T.J. Houshmandzadeh Boycotts Madden 10

T.J. Houshmandzadeh’s over inflated sense of self worth has him boycotting the newest Madden game. Why you may ask? Good question! Looks like EA and the developers at Madden only gave him an overall rating of 91, which makes him the 6th best wide receiver in the game. That just doesn’t cut it with old T.J.

T.J. was quoted as saying:

I understand I averaged 10 yards a catch, but it’s the offense, not me. I’m not playing Madden no more until they get my rating right. … I used to be the best in the world at Madden. I’m going to miss not playing it, but until they do me right, I’m not playing it any more.

Nothing says I am a spoiled brat of an NFL player like dogging your old team and then saying you are boycotting a video game. I wonder what Peter Moore thought about this when he heard the news? My guess would be, [email protected] T.J. or at least that is what I was thinking.

Does EA really give a flying [email protected] if one cry baby of a wide receiver decides to boycott Madden? I highly doubt it, in fact if I were EA I would answer back by dropping his rating further and removing his name from the game. Call him Generic WR #84, this may drive old T.J. over the edge completely and make him quit football all together!
