In Topic: We have ST setup for blocked field goals - Titans had one today

15 January 2020 - 11:25 AM

After getting a support ticket response and double-checking the options available... MFL has no option for blocked kicks returned for a TD to count as points against (the opposing) Defense/Special Teams at all.
I asked for them to add this as manually adjusting a box score anytime this happens is not something a Commish should have to add to their league maintenance responsibilities!


As noted above, the kickin* team is not considered special teams. Otherwise fake punts/fgs for a td would be added to special teams tds, and they’re not.

 

The kicking team is (of course) considered special teams... but the outcome of a play determines whether they stay that way.

A kicked ball has to go past the line of scrimmage. When the ball is blocked, it reverts to being an offensive play.

 

It's silly but that's the NFL for you.


In Topic: intentionally locking players out

In our rules since 2012 (as concise as possible):

FCFS Pickups [available Tuesday nights 10:30 pm ET]
- All FCFS pickups are $2.00 in salary
- FCFS is available up until kickoff of each player's individual game
- Players added in a week's FCFS who are then subsequently dropped [in the same week, before that players' game begins] can be unlocked and added by notifying a commissioner

FAQ:

 

"Answer: In order to receive points for blocked field goal (or punts) returned for touchdowns, you will need to have the following scoring rules defined for your "Defense".


To make sure that you receive these points you will have to have the: "Number of Blocked Field Goals TDs" defined for your league.

Note that if you have the "Number of Defensive & Special Teams Touchdowns" then this will be included with those touchdowns. It will not appear if you just have the "Number of Defensive Touchdowns" defined as that only includes Interceptions and Fumbles Returned for a Touchdown.

You would also want to add the "Number of Blocked Punt Goal TDs" as well to your scoring rules."

 

---------------------

 

If it counts in "Number of Defensive & Special Teams Touchdowns," shouldn't it also count in "Number of Offensive & Special Teams Touchdowns?"

Have a gripe in my league about this blocked punt.

For the Ravens D/ST (in question) we have Special Teams & Offensive Points Against as a thing. Not Defensive Points against (i.e. the team's QB throws a pick-6 when the Defense nor Special Teams is even on the field)

 

Looked back and the other 3 punt blocks for TD's that occured in 2019 didn't count either.

 

They become Defense after a block...? Logically, that seems silly & you'd think it should count.

Or has MFL been doing it wrong the entire time...?

I have no idea.
