Really screwed the pooch with the changes to the sports pages.
New sports pages are terrible. Where's the penalty summary on the NHL box scores? I've stopped using Yahoo News in favor of Bing and Google, guess I'll be looking for other sports pages as well.
Your mute button is broke and comments won't stick on the sports pages.
I've officially switched to CBS Sports because the Yahoo sports pages and message boards no longer work as well as they should. I'd been on Yahoo since 2001. No longer.
The latest changes are a travesty. You can no longer register dislikes, you can no longer comment in-game on the NFL.
To the powers that be at Yahoo, making changes to the site may sound like a good idea, it's not. You have managed to make the site a thousand times worse. Get those monkeys with the typewriters that wrote Shakespeare to run the site - they'd probably make a better job of it!
Trying to force an upgrade to Fixefox as my browser to see the page correctly has driven me away from Yahoo Sports
Some genius decided to drop commenting on the baseball box score pages.
In general, the sports site is so overloaded with ads, it performs like ****.
Adios, I'm going to try CBS sports.

Fix issues now. http://bit.ly/2aS1Krp
Yahoo maggots, who care less about the consumer. Melissa Mayer strikes again, the most worthless thing Yahoo has ever done. SHE IS HORRIBLE !!! If its not the home page, its the mail page or the sports page

I agree. I too quit using Yahoo for news. Then the games page went. Now I'm going somewhere else for sports. Ciao Yahoo.
Not liking the new setup for MLB. Advertisement after every highlight play and pitcher not listed for current and future games. I hope Yahoo realizes they don't have the only website available.
OK, I get it. Yahoo must make more money by forwarding people to other sites, like NBC Sports. The problem with that is reading isn't as fast and too many sites think that a site is better when it has a ton of pictures. The list of articles under a sports team has become less dense (vertical density) due to the number of irrelevant pictures.
Most of us want to read stories, not look at pictures. Video replays are nice but the pictures attached to each article just mean that each article needs more verticle space. Remove the picture and article summaries can be more dense.
Please also make the articles relevant. I can't find any of the old Warriors articles anymore by CSN Bay Area writers.
I like to read Warriors news frequently. My main problem with the old format was that I could only see about 8 articles and sometimes an article would scroll off the list before I could read it. Now, I get almost unlimited articles, but the relevance is almost zero. Most Warriors articles might mention the Warriors but they aren't relevant to the Warriors, at least not to a high degree.
In particular, I used to read almost every article written by a CSN Bay Area writer. I don't find a single one of their articles now and most articles are not primarily about the Warriors.
Also, while some may like extensive use of graphics, I like reading. I intentionally DO NOT USE espn.com because I do not like all the pictures/graphics/videos. When I go to CNN, I stop the videos and just read because I can read faster than the video plays.
If I had my way, I would leave videos but not have them play automatically. I would also have the MOST RELEVANT stories at the top, not the most recent which just mention a team. Obviously, the people working at Yahoo Sports are not sports readers or have tried too hard to bring in ads.
Ads are OK to have (I want Yahoo to continue as a company!), but make articles more relevant and reduce the gratuitous pictures.
Yahoo finally restored the sports (baseball) pages with the Comments section but their "fantasy experiment" drove most all of the real fans away. Doesn't look like they are coming back.
Don't beta test new stuff at the expense of tried and true pages that people like and are used to.

When I click on my home team, I no longer get articles primarily linked to my home team.
Game previews no longer are available.
See ya Yahoo, deleting my Yahoo account.
Go to the Yahoo - Canada version. It is still using the former version, at least for now.

Can't get to baseball box scores without jumping through hoops. and when you do you still have to scroll. Terrible navigation.
Complainers please indicate where you are headed to get an experience close to old Yahoo site.
The box score for the NBA finals is absolutely horrific!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was following box scores on yahoo for nba playoffs and now it looks like complete **** and it's doesn't even automatically refresh I have to manually refresh the page.
Pathetic, someone should seriously be fired for allowing this to go through. Why not make changes in the middles of the MLB season when no important playoff games are happening. Seriously stupid, very frustrating.
You took the best thing yahoo had going for it's self and turned into trash ... You Suck yahore ...
