Can a player make himself down with out being touched or going out of bounds to end the play, by putting his knee down or sliding like a quarterback?

Even if he does hit a knee/slide, he still has to be touched by an opposing player.

Taken from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Accusations have surfaced about Julian Tavarez doctoring the baseball with a foreign substance that he hides on the bill of his cap.

''It's ridiculous,'' Tavarez said. ''They checked my hat last year, too, and never found anything. They're just trying to get inside my head. But I won't let them.'' Just to demonstrate that no one was getting inside his head, Tavarez decided to ramble on for another hour or two and provide a quote of the year possibility. ''Some people like skinny women. I like fat women. Some people like young women. I like older women. Some people like poor women. I like rich women,'' Tavarez said. ''Some people like clean hats. I like my dirty hat.''

Back in the day, you also used to be able to down yourself by just yelling "DOWN!". 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).

Wrong. 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.

I think he read that story back in March (The W) but it came out later (and later in that thread!) that Tebow did not get to choose. (I don't have a point, but I think that thread from March is pretty amusing so I needed an excuse to link it)
