    Seattle's defense touchdown has been removed from the Yahoo scoring. A 10 yrd fumble return.

    Why?

    • this is bullshit i lost by 4 i needed this TD they better change it im sooo mad!

    • I complained and got the same copy paste email every other Seattle owner got. however, I complained again and this is the second email I got:

      "Hello,

      Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

      I appreciate your inquiry with regards to the fumble recovery return TD
      by Seattle.

      Engineering is currently working on a scoring fix in order to credit the
      Seattle DEF with the TD."

      That was followed by the same copy paste email.

      The point is, if enough people complain with the same valid points everyone has been raising, maybe Seattle's D will correctly be awarded with a TD.

        Hello,

        Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

        I appreciate your inquiry with regards to the fumble recovery return TD
        by Seattle.

        Engineering is currently working on a scoring fix in order to credit the
        Seattle DEF with the TD.

        This play is currently being recorded as an offensive fumble return TD
        as Seattle had possession of the football, fumbled, recovered the
        football and scored a TD. Therefore, the Seattle DEF is not credited
        with a TD on the play.

        Here is the play-by-play description:

        Frank Gore rushed up the middle for 5 yard loss. Frank Gore fumbled.
        Marcus Trufant recovered fumble and returned for 4 yards. Marcus Trufant
        fumbled. Craig Terrill recovered fumble and returned for 10 yards
        (Olindo Mare made PAT)

        Therefore, Craig Terrill is being credited with an offensive fumble
        return TD in leagues that use the stat category.

        Please feel free to email me again with any further comments or
        questions.

    • You can send Yahoo Sports a message about them snubbing your Sea DST's TD by clicking on "Help" at the top of your window. Select "Contact Us". Click on "Tech Support". Then stress your frustrations and click Send.

    • They gave the pts to the Seattle D on NFL.com FF. WTH yahoo, this would be as bad as the fumble call in the San Diego game. I don't think my offense recovered the fumble in the endzone? Get it right yahoo and fix this crap.

    • You can report scoring errors from this page:

      http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/football/scoring/football-01.html

      It is located in the Yahoo! Fantasy Football FAQ section, "Where do I direct scoring disputes?"

      There is a button on the bottom, click the link, explain the scenario, and reference the Box Score from the game. This SHOULD be a defensive TD for SEATTLE......

      Let's get our TD!!!

    • heres what Yahoo had to say :

      I appreciate your inquiry with regards to league scoring.

      We are working with our data provider on this play. Normally a double
      fumble negates points as the fumble recovery and ensuing TD have to take
      place after a change of possession. Since there was no change of
      possession on the second fumble recovery it may negate the points.
      Please keep in mind the commissioner of a Private PLUS league can
      manually award points if they disagree with the official decision.

      The NFL forwards us stat corrections every week on Wednesday night, we
      apply them Thursday morning. At that time if you do not see a correction
      you can manually award the points via your commissioner tools.

      ** You can click on the 'Stat Corrections' link from the 'Players' tab
      to view a list of corrections that have been processed in your league.

      *** Please note that any statistical changes that are made will only
      impact head-to-head matchups if they are made before the first game of
      the following week.

      Please feel free to email me again with any further comments or
      questions.

      Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Sports.

    • I have been in talks with several of my friends. I went to NFL.com and they DO NOT have Seattle with a touchdown scored on a fumble recovery. They have an interception TD but not a fumble. Not sure what happened but I am sure if it should be changed then they will change it.

    • Answere under the commishener`s message board.

    • I doubt this will change. The same thing happened a couple years back as well. Everyone complained, Yahoo did nothing but try to justify the move. It makes no sense. Every other fantasy site awards a defensive TD, even the NFL stats record this a def TD; what else do you need?

      I guess Yahoo is above the NFL. The impact of this is HUGE and probably reason enough for my three leagues to be on sportsline next year.

      !!RIDICULOUS!!

    • I was up 121 to 108 and was praying for westbrook to do poorly so i could win, now I'll probably lose for sure because of this. If every other site is posting this as a Defensive touchdown, why the hell isn't yahoo?
