    I was going to put this in Games and Anime, but it seemed a better fit for General Discussion.

    O.J. Simpson has been ordered to pay any money he receives from All Pro Football 2K8.

    Source link.

    I think its poor taste that they put Simpson on a team called the "Assassins" with a knife wielding mascot.
    I have a pretty good sense of humor, but not when it comes to people being murdered.

    I think he should pay time in jail for KILLING HIS WIFE but that's just me.

    Me thinks there is a controversy on the horizon. Killing people = Bad. Why is he even featured in a video game.

    The game was published Take-Two, they apparently like to have controversy in everything.
    Seriously, the game features real players in a fictional league so why not just omit O.J. from it entirely? Instead, he 'coincidentally' ends up on a team called "Assassins". Whatever.

    That said he's probably already going to pounce on this.

    I still don't think I've really grasped just what a miscarriage of justice the whole thing was.

    People like him make me wish I believed we get what we have coming to us after death.

    It would be interesting to see if he does pounce on it.
    I'm not certain how he could spin it -but he puts a spin on everything.
    Despite the decision to use O.J. and the team name there is nothing bad in this particular game.
    They just play football.

    I think this is hilarious and awesome. he has to pay every cent he gets for a video game that makes fun of him and calls him a murderer.

    That's not an actual team in the game. You can create your own teams, which someone obviously did here.

    I think OJ deserves whatever that punish life and other people choose to throw his way, since our justice system failed to properly do so.

    I guess I didn't understand my source article.
    I knew you could customize the teams, but I thought his 'default' team was the Assassins.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    Yes, it is believed that Gametrailers.com, the site that the video in question is found on, is the company responsible for it's creation and "coinsidences'. That's just a 'minor' detail that media and news outlets seemed to overlook, as they ride the wave of uproar.

    Yep, and I am an expert on video games in my circle of friends and I bought right into it.
