Yahoo draft interface: Ugly or Ugliest?

Seriously, could that thing look any more like it fell out of 1998? Yuck.

I dunno, it is simplistic and easy to use and that is what is important. I hate the one at ESPN and Mockdraftcentral.

Now if only Yahoo made it so pre-ranking players wasn't so obnoxious.

i kind of like yahoo. it gets the job done. i like how it has more players visible on the lists than some other places. it makes it easier to get a clear picture of things, and doesn't make you spend half your draft scrolling endlessly through a stupid 5 person list for no reason.

i wouldn't mind it being bigger like full screenable so that i can see more player names at a time. why limit the size to only take up a small portion of your monitor?

Agreed. As long as it works efficiently, I'm fine with it. And pre-ranking does suck.

I'm much more concerned with functionality than appearance. I agree with Ender, though, on the pain in the butt that is ranking players in Yahoo!

also i wouldn't mind if they put positions next to the player names so i can actually spot the multi-position guys.

Yeah, what's with the two-inch margins on each side?

i think espn's is pretty much idiot proof. probably why i like it. ;-D ...easy to build a watch list and sort by position. cbs is a f'n disaster, and yahoo's is kind of a mess too, IMO.

Totally agree.
I'd also like to see the pick number shown when a guy gets taken, ie 1. Alex Rodriguez, 2. Hanley, etc.
I think this would be helpful especially in the later rounds, when I'm trying to keep a cheat sheet up to date and pay some attention to ADP's so I'm not reaching too much.
