ESPN Fantasy Football 2012 app vanishes, taking fantasy teams with it

ESPN Fantasy Football 2012

The ESPN Fantasy Football 2012 app has vanished from the Windows Phone Store and those who have been using the app have seen their teams vanish as well. The app itself has disappeared from the Nokia Collection as well but if you follow this link, you can still find the app's listing.

Unfortunately, the Nokia exclusive is noted (for both Windows Phone 7 and 8) as not being available for your device from your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone.  From the online store, the app is simply listed as "not available online" likely due to the Nokia exclusivity.

We reached out to ESPN's Customer Care and received this reply,

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We're currently aware of the problem and are working to resolve it as expeditiously as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we resolve this."

Hopefully ESPN will restore order to the fantasy football app as well as everyone's fantasy teams. If we hear of anything new on this, we'll pass it on. In the meantime, you can head over to this WPCentral forum discussion and share your thoughts on the matter.

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

It had an update yesterday which completely broke it, it wouldn't even list your team. It became useless. Good move on their part to take it down & fix it, though it should've never been broken.

Couldnt they have broken it after MNF? Ha ha.

Lol broke it hours before, smh

Is fantasy football another way to say American Football or another sport entirety?

jsnod25 says:

Its American football but it's a way to make your own team with all real players, and based on how they perform on game days, they score your team some points. Then you stack your team against your friends team, and see who's is better. Its pretty fun if you enjoy American football, but they have it for nearly all sports as well, not just football.

Its like WOW for football fanatics.

If I could like a comment it would have to be this one. People at work are looking at me strange cause I just burst out laughing. Thank you lol

Still working for i just gotta figure out what im going to do for the weekend. I have Vick and Alex Smith, so clearly I am going to the free agent pool. Might not be much available, who might be available with a favorable match up??

Skol Vikings!

Still working for me... Even got an update last night :)

When will we see a yahoo fantasy football app

The generic fantasy football app looks decent.  There was a better app I saw last week called StatGnome but that disappeared too.

MediaCastleX says:

How about a fantasy strike after a fantasy dispute over know what? I'm sorry, that may be in poor taste, idk what I was thinking. At least players are dedicated enough to be able to play without the app...good luck our there!

rcballa12 says:

I hope that they do fix this app. The mobile website is an alternative for the time being, but not ideal.

Wacft says:

It really stinks that the app is missing or not working correctly for you guys. I guess you know how everyone not using a Nokia phone feels...

rcballa12 says:

Teams are back! No update needed (aka it was a server-side issue)

Loumedia says:

ESPN ff app is back in the Nokia collection
