ESPN Employees Banned From Filling Out NCAA Tournament Brackets

In workplaces all over America, folks spent Thursday morning scrambling to get their NCAA tournament brackets filled out before it was too late.

Not so at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. That’s because employees at ESPN — which had been promoting its bracket challenge front and center on its website — are banned from any bracket activity while at work.

ESPN’s ban stems from an incident a few years ago, in which an official from one of the schools in the tournament saw an ESPN employee’s bracket, and wondered if what teams ESPN employees were picking could influence ESPN’s coverage of the event.
