Thoughts on the Final Madden Roster Update

When the final roster update for Madden 10 was released one change caught everyone by surprise. Players who had retired in the time between the end of their season and when the update arrived were removed, most notable of them being Kurt Warner. Upon discovering this I posted the article on the subject and hoped to get a comment on why the action was taken. As far as I know their removal represented the only time that off-season transactions were made in the game for a season that had just completed.

The response I got back was that the decision to remove the players in question was made because they retired before the end of the season. This being the first time it was ever done it feels like an opportunity to get feedback on the subject. Whether it could ultimately result in those players being brought back or if it would be used just for consideration in the future appears up in the air right now.

Do you feel that transactions that take place after the season is over for a player/team but before the final Super Bowl update arrives should be included? Or should players that spent the season with a team stay on that particular roster regardless of what happens in that time period? Leave your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll below.

    updated roster should be as accurate as possible. so he should be gone. and he is. dont get excited by the name. follow the rule. you want authentic rosters? He retired. What are you all crying and asking for? He retired before the Super Bowl. You idiots cried for a FINAL ROSTER BEFORE THE SUPERBOWL SO YOU GOT A VERY AUTHENTIC ONE. How do you find a way to bitch about that to? Losers who dont get their way, making up rules and crying when someone makes a bold move. You pansies. I cant believe you are all the MEN of the future…you all are idiots.

    This is dumb. Every update should improve the realism of the game. This does not do that. In addition, I can imagine that if I were an Arizona Cardinals fan, I would probably be a Kurt Warner fan. If I can’t play with Kurt in March or June, I think it makes it less likely that I play the game at all.

    They Shouldn’t be removed since there respective replacements have not been named on the dept chart. or haven’t been drafted yet. Ok

    No one cares about these bums retiring. We want to know about online franchise for 2011

  • Bisett

    If Warner was still on roster

    no one would be bitching.

    to be honest i wish that madden would skip years in between games and only do roster updates, but really stay on top of them. most of the time the game from year to year is just about the same with a few little things thrown in. instead i wish that they would do madden 11 as pure roster updates and patches, like giving you wembly stadium as a playing field or something, and take the time to make madden 12 the best of the franchise.

  • Wozza

    but then that basically defeats the purpose of having any roster updates in the first place…

  • tunes522

    really that was addressed to the people who whine, “now it is impossible to get the Kurt Warner achievement”…

  • JoeCB91

    Like I said before, I’m fine with using Matt Leinart. He does have one of the best ratings for a Backup QB.

    But I don’t like being forced to use him in a game for the season where Warner was the starter for the entire year. Warner should have stayed, they can take him out for Madden 11 but not Madden 10.

  • isiah

    This is madden 10 not Madden 11 !!! give us Kurt Warner!!! bad move by ea sports!!

  • isiah

    I WISH I DIDNT SAVE THE LAST ROSTER UPDATE !!! HOW CAN WE RELIVE THE 09-2010 SEASON NOW!! I HOPE THE GIVE UP A PASS ROSTER DOWNLOAD WHERE KURT WARNER IS IN THE GAME!!!

    i completely agree about the 3rd string thing, your are 100 percent right they would not care or give a damn, no one has said a damn thing about b. berry or j. seau because they are not as good as warner. but i dont think they should have been taken out. people are just bitches. but i do think EA has fucked up major they turned madden 2010 into madden 2009 with the ratings.

    my point is STOP bitching about warner you dumbasses, if you just bitch about warner your an idiot. if you bitch about all the players including warner who were removed then its fine but not just because it makes the cardinals suck.

    One of the things I like about Madden was the fact that I was using the roster from the actual team. If they retire, they should be removed from the roster just like real life.
