Each July fans of the old EA Sports "NCAA Football" video game – and they are plentiful – commiserate over the fact that the game is no longer being produced. EA Sports discontinued the game after the 2014 edition – released in July 2013 – because the company says it found itself “stuck in the middle of a dispute between the NCAA and student athletes who seek compensation for playing college football.” Namely, lawsuits arguing that the players whose likenesses were being used in video games, among other commercial products, deserved a cut of the licensing money that EA Sports and other companies were paying colleges and universities.
