The great running back, NFL Hall-of-Famer Jim Brown gave Sony and Electronic Arts one hell-of-a pep rally. Yesterday, Brown sued both companies for using his image on the Madden NFL titles (specifically on 2001), apparently without his permission.

With Madden NFL 2009 set to kick off this August 12, Brown said that the companies used his likeness on a player, wearing the same jersey as Brown, featured on the "All Brown's Team" classic lineup in the game. The running back played as number 32 for the Cleveland Browns during his amazing NFL career, but had left the league to pursue acting. Brown has appeared in Hollywood movies such as The Dirty Dozen and Any Given Sunday.

Funny how Brown didn't mention Microsoft or Nintendo, who also supports the Madden franchise on their systems. Maybe he doesn't like Blu Ray.
