    --- Heres the scenario..
    --- 3rd quarter, your up 35-27 and the computer is driving, you fail to stop
    --- them from getting the TD, the score is 35-33 and you know they are going
    --- for the tie, you read the offense wrong and the waltz in for an easy 2
    --- point conversion, only instead of being tied, the score is now 41-35, the
    --- computer somehow is given an extra 6 points.

      WEIRD STUFF: Deflection Glitch

    --- When you block/deflect a field goal, if a member of your team
    --- catches it, you can of course, return it, however, the screen
    --- doesnt flip to where you run up screen, instead you continute
    --- running downscreen, which looks really strange.
    
       This doesn't happen on the 1.1 machines I play... is this what 1.21
       now does?

      WEIRD STUFF: More on the Deflection Glitch

    --- (...) with the Deflection Glitch, I've seen that on the 1.1 machine I
    --- play on.  The weirdest part was that the defensive made no attempt to
    --- tackle me - it just looked like a giant congo line as about 10 players
    --- from their team *followed* my guy about 60 yards before the computer
    --- registered the turnover, gave the "Interception!" sound and graphic, and
    --- flipped the screen around.  Pretty cool.

      WEIRD STUFF: And even *more* on the Deflection Glitch

    --- Yesterday I blocked a field goal, and one of my defenders caught it
    --- and was running down the field.  Of course I experienced the glitch
    --- we already know about where the screen doesn't rotate around.
    ---
    --- Well, I fumbled.  This is where it got *real* strange.  The camera
    --- zoomed back *incredibly* far.  The whole of the stadium was an image
    --- smaller than my palm, floating in the upper left corner of a black
    --- screen.  On the next play, thankfully, everything was returned to
    --- normal.

    --- Glitch/Bug or Secret Code? - You Decide:
    --- How I did this I am not exactly sure, i tried enter 6 - 6 - 6, then
    --- pressing down to lock it in, only it did not lock it, it did not reset
    --- all blocks to 0 - 0 - 0, so i hit all 3 other directions, not sure what
    --- order, still no lock, i moved the stick 360 degrees clockwise several
    --- times, still, no luck, so i did the same thing counter-clockwise, and
    --- again, NO LUCK.  Then the game started, everything was normal, EXCEPT
    --- that on the play select screen I could NEVER move down, i could go up,
    --- left, right, but not down..
    
       Too weird...
