    Hey Everyone,

    I have had a ton of people messaging me individually asking what happened and why I stepped down as Owner, especially since I have been in Management since Season 2 without any issues at all.

    My family and I found out that my mom's health has taken a worse turn than we expected and she needs my wife and I around to help her out a lot more than she has previously. Her kidneys are 95% failed and she needs to be put on dialysis 5 days a week at home in hopes that she will eventually be able to get a transplant, unfortunately with her being a smoker her chances are greatly decreased for getting one. This all on top of us working and raising our 4 month old daughter.

    If I could've made this work, I absolutely would've done everything I could to make this season run smoothly and get everyone to have a great time but I do not believe I would be available enough to dedicate myself to this 100% and could be out of communication for extended periods of time which is not what any team in this league deserves. If I were just a player, it may have been easier since all you have to do is show up for 3 games a week...but as management we all know that is not what is expected from us at that level.

    I understand that with this comes both a multi-season ban as well as being put on the no-management-list for a certain amount of time and that is fine because I truthfully do not believe I would be able to do management again with all that is going on.

    Thank you for all the good times and all the friends that I have made while playing in this league, it will forever be appreciated. I will still be online at random times, so feel free to shoot me an invite whenever. To all of you who have reached out in some way shape or form about this, thank you for all your kind words and wishes for my family. Hope to be back soon.
