It’s a bold strategy to run a 28-hour-marathon promoting how well your Fantasy Football app works only to have it crash and burn the first Sunday of the regular season, but ESPN is just a bold company. Like Skynet. Or Umbrella Corp.
You’d think having millions users would’ve prompted them to cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i’ like twenty-six times over, but this is ESPN we’re talking about. We’re pretty sure a burnt potato was in charge of making sure the app worked. Needless to say, ESPN felt the wrath of nearly 6.3 million pissed-off users.
