II. Offensive Game Play Rules Fourth downs: See this picture. Left side is your territory, right is your opponent's territory. The down and distance must STATE you are far enough downfield. What is meant by this is if you are own your own 44 yard line and it's 4th and inches, you CAN NOT go for it. The down and distance must say "45 yard line, 4th and inches" and the same goes for each part of the field. Fake Kicks: THESE ARE BANNED. *Note that simply crossing the 45 doesn't mean it's now "Chuckie Cheese" land: if you are going for it every opportunity that you are tied that's NOT sim football. IMO if you're no past the 35 you should be punt almost EVERY time. You can still go for it anytime when trailing in the fourth quarter.. but still keep it sim.
