Giants' Marcus Thomas angry at Madden '13 creators for using 'impostor'

It's a case of mistaken identity, according to Marcus Thomas of the New York Giants.  The defensive tackle went on a Twitter rant Tuesday after finding out that the photo of him on the just-released Madden '13 video game is still not him.

"the creators of madden needs to b slapped for putting an impostor pic in place of me that's not me for the last time I don't look like that," Thomas angrily tweeted this afternoon.  "I been in the nfl going on 6years and y'all still have another man's face for my pic on madden i hate y'all hate is very strong but i do," he raged.



According to the video game website Kotaku, the player pictured is also Marcus Thomas — a running back who hasn't played in the NFL in three years.  That's what has the Giants' Thomas in a snit.

The defensive tackle Thomas just signed with the Giants this offseason after playing for the Denver Broncos for five seasons — one of the five teams the running back Thomas once played for between 2008-'09.



The Giants DT joked about the mixup and tweeted that he hopes the game's namesake can help clear up the photo snafu.

"Madden is disrespectful practice your craft and make it realistic I'm in newyork now help me please someone call madden and tell him lol," Thomas wrote.

Thomas later claimed he got a response and tweeted about it:

"mr madden has slapped and gave me a pacifier and told me to make the team before I start demanding requests lol"

    5. it's funny when people always bring up crackers. Are you eating soup? Cheese and Crackers? No? then please have enough respect to keep racial nonsense out of this. You don't see people randomly throwing about insults to black people like nigger? Please calm yourself. The guy has a right to be upset a 5 year vet in the NFL and his face isn't in the game. I'd be upset too REGARDLESS of race here.

    6. It's funny who black people think calling white people a "cracker" actually hurts our feelings. The slur "cracker" originated from the way the white slave masters used to crack the whip at the black slaves. The slur "nigger" meant ignorant and stupid. So I ask you which racial slur actually hurts their race more? "Cracker" proving that the white people are better and more intelligent that they needed to crack the whip at the ignorant "niggers" to get them to work.

  7. Racism will always be around because a majority of folks naturally ascribe to an "us" vs. "them" mentality.

    This mentality is further intensified by class difference. Until classes are erased, racism and hatred will continue. No one will truly understand what it's like to live in a "ghetto" unless you have lived in it. Conversely, you can't know what if feels like to shit in a yacht, if you've never been on a yacht.

    BUT, I believe in capitalism so must reject the notion of a classless system. As Americans, in an American economy, you must accept difference. It has little to do with color and more to do with class, but class is a hard truth. Acceptance, understanding, and compassion..........The sermon is done for today, boys and girls.
