Default Sorry if its been posted, but who else hates yahoo's new sports setup?

I religiously used yahoo.com/sports for all sports to flip to easily read box scores and flip from game to game. This new design is way too busy, and absolutely not user friendly. What a bad choice fixing something that wasn't broke.

So suggestions on next best thing? I like simple, clean and condensed.

I was on it briefly earlier to check scores and did not like it. Seems too many websites change just for the sake of change. Gotta keep those designers and programmers busy I guess.

The fantasy football layout is awful.

I was thinking the same thing. The new setup is dreadful. It used to be so easy. Maybe there's hope they'll change back.

I actually like it but I'm sure I'll be in the minority for now. Give it time!

SOOOOOOOOOO disgusted with it, hard to navigate and basically a mess. I can't even check mlb scores, it just shows me who's pitching.

Absolutely awful. I spent a few minutes on it yesterday. Like the OP, I was on it all the time. It was my go-to site for all the latest baseball stuff. It's just a mess now. I never did find the transactions page!

i have rarely if ever cared when websites make their perceived needed changes but this is without question the worst "upgrade" to a new platform i have ever seen. i may just not use yahoo for sports any more - it's that bad.

This ruined my morning yesterday when I saw the change. Glad I'm not the only one who hates it.

I think its pretty cool. That being said, I didn't frequent the old one, but I am not a fan of changing things so I would probably not like it had I experienced the old page.

Glad I am not alone. What I found hilarious was the comments associated to a game (when I could successfully navigate to one). They were all negative.

I reeeeeeeeally hope they turn back before the nfl regular season starts.

I only use yahoo for fantasy football and it's not terrible I guess. I was really surprised to see the design changed. I guess I'd prefer the old one, but I don't like change very much.

Hate the new layout. Hate the fantasy football layout. Used to like it. Did one league on it this year and then headed over to ESPN after that to do my next two.

Gonna be the last time I ever sign up for Fantasy with Yahoo. What a mess and harder to navigate. Kudos idiots kudos.

Go there and press CTRL+0 (zero).

EDIT: Nevermind, might not matter, looks like it's just bad tables.

If you want scores for the games or stats for the players, go to mlb.com or espn.com.

Go to Yahoo if you want article after article about a word spelled wrong on a uniform, or a ball girl that trips picking up a foul ball, or a fan with a strange or slightly amusing sign, or an umpire losing track of the count.

Awful...just awful. The "old" way was so simple, clear and easy to follow. Now it seems like they jazzed it up, for no particular reason (most likely ad $s) and it looks like an overly-busy tub of feces.

Yuck.
