    It has been brought to my attention that there are multiple owners using this method to punt to their opponent. This is NOT ALLOWED under any circumstances. It is the "low, bouncing punt". It is a cheap punt that the AI will still try to pick up and a lot of times they will touch it but can not pick it up. This is very unrealistic and banned in league play!

    Fast forward to 3:23 for examples of the punt.



    If you don't want your opponent to catch it, punt it OOB.

    If it feels like cheese, and smells like cheese, then it probably is (y)

    It's all good man this could be directed towards me as we'll, don't take it personal....I lower my punt trajectory when the wind is in my face, I try to aim it out of bounds but it stayed in one time recently. I won't lower my trajectory as much to solve the issue..no biggie.

    Yeah that's a good plan. I never lower the trajectory just to be safe. I only will raise it if I need a short punt.

    Well my apologies go out to the league...I am not an unfair player and was really only trying to keep the ball out of the returners hands...I am terrible at aiming my punts and making them go where I am aiming so I kick it low to ensure I get what I am looking for...wont happen again

    Nope not taking it personal I just knew I was one of the guilty party and I wish the guy I played would have said something to me DURING the game

    LOL I said something to you after the game I am not the one to pause the game and complain just not my style if I lose I lose but most of the time when you do this the other person wants to start a big argument over a game and I just do not have the time to do that.

    Also when I looked in the rules it was not listed as a rule so how can I tell you you are breaking the rules when there was not one?? So to get clarification I messaged the commish it was not a complaint against you it was a question of is this type of thing allowed in the league.

    So nobody was calling you out b/c I am sure others have seen this in the league. I just wanted to know if this punt was cool to do here in the league.

    And I never said anything was wrong when we played never did I say you tried to cheat me or anything like that. Win or Lose I would of said the same thing GG but I still wanted clarification of the rule from the commish before I called you out on it. So after the game all I asked was were you trying to do that punt on purpose?? That is something you cannot fault me of.

    Not real worried about any of this...I don't argue about video games either, more important things to do with my time...not worried about any one "calling" me out I am a big boy...my point is I dont cheat or glitch a video game and if you would have simply said something along the lines of being unsure about the punt I would have stopped or tried something else...I dont take video games personal, that would be sad

    As someone who's involved in these discussions, this wasn't posted to call out 1 person, but rather make several aware that this isn't cool. Technically, it wasn't in the rules, but as stated above, if it smells or feels off, it probably is. However, if we had an issue that called into play your overall simness, you'd know about it in private by now.

    I guess that Rodney Harrison jersey in the background gives him all the credentials on how to cheat the "right" way. Whenever I experienced a punt like that I just that ball roll.
