New look Yahoo Sports is freaking horrible

Postby sportsaddict » Thu Feb 01, 2007 5:37 pm

I rely on Yahoo sports for all of my scores and sports news, etc. One of the greatest things about it was how simple it was and easy to navigate. Well now they have completely redone it and it looks like crap. Its like when they redid the fantasy sports stuff, and tried to make it more complex. Simple is good, Yahoo! Don't change anything, its not making anything better. :-t

They did royally eff this up. :-t

I think they made it more flash-like and colorful. I personally liked the simple setup, and I could find everything with no problem and without the frills.

Last night I went to watch a hockey game on there, and I had to download Flash Player and set it to 1200 kB bandwith because I couldn't even see the puck on 720 kB. Before the switch, I had no problems whatsoever. Boo to Yahoo. :-[

I just went and checked it out... yuck. I suppose I'll have to get used to it because it's unlikely it will change back. :-t

Is this a permanent change or what? I mean everything is displaced and the photos are so big they take up nearly the entire page. It's impossible to navigate. I hope they change back.

Its basically Yahoo!'s version of ESPN.com. Go back to the classic look.

I agree, I don't like it one bit. But it's probably more because it's new. We'll get used to it. :-D

Many people complain about Yahoos sites being too busy and disorginized and I tend to agree. Sometimes it can take you a minute+ to find what you're looking for. I wasn't surprised when they reported shares were down last year.

Sure looks that way, don't it?

How do things like this impress (allegedly) intelligent people as being good ideas?

Another :-t from me.
