Hey guys, can any of you help me out?.......In my league, I'm 2 pts away from getting a victory against an opponent. I have Brian Urlacher in my yahoo league and on nfl.com it said that he had 10 solo tackles, 2 assisted tackles, a sack, and a fumble recovery. Here's how my league scores D points:
Solo tackles: .5 each Assisted tackles: .25 each INTs - 3 each Forced Fumbles - 3 each Recovered Fumbles - 3 each Sacks - 2 each
In the yahoo scoring, Urlacher was scored a total of 7.5 pts.....So I don't think I got credit for his recovered fumble. I think with the FR, he should have had a total of 10.5 pts, which would give me the victory. Do any of you know for sure if Brian Urlacher did indeed get a fumble recovery, or do any of you know how yahoo works with scoring? (like do they wait to score stuff like that until all the games are done?).....ANY HELP WITH THIS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!!!!.....A WIN IS ON THE LINE!!!! THANKS!!!!
OK, take absolutely NO stock in this whatsoever, this is completely from just what I saw on TV. The only reason I remember it is that nfl.com gave Urlacher credit for it. I don't think he was the one who actually recovered the ball. It was a sack/ff of Culpepper, and Urlacher was one of two Bears who pounced on it, but the other guy looked like the one who actually came away with it. They only showed the replay like once though, so I couldn't really tell for sure. That's why I thought it was strange nfl.com put the fr on there. Yahoo didn't give you credit for the fr, just the tackles and the sack (I use yahoo too). Sorry as I am to say it, I think yahoo got it right.

Well, Yahoo's got to go with whatever the NFL official scorers say, which should be shown on NFL.com. The scorers could change their minds, like they did with the Travis Henry this week, or Yahoo's screwed up, like usual. Last week, they took a couple of days to show that Favre and Bubba Franks got a 2pt conversion, which gave me the win for the week. This week, Yahoo's not giving the Steelers credit for a defensive touchdown, which also would make the difference between winning and losing. Yahoo's giving me WAYYYY more stress than my actual players!!!
yeah, good call.....I mean isn't NFL.COM kind of like the Bible of Football in this situation? Yahoo can't have the authority over the official NFL web site can it?? I mean in the records book, did Urlacher get credit for a fumble recovery? If so, I feel cheated. You think if I wrote Yahoo and fought this, that I could get credit for that FR? I mean, I usually wouldn't mind so much, but this is the difference between me starting out 1-1 or 0-2!! And I have Williams and Henry in a 10 team league for heaven's sake! ANY OTHER TAKES ON THIS?!?!?!?!
if i understand things correctly, the stats for each game are reviewed by the nfl using gamefilm and such and then are made "official." Yahoo then adjusts their stats to the official ones overnight... I've actually had game outcomes change during that period... weird.
