Mendenhall mistakenly given 100 yard game

Postby gmoney973 » Tue Dec 21, 2010 4:34 pm

Does anyone know if this will be fixed in the stats of fantasy leagues? I'm sure this affects many owners who has mendenhall and counts 100 yard games as bonus points.

"On first-and-10 from the Jets 35 early in the second quarter, Mendenhall gained nine yards to the 26-yard line. After momentary confusion as the chain crew began moving the sticks, referee Peter Morelli's crew put the ball down at the 25 and signaled a first down.

The statistics crew hastily awarded Mendenhall a 10-yard carry -- an extra yard that wound up giving him a 100-yard game. The Steelers went on to score a touchdown on Ben Roethlisberger's nine-yard pass to Matt Spaeth."

Just read the article and came to post. There had to be wins/loses this week due to that crap, we were all going off when it happened during the game, especially where bonus' are given @ 100 yards

Just found this website because I was "googling" the net for NFL stat corrections. Apparently Elias (stat provider/corrector for NFL) issues stat corrections on Wednesday's and then on Thursday mornings, the stat corrections occur on specific fantasy football sites. My site in question is the Yahoo fantasy football leagues - I sent an email to Yahoo when I saw the NFL.com article and video, which is a blatant 9-yard gain. I've been on the Yahoo messageboards discussing this same thing: http://messages.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... f=11&frt=2

anyways, my league offers a 5 FP boost when a RB has a 100-yard game. I lost my 1st round playoff matchup by 3 points. If Elias corrects this issue, then I will end up winning the matchup.

Crossing my fingers!!!

BTW, I don't know if this will get changed. It should, but I don't know ... the whole video is a conspiracy as well ... it was a 9-yard rush, and the Steelers got off another play (a pass play to Mendenhall, that fell incomplete); however the Refs stopped the 2nd-and-1 play after it happened and apparently gave them a 1st down ... WTF? What happened after? Steelers got a TD (9 yards) to Spaeth ... UGH!

dude they don't do stat changes for stuff like that, ever. Sometimes there are changes when
the wrong person gets credited, but never this.

Yikes..one of my Super Bowl teams in my league had Mendy and won by under 2 points..we give 3 points for 100 yard game.

That said, if Yahoo don't change it, I ain't changing it.

holy crap!!!! They changed it!!!

An official scoring change gave Mendenhall 99 yards rushing in Week 15 against the Jets instead of 100 yards, ESPN reports.

Recommendation: The correction likely impacts many fantasy leagues, especially formats that award bonuses for 100-yard games. Mendenhall now has 1,172 yards rushing on the season heading into Thursday's matchup against Carolina.

New stat problem:

In week 16 Big Ben currently only has one fumble lost charged to his stat line. Late in the second half, there was a failed exchange between he and Isaac Redman that is currently listed on Redman's stat line. So far as I knew, in every circumstance where the QB/RB fail the exchange on the handoff, the fumble is charged to the QB. Redman conclusively never had any measure of control of the ball. Any reason to think they might fail to change this one?

And why are the NFL statisticians seemingly clueless on this rule? They seeem to get it wrong EVERY WEEK. Although in my experience it usually/always gets fixed in this situation.
