Madden Ratings Czar, Donny Moore, Leaving EA Sports

catch

People love to hate him (and, some years, hate to love him), but he’s leaving all that behind. Donny Moore, who has served as the Madden NFL “ratings czar,” is leaving EA after 16 years at the company.

Moore has been responsible for determining player ratings, drawing criticism (and praise) from players and fans alike. He’s been lobbied by NFL stars who think their stats should be higher, and the object of derision for those up-and-comers who have yet to earn the 99 rating they think they so richly deserve.

You have to wonder what this means for Madden 16. I personally thought he did a fairly decent job the last few games.
