I hope it helps others... I was trying to keep a fairly resolute sprite but hit this limitation... now rethinking my approach. Learning how to tie/sync together multiple sheets.

I was trying to take advantage of image caching and go the sprite route vs. using an animated gif (I don't want to force a new download just to get the animation to play).



In case someone stumbles on this and really wants to force and image to re-download here you go:

document.getElementById("image-id").style.backgroundImage = "url(/assets/img/image-id.gif?"+new Date().getTime()+")";

Thanks for commenting and liking.
