Clash of the Titans

Has anyone else seen the ESPN show where they have this tournament of people playing each other in Madden? It's surprisingly watchable--I feel more emotionally involved than I typically do for any non-Bears game.

It also showcases how ridiculously bad the animations were for the first two Xbox 360 Madden games.

Next gen sports game have been an embarrassment. If anything, though, what it really highlights is market competition--for their first years of monopoly on NFL the Madden team decided to strip *all* season abd franchise functionality and a ton of other functionality from the next gen games so they could REINTRODUCE it in the new games when it had already been in PS2! Absurd.

I think it was like 1 o'clock on Thursday afternoon. So, not something that necessarily caters to the employed, but maybe it repeats?
