    I press the Y button to point where my thumb is sore after a game and I still can't achieve a fair catch. My returner just gets clocked unmercifully if there is no room to run.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Have you pressed A to take control of the receiver in the first place?

    I dont think college football has a fair catch, instead I think they have the "halo rule"

    Could be wrong though

    You must select the return man first!

    As the ball is in the air, click the A button to select the return man BUT DO NOT HIT THE D-PAD or JOYSTICK! Doing so will make the return man stop his attempt at getting under the ball. Just click A and choose him, he'll continue running towards the landing spot of the kick. Then hit Y after gaining control of him and he'll raise his hands for the fair catch while still going towards the landing spot.

    It takes a bit of practice but once you get it down it's pretty easy...
