I'd watch the game tape from the perspective of the guy killing you.  See if the opponents appear to pause as he goes to shoot them.  This may not be the best way to tell as the ones on youtube are doing it to be obvious.  Tapes helps me verify suspected boosters....especially when they are boosting in final kill cams.

It sounds like it is simply a matter of packet loss and you simply got screwed over due to it. Everyone, except host, would have been stopped had it been a lagswitch. This is just one of those unfortunate events due to playing over the intertubes.

The game blows so much, its impossible to know without theater mode.

Not only the worst cod of all time but its the worst game I have played which is so sad coming from a bil dollar company.
