        Give us the option back for Black or White background... Please.. Too ******* the eyes.. I put in a ton of hours on this page during football season..

        There are going to be opinions either way. However, anyone who spends any time on here would prefer the black background. Light text on dark is much easier on the eyes. This decision was probably made by some exec who spent 5 minutes deciding. Meanwhile, we have to look at it if we want to manage our teams.

        Regardless, you have both of the styles now... LET US PICK OUR PREFERENCE!!!

        Please go back to the black background. The white one is straining my eyes to the point I dont want to visit the site to manage my teams any longer.

        Please change to black. I have a lot of reasons for this. But the most important is black background looks *******!! In a good way ;)

        I turned on my Fantasy page and I thought it was a police spotlight on me, change it back its horrible im getting PTSD along with my headaches

        Looking through suggestions to see if anyone found a work around, and voting up ideas, is giving me a headache from all the white.

        This is why coders use dark backgrounds and light text; Headache bad, actually being able to maintain fantasy teams good.

        Nobody that actually looks at a computer screen likes the white background. Command line...black, coders...black, fantasy sports...black.

        White is bad.

        My eyes strain easily and bright white backgrounds with dark text drive my eyes insane. I can only look at the screen for about 2 minutes before my eyes start to water. Please give us the option to change it back to the darker background. You will be doing my eyes and it seems many others eyes a favor by giving us the option.

        What a joke. Yahoo is lying about users being surveyed about changing the background to white. Look at all the different feedback entries that absolutely hate the white background. Yahoo tried this before to massive negative feedback and they try it again? Shows how little our voices matter. I'm definitely using a different site once football starts up. Yahoo are amateurs.

        Why not just have the option for it to be dark or light background. I personally prefer the dark background, as do most of my league members. c'mon man!

        I don't understand why Yahoo would force the white background on us. Why not give us the option to change between white and black like in previous years. Personally the black background was one of the only good things about Yahoo's fantasy format as it made it much easier to read especially during night. The new format looks absolutely awful and just looks like a bunch of text with barely noticeable borders. I hope Yahoo considers changing this awful background color before (or at least give us an option to change it) before the fantasy season starts as looking at the new white background is harder to navigate and to look at. Once you go black you'll never go back.

        Format last year was great, format this year is horrendous. Switching to ESPN next season if something doesn't happen between now and then.

        Hey Yahoo ... remember "New Coke?"

        Yeah ... that was a bad idea too.

        With the exception of Yahoo Mail ... I notice that this "new look" is uniform across much of Yahoo. While it may be fine for the Homepage or News, Politics, Celebrity, etc., ... it is not good for Fantasy sports. This was likely designed by web geeks who think they know a slick web look (this isn't IMO) ... but have never played Fantasy sports online.

        Without an option to switch ... it is unacceptable for Fantasy. I would bet on a large ESPN, NFL.com migration of players by late August. **** ... ever CBS Fantasy is better than this now. I'm considering taking the Yahoo league I run and pay to move it to MyFantasyLeague.com and do my own design.

        (BTW ... Please don't do this to Yahoo Mail!)

        In one word ... Sucks.

        No one likes it now fix it already, u changed it over night now change it back. If not I'm out of here for football and switching back to ESPN along with a lot of others
