You haven't supplied any information about the business. I might be able to come up with a group to take over BBM but I have no idea what is involved with the business side of it. I have no idea about the revenues or expenses. If its not viable from an income/expense metrics, its difficult going any further.

My question also is why should I invest in BBM by playing in 2020 when we are being dumped without a solution right after 2020? Certainly it changes the character of the two Keeper Leagues I am in.

Revenue share????  Now that's chutzpah.  No wonder no one would touch it in the past.

I don't want to act like I'm speaking for the BBM owners but perhaps when they mentioned revenue sharing they were just thinking of that as a possibility in lieu of upfront cash.   In other words I took it as an indication that they might be willing to go out of their way to allow somebody to keep it going which would be commendable.

I agree. It would offer them the best chance to maximize their profit potential. Certainly better than just shutting down the game and walking away with nothing...

They don't seem to be able to get cash up front. That's why they are contemplating walking away. Do you think they would walk away if they could get something?

I don't have much money to put in it, but will be agreeable to managing with Art as my VP.  🙂  What if we have our own Go Fund Me, and allow anyone who donates more than $50, they get a free season.  Just thinking out loud, obviously.  Call it brain-storming, but we HAVE to put this together to continue, assuming Alain isn't losing a fortune each year.  If it's only break-even, and with a good business plan, I can possibly raise capital to buy it, but investers don't seem to want to invest in a losing venture, without one hell of a sales plan.

Explain Falcom, you apparently know more than I do.  So what does it take to get money up front for them?  Heck in the Keeper Leagues, we had to pay two months up front in the beginning.  At $49. it should be easy to get everyone  to pay for two seasons....money upfront for Alain?

Also, something you wrote that made me wonder .....if they are willing to walk away with "nothing", that would make it appear they don't have enough managers to even break-even.  🙁  Guess Alain needs to open up his books for any of us who will know if there is an answer...or not.  🙁
