You literally had one job.
Yesterday was one of the biggest days of the sports calendar. The true start to the 2016 NFL season, as there was a full slate of games. It's also one of the biggest days of the fantasy sports calendar, because on opening day everybody has a chance. We're all 0-0. Everybody truly believes, maybe this is the year I finally win. Cause in a few weeks when there are going to be thousands of 0-5 fantasy teams with no chance. Probably millions of teams with the same shitty, played out names using Harambe ( you aren't original, I agree Harambe was killed in vain as well, but just be better and more original. RIP in Peace sweet boy) so the buzz of fantasy football will die down a little. Yesterday was the biggest day of the year fantasy wise and ESPN decided to celebrate this by having not only the app crash, but the internet version went down as well.
Obviously (maybe) ESPN didn't do this on purpose, but seriously be better ESPN. People are already cutting the cable cord and not watching you as much. You cannot fuck up fantasy football. I do not want to under sell it....Literally millions of people were upset yesterday and it was all your fault, good job. I cannot stand ESPN but cannot turn my back on the monopoly they're running, but I'm sure this problem today will lead to many people playing leagues with yahoo next season.
Now I know literally less than nothing when it comes to anything about computers other than how to type on a keyboard, but come on you have to be better. Maybe run a few tests? Idk, I'd think you'd want to be ready for day 1. Yeah maybe in week 11 this can happen and the world won't explode, but not week 1. I don't understand servers or anything but idk maybe, have some back up? How does this happen? And how does it take 5 hours to fix this? You can't get some nerds to fix the app in an hour?
Also I don't want to have to be the one to say it, but has cyber-terrorism been ruled out yet? I mean the stars were aligning.... 15 year anniversary of 9/11, week 1 NFL, and America's obsession with fantasy football. Obviously ISIS and other big threats have bigger things to worry about then us Americans playing fantasy football. But if it was them, that is one great troll job. Because in the grand scheme of things, it's harmless but really irritated millions of people. Okay maybe not harmless, but I hope you can get my point.
