    Hey guys, we made some quick changes and clarifications to our 4th down rule to tighten things up a bit. Here are the new rules we will be rolling with this season:


    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 goal.
