Default Peyton Hillis is Madden NFL 12's Cover Star



After more than a month of voting by nearly 13 million people, Madden fans have decided the cover athlete for Madden NFL 12 will be Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis.
Hillis faced stiff competition throughout the process; besides defeating Vick in the final round, he also received 61% of the vote when he went up against reigning Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.

The NFL's lockout situation remains up in the air. This year's Madden will be released on August 30 regardless of whether a new CBA can be agreed to -- though EA Sports is certainly hoping it gets resolved.

I wonder what kind of injury he is going to get this season...

Not really. It is court ordered to be lifted. The League has told the teams not to engage in any contract negotiations with any player, even the rookies they draft tonight as they appeal the decision with a higher court. The saga is continuing. As ESPN put it today, Dad told them to get back to work, so they are now going to cry to Mom and see if she will rule in their favor.

The NFL is going through the appeal process, but from what I've heard on ESPN the chances of the appeal going through is almost nothing, but at least they've done something.

Yeah the chances are slim that it will go through, but the Owners have not heard anything from League Official on what they should do yet so every player who doesnt have a contract will not be negotiated with and every drafted rookie will not be signed until the Owners hear what they should do. Since the League is upset at the ruling I highly doubt they will force the issue with contracts and trades leaving everyone to wonder what will happen come Training Camp time.

Seems we were wrong. As of today the lockout is back on.

That's disappointing. I really hope they get something done before training camp.
