  1. As expected, the word "live" doesn't appear once in their writeup lol. They would be foolish to showcase an unedited version of Madden 21 (especially if they're using the Next Gen game) in any of these formats... particularly the Sunday afternoon one. Would love for the world (or more accurately the 50 people that actually watch the pro bowl) to see the many glaring bugs in the game so Madden 22 can make some real progress in the series, but unfortunately it appears those will be edited out.
    Why do they have to get so stupid with it? Just set it up as a CPU vs. CPU game with the real rosters and let it play. We don't need to see people actually playing.
    The videos of all the glitches and issues from this game have reached a level of absurdity that is unconscionable.  Yet ironically, Madden has had its most sales success.  Marketing is a hell of a drug....

    I mean the actual NFL Pro Bowl with real NFL players actually playing football already gets terrible ratings as is.
    Why in the world would the NFL want to put out a CPU vs. CPU video game version of it?
    Let's think about this for a second.
    Knowing that Josh Allen grew up playing the NFL 2k series and liked it more than the Madden series,it would be hilarious if during the airing of the Madden 21 Pro Bowl,Allen came onscreen and said something like "I just stopped by to see if Madden ever became better than NFL 2k5. No? Alright,see ya!"
    I still love Madden and was really hoping for a good positive showing on this Pro Bowl show. However, the players they chose seemed to be having a great time just jawing each other and the game just seemed incidental. They may have just as well been playing monopoly. Actually, I found all the loud talking and constant laughing pretty irritating.
    I enjoy Madden so I was trying to pay close attention to what was happening on the field but I can't see how anyone with mild interest would really care, as nothing stood out as exciting or interesting.
    I was a bit surprised that they chose those particular players, most of whom had very little experience. You'd think out of all the players in the league, there would be 6 almost-household-name guys (and 2 outside celebrities) that are experienced Madden players to make this a memorable competition. That would have really shown the world that Madden is a force that they should look into.
    The only thing that kept my interest late was in knowing that Snoop Dogg is a good player and he may have had a chance to bring his team back, but even that fell apart.
