BTW, I think that offensive fumble return TD is a new stat category this year. Last year, McCardell was involved in a similar play and there was a quite an uproar about how it scored (I think Yahoo gave the TD to Tampa DST).
So, I won't be surprised if next year we see a stat called 'Defensive Fumble Return TD'.

Did you guys SEE this TD? I did not, but from every description I have heard and read of it, it should without a doubt be worth 6 points for the Ravens Defense, right? If it was a TD, Yahoo will eventually correct the problem.
I tried too. Here is their generic response, which has almost nothing to do with my request! Cliff at Yahoo! Help, you suck.

Yahoo! was wrong to take away the defensive touchdown for Baltimore. A defensive player intercepted it, a defensive player recovered the fumble, a defensive player scored the touchdown. Therefore, it's a defensive TD!!!

i remember that play...brad johnson passed, it was picked off, then the guy who picked it off fumbled, mcardell recovered and scored a td. no one was credited with a td in yahoo scoring. i remember because i had both keenan and the bucs DST and i was pissed!
yeah thats crappy about the ravens not getting credited for the td return on DST. cbs sportsline gave credit.
Man, I got seriously hosed!
I ended up in a freaking tie (against the guy I'm in contention with for the final playoff spot) this week due to the non-TD for my Baltimore D.
Where did my points disappear to?

No, because the fumble wasn't lost.
I don't have Baltimore's defense this year, but I agree, it should count as a TD for them. Bottom line is that a defensive player at the time of the snap scored the TD. Yahoo is always stupid on anything that is even partially controversal.
On a side note, does that 6 points count against Cincinatti's defense? That could also cost a couple points in leagues that count scoring against.
