Update: Yahoo! Fantasy Football Still Sort of Down, Sports Head Ken Fuchs Sorry

If you’re trying to use Yahoo! Fantasy Sports this morning to check on your Fantasy Football or Basketball teams, you’re likely still running into a little trouble.

That’s because Sunday’s truly annoying outage has spilled into Monday.

The engineers over at Yahoo! are still working on identifying the root cause of the issue and fixing it. In the meantime, the head of Yahoo! Sports, Ken Fuchs (exactly how do you pronounce his last name?), sent out an apology e-mail to all users.

Here’s the e-mail I received this morning:

Dear Yahoo! Fantasy Users,

I want to sincerely apologize to all of you about today’s Yahoo! Sports Fantasy outage. As the head of Yahoo! Sports and as a Yahoo! Sports fantasy player myself, I am disappointed that we failed all of our fans today. Our first priority is having the best experience for our users, and today we fell short.

The outage started around Noon ET (awful timing we know) and while our team was on it immediately we are still working on various pieces. Our team is continuing to work on identifying and resolving the root cause. We have restored full functionality on the website, and we’re working for a final fix for our mobile apps. Currently data and scores can be viewed but for now you cannot make transactions or change line-ups from the apps.

We will also use today as an opportunity to improve our set-up so that we hopefully never have an outage like this again. Our fantasy commissioners and players are our biggest priority – we pride ourselves in being able to offer our users with the best fantasy sports experience possible and we take our job to deliver that to you very seriously. Rest assured we will work hard to make sure we continue to deliver on that commitment.

Thanks for playing with us and your patience today,

Ken Fuchs
Head of Yahoo! Sports
