TSG All-Time Greats. Congratulations Frame on your 3rd Super Bowl Victory!

TSG Madden 25 (Xbox One) Season 5 MVP Is…..

After being a throw in for the trade that landed the Buffalo Bills, CB Tommie Campbell, QB Jake Locker revitalized his career in his 2nd year under Coach Cincy, earning the MVP & a run to the Super Bowl. Locker helped lead the Bills to the highest scoring offense in TSG, amassing 5,517 Passing Yards, 50 TD’s to only 20 INT’s with a 70% completion percentage. Putting up eye popping numbers wasn’t the only thing he did, he lead his team to the a 13-3 record, #1 Seed and a disappointing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl. Congratulations on a once in a lifetime season & your 1st MVP.

Lack of NFL License News Raises Questions

madden25broncospats

Almost two years have passed since the NFL extended the exclusive video game license with EA Sports. At the time the events made it obvious that the satisfied partner in the relationship was the NFL and not EA. It was evident that EA would later seek to secure much more favorable terms come negotiation time.

An extension to the exclusive license has still not been announced. In the past that news has come in February (2008 and 2011) each time two years in advance of expiration. Now though the current deal is set to expire next month and there have been no updates from either side on how things will proceed. 

EA had the leverage going into the process. The NFL has been happy with the partnership to date. The exclusive deal has brought in four times as much money each year as when multiple licensees paid in and they’ve been able to enact a level of control over the product that projects the image the league desires. The NFLPA loves the arrangement too because it brings in the most money possible. For the league to turn to a different company would mean likely no NFL game on the market for at least two years and that is an unthinkable scenario.

Unlike partnerships related to apparel, uniforms, beverage, and the like there is a turnaround time and a greater sense of uncertainty that would come with switching video game developers. Though now they are expected to extended NFL Sunday Ticket with DirecTV at one point they strongly considered going elsewhere with it when DirecTV questioned its value. That is similar to how EA Sports has felt as development costs increased coupled with shrinking sales. The common thread however with how the NFL handles its brand is exclusivity. It would go against their M.O. to open up a license to multiple parties.

That doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. EA Sports has no reason to pay a premium for the exclusive when the threat of competition is thin even if other companies had the opportunity to buy in. The investment for a new company to begin from scratch would be enormous beyond whatever enter fee there would be for the license and then there would only be the potential of splitting the pie with EA who has one of the strongest brands in gaming history with Madden. Still it’s a more realistic scenario than new serious competitors entering the field in other sports.

EA Sports continues to develop Madden NFL 15 and there have been no indications that the license is in question for this year. At the very least they seem to have secured a limited extension yet there has been no official announcement of details. That they have avoided addressing the topic suggests there very well could be a change to the status quo and the news on that being held until the completion of the NFL season and the expiration of the previous deal. Neither side gains from the perception of uncertainty so if an agreement for extending the exclusive has been reached there would have been no reason to hold an announcement back.

No one should get their hopes up too high of a change to the way the NFL license is handled and who will be involved developing officially licensed games. However there is reason to believe that a change of sorts is plausible. February or early March would be the time when details will have to be shared regarding any parties attached through a deal.

Madden NFL 25 Demo Available August 13th

EA Sports has confirmed the long rumored date of Tuesday, August 13 for the Madden NFL 25 demo and released details on what will be included. The demo will feature two matchups with the Seahawks at Packers and 49ers at Ravens. It will also include an opportunity to learn and refine abilities in the new Skills Trainer which proved effective in NCAA Football 14. The quarters will be of 5 minutes in length. Madden NFL 13′s demo also featured two pairings and impressively full games with five minute quarters. It however did not carry with it an extra mode like the Skills Trainer. Expect the rosters to be outdated enough that injuries to Michael Crabtree, Percy Harvin, Brian Bulaga, and Dennis Pitta won’t be reflected. They will probably be in the starting lineups.

TSG Madden 13 OF (Connected Career) Division Round Up: NFC WEST

 

Who do you think will win this division? It is filled with 2 Super Bowl Winners, a tough out & an “easy win”. Twon is used to an uphill battle but this 2 time SB Champ is up for the challenge with the Cardinals as he is one of the best GM’s in TSG. Korn is always a tough win and occassionaly goes to the playoff but in a tough division and an even tougher NFC it may be hard for him to see the postseason. Chubbzz0727 is probably the cream of the crop in this division with one of the best teams on the game as well, so this could easily be his division yearly. Lastly Pogi is a wild card, he hasn’t been around for a little bit but is often considered as an “easy win”.
