Individual Players Kick/Punt Return Fumbles

Postby eliasond » Mon Dec 06, 2010 4:04 pm

I know we've beat the issue to death about whether or not to give the individual player 6 pts for a return TD in addition to the def/ST (which I'm still in favor of by the way).

But here's a little side topic. How come the individual player gets penalized 1 pt for losing a fumble on a kick return if they cannot get 6 pts for a TD? Seems like a double-penalty to me. They should either be subject to both or neither.

It happened to Sproles yesterday, and several others over the course of the season.

It's my understanding that Fanball manually credits back the one point on the fumbles.

If they credit it back, that's great, I wasn't aware of that. Sproles still has a minus 1 though for Sunday, and I'm pretty sure that was on a kick return. Daren.

We'll look into that and get it fixed Daren. That is a result of the way the stat feed is sent to us. We then reverse that so the player is not issued a deduction for the special teams fumble.
