I forgot why they changed that rule. Either way, someone smack Cedrick Wilson for me. At least I didn't have him playing (look at the final in the Wiener League (20-team version) to find out why it wouldn't have helped).

All any player must do is kneel down and declare "DOWN". If you recall, this rule caused a big fight at the end of the Packers-Vikings game last year in Lambeau. Chris Walsh of the Vikings did this, and the Packers (Sharper, maybe?) nailed him because he didn't know the rule.
