It's handy that it's integrated with YIM and Y! email and Y! Groups.


Why would you want YIM and Y email when you should have aim and hotmail already. ;-D


because AIM and hotmail suck.

Yeah I just saw this message on basketball about the site upgrade. I suspect the fantasy site is going to look more like the main Yahoo Sports page now.

Honestly though, they'll be doing a HUGE disservice if they revamp things to include bigger images and have all sorts of bells and whistles like ESPN. ESPN's fantasy page has to be the most unnavigable user-unfriendly site of them all.

Exactly. There are a lot of things that Yahoo! could do to actually improve their fantasy sports product, but making it "prettier" isn't one of them-- especially if the changes are the equivalent of

I'm assuming it's going to look like the main yahoo sports page. I really don't know why they don't just keep it the same. :-[

Yeah, why fix it if it's not broken. It was so easy a caveman could do it! :-°

Jokes aside, hopefully it won't be more of a hassle to get around in that site.

Hmm. Im thinking of their upgrade of stattracker last year to pretty it up and make it more unwieldy. I hope Im wrong, but that was mostly flash over substance, and I hope this isnt the same. I'm indifferent to the changes to Yahoo sports, so maybe it wont be so bad.

Me I like the way that Yahoo fantasy works. I'd like to see changes, but IMO it works well.
