Why is Yahoo screwing me!

Postby Guest » Tue Oct 07, 2003 7:59 pm

Im down 2 points, indianapolis d is all I have left, that crazy game is coming towards an end, my hopes of a victory are all but dead, then all of a sudden, BAM! BLOCKED FIELD GOAL! THATS WORTH 3 POINTS BABY! I WIN! Or so I thought... It seems that yahoo didn't count that blocked field goal towards Indi's score. WHY THE HELL NOT! It's tuesday now and I assume that if yahoo intended to correct this it would have already been corrected. Whats going on can somebody feel me in here, has this bull$hit cost anybody else a game. Thanks for any replys.

I don't know why, but is is the same way in my league too. I don't have them, so I don't care, but the Colts D didn't get credited for a blocked FG. That stinks.

I saw that too, my friend has the Colts D and got nothing for it.

Stay calm, yahoo often updates things like that long after the games.

Be patient, my tears were long since dry when they changed the scoring on Henry's fumble and I ended up winning. I think it took until Thursday.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Thats awesome news guys I hope they change it cause unlike the mcardell fumble recovery td situation, or the warren sap bootylicious td situation, there was nothing confusing about this play, it was simply a blocked field goal, and it should have been recorded on Indi's D.

For what it's worth, I don't think it's going to be changed because the NFL doesn't have it as a blocked kick either (their website play by play has it as just being missed).

I think to be considered blocked, the ball can't pass the line of scrimmage - this was tipped and fell past the line of scrimmage...
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

have you tried e-mailing anyone at Yahoo about it?

They can always change the scoring any time in the season.

"How does scoring for blocked kicks work?
Blocked kicks are counted only in instances where a kick (FG, PAT or punt) is touched by the defense and remains behind the original line of scrimmage.
If a FG or PAT is touched by the defense, but goes beyond the line of scrimmage, it is counted as a missed FG or PAT only.

Similarly, if a punt is touched by the defense, but goes beyond the line of scrimmage, the punter is credited with a punt of that yardage.

For example, Jason Baker has a punt touched by a Miami defender. The punt then goes 6 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. This would constitute a 6-yard punt, with no blocked kick awarded to the Miami defense.

** Please note that most recaps will refer to any tipping or deflection of a kick with the word 'block.' Therefore, there may be differences between the written accounts and fantasy scoring. "


from yahoo rules

I saw the hightlight of that play in passing, but do you think it fit that rule?

did a Colts player block it and the ball go pass the line?

according to NFL.com, the ball was tipped and landed 6 yds past the line of scrimmage.

Per the yahoo rules you posted, it's not a block
