  2. Stop the Auto-play videos, AGAIN!

    You guys stopped auto-pay videos in the sports section for a few months and then the NFL season came around. Every NFL article has an auto-play video that takes forever to load and makes the page run slow. Half the time, the videos have no bearing the on the article and the other half they tell everything in the article. So either go to a video streaming news content only or stop the auto-play videos. Please stop the auto-play videos, please.

    Hello -

    We have added the ability to turn off auto-play on our videos. Please review this article – https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN25842.html – to make the change.

    Please note that this will not apply to videos provided by NFL.com at this time.

    Thanks for the feedback.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  7. Conversations - Problems

    Your "new" Conversations (replacement for Comments) section is loaded with problems . . . I guess to go along with your horrible new sports formats (it all used to be on one page . . . now it's all over the place) which are drawing much criticism.

    Biggest single complaint from users is that their posts (Comments) disappear mysteriously.

    Also, personally, I can only get the Conversations section to work on one browser (Internet Explorer) and it will not work (well or at all) on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. FYI, I am using Windows 7.

    Please feel free 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!
    Joe

  10. Get rid of auto-play videos

    Give viewers the option to click play. Forcing us to click pause every time we want to read a box score or recap is infuriating. Why would I continue to visit a site that infuriates me? In the long run, you need to decide whether it's worth it to pander to advertisers (while antagonizing readers). You're going to find it hard to sell ads with no readers, especially considering there are more reader-friendly options, like ESPN.

  12. Player Game Logs do not show rows for games that players did not play.

    It is useful to show each row even if a player did not play so that we are aware that a player missed a game. The old game logs from last season showed it this way and was much better and useful.

  14. off season keeper league trading in football. just because the regular season is over doesnt mean the fantasy world stops turning...

    off season keeper league trading in all sports. just because the regular season is over doesnt mean the fantasy world stops turning...keeper leagues are year round. with the draft, free agency, trades going on during the off season, people need to adjust and makes moves in fantasy as well.

  16. Stop the auto play videos in articles

    This morning on iPad Mini with Safari, I’ve tried to read news and sports articles, but it’s become virtually impossible because large video ads and the small news videos (side right) play automatically and it’s hard to stop them. The video ads appear repeatedly thru articles and don’t show a pause buttin for 10 seconds. The small news videos X doesn’t stop those videos and the pause doesn’t seem to show immediately. It’s not only obnoxious but counterproductive - now I just read less, click on fewer articles.

  17. Put sports on the sports page, not Obama or an actress. Today, no golf, even after a player shoots 59

    Just put sports on the sports page. Today there was nothing about a golfer shooting a 59 on the pga tour. Nothing about it but things on there like Obama going back to work and an actress looking different now than years ago. Come on Yahoo Sports

  18. Need DNPs for game logs in NBA.

    I looked up Kyrie Irving's game log, and I didnt see the distribution of DNPs. All I saw was his 59 Games played. We need those "goose-eggs" in order to how many games he missed relative to a certain time period. This is a big deal for managers.

  20. Get rid of @lajethrojenkins for using whiteface

    This Yahoo employee insults the city of indianapolis and then shows himself in Whiteface still insulting people who stick up for Indy. Opinions are fine but using race is not. Get rid of him.
