How rude: EA Sports tweets Madden image showing missed Vikings FG


You aren't making any friends in Minnesota, EA Sports.

The video game maker is likely to draw the ire of Vikings fans after it tweeted a screenshot from Madden 16 that shows an all too familiar and unhappy image.

Yes, the screenshot shows the game's version of Blair Walsh setting up for his ill-fated last minute field goal against the Seahawks in Sunday's Wildcard game.

Needless to say the player controlling Walsh is aiming wide left, which is where his kick ended up (although, not THAT far left).

There's already been plenty of reaction to it among Twitter users – some finding it amusing, others decidedly less so.

Walsh by the way visited a school in Blaine today to thank first-grade students who sent him letters of support.
