A tweet has been making the rounds this morning (see below), featuring an Aaron Hernandez card being unlocked in NCAA 14. Because of the timing of the release of NCAA 14 (the game comes out tomorrow), Hernandez is still featured in the game.


EA Sports has quickly acted on the matter, with a message from their spokesperson:

“We made a decision to remove Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 and NCAA Football 14. Because NCAA Football 14 was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez’ image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer. However, he is not in the game, and anyone who unlocks that particular Nike Skills Trainer reward will receive an Alex Smith Ultimate Team player item instead. The image of Hernandez will be removed via a Title Update in the near future.”

He won’t be on the Patriots in the upcoming Madden 14, being released from the team after being charged with first-degree murder. He also won’t even show up on the free agent roster. Smart move by EA.

  1. So EA can remove Murderers from the game so what’s their excuse for leaving Jovan Belcher in the game there were numerous roster updates and they still left him in.

  2. Murderer? Innocent until proven guilty, Pat. Just like that douche bag team called the Patriots, u are quick to judge. If, in a court of law, it is proven but until then save your judgement call.

    As soon as a person gets into trouble with the law, everyone jumps ship. In sports u are just a commodity.

    & no I will not swap my Hernandes jersey.

  3. “Yo”, no one cares that you’re keeping your Hernandez jersey and it’s too bad that people like yourself still support him. Do some reading and you’ll see who Hernandez really is. He’s definately NO HERO!!
