where to get me news

Postby phatjimmy » Fri Jun 06, 2003 5:16 pm

My office just got hosed by the computer guys. I can't access ESPN, CBSsportsline, Foxsports, MLB.com, Yahoo (where i have my teams,) and my go-to site, Rotoworld. Where else can I get up-to-the minute news like I get from Rotoworld?

Help please.

Aye Laddie, you're in a bit of a conumdrum... Sorry, no help here, I just wanted to post something starting with an Irish (or Scottish depending on where you're from) accent :-D

When I got kicked off a certain Packer Forum, I would use this site's link to get around their block. It's a football site, but it has many links to general fantasy sites.

I think it has something to do with hitting ESPN or wherever thru a different server.

Thanks, Groundhog.

That's blocked, too. What horse%#. Clearly, I need a new job. And I've got Vlad. What an awful week.

Try http://www.rototimes.com

Or if you work has some crappy blocking program, try searching for the site on google and instead of clicking the link, click on the word "cache" beside it if you've been to the site before.

If you can't even get yahoo, I doubt you'll be able to access the following:

Maybe you have to change your strategy, and have the news delivered to you?

I think many of these sites offer e-mail news updates. Maybe your last resort if they have put the clamps down.

Eventually they will see the e-mail's being delivered and block them too.

Another thing to try would be a wire service, like AP.
