I clicked into ESPN's website earlier today for the first time in a year or more. Now I remember why I don't go there. I do not repeat click anywhere that autoplays media ads. That's where my line is drawn. I don't miss espn.

O ya, where is the drop down box or a way I can go directly to NFL scores or NCAA BBALL scores from the main page without going to the full NFL page? I haven't got used to it yet.

Most little things don't bother me, but this really has grinded my gears. I'm a ESPN.com junkie.

Maybe the Website isnt mentally handicapped, but the user that is trying to use the site?

:shrug: Just taking a guess here!

Well, the new set up to me seeems as it doesnt force somethign to play on you anymore. At least for me. Its much cleaner and i get to where i want to go without waiting for some stupid commercial to load on their media player.

There isnt one, you have to go directly to the sport first, then when you do that, you will see a link of the scores/stats or whatever it is you need.

They tweaked it, but imo its much much better now. Its much much more user and computer friendly imo.

eh--I'm with phil on this one. their autoplay is fucking annoying as shit. if I need to see a score these days, I check nfl.com.most other sports news can be gleaned from this site.

noa
01-05-2009, 07:20 PM
They autoplayed a video on my first visit but nothing since then. I think its an improvement in that regard.

What pisses me off is every damn time you open a page a video starts playing; I usually have the speakers on loud without remembering that they are on, and ESPN's fuckin' video starts blasting my ears off.

They forced an ad on me today and when I asked to skip it, they ignored me.

The redesign fixes that.

I think it's a huge improvement.

Yeah, I think that was just a welcome to our new site b.s. ad. I had the same thing too, but nothing since then.

That was to tell you they updated the website. After that, you wont get anymore. At least i havent and i have gone there about 3-4 times today.

Just went again to test it and nothing.

I haven't got used to it yet.You can't be serious. All the scores are at the top of the page and they are AJX so no waiting for the page to reload to get them.

Remember when this placed changed how it looked and everyone went bat shit nuts?

Well now everyone is used to it, just give it some time.

I've gotten to the point that I rarely bother with ESPN's site - between all the pay content shit and the automatic videos, I've had enough.

And that stupid spam Ford commercial yesterday may have been the last straw.

It's funny to see people bitch and moan after every change... I don't think ESPN is even all that different. Facebook, Yahoo, Google, LinkedIn, and now ESPN.... damn change! :shake:

Everyone complaining about videos should download switch to Firefox.

There isnt one, you have to go directly to the sport first, then when you do that, you will see a link of the scores/stats or whatever it is you need.

They tweaked it, but imo its much much better now. Its much much more user and computer friendly imo.

There's a scores bar at the top, and it looks like you can customize it.

ESPN was good like 5 years ago. Since then, it's all crap. You have to be an Insider to read anything worth a damn, and the website takes to damn long to load, with little flashy things everywhere....fuggin annoying.
