RACINE — It’s all fun and games until the trash talk surrounding one game of “Madden NFL” leads to numerous 911 calls and two brothers in jail, charged with domestic abuse. Michael Mayweather, 21, and Abrey Mayweather, 19, were playing a game of “Madden NFL”… when Michael allegedly began to take the loss and his brother’s name calling personally… The two then reportedly jostled with one another, eventually ripping the door of its hinges and forcing the developing brawl into the hallway. According to the complaint, one witness told police the brothers as “really rolling,” and explained that Michael had his little brother secured in a headlock. Abrey allegedly told police that Michael was choking him and had punched him in the face… [P]olice describe finding the metal doorway bent and twisted away from the wall and numerous pieces of broken wood furniture throughout the apartment. Before the fight, Michael was reportedly spending at least four nights a week at Abrey’s apartment because it is much more convenient for him because it is closer to his probation officer and anger management class.
Is Michael’s probation officer shitting me? They let a guy who needs anger management play “Madden” with his brother? Why not just let an alcoholic rent a room in the back of a liquor store or let a pedophile live behind a playground? You’re just asking for trouble. The first term of release the judge should’ve ordered Michael to comply with is no video games with Abrey. And anyone who is a brother or is raising brother’s knows what I’m talking about. Nothing will make brother’s go all Cain & Abel on each other’s asses like video games. They’ve been responsible for more brother-on-brother bloodshed in America than the Civil War. Believe me, the Heirs to My Dominion get along great. Until the controllers come out. Then they they get whipped into a murderous rage. Those things just rewire the male brain and turn otherwise normal guys into the deranged, irrational, blood-thirsty psychopaths they play in the games. And I don’t care if they’re being Aaron Rodgers, Master Chief or Luigi. Those goddamn things make you into a killer. The Mayweather brothers should be grateful they’re both still alive.
It would’ve turned much more tragic if they were playing “Madden” against this guy, recorded off of XBox Live:
