NFLPA Loses Madden Suit

San Francisco Chrronicle has a follow-up to legal objections to the depiction of old-time players in the Madden series, saying a group of over 2,000 former players have been awarded $28 million in a verdict against the NFLPA. GamePolitics reports the case was influenced by some "smoking gun" emails indicating the NFLPA deliberately undervalued the payment to these former players for rights to their images in an effort to undercut Take-Two Interactive's efforts at creating a game featuring older players after EA scored its NFL exclusive. The Chronicle says defense lawyer Jeffrey Kessler "pleaded for minimal damages, saying the union's ability to represent active and retired players was at stake," and he calls the judgement "unjust as a matter of law," predicting it will be overturned.
