This is a significant factor from Smarthuiyuan's blog

EA doesn't care about people who aren't investors. Eliminating Kaepernick's name from tunes in Madden 2 years in a row reveals it. Businesses don't want one to Mut 21 coins defend them, let their lawyers do this work. EDIT: Let me be clear. I am all for calling a spade a spade and being happy after I am surprised by something like this. But we should not praise a company for attaining the absolute bare minimum. You aren't cool and moral for thanking corporations for not spitting on you. We ought to praise companies who show patterns of positivity. Feel free to disagree, but don't act like this specific case is this incredibly complex morally-grey circumstance. I mean I believed there were pretty strict regulations on whose names and likeliness can be used in Madden. Like Belicheck and Payton aren't in Madden because they aren't part of the NFLCA and that is who EA has a contract with. They may have to cover Kap if his title is used and are probably avoiding that. That and Kap isn't just welcome from the NFL planet (not speaking about fans) anymore.

They both backpeddled and apologized when they have been called out. They don't have rights to Kap's likeness from the game but they could mention him in the tune (just as they have plenty of other public characters in different songs). The simple fact that they did this two years in a row suggests it was not an innocent oversight however a real decision to collaborate with a essentially racist act of collusion inside the NFL. I'm not defending a company. I'm not saying EA is a bastion of social justice. Most people in general (not merely reddit) can not see past black and white. That's why negativity floats to the top in all social websites. Cynicism inspires outrage and outrage inspires more clicks. This is a significant factor. Youtube for one has completed research, because it's a huge part of their company and they would like to understand it. There's been testimony to cheap mut coins madden 21 congress about it I've watched but can't find right now. What they want is engagement and the more negatively framed something is that the more folks will click it when it comes up on your own recommendations.
