  1. More Freedom in the first week of the season

    It is not fair to restrict the "adds" for the first week of the season if the week is going to last 11 days!!! Guys that are INACTIVE, on the IR, or just pieces of ****, should be eligible for replacement to help us build our teams for the season...SIX adds per week are OK for the rest of the season, but either make the first week JUST Thursday to Sunday rather than 11 days, OR give us unrestricted ability to fine tune out team during that formative week.

  2. WHERE DID THE "TEAMS" PAGES GO????? CLICKING ON AN NCAA FOOTBALL TEAM NOW TAKES ME TO A RIVALS PAGE.... THIS SUCKS BY THE WAY.

    Where did the team pages go???? Used to be able to click on a team and get all relevant stories, conference standings, schedule and more.... NOW WHEN YOU CLICK ON THE TEAM (NCAA FOOTBALL) IT GOES TO RIVALS.COM..... RIVALS SUCKS FOR INFORMATION.... GREAT FOR RECRUITING... What, did yahoo buy rivals and decided to force feed it to everybody.????? **** poor.

    Hey Byrne, thanks very much for your feedback! We made a product decision to redirect users from the Yahoo Sports college team pages to the corresponding Rivals page. What specific info do you miss from the old team pages? We can look into getting it added to the Rivals pages!

    Thanks for being a Yahoo Sports user!

  3. Batter vs. Pitcher - Freeze the stat category line at the top of the page

    On the "Batter vs. Pitcher" section of a player's page, when you scroll down, the stat categories should stay at the top of the page. Currently, when you scroll down, you see a bunch of numbers without being able to tell what they mean (i.e. AB, H, 2B, 3B, etc.)

  4. Allow me to set the Box Score of each game as the default view when I look at Yahoo! Scores page

    I'm only interested in box scores when I check the scores page. It's infuriating to have to select box score everytime I switch to a different game. I want box score view to be a default or allow me to set it as my default view. Those other views, "pitch-by-pitch", "comments" etc. are pretty useless. Additionally make navigation between games easier. The location as large tiles on the right side of the screen is a terrible layout. The games used to be posted at the very top of the page and all the games were easily viewable and didn't require…

  5. Loose the small video clips that block the box scores.

    Why put a duplicate smaller video box on the right blocking the box scores. Who comes up with this ****? They should be shown the door!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Listen to, and actually ACT on the feedback in a very timely manner

    It's obvious from all the feedback that users are dissatisfied with the changes. Many share the same concerns (i.e. click to read more, automatic video playback, need to search/scroll for scores and box scores, mixing irrelevant sponsored content with sports content (on the sports page).
    Will the feedback actually be listened to and acted upon? If so, when can we expect the "new and improved" yahoo sports based on users feedback? Thanks!

  8. Remove GIF option from sports comments!!

    You get a vote from me for BANNING GIFs, and from just about everyone (other than trolls) who uses the sports comment boards. We should not have to be subjected to uncensored sexually explicit, homophobic, and just plain grotesque images when trying to follow and comment on our favorite teams. MUTE alone is NOT a viable solution.

    There are a small number of posters who are abusive and repeatedly violate Yahoo's Terms of Use. We know that Yahoo knows who these people are, along with all their multiple identities and aliases. We notice when they are repeatedly temporarily banned, but…

  9. Get rid of all the fantasy sports ****!!!

    I know fantasy sports leagues are popular but I have zero interest. At least give us an option.

  10. Add a hockey playoff bracket

    I do a hockey playoff bracket pool every year on nhl.com but I lose people because they have difficulty signing in. Almost all them have a yahoo fantasy football league so they all already have a yahoo id. So you just created a simple bracket for next year's playoffs that would be amazing.

  11. Allow users to turn off autoplay for video

    Please allow users to have the option of turning off autoplay of videos. If a video makes my browser hang up because it is trying to load, I will, 100% of the time, click away and won't come back to that page. I've tried ad blockers but you have been working around that haven't you Yahoo?

  12. How about an option not to show any soccer scores? For the MAJORITY of sports fans that don't give a darn about that boring sport.

    Request for a simple feature that when selected only puts the scores of the major US sports (NBA and NCAA basketball, NCAA and NFL football, MLB baseball, NHL hockey, PGA golf, ATP tennis, NASCAR, etc) on the header and leaves the Euro-junk off the header.

  13. USA Women's soccer

    There are soccer leagues covered everywhere but probably the most popular one in the U.S. is tough to find.

  15. Get rid of the sponsored posts!

    I know you've got to make a buck, but get rid of the sponsored posts, please! You're insulting the intelligence of your readers and doing a disservice to your writers when you mix that clickbait glurge in with your actual content. Right now you've got "Where Did Joe Pesci Go? You Won't Believe It!" above a fantasy story, an NFL video, and Jeff Passan's story on Eric Hosmer's ASG performance. And of course it's formatted so that all the "stories" appear the same, save for the "Sponsored Post" tag. It makes me MUCH less likely to keep coming back to…

    Hi all.

    There is a list of Sports across the top of the page (Sports Home, Fantasy, NFL, etc..) and at the end are three dots that provide access to additional Sports. Please respond to this message if this does not solve the issue.

    Thanks!

  18. Box score should be the priority

    The new way to display active MLB games is less than ideal. The default should be the box score. I liked it better when the play by play was just another column to the right of the box score. I definitely do not need to see the tweets of writers during the game. Those tweets tend to be "I better say something", but that something is not very interesting or informative.

  19. Liked having all of the scores for the day across the top. That is why I would go to the page

    Put the scores for all games of the day across the top. I don't go to the page to read about trivia, I want to see the scores, quickly and easily with no scroll. As everyone else has said below, it wasn't broken so WHY do you waste time and money changing it?
