Since we're on the topic of the Madden Curse, could someone post a list of who was on the past few years of the Madden cover and what exactly happened to them in the year they appeared on the cover? I have always heard of the curse, but never seen the full list of what happened.

The Dallas Clark incident is the first thing that has happened to actually get me interested in this. It's just nuts.

here's their little press release blurb about it as well

Open Letter of Apology to Mr. Dallas Clark
Dear Mr. Clark,

First, let us begin by saying you are an incredibly strong and handsome man. When we created the "Biggest Hit Ever" Madden '07 commercial featuring your virtual likeness, it was never our intention to portray you as anything but heroic and god-like. Unfortunately, filmmaking - even commercial filmmaking - is an often tumultuous and unpredictable process. Sometimes the best scenes are left wasted on the cutting room floor. Anyone who's seen the director's cut of "Blade Runner" or "Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach" knows exactly what I'm talking about. But I digress.

It's been reported in the media that you felt our little commercial made you "look like a punk" or "like you were dying." However, nothing could be further from the truth. Dallas Clark is not only the single greatest professional athlete of our time, he is also an American Hero. As proof, and as our way of saying sorry, we now present the Director's Cut version of your Madden '07 commercial. We think it also definitively proves your greatness in the virtual world.

In closing, you are a huge and powerful football god whom we do not wish to anger. We are tiny pathetic video game nerds. Please don't hurt us.

Sincerely,
Your adoring fans at Rooster Teeth
