This isn't limited to video games, Chissler. Long before the Madden Curse came along there was the Sports Illustrated Curse. Seemed like any
athlete not named Michael Jordan who graced the cover and every college "sleeper" pick they slapped on their NCAA prediction cover went down hard
within a few weeks of the issue.
Honestly though, I tend to write almost anything like this off to simple coincidence... but that Madden thing is eerily accurate. Just to be on the
safe side, I have sent several proposals and requests to EA insisting that from now until eternity they ONLY put Oakland Raiders on the cover of
Madden along with cameo covershots of Merriman and Rivers. (and as you may have already guessed, I'm a Bronco fan by the grace of God)
