Smile BTS Development Update - January 2016

Hey folks,

we have finally found a new lead developer for BTS who will start to work on the project in February. His name is Michael Winter, he is a big NFL fan and has a nice background in sports game design & development. I'll introduce him officially next week.

Meanwhile, Francis is still in the process of recovering from his health issue. He is making good progress and we hope he will be able to re-join the development team in some capacity in the future.

So, BTS is alive. We will keep you updated with the progress in a regular manner!

Well said!

So much for personality. Albert Belle, a complete nut job was never traded and was the highest paid player in the game, twice!

I wanted to ask this question, but decided not to. I'm glad someone else asked.
