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 your site to get my sports news.
Are you serious? Are you clueless? Perhaps you'd like to pay for the info you read? clueless
I miss organizing the front sports page by sport category. I have zero interest in many sports, but intense interest in others. I would like to locate "my sports" instead of scrolling through many stories given equal presentation, including ads.
How about you actually find quality sponsors? Maybe then you could drop your "sponsored" garbage. Lindsey Lohan? What Joni looks like now? What rock did you people crawl out from under?

How ****** can Yahoo make their website? I went to Yahoo MLB & saw ads, ads, ads, ads & a NBA story. Can Yahoo put baseball on Yahoo MLB?
Put the boxscores in a convenient spot. I have to scroll down a ways just to see the scores. And when I do, a pop-up blocks the scores.
the ads are mixed between the articles...great camoflauge, not ...
are most of your articles now, from other sports' websites ??? and no ability
to comment, or lesser ...seems like before, articles i read on yahooNBA i
could comment on, without joining another website ??
Way too many ads. this is not a fun read.

My.yahoo.com and Yahoo! * were all the best on the web 5+ years ago. They were compact, easy to navigate and all the info you wanted was at your finger tips. Now you have to go to multiple pages to get your information and it is often very difficult to find. And now you changed them again and it is even harder. In addition, you have way to many ad's to scroll through, "sponsored articles" intermixed with real articles that are incredibly distracting and make it hard to read your pages, and these extremely annoying floating video windows that you have to "X" out of every single time you go to the page. Go back to allowing me to configure my.yahoo.com and yahoo! sports to have everything I want on one page and east to get to. This is what you had 5+ years ago and it was 1000% better than what you have now

The new format stinks all the way around. Virus laden links, no ability to comment, no current articles of my favorites with my favorites. Bad ideas made worse by implementing them, breaking what wasn't broke. Describes the current Yahoo format perfectly.
Curate the sponsored stories. Actually get out there and hire people to write things that are interesting/serve brands. Slap a sponsored link on it and post fewer of them. That will enable you to get around ad blockers etc.
Fire whoever designed this mess. Its clunky. It has more ads than articles. The videos auto start when i should have the choice. Theres no order to anything. Plus the mobile site is 1000 times worse. Im going to espn, sad cause ive been yahoo since the beginning.

Mixing thinly disguised ads with articles... unrelated items on pages.... terrible comments feature.... clicking MORE, going to third party sites, gossip content.... it goes on and on. And it goes from bad to worse. Yahoo is out for me.
