DON'T VOTE FOR AARON RODGERS
I know ... I know... this isn't a statement you'd expect from a life-long Packer fan but hear me out on this one... YOU DO NOT WANT A-ROG TO WIN THIS CONTEST!
This year, ESPN’s “SportsNation” is conducting fan voting to determine who makes the cover. The competition is down to the final eight which #12 is a part of.
For those of you who do not know, there is a little thing called "The Madden Curse".
The Madden Curse is where the athlete selected to "grace" the cover of the latest Madden video game will have a cursed year - subsequently - if he's integral to his team's success (ahem! Aaron Rodgers) the team and little old you ,the fan, will also suffer in the wake of the dreaded curse.
Aaron rodgers is in the Great Eight of Madden voting. I'm sure he thinks it would be a great honor to be proudly displayed on the cover of the biggest video game on the planet - but it hasn't worked out so well for past cover boys.
2000 - Barry Sanders on the cover NEVER on the field - Retired unexpectedly.
2001 - Eddie George. From superbowl running back to injured and career lows in rushing yards.
2002 - Daunte Culpepper. Knee injury - didn't finish season.
2003 - Marshall Faulk. Had the lowest rushing total of his career during his cover reign.
2004 - Micheal Vick. ONE DAY after his cover hit the shelves, so did he with a broken fibula.
2005 - Ray Lewis. Torn Right Hamstring.
2006 - Donovan McNabb. Sports Hernia FIRST game - season ending surgery
2007 - Shaun Alexander. Broken Left Foot.
and it goes on and on...
Let Michael Vick have the cover. Give the ball and the cover to Adrian Peterson but for the love of the Green and Gold... DO NOT VOTE FOR AARON RODGERS!
