EA's Madden NFL 21 is now available, and while most reviews seem to be positive, some are not happy with the finished product. In 2005, the NFL inked an exclusive contract with EA to produce games using the license, which meant that franchises like NFL 2K and NFL Blitz fell by the wayside. However, this year that agreement will come to an end, and fans are requesting that the NFL not re-up the contract, as they believe increased competition will lead to a better product. As a result, "NFL Drop EA" is trending on Twitter, and fans are sharing their dissatisfaction with the franchise.

There's clearly a lot of frustration.
Some feel the game just hasn't changed enough over the years.
For many, this is not a new issue.
#NFLdropEA the madden games are terrible and have been terrible for years— Mike Johnson (@kaijumik3) August 30, 2020
These are valid complaints!
Bugs, a lack of vision for franchise changes, and an overall product that is both visually and mechanically laughable. #NFLdropEA— T.C. (@tct5001) August 30, 2020
NFL 2K had a lot of fans, back in the day...
