There was an ironman league back around S30 or so ... and the penalties for DL <-> OL, or say covLB <-> rTE, even WR <-> CB were pretty damn brutal. Whichever side you picked, they were either useless on O, or completely lost on D. Bort said it was an even % applied, but it definitely felt like it hit vision harder - due to the stupidity of the dots, playing the other direction.

bFB <-> bTE is something I do often though, that one definitely feels like a very tiny % hit.

Might have to do with how you set the Depth Chart for ST's. Mind you I've never tried it but if you listed the D-Player at the top of the LS slot... then followed with a normal Center behind him... and then made sure that the D-Player in the LS slot was the ONLY starter (wherever) on all XP's and FG's (I would guess an outside position)... then because he's the starter on those formations in a different slot... then the Center listed as #2 on the LS depth chart would come in and play the LS position.

Mind you this is just an educated guess. I've never tried it before. Might start trying it now.


Damnit Theo...you googled it, didnít you?

This is what I had for a STOP center playing all special teams and blocking in GL formation

The stat keeping is a joke (for ST's), we should be able to put a pure Defender in at LS on Punts if we want to without needing to remove a "normal" center for FG tries and XP attempts, and there's no way any dot that plays one snap on ST's should ever win the ST MVP award (yes... it's happened before).

Actually it simply came to me once you posted it. I felt damn stupid having complained about how GLB set up the ST depth chart choices for a long time when a somewhat simply solution was right in front of me all that time.

On LS D-League will grab a DT or almost any slot for return.
Would that CPU not calculate penalties?
