EA SPORTS and the NFL will create a week-long series of matchups featuring celebrities, NFL Legends, current players, and streamers playing as the official Pro Bowl rosters in Madden NFL 21. These matchups will culminate in an action-packed virtual Pro Bowl game played with 2021 Pro Bowl players facing off within Madden NFL 21.”

The inclusion of streamers and celebs kinda ruins this for me but otherwise I think the could be really fun, at least when they get to the end of the matches.

Same. Might have been interested otherwise.

At least the game isn't being played anymore, which I've advocated for quite some time now. Sad that it took a global pandemic to make it vanish.

Wait... so the NFL actually thinks people are going to tune in to watch someone play video games?  Either I'm old, or that's dumb.  Or both.  I watched my kids play video games when they were young, and I know there's a segment of kids who watch videos of others playin.  But televised?

You're old unfortunately. People will tune in. This might not have the following the 2K series has, or other video game streams, but there is a Madden following for video game streams.

Madden Streams are so small as to be insignificant. As of this post, albeit at 7:30 AM central, it has 464 viewers. That's lower than games like EuroTruck Simulator 2, Farming Simulator 19, Cricket 2019, Majora's Mask, and Diablo 2. It's like 50 viewers higher than Call of Duty Mobile. Those numbers, even at it's peak, are not really high enough to justify time on the NFL network. The vast majority of people who will watch even a portion of this are people who have never watched a Madden stream before.

Pretty much this. I’ve actually been to the pro bowl game before and it was fun. Got to see the players, participate with the festivities, and get autographs. But that was probably the last time I was watch the game in any capacity in about 10 years.
