Houshmandzadeh: 'I'm not playing Madden no more'

Among certain circles, the annual release of the new version of John Madden's video game is treated as a national holiday.

But Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh won't be celebrating when Madden '10 comes out next month, telling a national radio host he'll be boycotting the game in protest over his player rating.

"Man, they don't get my rating right," Houshmandzadeh said while appearing on Colin Cowherd's ESPN Radio show Monday. "I just looked at the game and they have this wrong and that wrong. And I understand I averaged 10 yards a catch (in 2008), but it's the offense, man, not me."

For the record, Houshmandzadeh has a rating of 91, making him the sixth-highest ranked wide receiver in the NFC, behind only Larry Fitzgerald (99), Steve Smith (97), Anquan Boldin (94), Roddy White (93) and Calvin Johnson (92). Also for the record, Houshmandzadeh had 904 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2008. Just for comparison purposes, all five NFC wideouts ranked ahead of him put up better numbers; each had at least 1,038 receiving yards and scored at least six TDs.

But according to Houshmandzadeh, those numbers are lying. And he'll be giving the PlayStation a rest until the truth is told.

"I'm not playing Madden no more, until they get my rating right," Houshmandzadeh said. "It might be a little pouting, too. It might be. But, you know, I used to be the best in the world at Madden, so I'm going to miss not playing it. But until they do me right, I'm not playing it no more."

Oh no! EA better stop making Madden. Instead of selling 4,500,000 copies of the game, this year they will only sell 4,499,999 copies of the game.

It is good to see that some of Ocho's Stinko rubbed off on ol' Douchebagzadeh, even if they are playing 2000 miles apart now.

He's never been the most humble of football players. Although I'm sure every receiver in the game probably thinks their rating on Madden should be higher. Housh just seems to be the only one stupid enough to voice it publicly...

91 overall & the 6th best WR rating in the game?

Yeah- they should fix that up...a bit too high..

If they make him 81 overall & double digits in rankings- will Doushy play again?

Yeah I was listening to the Cowherd show when he said that and I thought he was joking at first. But then he kept going on about it and sounded serious and I started cracking up.

So Mike and Mike just did a "breakdown" of the ratings and basically blasted him for saying that his ratings aren't right. They compared him to Fitzgerald who is highest rated and Calvin Johnson who is right above Doush, and couldn't believe he was complaining.

He also claimed to be "best of the world" at that game. :lol:

If he was 6th among NFL WR's, I would have been okay with it, but since he is only 6th among NFC WR's, I will boycott along with him. :)

There must be some way for the gaming community to compensate for this planet-rending travesty. Perhaps Atari can bring out a commemorative version of their 2600 football game with Hashmandungpile on the cover.
