yahoo, please change back to the way it was. I absolutely HATE the new design. players pages are way too hard to read. please use black numbers/letters on white background, period, that's it.

Another YahooLOL:

I just tried to add Nolasco in one of my leagues to replace Harvey who I just DL'd, and got the following error:
" You cannot add this player because Matt Harvey is in a DL spot and is no longer DL eligible"

Really? Is the DL that difficult to manage?

Please yahoo.... Your fantasy leagues are my favorite thing in the world. But for someone who's slightly colorblind, I cannot read the stats on player pages anymore with the new setup. Please find a way to go back to dark writing on white. Its maddening having to search every single player on baseball-reference everytime i want to see a player page just because they still have black writing on a white background. The new layout looks nice, but it is nearly impossible to read. Please help.

UGH.

teams schedule page is all *---------- up too! where is the grid that looks like an actual calendar?!

damn yahoo! could you make anything else worse or is this it!?

*mod edit - you know better

I actually edited what I originally wrote which had more swearing, so what I used there now is less. this is the proper swearing for the absolute garbage that yahoo is doing. this is ridiculous and needs to be changed ASAP. sometimes cursing and swearing is needed to get the point across.

I'm continuing to find things wrong with the new yahoo player pages.
you used to be able to search a players statistics batter vs pitcher for their total career. now you can only search for each specific season, no option for "career". what was that changed?

it's a shame when you have to go to another site's players page to look up statistics instead of yahoo.

http://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/20615 ... y-football
So Yahoo opened a forum for feedback on the new football redesign (which is equally terrible and share many of the same "upgrades" as baseball) and this is their response:

We are going to close this post and ask if there are specific areas for improvement, please submit a new topic. While we will not be going back to the old format, we will be focusing on improving the readability of the pages, along with other improvements.
We appreciate how passionate you are about Fantasy Football and welcome your comments.
Thanks,
Yahoo! Fantasy Sports


So basically Yahoo asks us what its users want, everyone tells them to go back to the old design becasue it was 100x better and the new design is awful, and they respond by shutting down the thread? Awesome!
