EA Sports is doing a March Madness-style tournament to decide who gets on the cover of Madden 12 this year. Each team has one nominee. Guys like Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, and Larry Fitzgerald are representing their teams.
Know who’s representing the Seahawks?
Me! And all the 12s everywhere! Yep … the Seahawks nominee is the 12th Man, the Seahawks fans as a group.
How awesome is that??!!??
“The Seahawks have a lot of great players on the team,” said Christopher Erb, vice president of brand marketing for EA Sports. “But with the whole idea about integrating fan voting, Seattle’s just got this huge fan base – this whole 12th Man – and it’s always the loudest stadium.
“So it just made a lot of sense for us to kind of celebrate the idea of the fans, and there was no better city to do that for than Seattle.”
Hey 12s, and I know some of you are reading this, start voting now.
