Unimportant boxes every where, and clicking too many tabs to get info that used to be on one page. Its way too busy. Technology is suppose to make things easier not more complicated. We have had a league there for 7 years, and if they would have advertised that they were going to mess up the site, we would have gone to yahoo in a minute.

I like the "crappy inane league banner", but even if one wanted to move it or anything else around it seems that CBS got rid of the customizable view. They should bring that back.

I'd also like to see the Expert Advice tab in quotes. CBS "Expert Advice."

They made the transactions significantly more difficult/timely to scroll through (though you can still access the old style via the link in the upper left).

They got rid of customization.

It's like they never did any testing - there are so many bugs. I get that their motives were probably good, but man...they messed up the design and the rollout. At least keep the old style live for a season while they wrestle with this new style?

And bring back the message board!

And stop using the word "smack" all over the place!

The new layout is jarring

They keep monkeying with it but what was wrong before..if it aint broke.,

Been with cbs 8yrs --this will be the last. How assinine--add/drop is here next guys add/drop over there--waiver pickup down here. We have divisions in our league --standings for only one div show on front page. Its just so freaking "scattered"

I dont use cbs for fantasy news and anyone who does will be a day late and a dollar short! I also mostly ignore their fantasy experts as im sure most do. We use the site to run our league --thats it!

At our draft this year I told all we were raising each owners entry fee to $170 next year because I fully expected CBS to raise the price -im sure thats what was behind this --change = reason to charge more. Well don't try it cbs you better cut price or we are gone.

The "Genie" must be smiling!

Eh, I feel as if any time a website is switched up, people complain, then become perfectly fine with it within a few weeks. Yeah, it's a little awkward right now, but that's what I thought last time they switched it around. I'm sure we'll all become comfortable with it, then get upset when they change it again in a few years... :-b

Of course when there is change people complain --however they really screwed the pooch this time. I have loved all the changes they have made previously. Just think they have lost site of there place in the fantasy world. They are not Rotoworld with their updates they are not Razzball (and many other sites) with excellent fantasy analysis. Its like they are now speaking to Yahoo public league players --smack this smack that --come on we are serious players.
