As you’ve probably heard by now, EA Sports’ NCAA Football 2014 video game came out today and just about every gamer seems to be chomping at the bit to get their hands on a copy. Except not everyone thinks they should have to pay for it.
Yesterday, Missouri defensive lineman Lucas Vincent tweeted out his thoughts on purchasing the video game with his “likeness”.
I wanna buy the new NCAA game but I also don’t wanna be poor till September… My likeness is on the game why do I have to pay for it?

In the game, Vincent’s height, weight, number, class, position, skin tone and other traits appear.
EA Sports obviously makes money off of these football players, so it’s hard to disagree with Vincent — why not at least give the players a free game?
