There are a lot of curses in sports, several of them relate to covers. There’s the curse of the Sports Illustrated cover and the curse of the Madden cover.
Actually, I think if you’re on the cover of anything other than GQ or Esquire, you’re probably going to be cursed in some way. That’s because dudes who are on the cover of those magazines get ass — mad ass. See Brady, Tom.
Thanks to ESPN, you can decide who to curse this year. The network and EA Sports, the company who makes Madden, is letting fans select the cover boy for Madden ’12.
The Green Bay Packers’ representative is quarterback [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink].
The vote is set up tournament-style, so each player faces a player from another team and the winner advances to the next round. Rodgers’ first-round opponent is [intlink id=”126″ type=”category”]Detroit Lions[/intlink] defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
I’m not going to tell you what to do. I think Rodgers is immune to any kind of pressure, curse, hex, jinx or otherwise, but just to be safe, I’m going to stuff the ballot box for [intlink id=”127″ type=”category”]Atlanta Falcons[/intlink] quarterback Matt Ryan.
Ryan, AKA Matty Ice, AKA Matty Never Won A Playoff Game In His Career, is the most overrated player in the league, in my estimation. He needs a good curse so we never have to hear some moron call him Matty Ice again.
I think the cover of Madden should do it.
Alternatively, if you want curse a whole bunch of people, you can vote for the [intlink id=”147″ type=”category”]Seattle Seahawks[/intlink]’ representative, the 12th man.
You can vote here.
I will personally be clicking on Erin Rogers 1 million times to send the curse YOU’RE way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You girls were so godam lucky last year it makes me laugh. Enjoy Ms Flynn next year cuz we gonna roll over this division with whatever first round QB we pick up. Or better yet, Carson Palmer. Who would look pretty good in purple I must say but than again who doesn’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS This Blog sucks!
PSS Peckers Suck!!!
Vince, just how many super bowls have the vikings won? Zero? HAHAHAHA SKOL MY DICK!
I don’t mean to call attention to your whore mother’s eroded cunt, but I cant help but think that as you were careening out of that cavernous love canal on your birthday, your head must’ve hit a ledge or maybe it was a love bead that got caught up there from the several dudes who followed your dad that fateful night. Either way, We are sorry for your head injury and pray that your retarded condition is not hereditary.
Keep sucking your sister’s dick, you mouth breathing son of a succubus. The vikings horns just provide a better pair of handles for us to mouthfuck you with. Your entire team is the biggest collection of choke-prone losers. What will be really enjoyable is watching the Lions dig out of the cellar and put your purple cunt team in last place in the division. Does Skol translate to never winning a super bowl?
Not sure you can talk too much since your team has NEVER won a Superbowl. (Fact)
But if you do decided to try your hand at trash talking, at least attempt to construct a well written attack. Using “you’re” when you mean “your” is making you look ignorant and uneducated. Keep in mind the proper usage of “your” and “you’re” is something you should of learned in elementary school. The fact that an adult can’t properly write at a grade level of elementary school children does not help your cause nor does it bring any credibility to your argument that the Vikings are superior. But if you are really in elementary school, then carry on and my apologize.
By the way, Packers are still WORLD CHAMPIONS!
Should’ve (should have)…not should of.
If only the Queens could’ve been so lucky! Yea get another retread like Palmer to run that pathetic offense. I think it’s 4 to 0 in SB’s.
God damn is it funny hearing a Vikings fan talk shit and then brag how they are going to get Carson Palmer. WTF is Carson Palmer going to do for you you fag, he’s washed up. Gary put it plain and simple go get yourself another retread and watch yourself burn to the ground!
Yeah, holy shit! The Packers were so damn lucky! They only had to beat the 3 highest seeded NFC teams on the road, and then win the Super Bowl with 3 key starters out for the 2nd half! I mean, how lucky is that shit? Viking fans are nearly as hilarious and pathetic as their team.
Aaron Rodgers will put the silly “Madden Curse” to bed once and for all this year! Bring it on!
I can’t believe they didn’t offer up the Packers 2 picks for the cover. I mean you’d think Greg Jaymings “I put the team on my back, doh” would have to be a contender…
Drew Brees didnt get cursed this year!!
I’m not one for curses, but when it comes to the packers…I’m not taking any chances.
first link didn’t work, too much traffic!!

I was at a party tonight. A guy who lives 30 miles from Green Bay saying the same thing, Packers got lucky.
How do you grow up 30 miles from Green Bay and be a Vikings fan you ask? Simple, you have to be fucked up in the head and like purple.
Aren’t the Green Bay Packers the world champs?
I live in MN and i <3 the Packers and all these queens fans are all loving the limelight being shined on them! Its Hilarious because they dont care about winning!
