    In an effort to get back to our "sim roots", we are going to be implementing a few rules that we hope will improve overall gameplay.

    1. Play action - You should not be running play action on 3rd down and >7 yards. Nobody expects the run in these situations so running PA here is does not make sense.

    2. Quick snaps - If you audible, give the defense time to adjust. For whatever reason, madden thinks offenses can audible in less than 1 second and every player would immediately be on the same page.

    3. Heat Seeker - The animation needs work. It seems to be an unfair advantage for players that are out of position. Each user will need to go into their settings in the CFM and turn it off. It is easy to see if you have it on so make sure to make this change ASAP.

    4. HB Screens inside the opponents 10 yard line. We got 4 requests to add this rule. So here it is....

    Rod, Tubb, Jerz and I will be voting on any future rules that we think will improve the league. If you have a rule that you think should be implemented, feel free to post it in here or send us a PM. In order for a rule to be implemented, 3 out of 4 need to vote "yes". There will be more to come.

    I hope everyone has a great holiday!

    Need to turn off ball hawk as well, if you turning off heat seeker. Just my two cents.

    Turning off Ball Hawk is a bad idea imo.

    I really dislike the idea of making tackling and playing pass coverage harder. I don't know why anyone has complaints other than things beyond out control.

    Just my 0.02$

    I agree with NT on that one. It is not as if lb/safety users get 10 picks a game. I think the ball hawk may in fact reward players for usering lb/safety and offsets the CPU warp that happens when usering dline instead. After all, even with the ball hawk on I still can not jump laterally 5 yards to knock down passes, which CPU does on every play.

    I agree with Kimura about the inside zone runs that go nowhere near the inside ;)

    Do you mean no HB screens, or no screens at all?
