ESPN Catches Heat For Fantasy Football Auction

ESPN conducted a fantasy football auction which drew the ire of more than a few viewers.

Fantasy football auctions are not completely uncommon, but are far from the most version of the phenomenon.

ESPN2’s recent stab at auctioning off players as part of its Fantasy Sports Marathon Monday night drew outrage from several folks on social media, who said the event resembled a slave auction.

White players, such as Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, were part of the draft, the image of an auctioneer “selling” New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. led to many on Twitter to voice their criticism.
