    Rule Discussion: 1-5-5 formation

    Ok, I am now for completely outlawing this formation. It just gets abused in about 90% of the situations its used in. I know we have been close to doing this before, and I'm not going to hold anybody responsible for playing within the rules.

    However, I am tired of seeing 1-5-5 against me when its 2nd and 7 or 3rd and 5. Its unrealistic.

    Let's please get rid of this cheese from our league once and for all...

    True I agree, but lets hold off til 2011. I dont think guys will be able to abuse it so easily in 2011, but we better wait til we play the game to make sure.

    again, i feel the game will be unchanged. I dont get what they can 'change' to make a 'formation' not able to be 'abused'.

    I've never had it or used it, so I am fine with canning it.

    This IMO should be banned altogether, atleast any player calling this when it's not under 2:00 in the 4th Quarter while only being up by 1 score should be just kicked out of the league.

    Are we good with banning this then? If for some reason Madden 11 has fixed this we can 'unban it'....but honest I'd like to get this rule in place ASAP even for this season.

    LOCOMOTION. LOCOMOTION. LOCOMOTION and improved blocking.



    The 1-5-5 is successful because there is no difference between having a down lineman and a standing one. With locomotion lineman standing get blown off the ball BAD, and with improved blocking we won't see such effective blitzing. Down lineman wont be able to cover the pass as well as 2010. If you guys want to do it fine, but I think it should be limited to prevent only (3rd and 20 or hail mary situation.)

    Management has been studying all the changes in the game and discussing rules.

    Alright how about banning it for the remaining of this version and then we re-evaluate for next version?

    Alright Nate, I'll post the two 1-5-5 and RB to FB thing in the main forum if you could add it to the rulebook. I will make sure to put in my post we will potentially revisit these rules for Madden 11.
