Quoted from PinballHog:
Why do you guys always look for a negative in everything you post. I know everything has not been smooth with JJP, but what in any kind of business is. Jack said Joe's part is done. Some of you guys live to see something fail. Why not enjoy more pinball. If you don't want to buy from JJP that's fine, but stop thinking that every bit of news that comes out of JJP is the end. I want to see everything with pinball succeed. Guys we don't have a lot of options. Let's hope we get some more it will only help the hobby.
Wasn't it just a couple days ago where we saw the photo of a Hobbit playfield with full color art?
Doesn't that mean layout and design are basically established/committed, ie design/Joe Balcer's part is done?
Isn't it already known Lawlor is designing number three and an unnamed designer is doing #4 as I write?
Isn't Joe going to another job within the industry and not dropped to unemployment?
I'm not feeling chicken-little on this at all. Seems pretty explainable.
