Scoring Change Late in the Week, Who Should Get the W?

Postby sjo426 » Sat Nov 10, 2007 10:16 am

Ok, my 12 team auction league. This league has 3 divisions of 4 teams, top 6 make the playoffs, top 2 get a bye for the first round.

Ok, so team A lost to team B after Monday night’s game 94 – 90. Then on Friday the scores changed and team A now defeated team B 90.8 to 89.9. So the commish decided that that wasn’t fair and gave the W back to team B. The commish said it wasn’t fair that this happened after the waiver wire period and after our trade deadline (which just happened to be this week). Also we have known the scoring wasn't official until Saturday, it just so happens this time the late scoring change had an effect on the outcome.

Everyone agrees we should start a new rule change that says the scores should be final as of Tuesday morning but who should get the victory?

Thanks

Many stats aren't released as "final" by the NFL until later in the week. That's why scores are UNOFFICIAL until Saturday. I can recall last year a big scoring change for Donovan McNabb when his receiver had caught a pass then lateraled to another guy who went for the score. Donovan didn't get credit for the TD until Wedenesday that week (which was the correct call).

Just 2 weeks ago there was a Tuesday adjustment on ESPN for Jeff Garcia (who was not charged with 2 fumbles) and the GIANTS DEF on Friday for a couple of sacks they hadn't gotten credit for. I ended up losing since I had Garcia and my opponent the GIANTS D. Again, the correct call.

It's better to be right and take a couple of days to do it than be in a hurry. In the days when FFball was played before the internet, it took boxscores and pencil & paper and about 3-4 days to get it right. Not allowing the corrections is bush league.

Exactly. ;-D


If the NFL makes a scoring change, then the scores of the fantasy games affected should change as well...no matter how late the scoring change is. The whole purpose is to have the correct score. And to repeat what RCR said:

Your league is basically agreeing to allow someone to lose a game that they should've won (and vice versa)?!? That's not a league that I'd like to join. I've been on the wrong end and the right end of scoring changes. Being on the wrong end sucks, but that's the score of the game! Having the CORRECT score is all that matters.

Yep. If the NFL changes it, you have to change it, otherwise, you aren't doing fantasy football, you are just in pure fantasy mode.
