Watching the abysmal behavior of L’il Man towards SomeSerious during their matchup at the Madden Bowl yesterday, there were multiple (as in, easily 100+) calls in chat for L’il Man to be disqualified.
Yet, the announcers kept the camera on him and kept talking up how great his gameplay was (although they admittedly did NOT interview him after the match, as they normally do with all other winners).
Trash talk is one thing. But for anyone who watched that farce yesterday, this was so far over the cliff that it made the entire event seem cheap and tawdry—and especially so that the announcers seemed to cheer him on, and that there was no statement from EA either during the broadcast (or even today), whether live or on social media.
Does EA have no Standards & Practices involvement here? No clause in top-tier competitive contracts, requiring at least a basic level of sportsmanship and personal conduct?
