EA does not care for people who are not investors. Removing Kaepernick's name out of songs in Madden two years in a row reveals it. Companies don't want you to defend themlet their attorneys do that work. EDIT: Let me be clear. I'm all for calling a spade a spade and being happy when I'm surprised by something like this. But we should not praise a business for reaching the absolute bare minimum. It feels just like throwing a party for when your friend says"Hey guys I'm not racist" after he said the N word a year ago. You are not cool and ethical for thanking companies for not spitting on  Madden nfl 21 coins you. We should praise companies who show patterns of positivity. Feel free to disagree, but please don't act like this specific case is this incredibly complex morally-grey circumstance. I mean I believed there were pretty strict regulations whose titles and likeliness may be utilized in Madden.

Like Belicheck and Payton are not in Madden since they are not a part of the NFLCA and that's who EA includes a contract with. They may have to pay Kap if his title is used and are likely avoiding that. That and Kap is not exactly welcome in the NFL world (not talking about fans) anymore. They backpeddled and apologized if they have been called out. They do not have rights to Kap's likeness in the game however they could mention him in the tune (as they have with plenty of other public characters in different songs). The simple fact that they did this 2 years in a row indicates it wasn't an innocent oversight but a genuine choice to collaborate using a essentially racist act of collusion inside the NFL. I'm not defending a provider. I'm not saying EA is some bastion of justice. Most people generally (not merely reddit) can't see beyond black and white. Cynicism inspires outrage and outrage inspires more clicks. That is why negativity floats to the top in all social websites. That's why negativity floats to the top in most social websites. This is a significant factor. Youtube for one has done studies, because it's a massive part of their business and they want to know it. There's been testimony to congress about it I've watched but can't find right now. What they need is participation and the more negatively styled something is that the more folks will click it when it comes up in your recommendations.

Companies don't need you to defend them, let their attorneys do that work. "Firms don't need one to defend them", but attacking companies when they are doing the right thing is necessary and productive?It doesn't matter if it's for PR reasons, they're still increasing awareness to this problem and hurting no one by doing this process. Meanwhile the men and women who see this as an opportunity to attack are just perpetuating a negative atmosphere of continuous whining. It's not so much about"protecting businesses" but about assaulting this needless negativity. So you are really only adding to the guy's argument by doing exactly what he explained. They're not doing anything however. They simply released a statement filled with empty rhetoric. You understand what doing something is? Not creating another Madden game since the NFL penalized players enjoy Kaepernick for carrying a knee. That would be remarkable. But we all know that's not what is going to happen. The simple fact that folks here are really behaving like this can be a meaningful gesture is so fucking baffling. EA literally moved out of its way to scrub his name out of their matches two decades straight, but this thread is making it seem like they've donated millions. It's the very definition of slacktivism.

It'd be more honest when they had said nothing in any way. Rather, they're gonna push out a bullshit PR statement about how they stand with the black community and then in a few months turn around and sell a product featuring a company which has a history of stifling and punishing black voices. I never mentioned"Let us strike a business for doing the ideal thing." My point, which I've tried to describe in an edit, is that we shouldn't PRAISE companies for doing the  buy mut coins madden 21 bare minimum of human decency when they have proven in the past to be contrary to what they're asserting. Actions speak louder than words. It is possible to always be optimistic of matters looking up, which I frequently am. If your friend hurts your feelings, they must regain your trust.
