Watch These Sports Stars React To Their Ratings In Video Games

Any time I interview a big sporting star -- whether it be a fighter, wrestler or soccer player -- I always ask the same question: how do you react when you see your ratings? Do you get angry if it's too low, reassured when its high? The answer is always the same: they don't bother, don't think about it, don't mind. But this awesome video suggests otherwise.

EA Sports gave NFL rookies a chance to rate themselves for the upcoming Madden video game. Then they gave them the wake-up call of their actual ratings. The reactions are perfect.

I love this idea. Despite the fact I know nothing about NFl, I can feel the pain. EA should do this for every sports game they have!

    what is a 'sports'?

      The third album by Huey Lewis and the News'

        Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

        I only know who they are because of "Back to the Future" :-)

    Reminds me of the "Mayhem" EAMMA video from ages ago, which was pretty funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfpkLpz30Ac

    Edit: Except for the laugh...
