Here's your chance. Any questions you have?
Also, any specific criticisms that you have. I'd like to re-ask the same question that I did to Markus, so if you have any suggestion for this, have at it:
"Q: Here are four common criticisms that I've heard of you and of the BM series."

Mogul has been around for a long time and is the reason a lot of players got into text-simming in the first place. What makes you continue working on the game after all of these years? What motivates you?

Here's a question posted over on the BM forums...
My question to Clay is: "Would he consider the ability for us GMs to warm up pitchers?
It would be a boost to those Members who are growing bored with forever winning, and who would welcome this challenge to their managerial ability.
Besides which, of course, it would add realism to the game."

What are your plans and direction you plan on taking with your revolutionary Baseball Mogul Online game? Having spent a ton of money, averaging around $400 a year on this service, what should players of this game expect in the next year.
If you guys don't know about baseball mogul online. It beta tested in Early 2001, and has basically had the same interface since then. But there is a upgrade just waiting to be implemented including splits, and other features.
My first post here :)

I hope some of you have some questions for Clay...
Anyways, Hopefully this thread might get some questions :)
Back in 2005, Ben/SkyDog posted a poll (http://www.sportsmogul.com/vbulletin2/showthread.php?t=72506) where people voted on their most wanted features for the "next" version of Mogul. Of the 40 listed, about 8 seem to have been implemented (by my count) and none of the top 12 has made it yet.
What chance do some of those most requested get to see the light of day?
Will there ever be a change to player salaries so that contract extensions don't take effect immediately? For example, a player earning $1M in 2008 signs an extension in May for $5M for 3 years. Their current contract immediately becomes $5M for the remainder of 2008 as well as the next 3 years.
