OK, folks...time for a little dose of reality here...Hispanics are the fastest growing population in this country. No matter where you stand on the immagration debate, which I am not gonna get into here, they are also the fastest growing consumer group as well. So you think the NFL ain't gonna take advantage of catering to this market if it helps the bottom line??? Please...

Um, maybe because EA wants to sell their products to people who speak Spanish, is what I'm thinking.

Pretty good strategy, if that's your goal. The language might be Spanish, but the money is still green. Well, mostly green.

You are exactly correct... No need to panic....the truth is that this country will never be a spanish speaking country and the hispanic population will assimilate into a "common culture".
In our lifetimes we will "maybe" see some cultural and language additions to our country....just as we have in the last 250 years.

...Is it irritating?....yea.
...Is it positive...probably.
...Is it inevitable...definately.
