At the 2011 Electric Entertainment Expo, Electronic Arts (EA Sports) pulled out all the stops in unveiling their newest version of the great NFL video game, Madden 2012. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was joined onstage by Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, Jr. and Cleveland Browns running back, Peyton Hillis to present Madden '12.
Hillis was the underdog winner in fan voting to be on the cover of the video game, beating out Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick. In the March Madness-type of bracket voting, Hillis won his first round of voting over Ravens running back Ray Rice, who actually did not want to be on the video game cover, preferring not to tempt the so-called "Madden Curse."
Hillis and the Browns fans who joined together to vote him in obviously weren't concerned, although from an opposing fan's point of view, I guess they must think they certainly have nothing to lose in their case.
