The case of the missing touchdown

11 posts in this topic

So listen to this...

I lost this week by one lousy point, however, I didn't really lose...at least i hope not anyway. I have Edgerrin James on my team. Against the Rams, Edge ran a goaline carry into the endzone, and fumbled the ball. It was recovered by Reggie Wells, a Cardinal O-lineman, so it was a Cardinal touchdown. This is what the official NFL box score reads as. However, Rams coach Scott Linehan challenged the fumble, saying Edge was down on the one before he fumbled, and that would have made it 4th and 1 on the 1. He lost the challenge, but the officials did reverse the call, saying the Edge broke the plane with the ball before he fumbled, and gave him the touchdown. If you read the Associated Press story of the game (found on the NFL's website, ESPN's and Yahoo's) it substantiates this, and even says that James scored a touchdown. We play on Yahoo's league, and it doesn't reflect this touchdown, if it did I would win this week. I emailed Yahoo, and they said until the official NFL boxscore changes, I am out of luck. I have emailed the NFL but don't have a response yet. I know it's a long shot, but has anyone else had anything like this happen to them?

that would be awesome if they changed it! I lost by 2 pts with edge and if he gets the TD I win by 4!!! The best part is if I win I am still undefeated this year! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

They (Elias Sports Bureau) don't typically release the official scoring changes until later in the week, although I'm not sure if Yahoo will go back and correct it after the fact. I know they have in the past on some strange plays with changes of possessions plus scoring, so it's a matter of waiting now. I'll check my sources later in the week to see if it shows up as an official scoring change.

They'll correct it. I've got edge but he's on the bench just give them a week or so and it will change. And good investigating man.

this happend last year with donavan mcnabb and one of his recievers. I dont remember the exact details but I remember it happening because I was in the same boat as you. I had McNabb as my QB and the score of that one play/TD would change the outcome of who won my matchup that week.

It took a couple days and I had chalked it up as a loss that week, but a few days later it was corrected and I ended up winning that week.

I say give it a few days and let them sort it out. Its amazing how far we go and how one play can effect the outcome of the FF leagues. I guess when you play for money its gets pretty serious lol.

Wally or LMIT,

Is there a deadline by which they would have to make a call? I would love to know this too for a couple of my leagues...

Thursday is typically the day of the week that the scoring corrections are published.

In the league I'm in (Fanball) the site does not correct the scoring so it has to be done manually by the commissioner if someone challenges the results. A challenge has to come before the next week's games begin though, according to our rules.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
