Leagues Flex Their Muscles
We've seen instances of control imposed by either the NCAA or pro sports leagues that has castrated developers. Now sports video games are electronic PR for the organizations that they represent. Because of this we don't see: steroids, hitters charging mounds, goal posts being torn down after big NCAA wins or helmets popping off (like we saw in earlier Maddens). Sundays are becoming yellow flag fests for any decent hit but god forbid we see players snotbubbled in a video game.
