This announcement may come as a surprise to some, but likely most of the GMs already have known for a while that there is a change in management as of this off-season.
I’ve been a part of this community for a long time. It’s crazy to think that it has been the better part of 8 years where I’ve been super active and have almost never missed a point task. Over those past 8 years I’ve changed a lot and life has taken over. First and foremost I have an incredible 4 year old daughter who has taken over my life. On top of that I just moved into a new house that’s been under construction for the past year and a half. And now in two weeks I’m starting a new position at work that will absolutely require my full attention.
I joined this site in between jobs with a lot of free time and not a lot going for myself. I can still remember the early days here vividly because at the time that’s all I really had to get excited about. These days I’m finding it harder to stay engaged and be on consistently. I’m not saying I’m leaving the site but I’ll definitely be taking a huge step back. I want to support this community as much as I can and I will continue to stay present. However, for those of you who care I figured I would provide an explanation.
With that being said, there will be a new General Manager of the New York Americans effective immediately. This is an internal hire who I’ve been discussing this succession plan for the better part of three seasons. He is a first-gen player who was drafted near the start of my time in New York. He’s impressed in the VHLM GM ranks and has been an amazing member of this site since coming on.
I’m excited to announce that the new GM of the New York Americans is @Spade18!
Thanks to everyone who has dealt with me during my time as GM, I had a lot of fun during this run. All the teammates I’ve had that stuck with me and believed in the plan, all I can say is thank you. Shoutouts to @Gooningitup @der meister @BOOM™ @Kesler @Kendrick @diamond_ace
