Found September 24, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
For fantasy football owners of Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball you lost points because your running backs aren’t good at Rock-Paper-Scissors. During the 4th quarter of Denver rout of the Oakland Raiders it was Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman who scored a chippie touchdown and it was all because he won a child’s game. From USA TODAY: As the officials deliberated if Hillman had crossed the goal line after a 13-yard gain, Hillman, Moreno and Ball decided to play rock-paper-scissors for which running back would get the goal line carry if the score was overturned. Hillman said Moreno threw down a rock one beat too early and was disqualified, and Hillman’s scissors trumped Ball’s paper. So on the next play, it was Hillman’s touchdown. I guess thumb wrestling would have been too time-consuming. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
