Old people play videogames now, EA. You’re going to have to find a new place to break the law. That is, if a lawsuit — headed up by NFL retiree Bernie Parrish — succeeds in landing the mega-publisher firmly on its hindquarters.
According to the jilted ex-player, John Madden has pulled in “over $100,000,000 in royalties” from the ungodly successful pigskin-tosser, while retired NFL players haven’t seen a single cent, even though the games allegedly use their likenesses. Parrish and co. plan to sue in response.
Last year, retirees scored $28 million in a similar suit against the NFL Players Association. EA and Madden are probably having one final, excessively passionate makeout session with their money before saying goodbye.

Dave Pear, Oakland Raiders defensive tackle, has published a National Football League Players Association report that shows how much EA payed out to the NFLPA in 2007. The grand total amounts to a staggering $35 million.
This figure does not include the cash EA paid to the NFL for the right to use any licensing, which if you take into account the different team logos, names, stadiums, and other NFL-owned properties, would amount to “a lot”.
The news of this large monetary amount adds more fuel to the fire started by NFL retirees last year, who feel they’ve been shortchanged by the NFL.
