I got Madden 08, so it would take something huge for me to get Madden 09. But if they use Bryant Gumble, I swear to Flying Spaghetti Monster I'll never buy this game again.

I'd rather have 60 minutes of "BOOM goes the dynamite".

Well, this could go two ways. They have the ESPN and NFL licenses. I suppose we can assume that they are going to use the Gumbel/Collinsworth combo or Tirico/Jaworski/Kornheiser crew. If it's Gumbel/Collinsworth I'd likely turn the volume down and never, ever turn it up again. I sure hope the NFL didn't pressure EA to use their commentators to help push the NFL Network.

I don't think a network contract eliminates the possiblity of a commentator being on another video game. Look at Kevin Harlen, Sony has TNT but he's on NBA 2K8 along with Kenny Smith.

I hope its Joe Buck and Troy Aikman or Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. I just think its cool to hear the top combs from TV doing my games as well. They aren't the top teams on their networks for nothing.

But at least we're getting SOMEBODY.....The radio guy is gone....Let's have a parade!!!!!!!!!

I am going to go out on a limb, and says they will have two sets of broadcasters. the NFL Network guys and the ESPN guys.

I am probably dreaming though

A dream scenario would be EA signing with CBS and using their College Football and NFL presentation; Simms and Nance would be awesome. The best tandem in the NFL right now.

Imagine NCAA football with the CBS college football theme? That would be insane.

No, but EA would be putting any future contracts with ESPN and the NFL at risk by using another broadcast team.
