EA cover curse

Donavan McNabb in the 2005 season opener suffered a sports hernia that would eventually require surgery. He decided to hold off on the surgery until a groin injury in the tenth game of the year ended his season.


On 28th November 2005, Pernell Harris sues Electronic Arts over the NFL Superstar mode in Madden NFL 06. He claims to have met with the company in 2003 to discuss his game Heart of a Champion, in which players guide an athlete from high school to professional football. He accuses EA of breaching an "implied in fact contract" by using those features without compensation and violation of a confidentiality agreement.
