Hello !!

I'm new around here, but i would love to cooperate in this great initiative !!

I'm an international relations student, so my field of expertise doesn't really match what your looking for, however, I believe that i have enough abilities to help in this great project. Also, i'm gonna have plenty of free time next months (summer vacations) !!

As for me, personally, i'm an European whose crazy about football, never played in my whole life, but i'm a "Madden Maniac" and i spend a lot of my free time reading about the NFL !

Thank you for your time !!

I will throw my hat in the ring as being a researcher for the game. I'd be game in helping make the game as realistic as possible!

I am interested with researching.

I have good experience with excel using it for numerous school projects and I love the stats side of sports.

I'm also willing to help... as crazy as I am about OOTP, I'm even more insane about football.

I have a ton of time on my hands and am willing to participate in any way possible. Thank you for offering this opportunity!

Sounds like a great initiative and a really good system to build the game data and harness the power of the BTS community.

Please count me in as a prospective volunteer!

Count me in! Like many others, I'm good with Excel/data entry (one gets the impression that it goes along with playing games like this), and I enjoy digging into the past.

I also want this game to do well so I'll do whatever I can.

I'm interested too. I'm already a researcher for a very popular soccer game, I'd love to have a chance to do this same kind of work for the sport that it's actually my favourite!

I would be interested in this as well. I am a life-long football fan and been a gamer since PONG came out in the 70's. Worked with computers for the last 20 years and am very at ease with data and spreadsheets.


I have played Head Coach for the last 5 years and still keep notebooks and spreadsheets on all of the players.


I have been playing OOTP for a little over a year and love the data immersion.


I am also a high school teacher so will have some free time over the summer.


My wife loves to tease me about this game, she says I am "going to play math". Even though I teach history, math was my minor.


I will say, I don't consider myself "young" as Markus asked for in one post but I am very capable.

If any of you potential beta testers are interested in blogging about football sim games, reviewing some games or getting copies for free, send an email over to chris@gmgames.org and I'll tell you more about our team.

Hi. I just saw your post requesting researchers. I don't know if you're still looking for recruits or not, but if so, I'd like to volunteer. This game has the potential to be the defacto standard in pro (and college) level football sims. I am a big fan of the game at the college level. I know that in the first few releases of BTS, the college level will be basically feeders for the pro level. However, I anxiously await the day when the college level is playable and provides developed players to the pro level thru the draft and free agency.

Thanks.

BTS researcher

Would love to help make this game a huge success. As many have mentioned we football fans have been waiting for this product a long, long time.

Head Coach published by EA many years ago was heading in the right direction but was abandoned. The BTS product has the potential to be a blockbuster and provide the depth and intellectual challenge we fans desire.

As a life long football fan, ex-player, current football gaming player and youth coach it would be very enjoyable to be part of this venture.

Sign me up for research and beta testing please.

Like everyone on this page, I am a huge football fan. Strategy based sports game, such as Football Manager and NFL Head Coach, for me, are far superior to the "stick" based games/simulations. I would love to see this game become great.

Currently in college pursuing a business degree (masters later) and looking forward to a career in sports management. Football is a passion of mine and I follow every aspect of it.

I would love to be a researcher, alpha and beta tester.

I would very much enjoy researching and collecting data to make this game a success. I am an absolute stats enthusiast, and love manager/simulation style games due to the absurd amount of information they give to me! I am off from school break so time would be plentiful.
