scoring question...championship on the line

Postby Shaffe » Mon Dec 22, 2003 1:44 pm

i've got a bit of a sticky situation on my hands here. in the championship game in the league i commish, team A is up 33-23 on team B (low scoring week in my league big time). but team B has the tampa bay defense. brad johnson threw an interception that was returned for a td in the tampa game, should the 6 points from the touchdown count against the tampa bay defense? i made somewhat of a presonal decision earlier in the year that the td woudln't count but the pat would, this was because we counted special taems scoring to the defense. the way our league scores is that for every point less than 23 the defense gives up, it's +1 point. likewise it's -1 point for every point over 23. so if a defnese gives up 24 (the adjusted amount for the tampa game) it would be -1. when you add in fumbles/interceptions (3 each) and sacks (2 each), the tampa defense should have scored +2 after it all if the td doesn't count. the major thing is though, it's not in writing anywhere one way or the other. what should i do?

If it's not in writing, you're screwed. Your only option is to go back and show the league how you scored this throughout the year.

in case it matters, my team isn't one of these teams so i'm completely impartial.

that doesn't matter. Rules are rules. You MUST follow them or be consistant.

If this blows up in your face, have 1st and 2nd split the pot.

i just talked to both of them on the phone and they both agreed that tampa's defense would be credited with 6 points less than the stat provider gave us. good thing too or else it could have gotten ugly.
