The ESPN fantasy football app, as well as the desktop version, crashed at the worst possible time. Fantasy football owners haven’t been able to access any of the services since before the games began.
People are outraged as a result. We cannot check our scores. Even worse is if the app doesn’t come up before the next series of games, we cannot make player changes.
ESPN issued an apology. But, that’s not exactly cutting it at this time.
We are aware of the current technical difficulties. We apologize for the inconvenience & are working to resolve the issue ASAP.

Thankfully, while many are outraged, there are many among us who have managed to retain a sense of humor about the whole thing.
Here are some of our favorite responses to how people are handling this.

ESPN fantasy app being down is 100% Goodell's fault. I don't need evidence to know this.
