You would think that having everyone acknowledge that they have read and understand the rules would be enough. However, I am still getting complaints of multiple players not following the rules and not playing within the sim guidelines. Here is a list of things most commonly complained about: Running the same routes over and over (I don't care what your justification is, you MUST mix up your play calling and routes or you can leave). Relying on the same few plays over and over (This is called exploiting money plays and is NOT allowed. Go into practice mode and learn to diversify your playcalling or leave) Manually moving players on special teams (This is clearly stated in the Rules/Guidelines as not being allowed. You will follow these Rules/Guidelines or you will leave.) Moving more than one player on defense (This is generally used to set up nano blitzes and is NOT allowed. Again, this is addressed in the Rules/Guidelines. You will adhere to this or you will leave.) Manually dropping players into coverage (While not specifically stated in the rules, this is generally frowned upon in sim leagues. You MAY hot route a defensive lineman to drop into coverage, however, you MAY NOT manually drop one into coverage. If you control a defensive lineman, you MUST be rushing the passer. You NEVER see DEs or DTs drop into coverage and roam the field in real life like users do with them in this game so this IS NOT allowed. If you cannot comply then you can leave.) Not using inside runs and exclusively trying to run the ball outside (This is specifically addressed in the rules and numerous other threads on here. It is much easier to run outside than to run inside on this game. TOUGH. Its part of football and it can be done. At least half of your runs MUST come between the tackles or you will leave.) Calling inside runs and running outside (This has been addressed in numerous threads on here and I've encouraged everyone to read the thread at HK outlining why this is not sim. You will follow this rule or you will leave.) Running no huddle outside of the guidelines specified in the Rules/Guidelines (I know teams do this in real life but the game just does not allow the defense the necessary adjustments that you can make in real life. This rule is clearly defined in the Rule/Guidelines and EVERYONE will follow it or they will leave.) Using bump coverage the entire game (I don't care what you think you saw in an NFL game, this is not sim and IS NOT allowed. If you cannot win without doing this or anything else over and over again, you are not very good and do not belong in leagues on here. If you cannot follow this guideline you will leave.) Blitzing excessively (This is tricky as different teams use different amounts of blitzes. However, former Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson was said to blitz as much as 60% of the time (the most in the league). A blitz consists of rushing five or more players. In an effort to remain sim and mix up your plays, I would say that blitzing more than 60% is unacceptable. Again, if you have to rely on any strategy over and over to win, you need to practice more. If you cannot do this, you will leave.) I think you get the picture. You will abide by the Rules/Guidelines of this league (and TSO in general) or you will be removed. End of story. I do not know why some of you failed to actually read the rules or why you think that they do not apply to you. However, they DO apply to EVERYONE and you have all acknowledged that you have read and understand them and you will ALL follow them. This will be your LAST warning to do so. I shouldn't have to make posts like this and others shouldn't have to play against people who won't follow the rules. For the most part, I think 90% of the league is doing well. Outside of a few minor issues, I haven't had any problems personally. However, there have been a few complaints of players doing the things mentioned above. So, this is the FINAL WARNING to those players. Consider this strike two. It is up to you to make sure you understand the Rules/Guidelines.
