    4th Downs- You are allowed to "go for it" on 4th downs in the following situations:
    A) Anytime when trailing in the 4th quarter
    B) Anytime when losing by 21 or more points
    C) Anytime inside your opponent's 5-yard line
    D) 4th and 1 or inches in your opponent's territory
    E) 4th and 3 or less when you have the ball between midfield and your opponents 40 yard line
    F) When you have the ball between your opponents 35 and 39 yard line - REGARDLESS of down & distance

    In all other 4th down situations, you must either punt or kick a field goa

    This has been passed and rolled out to the league. Who is responsible to update our rule book? We should make sure this and all other rules are current before the season starts as well so we don't have the same issue we did last season. If I recall, there was a rule change that was made in the forum, but never incorporated into the official rule book which created an issue.
