Game Play: Offense :Regular Season & Franchise
If you pause game during game play for whatever reason other than letting your opponent know they are violating a rule,You MUST call a time out.If you do not have a time out then you must let the play clock run down to zero so you get a 5 yard penatly.If the clock is under 2 minutes in 2nd quarter or 4th you are to run out of bounds 5 yards on your next play.This will result in a loss of down and you will get a 5 yard loss on the play.

You may only flip your play 1 time during the down.At no point should you have your players running all over the screen before the ball is snapped.( this is a glitch and is considered cheatting ) If you do flip your play more than 1 time during the down you must call a time out.If you dont have any time outs then you must let the play clock run down to zero so you get a penalty.

You may only audible while at the line of scrimmage 2 times per down.You must let all your players come to a complete stop before audibling to another play.If you dont allow your players to come to a stop before audibling for the 2nd time you must call a time out.If you dont have a time out ,you must let the play clock run down to zero and take the 5 yard penalty.

You can only run time off the clock when under 2 minutes to go before half time.Or with 2 minutes to go in the game.Dont stall in between plays to try to let more time tick off the game clock.You should be at the line of scrimmage before you play clock reaches 15 sec in most cases.

You may run the no huddle offense when under 2 minutes left in 2nd quarter or 2 minutes left in game.You can not run the no huddle after
a incomplete pass or if you have ran out of bounds.No more than 3 hurry up in a row and  as long as you didnt go out of bounds or throw a incomplete pass

You can  take controll of your WR/TE/RB to manually catch a pass.However - once you take contoll of your WR/TE/RB  while ball is in the air you must stay on their  route.You may NOT swerve them,bump into the defender,or head towards the sidel line then back in to make the catch.If you do any of these things you must punt the ball to your opponent on the next play.

Should only be used inside the 10 yardline ( when about to score ) Or any place on the field where its 3rd or 4th and less then 2

You may go for it on 4th down when
Your across your opponents 40 yard line
If your down by 20 points or more half way threw the 3rd quarter
If your down at any point in the 4th quarter
If your inside your opponents 10 yard line ( even if you are in lead )

If the game is out of reach ( in the 4th) and you have your opponents number,DO NOT try to run up the score.Be respectful and take pride
in the fact that you are better than your opponent on this day.However- if you have a commanding lead and your opponent keeps passing
the ball   and you get a inetception by all means try to return it for a TD.If you can down the ball with under 2 minutes left in game to run
out the clock do so.

You can only go for 2 if you can cut the lead to 3,7,or 10.Or if you can take the lead by the same amount or make it so your opponent needs to score multi times to tie or win.

You may attempt a onside kick when behind in the 4th.
When down by 21 points or more half way threw the 3rd quarter

If you are  winning  by 28 points or more at any point in the game you may ask your opponent if they would like to stop.
If at any point your opponent tells you they have had enough you must grant them mercy
Any time your opponent asks to stop you will grant them mercy.
However- you may still play and finish out the game even with a lead of 28 points or more
*Mercy rule- NOT FOR FRANCHISE SEASON-However if you are winning by 28 DO NOT TRY to run up the score to PAD Stats

At NO point are you to take your QB and run him backwards (10-20 yards) after getting the snap of the ball.You may roll out of the pocket left or right as you see fit.Once your QB has rolled out you may not move him toward the line of scrimmage then backwards to confusse the A.I. If your QB has already made a move towards the line of scrimage you must then run with him.

No passing to your WR then have him pass to anyone else.Once your WR has caught a pass he must run with the ball.
No play calling with the WR pass play in it.If you do use this play you will have to punt the ball on your next down.
No direct snaps to your WR.This is a glitch in the game and you will get 1 warning.If you do use this play then on your next play you will have to punt ball.

You may call any fea flicker or halfback pass play you want as long as its not a WR throwing the ball

I cant tell you how to play your game so you may run and pass as many times as you see fit.However you must mix up your plays and do
not call the same 3 plays over and over again.You may run the same formation as many times as you want as long as your plays are mixed up and its not the same run play over and over from that formation.If you onlt have enough skills to run 3 plays then this league isnt ofr you

You are allowed to move 1 man other than your lineman before sanp of ball such as your CB/LB/FS/SS all other movements must be done by shifts.Once ball is hiked you may switch and use any player on your D

Can NOT come out of there stance at any point until ball has been hiked.You may move any Defensive lineman left or right as long as they stay in the 3 point stance
If you use shifts and you lineman stands up you must stay on him until ball has been hiked.Once ball has been hiked you may switch to any player on the field

When on Defense/Special Teams DO NOT toggle back and forth and cycle threw all your men before the ball is hiked.
*I think you know what im talking about

Only manually move your DE  1 click towards the sidelines.The rest must be done by shifts otherwise leave him where he lines up until ball has been hiked,Then feel free to move him where ever you see fit

You may not shift your Defense more than 2 times per down.This means do not  start calling audibles and abusing the shifts to confusse the A.I. of the game.You may move your 1 CB/LB/FS/SS to the spot you want them and you may move your lineman left or right
( still in their stance )
You can only audible on Defense 1 time and thats only if the Offense has audibled 1st.If you are in the wrong Defense then call a time out and regroup

You may not blitz evey play.However  if you see that your opponent is rolling out to 1 side all the time then by all means send the blitz to stop him.I mean mix up your plays on Defense and do not use the same play over and over again.
At no point in time should you use a NANO blitz.This is when you get to the QB before he can hand the ball off.This is a big rule violation and you will be removed from league if i see a pattern.
