How can we improve the Yahoo Sports?

Go back to the old white screen. The new look is difficult to read.

The new screen look is too difficult to read. A plain white page is much easier on the eyes. The new colors blend together too much. Go back to the old look.

        Yahoo!'s new box scores for baseball are TERRIBLE! It's not a matter of me just having to get used to it, it's:
        1. They are difficult to read.
        2. They don't present the information in a clear, concise manner.
        3. The flash setup causes the screen to jump around randomly.
        Whatever Yahoo! paid its designers, it was too much. This site now looks like it was designed by someone with really creative ideas but no practical sense.

        New Sports page is terrible. White background was much better.

        Yahoo baseball was perfect before. Yahoo used to be so clean and easy on the eyes. just terrible now.

        I have to agree. The Sports page is truly awful. Bloated and slow to view. I actually had switched over to Yahoo's Canadian Sports web site during this NBA season as it had retained the older format. But apparently the Canadian site switched over in the past day or so, so now I am using ESPN for my sports scores.

        If this doesn't change soon I will stop using yahoo because of this stupid new design....

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please change it back. I hate to check my email now. It's hard to read, hard to find what you need, hard to delete old email. Shouldn't we have a choice in what our email screen looks like???

      • BrianBrian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's not just the format, it's the lack of navigation now on the pages. If you are a Yahoo user and you are logged in there is no menu on the top that allows you to navigate between sports. And when you eventually stumble onto a sport, you can't view the sub-nav links like view teams, standings, rankings, scores, etc....

        Why in the world would you change a perfectly good format? I will be checking out other formats if it is not changed back. And I see I am not alone.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Who is the idiot that changed the format? I can't navigate easily like I could before. I am already looking for another sports page---ESPN?---so change it back. Now.

        Take a tip from Amazon's KINDLE. Readers want and NEED black text on very white background! Are you listening????

      • AndyAndy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        There is an option for a white background, but it's still a far cry from the old GOOD format.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Whoever is doing the rearranging should get a new job! What happened to public opinion surveys before changes are made? Go back to black lettering and white background...you can't read the emails!!! I hate it.....switching to another email service, no questions.

        White on black text is, quite literally, agonizing for people with visual problems or migraines. I can't read web sites or look at blogs designed this way, and I know of many other people who have the same problem.

        Some of my Adobe software uses a dark interface with lighter text. I don't like it, but it is legible and not particularly painful because they don't use an extreme white/black contrast. It's more shades of gray. Also, the software is only designed for looking at small commands and menu items, not reading extended bodies of text in the form of comments.

        It's a basic principle of decent web design that extended texts (more than a menu button) should never be white on black. It's too difficult for *anyone* to read.

        Oh Yahoo, how I wish I could be participating in your Pro basketball leagues this year, and that I didn't have to move my own commissioned league to ESPN for the first time in 8 years. However, not only do I absolutely despise the new format, the fact that you are sticking to your new format strictly out of principle now that you have seen the tremendous backlash to your change, I refuse to play on Yahoo now out of principle. No money, no participation, and no page views from me and my leagues anymore.
