I wouldn't mess with curses that have proven track records.

Even if there is no such thing as a curse, you have to look at the results. Even if it is pure coincidence, that coincidental tendency is enough to make me shy away. Last season was my first as a FF player, and when I did my first draft I didn't even really know about the Madden curse. I ended up taking SA 2nd overall, with LT going 3rd :~( That team ended up 11-3; imagine if I had learned about the Madden curse before hand.

I have a logical, scientific mind, and I have the thought process that once is luck, twice is coincidence, and thrice is ulterior motive/outside influence. So I wonder what this is; I believe we're now into the 10th year, and no Madden cover player has A. had a normal season after gracing the cover, or B. never been the same in years following(read: Eddie George). !+)

Thanks to eagles21 for the awesome sig :)

Took somebody long enough to bring this up. I thought about it when VY first pulled up lame.

On a dark lit tour bus, Madden is standing over a cauldrin full of eyes of newt, spider legs, frog guts, Bret Favre piss, and a single cleat....laughing evilly. MEWHAHAHAHAHAH!
