    As part of Court Justice: The Inside Story of My Battle Against the NCAA by Ed O'Bannon and Michael McCann, O'Bannon fires back at what he calls a ridiculous claim: that he is to blame for the end of college sports video games and namely the NCAA Football franchise.

    "But the video game comment was the one that I got the most. To be honest, it kind of caught me off guard since it was so wrong and so ridiculous. Yes, itís true that Electronic Arts stopped publishing college sports games after we led my lawsuit, but letís think about the facts for a moment. ...

    "If the NCAA had let EA pay us, all of you gamers out there would have your college sports games. So donít blame me. Blame the NCAA for refusing to change its rules in the face of basic common sense, not to mention consumer demand."


    It is worth nothing that under terms of the settlement, EA did not admit any wrongdoing. However, O'Bannon claims in this excerpt that EA "knew that it had used playersí images and likenesses without their permission."
