    We've decided that we need to amend the 4th down rule. Right now, there is too much leeway (we feel) and is not truly "sim". So we'd like you guys to help us figure out where to go with it.

    Here are the 3 options we've narrowed it down to:

    Option A: No going for it on 4th down in 1st half. Only go for it on 4th and 1 from 1-yard line in second half unless trailing in 4th quarter when you can go for it at any time.

    Option B: You can go for it if you are past the 50-yard line and have 1 yard or less to go. You can go for it in the 3rd quarter when down by two touchdowns as any time. You can go for it any time in the 4th quarter when trailing.

    Option C: You can go for it if you are past the 50-yard line and have 2 yards or less to go or at any time in the 4th quarter when trailing.

    So just to clarify, you can't go for it if you're not losing? What if it is tied?

    What about 4th and goals on the 1 yard line?

    I like the option of being able to go for it on 4th and two or less inside opponents territory. For instance, if I'm at the 32-38 yard line, it's too far for my kicker to make a field goal...but punting seems useless..since It'll probably end up being a touchback anyways.

    The vote lasted 48 hours and the default TSO rule (Option B) won. This change will take effect at advance to Week 8. You can still follow the exiting rule as defined in the VFL Rules for the remainder of Week 7.
