Like many NFL fans who rushed out to get their hands on a copy of Madden NFL 13, the stars of the game themselves are picking up a controller and diving into the game. One of those players, former Cincinnati Bengals/New England Patriots/Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco)… PHEW!, picked up the game and came to an odd realization.
That awkward moment when you realize you’re not on Madden13 and have to create yourself…

Johnson was recently released from the Miami Dolphins and the Madden developers made the adjustment on their roster. However, unlike Johnson believed, they did not completely remove the 34-year-old wideout from the game. He is just located in the free agents list.
Here is the proof:
Johnson’s tweet just goes to show us how seriously some NFL players take Madden. They will often publicly complain about their ratings in the game or in Johnson’s case what he thought was his exclusion from the popular video game franchise.
As bad as Johnson thought he had it being left out of the game, at least he has his correct picture associated with his name. Look what happened to New York Giants defensive tackle Marcus Thomas:
This is actually the real Marcus Thomas:
So you see, Ocho, at least they got your picture right! Thomas went off on the folks at EA Sports for getting the picture wrong in a comedic series of tweets. While it was funny to read, Thomas clearly didn’t find the humor in it. At least EA Sports is getting what they want, people are talking about Madden NFL 13 and athletes and fans alike are paying attention.
