Way too many penalties (Franchise mode)

Why is there 20+ penalty minutes for each team every god damn game I play?
Slashing, Slashing, Slashing, it's pretty much at the point where I play the whole game on special teams. It's ridiculous. I have the sliders all the way down and it's almost as if it's making things worse. I can't possibly be the only person having this problem. Has anyone figured out a solution to this absurd problem that somehow hasn't been fixed?
I have pics and video but this stupid website isn't letting me post it for some reason.

    As someone told me you have to go in to game settings, fine adjustments, and set ai slashing and hooking penalties on like 3 out of 100. That worked for me.

    I have Penalties set to 1/4 and I have turned Slashing completely off. I read somewhere there is a bug with Slashing, but no real detail to support it. But makes sense as I too noticed Slashing as the most prominent penalty, so I just turned it off until I know of another update addressing this issue. Besides, with all the other extremely fair calls, you will not miss this one :)

    I still see games with 25-30 minutes of penalties, just not every game. The average I now see is 4-10 minutes for Season. 10-14 for Playoffs or a little more. Definite CPU aggression change in Playoffs.
