Yahoo - Following in the path of the NCAA, the Southeastern Conference has decided to cease licensing its name and trademarks to EA Sports. What does this mean for next year’s edition of “College Football 2015”? There will be no SEC Championship Game or any references to the conference that has fielded the last seven national title winners. However, you will still have the ability to play as individual schools from the league, unless they decide to withdraw from the game as well.
“Each school makes its own individual decision regarding whether or not to license their trademarks for use in the EA Sports game(s),” said the SEC in a statement. “The Southeastern Conference has chosen not to do so moving forward.”
According to Ralph D. Russo at the AP, both the Pac-12 and Big Ten are also declining to renew their deal with EA Sports.
As if it wasn’t already insulting enough that that gigantic jacked 6’6 274 pound black dude with dreadlocks is “#7 on South Carolina”, or that skinny white kid with acne #2 on Texas A&M can’t be called by his name and is portrayed as just a random college football player, now you can’t even mention the
only best conference in college football? In a college football video game. Just a bunch of random players shaped exactly like real players playing some football in unnamed conferences against other teams in the same unknown conference. Could be just time to call it a series?
Whatever, just happy to see something actually starting to change with this licensing shit. Student athoolleetes, hoho now that’s brilliant sir. Now when we sell their likeness for video games how do we get around paying for our slav…”student athletes” then?
