People are so cowed by the NFL. And for each individual politician, there is a lot of benefit to cozying around with the owners and sitting in the owner’s box, and a lot of possible harm if you are the one who is blamed for a team moving from state to another. But if we can’t take away a silly financial benefit enjoyed by one of the wealthiest, most subsidized organizations in the United States, what problem of government can we fix?

From SBNATION:

THE BREAKING MADDEN SUPER BOWL:THE MACHINE IS BLEEDING TO DEATH

“Over the course of the season, I’ve discovered lots of different ways to hack Madden NFL 25 into a thing that no longer resembles football as we know it. I’ve played around with rules, injury settings, all manner of player ratings, player dimensions, and anything else the game’s developers have made available to us.

This time is special, though, because I’m pulling out every single one of the stops at the same time. No other scenario I’ve built in Madden has been so abjectly cruel or unfair; no other scenario has even been close.”

Jon Bois of the SBNation crew played Dr. Frankenstein with Madden NFL 25 to create the most one-sided and ridiculous Super Bowl scenario using all of the customization and creation tools within the game. The result: he basically broke the game.

The whole scenario and the teams he created is a hoot and worth read if enjoy the possibility of creating disastrous scenarios in video games. It was an experiment in creating chaos, and chaos reigned.

Wow. Great! As per request on fyprocessing.tumblr.com earlier this week…..drawing with undo. Hamoid makes it look easy. Wonderful work. What a wonderful person and a wonderful sharing community of coders.
