Tomlinson Fumble- I lost on stat adjustment!!!!!!

Postby NDIrish02 » Mon Nov 17, 2003 1:10 pm

Did anyone watch the SD/Denver game, or see highlights?? I went to bed, up by 1.5 points in my league... I wake up down by .5!!!!! It took a while, but I figured out the difference was a change in the scoring of a fumble. The game recap refers to a Tomlinson fumble on a handoff, but apparently they changed the ruling to a fumble on Flutie. Did anyone see the play??????? This is devestating, I may miss the playoffs because of this, so I really want to know what happened on the play.

It was a botched handoff from Flutie. LT never got the ball.

I SAW AND WONDERING HOW IT WOULD BE SCORED. LOOKED LIKE A 50-50 FUMBLE TO ME. HE GOT THE BALL TO HIM AND WAS DROPED ON THE TRANSITION. I HAVE L.T. ON MY TEAM AND WAS NOT CHARGED FOR A FUMBLE IN MY LEAGUE.

It was scored a fumble in the original box score AND in the game recap they made reference to Tomlinson's fumble. What is the procedure for changing the ruling on a call like that? I know it is irrelevant in the grand scheme, but really really annoying. If it was 50/50, why change it? Shouldn't the original ruling stand? This is like the baseball player going up after the game and lobbying for a change in an error call.

If the K-Rob TD countes for me I win, if not I lose.

You should win Zimm, Robinson will get the TD. Irish, tough luck! I hate it when that happens, but the NFL scores it that way,so...

I saw that play as it happened and from the get-go it should have been credited to Flutie.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.
