Could this be the end of EA? Amazon has shown they don’t not know how to manage a videogame company.

All the folks recently hired by Amazon for their NFL broadcasts must be licking their lips at the idea of being the new announcers on Madden as well.

This isn’t USA TODAY’s reporting. The “For the Win” sports blog outsources gaming coverage to a Swedish company called GLHF, so it’s a third-party post on a sports blog on a USAT subdomain.

Can’t imagine this is doing wonders for GLHF lining up more outlets to post on, though if it somehow winds up being accurate…?

Eh, it's fine. And maybe the debunking will be debunked! The author of the original article stands by it (stands-by-it-ish?).
