Barry Bonds

SDS

Any theories as to why Bonds doesn’t want to be in any baseball games? I know he wasn’t part of the licensing agreement back in his playing days but what would be the negative of being in the most popular baseball game out now? Any thoughts?

SDS

Because he doesn't want to. He doesn't really need a better reason.

Well thanks for killing the fun

Bonds has never wanted to be in the MLBPA and I dont know of too many games that has ever had his proper name in it. My guess now is that he doesnt want to associate with mlb over the not getting into the hall of fame.

Just a guess though. Bonds has always been a bit of a [censored] so I'm sure that might be part of it too. Doubt he needs the money either

He's right. Barry Bonds holds the rights to his own name, and until he wants to sell them or license SDS for usage, he won't be in the game.

I mean, nobody knows his own reasoning. It's like asking me if I wanted to be the poster child for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Yes, I'm a childhood cancer survivor, but that doesn't mean that I want my face plastered and marketed everywhere. But Bonds was never a big fan of the media, so I'm sure that plays a pretty big part of it.

I get that. The post was for possible theories on why he wouldn’t want to be in the game

SDS

Because he rejected the notion that his likeness is someone else's to lease when he was a player. He's probably more likely to license his name and likeness now that he's retired and doesn't seem to have so much anger and resentment driving him.

Someone should ask him nicely if he would let SDS use his likeness. If it’s a monetary issue, I would be willing to donate 50,000 stubs to get him onboard.

Random, but All Star Baseball 2002,
which I believe Jeter on the cover, was the last game he was in lol

SDS

He should just be elected into the baseball Hall of Fame, where he deserves to be anyway. That way, his name and appearance can be used for a limited amount of time.

Technically he was in MLB The Show 16 under the name Reggie Stocker.

Roids users will never get in, it's just the way it works. I don't agree with it, but here we are.

SDS

Most likely...$$$$$ c'mon it's usually the reason behind everything in this world unfortunately... not always but usually... That or SDS avoids him because of roid scandal lol my two best guesses.

SDS

Pudge, Piazza, Bagwell, etc.

SDS

Because he’s an egomaniac

SDS

He probably thinks he can get more money and more input with his player...who knows what the contract entails too. Same thing with Bill Belichick on Madden.
