“Madden NFL 17” came out last week, and EA Sports will be sending out an update so it can include COLIN KAEPERNICK’S National Anthem protest.
Unfortunately . . . or FORTUNATELY . . . we won’t actually see him sitting down during a San Francisco game. Because of the anthem, that is . . . you can totally make him ride the bench during the actual game.
Instead, it’ll be an update to the game’s COMMENTARY, which will also feature future breaking news on injuries, trades, free agency signings, and stuff like that.
It probably won’t be elaborate . . . EA just said it would be a “brief, in-game mention.” Actually, it would’ve been nice if this whole story could’ve been reduced to that.
It’s unclear when the update will be available.
