To overrule the official NFL stats like this is absurd. Does your league review every single play and make their own determination about how a play should have been scored?
In short, it is absurd it even got this far, you are being screwed without lube, and regardless of the outcome of this sham of a vote, there is no way that I would be returning to this league.

Oh the hughmanity, an agreement to do what one wishes with their own money that was rightfully won. Simply asking the commish/treasurer to distribute differently to save the extra step (and in the case of paypal, possible added expense) of distributing the money. I really wish I had your stress free lives that something like this was an actual concern. Or maybe I should just be thankful that I treat this as the fun hobby that it should be, and making a little money can be a nice bonus.
It's all about reducing volatility. I'm not playing for mortgage money in any of my leagues (other than FFPC, but again, the money used to buy in is budgeted and not affecting my lifestyle), so none of the winnings that I stand to gain in any of my leagues are life changing or would go to serve any purpose than to maybe see me hand it to my wife so she can go to the spa or something. Other members of the league may not be in the same boat and have a greater need for the money or it would be more significant for them - so no big deal. I'm primarily playing for the pride/challenge of winning the damn league, the money is nothing more than a little icing on the top. I am in two championship games this weekend - both in BOTH leagues - one is the Huddle California league - winner is scheduled to get 270, 2nd place 150. If my opponent wanted to split it say 200 each and winner gets the extra 20, who the f cares, we're still playing the game out for the bragging rights of being the champion. MSHB is a league where the buy in is for charity and we play for pride - and I am actually much more interested in winning that league because it is an 18 team IDP league, and I am far from being very IDP knowledgable, so the prestige of winning that league does mean a lot more to me than the potential extra $120 for winning the Cali league.
I have to admit, I'm actually surprised, though I probably shouldn't have been, that people would actually take offense, and be adamantly opposed, to the idea of two owners agreeing to a different distribution of the prize pool that is mutually beneficial to them once they reached the title game.

whomper scored a 2. But he took the WonderPoker test. He only got a 2 because he got credit for signing into moneymakers.
skylive scored a 48. But he took the WonderMusic test. Missed one question because they asked about a song made after 1952.
perch scored a 6. But he took the WonderCrat test. After the test he drew down on the sheet of paper.
detlef scored a 0. He thought the test was an essay exam, and was still writing when the proctor came around to collect the tests.
irish scored a 50. But he took the WonderFantasy test. Aced it.
brentastic scored a 0. He took his test, rolled it up with some good Colombian gold, and smoked it.

Speak for yourself. You need to work on your sponsorship of your live scoring and roster pages. Lucas Oil ought to be all over that.
Leon Hall pays me $3 per yr just to roster him. There are a couple guys that should be paying me triple that, but they'll go unnamed.

To me once Denver had not one but TWO possessions to win with just a FG in OT the ability to kill Fox for not taking a shot with 31 seconds left in the game goes WAY down. Okay he didn't take a shot with 31 seconds left BUT the great Peyton had TWO chances to win the game WITH A FG ONLY and he didn't get it done. The second chance he threw an int that won the game for the Ravens.
If Peyton never saw the ball again, or even if Balt kicked a FG on the first possession of OT Fox would get more blame. But with the way it went down, two possessions for Peyton needing only a FG, I just don't see how we can kill Fox after that.
Disagree. We don't destroy John Fox for putting the ball in Peyton Manning's hands at the end of regulation to try to get the ball into FG range. We destroy Peyton Manning. If the shoe was on the other foot, we would destroy John Harbaugh instead of Flacco. Denver brought Peyton Manning there to help them get over the hump. He can't do that kneeling down with 31 seconds left and two timeouts.
I don't understand how John Fox isn't responsible for all of this. He is the head coach. So Rahim Moore screwed up. Did a coach get in his ear before they took the field saying let NOBODY get behind you? Should Moore know that? Probably. But when a player makes a mental mistake like that (and let's face it, by then the deep ball had already burned Denver twice), you have to look at coaching to some degree.
John Fox is the most sacless coach in the NFL. People crucified Belichick for going for it on 4th and 1 or 2 at Indy years ago. I say to hell with that. He was trying to win the game. Fox made decision after decision that shows that he would rather play to NOT lose. And that, to me, is nutless, cowardly garbage.
I have never felt so disgusted with a Denver loss as this one. Ever. What sort of message does he send his offense by saying "kneel on it"? I'll tell you... it's a message that says "I don't trust you". Look what Atlanta did with just about the same amount of time against Seattle? Granted, Atlanta was down 1 and HAD to try to get into FG range. I agree wboleheartedly with Spinal Tapp's assessment about the 3rd down play where they called that pussified vanilla run. Baltimore was looking for the run. They knew it was highly likely to be a run to milk clock. Grow some freakin' marbles and run a play action pass there. Worst case - tell Peyton that if it's not there to take a sack and punt so you still get your precious clock milking.
This was the exact kind of coaching I feared when Denver hired Fox - a gutless, conservative decision maker who plays to not lose. I seriously don't know how "risk aversion" and "NFL head coach" can coexist.
BTW, did anyone think that Peyton's INT was almost EXACTLY like Favre's INT against the Saints in the NFC Championship game in 2009? Scrambled right, awkward cross body throw left. I cringed when he threw it even before it was picked off. Really bad decision, and unfortunately a situation that never should have even happened if not for awful pass D and nutless coaching.

Politics is not the problem her IMO. The problem is that DMD and WW lost enough control over this site when they sold it that it has become a shell of it's former self. Sometimes it just needs to be about more than just the money. USA today and what this has all become.
Someone who still has half a brain needs to go back and reread Sky's travels after he lost his best friend. The love and good times that were poured out to him in his time of need. While you are at it reread all that is written about the struggles and pure generosity that unfolded after Katrina.
The people you idiots are banning are the very people who allowed you to sell this fucking thing in the first place.
I will find a way to keep up with my Both leagues. Outside of that I am out!

It kills me to watch the huddle die out . Chopping down a cornerstone member is gonna be the final straw for many people here. Thats not a threat, its just reality. I know the young 20 year old fantasy junkies are maybe financially worth more than the old guard but never forget our contribution and loyalty to this place .
