    Yesterday the Elias Sports Bureau ruled that an Eagles TD from Sunday that was originally ruled as coming on a fumble recovery was actually a touchdown pass, because the pass was not caught and fumbled but rather bobbled around and then caught by another guy.

    Sure, there's articles about the play and how it changes McNabb's statistics and the like: http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/sports/16022655.htm

    But you can bet this ruling has a major impact on fantasy football. One of my leagues, it changed the outcome of a game. And since we have no rules covering this, people want to put it up for a vote on if we should accept the ruling or not. We aren't the only league!

    I'm sure Tony K will want to spend 20 minutes on this on PTI today.

    Marvin yawns, but his readers won't.

    It makes an interesting note about NFL stats, that's all.

    As for your fantasy league, TSP, (or anybody else's) nobody gives a fuck but the people playing.
    If you think that will sell papers, you need to go out and get a fucking clue.

    I'm not telling you to write about my league. I am telling you it affects leagues all over the place. And if you don't think this is the kind of thing people want to read about, then you have no clue. If it weren't, newspapers wouldn't already be running fantasy football columns.

    Yup...one fantasy column a week...that this week should include the statistical anomaly. Nothing more to report here.

    Right, TSP.
    Reported the facts and said it would follow tomorrow in the fantasy FB column...where it belongs.
    Not a separate "non-traditional" story, just a fantasy FB report.
