Madden Renewed

EA Signs John Madden to Multi-Year Agreement (thanks Frans) has word that the famed ex-coach turned announcer has renewed his deal to be the face and voice of the long-running football franchise. Bam! There's an article on this on CNN Money speculating that EA's NFL hegemony will return the franchise to its full-price roots.

Someone with some more knowledge of law / politics would be helpful on this.

Do the sports industries actually count as private entities? I mean, congress is bitching at them all the time, they all have a "commissioner", which somehow seems to indicate that they are in a bit of a special status. Isn't this whole exclusive deal that they've all signed now with the developer who gave them the most money "illegal" since it robs people of choice?

As for EA, fuck you. Madden was worth it for 20 bucks, it's not for 50, and definitely not for 60. Sadly, there are millions of lemmings who disagree and will keep buying the game even though EA will make ZERO improvements on them for the next ten years.
