Frederick: Thanks for the link, Subby.  That was neat.  But who ever put together the "Old School" selection is apparently 25 years old.  How does Jim Brown or Walter Payton -two of the most iconic players get left off?


Walter Peyton is dead, so it would be hard to get him to grant likeness rights.

Jim Brown and EA had a bit of a legal kerfuffle back a few years ago when Brown sued EA for including his likeness in the game (they never used his name or his picture, just his uniform number and an avatar that looked like a big black guy).

I totes voted for Delhomie. Also, I'm kind of surprised the old school bracket doesn't have more "other than QB, rb, and wr" players. Like I'd totally vote for Mike Alstott, for example.

That's not old school. Bronco Nagurski is old school. Y.A. Tittle is old school. Red Grange is old school. The guys in the link aren't even middle-age school.

I can respect Tim Brown as the Raiders 'old school' pick, but I think Rich Gannon and Kenny Stabler also have legitimate claims to have been included.  Janikowski should have gotten the nod over Carson Palmer for the current player slot.

Old school is Sammy Baugh.  4 TD passes and 4 INT's in the SAME GAME.  That's old school.

meanmutton: smerfnablin: So basically its going to come down to Joe Montana Vs Colin Kapernickwhatever

Ya, and 4 weeks of wasted voting

Lets see how the madden curse works out

If Calvin Johnson hasn't definitively proven the idea of the Madden Curse as bs, I don't know what will.


that and it's simple math/logic that the player won't be able to have a follow up career year, or even play in every game next year.

Or Howie Long.  Or Fred Belitnikoff.  Or Marcus Allen in the proper uniform.


Or Kurt Warner in the right school AND the right uniform.

And WTF is Jake Locker doing there?!
