Mike Vick to be removed from Madden 2008
As I reported back in my Madden 2008 review, EA is planning to remove Vick from the game with the first roster update. I first received reports from fellow Maddenites, now Wire has received confirmation from EA. The roster update should be sent out sometime in the next two weeks, before the start of the NFL season.
Back in July Vick was indicted in dogfighting charges. Today the courts and Vick came to a plea deal, with Vick admitting to the dogfighting charges. Vick will be sentenced December 10th, and is expected to spend 12 to 18 months in jail.
