Confusing question...

Postby M_Zimm_ffc » Mon Sep 29, 2003 7:20 pm

Alright I have a question about D scoring.
In my league we score D by how many offensive points scored against. Here is my question:
When a D gives up an offensive td, they are penalized for giving up 7 points, 6 for the td and 1 for the PAT. But when they give up a Deffensive td (int returned for a td) thay are not peanlized at all. My point is, why are they penalized for the extra points when offense scored the td, but not when Deffense does?

Thanks for answering.

my league its the same way.

yahoo league and we have return yards that count for defense points. The return yards are the yards that are on kickoffs and punts though.

good figure.

Penalizing for extra points is a joke unless the Defense gets some kind of bonus for blocking or forcing an extra point miss. Does the D also get penalized for a 2 point conversion? If so, do they get credit if they intercept a two point conversion attempt--I doubt it. In the end, since the rules are equally lame to everyone playing a defense they probably are fair.

Postby hawksfan896 » Mon Sep 29, 2003 11:49 pm guess would be because the defense didn't give up those scores, the offense did. When you have a team D of, say, Detroit (settle down, I'm making a point), Joey Harrington wouldn't be expected to be a factor in the DEFENSE would he? But, if he throws 15 or 16 INTs, certainly some are going to be run back for TDs, through no fault of the Lion's D. Conversly, kicking teams are on the field to make a tackle, and therefore are considered defense...that's why their points given up count against your team D's points given up. I think what it comes down to is if the team on the field, be it normal defense or special teams, is on the field primarily to make tackles and stop the other team from scoring, their's are the only points that would count towards the team D score. Probably.
