Quick Hits

The Main Event
WHAT?
EA Sports are dickbags.

WHAT ELSE?
The video game creators of FIFA 17 couldn't reach an agreement with Iceland - the slow clapping Euro 2016 sweetheart team with a dentist for head coach - meaning they won't be featured in the upcoming video game. Apparently EA Sports offered the country's national soccer team a whopping $15,000, to which the soccer club essentially farted at, saying “I really feel if we are giving away rights, or offering rights, it has to be proper negotiations and fair fees.”

This isn't the first time EA Sports has been worse than cancer. Back in 2004, Sega created a dope football game called ESPN NFL 2K5 for only $19.99. Not only was the game cheaper than EA Sports' $49.99 counterpart, Madden 2005, it was way better. 2K5 had ESPN integration, helmet cam, 2004 celebrity integration (Jamie Kennedy, Steve-O, David Arquette, Funkmaster Flex, Carmen Electra), and let you decorate your crib. How did EA Sports respond to this competition? EA Sports signed exclusive rights deals with the NFL and ESPN to prevent them from making the game anymore. Our feelings exactly.

THOUGHTS?
We haven't forgotten that there hasn't been a new NCAA Football video game since 2013...

Good Sport
In Young Guns We Trust
Team USA may be eliminated from World Cup of Hockey, and forced to play today against the Czech Republic in a losers match, but that doesn't mean us 'Mericans don't have any hope left. Team North America (comprised of Americans and Canadians under 23 years old) is sitting in second place in Group B after showing off some fancy stick work while beating Sweden in OT yesterday.

Bad Sport
Only In America!
Remember when people used to like Don King? Us neither. The boxing promoter who's been convicted of non-negligent manslaughter and sued numerous times for defrauding boxers he represented, dropped the n-bomb while introducing Donald Trump at a church. Former NBA player Stephen Jackson's not a fan.
