NFL e-mail system crashes

It’s a fairly slow Friday afternoon, so stuff that we’d otherwise overlook becomes more newsworthy.

Here’s one.  Per a league source, the entire NFL e-mail system has crashed, with multiple e-mails to team addresses bouncing back as undelivered.

So we tried sending an e-mail to one of our contacts and, indeed, within two minutes that message came back as undeliverable.

Some might call the situation a “shibacle.”

    More likely your ‘contacts’ just decided to block you.

    Captivating stuff.

  27. Deb says: Apr 9, 2010 3:22 PM

    robert ethan may have a point. Has Zierlein landed anywhere? Maybe he’s at home with nothing to do but surf porn and mass-forward it to the NFL offices. Goodness knows he never seemed to put much energy into working on blocking schemes.
