    0% the point of an episode tie in is to advertise the episode so it has to be before the episode airs. I think we will getting something from the episode in the yard sale at the end of the season but no official episode tie in.

    The episode already aired. Not going to happen. Also, EA would have to be very careful not to use any copyrighted material. The rights that the tv show has for trademarked names, etc are not the same that EA has for this specific game.

    How would you even tie that in? Most would be uninterested although I realize many here are not in the US and like football (aka soccer) :wink:

    If FOX have the rights to the World Cup then it would be possible. As far as I know they do not. Anything World Cup related wouldn't go beyond mini event like the Superbowl tie in.

    I'd love some kind of tie in but it seems unlikely.

    Not really a fan of soccer, but it would be nice to have a playable soccer field where you could have the kids play a game on it and perhaps bet money on the game.

    I would say virtually none as the rights to football are granted to different people in different countries and it would just be a legal nightmare for not a very big pay day for EA.
    Its football americans, the clue is in the fact you play it with your feet. The game you call football is obviously actually hand egg.
