The NFL’s opening Sunday isn’t the NFL opening Sunday to some people, it’s the time fantasy football gets seriously cooking. Except for those playing on ESPN, it wasn’t.
The company’s fantasy football app went down on Sunday (a year after the same thing happened), and people weren’t exactly happy about it.
Here's ESPN's announcement:
We are aware of the current technical difficulties. We apologize for the inconvenience & are working to resolve the issue ASAP.— ESPN Fantasy Sports (@ESPNFantasy) September 11, 2016
