    Not sure if this got posted somewhere yet, but here's an article that downplays Hillis' accomplishments from '10, yet overlooks that he wasn't even the starting RB for the first two games. The author is arguing that white people are voting Hillis in so they can glorify a white RB

    http://www.avclub.com/twincities/articles/is-race-going-to-decide-the-madden-12-cover-vote,54920/

    Notable paragraph blasting Caste Football, unwittingly bringing more traffic this way:

    In a Google search for "white football players,"Â￾ the first site that pops up is Caste Football. The website alleges a hierarchical system is at play in sports that marginalizes the contributions of whites. Its "About Us"Â￾ section reads: "It is clear and obvious that whites are just as good as if not better athletes than blacks"Â￾; the site's top story proudly reads, "The Whitest Team Wins the Super Bowl."Â￾ This site has nothing to do with Peyton Hillis. It's probably frequented by overt racists; the fans who voted Hillis in are not. But if this sentimentâ€"one that seeks "A Great White Hope"Â￾â€"is alive and vocal, it's fair to think threads of it might dwell in the subconscious of Madden voters.

    I've been voting for Hillis numerous times every day and I hope he wins over the dog killer today. I just hope the final isn't rigged to give the cover to vick...

    GO PEYTON!

    Unfortunately I can see it being rigged, but not in the worst way. I imagine they would put both Vick and Hillis on the same cover. Thats better than nothing. It is going to be hard to put Hillis as anything but halfback if he is on the cover. People are trying to say he is a one season wonder, but he did the same thing when pressed into action for Denver.

    Just voted about 15 times and will continue to vote in the next hour. The winner will be announced at 4pm EST on sportsnation. Also, Vick and Hillis are chatting live on the website now if anyone is interested.

    lets see them try to give him less than 250 carries next year. This makes it that much harder.

    Victory! Hillis won! I can't wait to see it in stores and on commercials. This is one of the greatest events for helping raise the popularity of white athletes!

    Did everyone notice how tiny Vick looked compared to Peyton? There is no way Vick is 6'0. Not even close. He looked like a teenager standing next to him. Hillis is listed at 6'1

    Just want to gloat for a little bit. Here's what I said going into the semi-final round!


    It's great feeling being optimistic and your optimism comes true! I can't even explain how happy I am right now. Who would have thought this two years ago? This can have some big effects on Hillis' career. He is being immortalized on the cover a video game. He will no longer go down as a "nobody," because it takes something special to get that kind of prestige. While I was late to the Peyton Hillis bandwagon in 08, once I saw what he did after getting a freak opportunity, I was confident that things would work out someway, somehow.

    I can't wait to see all the promo posters in the stores, and the commercials and finally to see that game in people's homes for years!

    HAHAHA here's all the bitter Vick fans from his facebook page!

    I want the names of everyone that didn't vote so I can stomp your @ss lol. Damn!!!!

    Lex Nekst ‎@ Josh Macon- im still rockin my 7 jersey- but EA messed up if they think they gettin $70 from me!

    Karen Dontworryaboutit ‎66-34??????? GTFOH!!!!!!!!!!!! HATERS!

    Nick Rosato like this if u think vick shouldve won

    Lex Nekst I WANT A RECOUNT- AND I GUESS OHIO IS THE NEW FLORIDA

    Diego Tovar I don't even kno who Payton Hills IS!!!

    Lex Nekst It was because he was white- thats not race card its truth- if it was off skill then Vick wins- best back Arian Foster- best Brown? JOSH CRIBBS!

    Collier Martin who was voting 4 this hillis dude anyway

    Laura Estes IM NOT BUYING THIS GAME. That mess is unfair and wrong. and i will not waste my money on some greedy azz people who themselves know VICK DESERVED THAT COVER. no wonder i couldnt find who won online. even they know its wrong. if vick won, it woulda been posted everywhere. VICK you still the man in my books.

    Julie Ann Hunsberger-Barbagallo Who is standing next to him???

    Kelvin Valdivieso payton hillis

    Miguel Bebe Miranda that is bullshyt I voted like 50xs today alone. I bet they didnt even count the votes. Who the hell is this payton hillis anyway

    Lex Nekst ‎@Laura Estes u right- the reason its not posted anywhere is bc Im sure they sent the news to all the outlets then gotta 1000 emails back saying "WHO THE F*CK IS THAT? I THINK YOU SPELLED PEYTON MANNING WRONG"

    Oscar Blanco Nuñez peyton hillis got the cover????????????????' FOUL

    Tonya Wright Armour Who the crap is Peyton Hillis!!? Not buying Madden12! Better keep playing m11 til M13 come out

    Charlene Bowman I have never hard of a "PAYTON HILLS". Anyway, Vick, you are still my #1 and once all the MADDEN players get tired of play 2012, the cover will be thrown in the corner with PAYTON HILL on it. Let's get ready for the upcoming season and bring home a ring.

    Kendall Gertrude Geertsen That is retarded! Hillis doesnt even deserve it! What place did he finish in the MVP race???

    Laura Estes SMDH! this dont make no sense. all this support, all these votes and the man didnt get it? now im not the smartest card in the deck but something dont seem right if you ask me....

    Terica Gilliam They cheated you!!!!!!!!! Your my cover for the game though.

    Kendall Gertrude Geertsen I bet all those idiot Dog-lovers (who have nothing to do with football) Either they voted for him a crapload or EA rigged this whole thing. There is about an hour of my life, wasted.




    HAHAHA cry me a river Vick fans!!!

    Blacks will do anything to try to "feed their (collective) ego".. but if Whites support a great White athlete, all we hear is "great White hope" talk? And, it's implied that Whites are insecure? And, also implied, is that black equals "ebony titan?"

    Ridiculous.

    I think winning this popularity contest against some of the biggest names in the NFL shows that there are not as many DWFs out there as we may have thought. I never thought we would see a day like today. The tide is definitely turning in our favor. Does this mean that Hillis is one of the top 5, if not THE, favorite player in football?

    I read it on rotoworld and couldn't believe it!!! 66:34 is great! Seems like Browns fans and overall white guys are not as brain washed as we thought. That's refreshing. HELL YEAH! Whatever makes it harder for Browns to reduce Peyton's role next season is huge!

    This is such great news. Way to go football fans both here and all across the US. I know alot of fans from Ohio voted but Hillis is very popular everywhere. Wake up NFL. Draft and play some white running backs and you will make even more money. White fans want to see white football players run and catch the ball. We get sick of only seeing white men have to block for the whole career while other players get all the glory.

    Peyton Hillis for President!

    I gotta say, when I first saw this thread I had very little hope that Hillis would even get a chance. Now that he has won I have to believe if it wasn't for those here he would not have won. Thanks you guys!!!

    I voted 60 times. This is payback for Welker not going to the pro bowl two years ago.
