not important

two things that are of mild import to playmaker, i just happen to be bored and have too much time:

1. If a play has a lateral diagrammed out of bounds, and a player other than the QB throws it they have a chance of throwing it forward (because of their lack of throwing skill) for positive yardage, while the simulator counts it as a lateral and a fumble that went out of bounds instead of an incomplete pass. This would be an inconsistent way to gain yardage (they sometimes succesfully throw it backwards for a loss), but it is possible

2. I have an admittedly ridiculous play in which the QB takes the snap makes a quick lateral to the FB standing about three yards away who in turn makes a quick lateral to the HB (also about three yards away) and the HB tosses it up for to reciever. This consistently nets me 1-7 yards against my defense on the practice field, however it is always called back for an "illegal forward pass" against my FB whose lateral is clearly backwards. Then I moved the FB further forwards  just to be sure, and the penalty is now called on the HB.

No need to reply to this, I just like this easter egg kinda stuff. no need to rework any code or anything for this silliness.

The game does allow this stuff so your play is drawn illegally.  The QB is the player throwing the first pass and then the HB is throwing the second pass.  This is illegal excluding high school rules.  Try this:  QB laterals diagonally backward to the FB who laterals diagonally backward to the HB who throws the pass.  This will be legal and the game will allow it.
