    *New Rule* - late pitches

    Often times, late pitches can determine the outcome of a game...even if they don't go for big plays..it is very frustrating to deal with, and can change the defenses strategy.

    We've had a few instances with the pitches, and Im tired of everyone getting all fired up about it.

    If there is ever an issue with a user save the video and send me the link!

    *NEW RULE* - If you get off a late pitch that is unrealistic, you are to run the ball out of bounds AT or BEHIND the line of scrimmage upon receiving the pitch.

    No one in this dynasty is trying to abuse the AI - I know that.

    Here are some pitches that I video taped...they don't cover all the issues, but I can point out a few things from them...try to ignore the crap written in the middle of the video.

    Pitch #1: good
    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/cKybyiQzvtE&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/cKybyiQzvtE&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    - This is perfectly fine, the QB does not need to take a big hit for the option to be successful.

    -----------------------------------
    Pitch #2: absolutely rediculous
    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/gs3FJQKyfVI&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/gs3FJQKyfVI&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    - This should never happen, the QB should just take the yards. If you have a question as to why this isn't acceptable then you have some issues. This should be ran out of bounds for a loss by the running back (new rule).

    -----------------------------------
    Pitch #3: borderline
    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/i-qO9U7rpbA&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/i-qO9U7rpbA&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    - This is one to not get too worked up about, but can be frustrating if it happens multiple times in a game. The fact is, sometimes when you press the pitch button BEFORE the initial tackler...the QB still won't pitch it until AS he is getting hit. Although, the ball should be pitched where the video is paused the end since there is no one outside on the pitch man anyways.

    -----------------------------
    Pitch #4: not okay
    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/l9R_NfA5NRc&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/l9R_NfA5NRc&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    - This is completely unacceptable. The only way this can happen is if you press the L trigger for about a second after you are wrapped up. This is a major flaw in the game because everyone collapses on the initial ball carrier because he shouldn't be able to pitch at that point.

    ------------------------------

    I haven't got a chance to look at the videos jman sent me because easportsworld is messed up. I did look at the ones from NatiSaint vs Max and I agree that they were pretty skepticle. I'll post them later and discuss why..

    There aren't going to be any punishment or anything right now, but this is why I tried to bring up that thing early on about discussing cheese with everyone as a whole...that way we could talk about this sort of thing.



    Are there any questions about the rule? If you have a rediculous pitch. run the ball for a loss or no gain after you receive the pitch. Now, that doesn't mean pitch it whenever, and if it is super crazy run it out of bounds and everything is all good. No...try to avoid stupid pitches, but if it happens then refer to the new rule.

    Are we all cool with this? I think we know what is cheap and what isn't.

    Once I can look at the videos from Jman..I will talk with you troy..

    Other than that, lets drop the drama please.

    Ok..I think the borderline is cool though. I for one have a hard time getting the pitch off when the defender is that close anyway and have been pissed when all I need to do is make that pitch and can't, so I never cut it that close anyway.


    Edit

    What about this play. I called this play "The Road Block" thought I was going to get caught from behind until....

    Works for me. The only game I had an issue with late pitches was in season 1 against Murk, and I blame the user game lag on that. I stopped running the option the second time it happened.

    WELL..if so..

    I'd say it had more of an impact the 2nd game then the 1st if it was the lag that got me..

    considering I blew your pitiful dogs out of the water in season 1
