It's official, Vince Young will be on the cover of the new Madden 08 game. Will the Madden curse streak continue?

It looks like Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson was offered the Madden 08 cover and turned it down. Not because he was afraid of some kooky "curse", but because EA weren't going to be paying him enough for the job.

According to CNBC's Darren Rovell, EA like to think of the Madden cover as a "wheaties box" deal, where athletes will supposedly feel honoured to be chosen and do it on the cheap. Tomlinson wasn't having any of it. The deal normally pays "only" $100-200,000, but requires public appearances to pimp the game, especially in the leadup to release. This is way below the supposed "market value" of other similar deals, and Tomlinson just couldn't be bothered.

If you said that and you were from America, I would have to slap you. But since I bet you don't know what American Football is I will forgive you.

This explains the "Madden Curse". Basically, who ever gets picked to be on the cover of the new game (one comes out every year) that player seemed to have a horrible year in football.
