Why a fantasy player says he'll now name his firstborn after Wade Phillips

From ESPN - December 7, 2017

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Wade Phillips is not just helping the Los Angeles Rams' defense -- he's helping the fantasy football community.

One of Phillips' outside linebackers, Robert Quinn, was initially given a tackle for loss after bringing down quarterback Blaine Gabbert midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday's 32-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. But Phillips had NFL statisticians change it to a sack, a development he announced via his Twitter account.

"The guys at the game sometimes make mistakes," Phillips said. "In this case they did. I have got I do not know how many tweets back saying, 'Thank you very much because I got another point in fantasy football and I won my league.' One of them said he's going to name his firstborn after me. OK, you can name him 'Coach.'"

@sonofbum just won me my fantasy football game with a tweet!! Thanks for the extra sack point, naming my first child after you
