Tough Accusations On The Virtual Gridiron

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 12, 2011 – 1:16 pm

In order to make it to the highest level of the football world, players have to have an obsession with the game.  That means, even when players have the day off, they still come in to the facilities to work out and watch game film.  And when they go home, it’s time to fire up the game system for a face-off in Madden ’12.

The premier matchup of the day on Tuesday was a Battle Royale between rookies DeJon Gomes and Jarvis Jenkins.

[Editor's Note: Jenkins is still working his way back from a preseason ACL tear, and is making good progress with his rehab.  He said that he's walking around without support now, and has been really aggressive in his rehabilitation sessions.  "I've got good stability now and it's not really buckling on me," he said.  "I have good range of motion back, and I'd love to start running soon--whenever I get the doctor's approval."]

Fortunately for Jenkins, his thumbs are in great condition, and he was in control of the game as the clock ticked down in the fourth quarter.  But in a stunning display of offensive onslaught, Gomes snatched the come-from-behind victory from the jaws of defeat.

Naturally, this led to Twitter allegations of Gomes cheating for the win.  He responded by asking:

The plot thickened when Brandon Banks met a similar fate in his Madden game with Gomes:

So in order to get to the bottom of the allegations, I had to interview the original plaintiff, to hear his side of the story.

“Every time I play Gomes, I always lose,” Jenkins admitted today.  “I just say he cheats, to feel better, but he’s pretty good.  It makes me mad, so I make up excuses.  I gotta find a way to beat him.”

The truth comes out, with a vow from Jenkins to avenge his previous losses.  He also noted that he challenged Banks to a loser’s bracket game, to no avail.

“I was gonna play Banks, but he said he went to sleep,” Jenkins said skeptically.  “That’s what he said anyway, and he’s sticking to that story.  I heard he’s pretty good, but we shall see when I play him.”

And in case anyone was wondering, Aldrick Robinson, a man not even associated with the controversy, declared himself Madden King of this Tuesday, Oct. 11:

Never a dull moment for these competitors.

    It pisses me off that Trent Williams was assigned a 65 rating for his stamina…if you play the game with fatigue “on,” he can’t finish a drive because he is too tired. It’s a conspiracy. Even 3rd string guards on the team have high 70 ratings.

    So while playing on madden ’12 I’m pretty sure the announcers say “A. Ryan Kerrigan” ….whenever they say his name. Might just me be me though but hopefully im not the only one.

    @chucky i hear P Ryan Kerrigian (PS3).. I was wondering the same thing.

    Ryan Kerrigan’s First Name is Patrick, that’s why you hear the P. Ryan Kerrigan… Even in Madden the dude is a beast…

    Have you guys heard them call Hankerson Lester G though? Explain that one, haha…
