      but Roger Godell and the players union continue to stick with EA and Madden NFL and NFL 2k game would set the world on fire. the NFL either needs to re do the exclusive contract or open it up for at least take two.

      including a street mode is a good idea…..adding all-star weekend 3 point shootout and dunk contest even better.
