    You should know the Madden curse.

    If you don't, it's when a player is featured on the Madden game cover, he ends up getting hurt, or something bad happens.

    Well, for 2009, they got Brett Favre on the cover...he retired.


    Anyone think something bad is going to happen to him?

    Meh, probably nothing. The guy's gettin' real old (for a football player at least) no duh he would retire soon.

    Mmmmm i dont know about the whole curse thing, i think there is just as high of a likleyhood for a proffesional athlete to get hurt even if he is not on a video game cover.

    The SI cover curse is complete bull. There have been thousands of issues of SI printed over the years, given the reality of sports and the pure volume of covers printed, there are going to be quite a few instances of someone getting injured after appearing on the cover. I would imagine that over 90% of all the covers printed would show no pattern of a curse.

    Yea, it's more than likely bull. Reminds me of that Bambino Curse or whatever the hell it was called. In that particular case, some people just can't accept the fact that they suck and blame it on a curse.

    Does anybody remember the "Curse" of the "WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw" games? Whatever wrestler had a storyline with the Undertaker died in real life.

    "Smackdown Vs Raw 2006"
    Chapter 2- Urning Your Respect

    In this chapter you face Eddie Guerrero who steals Undertakers urn and now Eddie controlls everything the Undertaker does. Eventually you help Undertaker out and get his urn back, but in the end of the chapter, Undertaker chokeslams Eddie Guerrero onto a casket and closes it shut. Sadly, 2 days after the game came out (November 15th) Eddie Guerrero was found dead in his hotel toom


    "WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2007"
    Chapter 1- The Rabid Wolverine and The Deadman


    In this chapter, you are caught in the middle of a fued with Chris Benoit and The Undertaker. Eventually, you decide the outcome of the fued, by having it finish with 'Taker winning or Benoit winning. During a backstage cutscene in the game, Benoit confronts Undertaker and they have an exchange of words. Heres the creepy part, The Undertaker says something like this, "Benoit, when your family mourns over your dead carcass, they will have no one to blame for it but you". Then on June 25th 2007 Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son and killed himself...

    Moot point, retard. How can a game related curse strike someone that is not playing?

    When they retire Brett's number on their Monday Night Opener, the jersey will spontaneuously combust and a hang glider will crash right into Brett, sending him to the hospital. Sure he'll live, but he'd be living in a wheelchair for the rest of his life...

    Even the Almighty Favre stands no chance against the Madden Curse! MUHAHAHAHAHA!!!
