Some go.  And some come back.  And come back.  And come back.

Former long-time SIMBL GM and former Co-Commissioner Jamey Carter has rejoined the SIMBL after another needed hiatus but couldn't shake the SIMBL bug and takes over the charter Oregon Pioneers effective immediately. Several former SIMBL GMs have also returned to the league, some several times after needed breaks and hiatuses but the core remains in the SIMBL which has some of the most solid and long-time GMs online.

Carter, a Tacoma, Washington native, rejoins the league after a near six-season hiatus after he resigned due to time restraints after the 2033 season.  Jamey, who despite an absence stands second all-time in forum posts in the league with over 3,100 over the past 8 real-life years, was instrumental along with several others in helping with the monumental technical task of converting the SIMBL from 6.5 and ending the First File Era to OOTP 10 back in 2009 after the 2018 season and helping with San Diego GM Paul Ware and SIMBL Commissioner Christian DeMarco perform hours of test SIMs and settings adjustments to find the "perfect file" that was presented to and accepted by the league which then started the gargantuan task of the SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft and the New File Era which started with the draft and the 2019 season and remains in which the league plays in today.  Jamey, along with Paul, also ran SIMs which kept the SIMBL running like a smooth machine for seasons.

Jamey also preserved and still gratefully hosts the archived history of the SIMBL First File Era (2005-2018) of which its history and records are still kept combined with the SIMBL New File Era (2019-current) which is used frequently to update career and history lists for the league.

This is Carter's third tenure in the league, where he joined for the 2016 season finding the Ruston Roosters.  After three seasons in Ruston and with the 2019 New File Era Inaugural Season, Jamey then moved the Roosters to Rochester where they remain today under the steady leadership of GM Tony Christman.

After leading the Roosters from 2016-2026, Carter stepped down the first time due to needing a break and time restraints.  Carter rejoined the SIMBL by re-inheriting his Roosters from 2029-2033.  Jamey picked current Roosters star Logan Pickard, currently a Top 10-ranked SIMBL superstar, with the #1 overall pick of the 2030 SIMBL Draft prompting a rebuild that the Roosters are on a run today from.  Pickard was named before the draft in honor of the late real-life Logan Pickard, Jamey's teenage step-son, who perished tragically and unexpectedly a few years ago.

"It's a great time to re-join the SIMBL," said Carter.  A lot of long-time friends and competitors I have missed and I have a lot of personal time I put into the league as well that is always good to know that helped out where it stands today. I'm getting married in two weeks so after my honeymoon it will be added to another new start and I look forward to blasting the competition soon," Carter said in a statement released by the SIMBL League Office.

Carter wouldn't reveal yet if he intends to move the Pioneers who are an up and coming and one of the remaining eight charter SIMBL franchises.  The Pioneers currently have the top-ranked prospect farm system in the SIMBL and are 62-74 in last place in the UL West having only hit .500 once in the past 10 seasons last reaching the postseason and SIMBL Coveted Cup Championship Series in 2029 where they lost to Hawaii in a classic seven-game series.  Previously, Oregon also advanced to the SIMBL CS losing to Manhattan Beach in 2020 and winning their only SIMBL championship in 2011 when they swept Calgary in the first of only five swepts in SIMBL CS history.

Carter joined the SIMBL in 2008 for the 2016 season and has won eight SL East Division titles under his leadership and was voted by his SIMBL peers as the 2024 SIMBL GM Of The Year.

Christman has already threatened Carter not to use the Roosters logo in any of his comments prompting a fast reply from Carter back to Christman that he will "pass the team I founded for you by in two seasons." So, it begins yet again and the league can't wait for a future Pioneers-Roosters SIMBL CS.

SIMBL Commissioner Christian DeMarco said laughingly, "It's great to have Jamey back in the fold and for me have to take aspirin and Xanax again from him being in our league again.  In all seriousness, the SIMBL wouldn't still be breathing if it weren't for the efforts of Jamey along with others who got us through some very tough decisions and transitions with the frustrating ending of losing the file from the OOTP 6.5 to OOTP 10 jump that was far too big to save that file.  Luckily, we got to save the history due to Jamey's technical prowess,dedication and selflessness and that he is back with us where he belongs to have some fun with us all again."

As stated before, the SIMBL is currently resuming after a 55-day technical delay from a crashed laptop of the Commish.  The league will complete the current 2039 season and postseason and then vote on to convert to OOTP 17 or OOTP 18 for next season as the league customarily converts every other version that OOTP releases.
