Well, Seahawks fans, we have good news and bad news. EA Sports is putting the power of choosing a cover athlete for Madden 12 in the fans' hands, but here in Seattle, we kind of got the shaft. The bad news: No Seahawks players made the final bracket -- the only team to accomplish such a feat. The good news: You could be on the Madden 12 bracket.
No, seriously, you could be featured on the Madden 12 cover when EA releases the game this summer. That's right, instead of a Seattle athlete, the 12th man is the Seahawks representation in the bracket contest. Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Michael Vick have nothing on the 12th man, and now is your chance to prove it. Could you blame EA Sports for its inability to find a suitable player from Seattle to feature, instead opting to pick the raucous fans that populate Qwest Field?
Go show EA what Seattle is all about. Vote early and often ... for yourself. Let's just hope the Madden cover jinx doesn't extend to fans if we can pull this off. Madden 12 and the 12th man seem like a match made in heaven.
