Amen, dgroundhog. Sorry Huge.

To give a really simple example...

Cornerback intercepts a pass, returns it for a TD.

Under dgroundhog - Defensive TD.

Under Huge - Offensive TD?

In my opinion, you should think that you drafted individual defensive players, but happen to have every defensive player from one team. Do you guys have an easier way to think about it?

I'm in the same Yahoo quandry. My thoughts: if the ball is tipped BOTH teams are eligible . . .but it counts as an Offensive
TD if the offense catches it and scores and a DEF TD if the defense picks it and scores . . . Well, when the ball is fumbled both teams are eligible as well. . . therefore it would seem to me that McCardell, on the field as an OFFENSIVE PLAYER, would receive the points, NOT the Tampa Def . . . besides, shouldn't the team who drafted McC get the points rather than the team who drafted the Tampa D (which obviously doesnt include McC)? The team that drafted him assumes the risk and should get the reward . . .True?

Hold up. I faced McCardell and Tampa D and lost in a close match. Is there ANY WAY they should both get credit for TDs?

Right now on Yahoo, they have that TD credited to the TB D but not credited to MacCardell. I think that they will eventually change it to take a TD away from the TB D and add a TD to McCardell, so in your case it would make no difference. However, I also think that the fumble recovery credited to the TB D should also be taken off so it might affect you if you're within 2 pts.

*looks at the title of the website*

Looks like a Fantasy Football website to me.

You know, the types of websites where individual players performance on the field is more important than the results of the games themselves?

Who won or lost is irrelevant.

And yes, it definitely counts against the colts defense, why wouldn't it?

Yea, I guess you are right. The D became the O, then went back when he fumbled.

The TD was scored by an offensive player during an offensive possession. It should be an offensive TD credited to McCardell as a WR along with 57yds rushing. When the play ended there was no change of possession so no turnover points (INT/FR) are given.

Just my $0.02 (Depending on the yahoo gods, I either won or lost vs. the Tampa D).
QB: A. Brooks; P. Ramsey
RB: C. Portis; T. Henry; M. Williams; L. Gordon
WR: J. Horn; L. Coles; K. Robinson; C. Rogers
TE: A. Crumpler; D. Clark
K: S. Janikowski; O. Mare
Def: Panthers; Falcons
----
Start: QB, RBx2, WRx2, TE, K, Def

Sorry to me? I'm right. Sorry to you. CBS Sportsline just put this out:

"Tampa's Defense Awarded TD

Keenan McCardell's fumble recovery for a touchdown on Monday night was awarded to the Buccaneers defense, not McCardell. Since there was a change of possession on the play, McCardell was acting as a defensive player."

This goes back to the fact that QBs can get hit after an INT because it's a change of possession. If it wasn't a change of posession, then it would be roughing the passer.

Don't front.

Yahoo doesn't seem to giving McCardell credit at all for it.

counting it as a defensive td.
