ACK!
That kinda sucks. But I'm over it.

Oh well. Soon everything will be MSN anyway.

Disney... Microsoft... Eisner... Gates... is this that big of a difference?

I'm ready to give in. Get me a job at a MS owned company, live in a MS community, shop at MS stores, drive a MS car (oops - reboot!)

I guess MSN will try anything to continue to be "MSN®, the most popular Internet destination in the world."

I think I went there once after a browser upgrade, but it was by accident.

Drew, when's FARK.com jumping on the msn band wagon?

Ah hell, soon the internet is going to be all coke/pepsi challenge anyway. "Which flavor do you like your internet in: AOL or MSN?"

I'm pissed about the whole thing. espn was one of my favorite pages. Now it's going to be nothing but a giant MSN add. Content and quality stripped for advertisments and links to msn.

fark microsoft, fark msn.

Christ on a crutch, could they squeeze any more adspace onto the page? It was bad enough before, but now the crap ratio makes ESPN's site a "don't bother" affair.

this sucks. checking out the site today - less content and slower page-loads.
 
2001-09-06 09:12:13 PM  
Great, What's next - the XPFL?

Why the hell can't ESPN host their own damn site, like the rest of the world does?

ESPN rocks. It is quality programming and was a quality website. You can barely navigate it anymore due to all the msn ads.
