    SIM or NOT SIM?

    Just wondering about this situation before my first user game (don't want to be called anything derogatory already, I'll save that for later in the season). On punt returns, sometimes I like to take a down lineman (usually a LB) and pull him off the line of scrimmage to help block the outside gunners. This seems to help me greatly but I don't want to ruffle any feathers. Hopefully you guys can give me a solid yes, this is legal or no, that is straight cheese. I do however think the punt block return should be outlawed, it's a easy 15-20 yds everytime.

    I think puntblock is definately unsim unless youre opponent is inside their own 20.

    As for your question. I dont think its unsim at all. Not your fault that punt blocking is horribly screwed up.

    Some leagues view it as cheese, placing it as moving a guy out of position.

    Moving an extra guy back on punt returns to block is lame as it gets imo.

    Responding to a question for fellow league members when you're not a member is as lame as it gets. Imo

    Moving down linemen from their native position is not sim play.

    Good point. I didnt think of it that way. They really, really need to fix punt return blocking!

    I have no problem, I have not broken one yet, but i have had some 30-40yd returns using middle block, it seems much more effective against the gunners.
