    Is it me or are these websites just getting worse. The new fox sports is horrible in my opinion.

    Fox is so cluttered with grap articles and swimsuit stuff its a joke. Fox is also a little obsessed with Wayne Gretskys daughter. I swear they post non stop updates about what this gal is doing. Why? She isnt an athlete, she is just like Paris Hilton.

    Fox felt the we also wanted non stop coverage of Danica Patrick and her new boyfriend.

    ESPN drives me batshit, stopped watching sports center years ago. I just could not stand the catch phrases of the talking heads anymore. The website is a joke. Click an article and then find out that you have to sign up for something in order to read it.


    Just report Sports Guys. Its not that hard.

    My "goto" for years was always Yahoo. I've always liked their mix of coverage plus their columns (I particularly enjoy Dan Wetzel's columns there). That said, the new design is practically seizure-inducing and I find myself on Yahoo A LOT less.

    ESPN.com is a mish-mash to me. The thing I dislike most is how every page has a video that autoplays - a personal gripe.

    I was hoping Fox Sports One would give Sportscenter a run for their money but I'm not liking what I see there so far. I'll give Sportscenter a little credit for toning down all the "Booyahs!" and "Yahtzees!" lately.

    The site I find myself checking out most often is ProFootballTalk.com. No fluff and constantly updated. My only bitch with PFT is the trollers in the comment section. Other than that, I enjoy Florio's writing.

    yeah, I hate that too. Another thing I hate, it used to be, if you read a story on the MLB page, you'd see the links for the other recent stories off to the right, so you didn't have to constantly go back to the MLB page (or NFL page or whatever you were on), you could just go to the next story that interested you in that sport. Now they have all these "City" pages, so if you click on a link to a story that concerns the Red Sox, it takes you to the "Boston" page and any links are to other Boston sports stories, so if the next article you wanted to read involved the Cubs, then you have to back track to the MLB page (and then when you click on the Cubs story, you're gonna go to the "Chicago" page).

    Needs to be a multiple like for posts like this.

    NASCAR is the only sport I follow with any regularity at all and their site is horrendous. The only thing worse is their comments section that may or may not be relevant to the articles they are posted under.

    A) I already subscribe to your fucking cable channels ESPN, I need to pay to be an "Insider" to read a good chunk of your articles? Fuck you.
    B) Auto play on videos. Again. Fuck you.
    C) Most websites on the net really suck now. They are all made for people with five second attention spans, and all the damn graphics, videos and pop ups just make it damn annoying if all you want to do is read a recap of the Sunday night game you didn't stay up for.

    I gave up on nascar.com when they went to their new page layout. I go to Jayski.com for my nascar news. I have been going there since about 04-05, used to be primarily rumors and silly season stuff, but now...it's like this joint, my daily go to for anything new. When RCR announced the 3 last week, ya nascar.com had the video, but after that was over i couldnt find anything about it even happening. Straight over to Jayski and front and center was RC, Austin and the car with a nice little write up.
