Accused murderer Aaron Hernandez removed from NCAA 14 and Madden 25

Joystiq- Aaron Hernandez, the New England Patriots tight end charged with murder on June 26, has been removed from Madden 25 and NCAA 14. Players that happen to unlock Hernandez's Ultimate Team card in NCAA 14 by getting a gold medal in the game's Shovel Option drill in the Skills Trainer mode will see the card turn into that of current Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. A future title update will remove Hernandez from the game entirely.

I know that the guy is likely guilty, but shouldn't they wait and remove him after he's been convicted?

pr0t0typeknuckles1989d ago

Nah,personally I think its better to remove him now than later,especially since videogames are in a darker light than theyve ever been in,if he is convicted just think of all the news articles saying videogames glorify convicted murderer,therefore videogames are evil.

Ashlen1989d ago

That's what I was thinking, but I know nothing about the case.

If the glove don't fit you must acquit!

Aclay1989d ago

I like the idea to wait and remove him after he's been convicted, but the Patriots have already released him and considering the evidence that's come out about the case, it doesn't look like he'll be on any NFL 2013 roster anyways-- so they might as well remove him now to distance themselves from him.

wsoutlaw871989d ago

the guys on tape with the gun talking about how he cant trust the victim anymore right before the shooting. The bullet casings were found in the idiots rental car and the victim texted his parents to let them know he was with hernandez. Plus the destruction of evidence. I get what you are saying and that he could be innocent but I agree with Robert Kraft (owner of the patriots), as I think the nfl does, that even if he didn't do it, he was involved way to closely with the case that they want nothing to do with him.

Future DLC titled "Aaron Hernandez is innocent." I think this is stupid to remove him from the games. Wait until he's at least found guilty.

iceman061989d ago

Well, the NFL DOES have a "Code Of Conduct" clause that pretty much allows them to do things like this. Sure, they rarely use it...but it's there. As for removing him from Madden, he's not playing next year anyway.

Dno1989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

to all those asking wait till he is found guilty clearly have not been following the case. Theres so much evidence that its almost 100% gonna happen.

If that is not enough the PATS already dropped him from the team. He is no longer part of the NFL anyway so why would he be part of an NFL game?

They even had a trade-in program last week for his jersey. He is tarnished for life, even if he does get out in 30-40 yrs he'll never get a decent job anywhere...except maybe burger king.
