Fans To Choose Cover Athlete For Madden 12

The cover athlete on the next Madden game, Madden NFL 12, will be chosen by fans. Beginning today and continuing through April 27, fans can participate in a bracket-style voting campaign on on ESPN's site. You'll choose among 32 candidates (one from every NFL team). Fans’ votes will determine which NFL players advance through the seeded bracket, culminating in the reveal of the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete on ESPN’s “SportsNation” on April 27.

“Whether it be from fans, media, agents, or even the players themselves, there’s never a shortage of opinions when it comes to the annual selection of the Madden NFL cover athlete,” said Anthony Stevenson, Senior Product Manager of EA Sports. “So this year we’re handing the keys over to the public."

This is the second year fans have chosen the cover model for Madden. Last year, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, fresh off a Super Bowl XLIV MVP award, won, beating out Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.

The obvious choice for cover athlete in 2012 is Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick, because he's the best player in the NFL, and because he was convicted of animal cruelty after staging pitbull fights. Can you imagine the public outcry if he becomes cover athlete of the next Madden game? That's what I call "fun!"  Then, when that dies down, Vick will become a vick-tim (get it?) of the "Madden Curse" and his fate will be poetically sealed. It's a win-win. Dog-lovers should rush to gather votes for Vick, as his life will fall apart after winning... although, how it could fall much further than a bid in the stony lonesome for dog-fighting is hard to imagine.

If you can't bring yourself to vote for Vick, you should put in for the Bills' receiver Steve Johnson because he has the the best name in the NFL.

Of course, there's doubt as to whether there will actually be a a football season this year, which would mean any potential cover-boy on Madden 12 might be cursed because of his appearance on the cover.
