    Check out ESPN's revamped Page 2 for what Lynn Hoppes has been working on.
     
  2. Or you can tell us or provide a link.

    I actually like the old look better. But I always say that whenever a site or newspaper changes its design. So I'm sure in a few weeks I won't even notice.

    Looks just like the homepage. Not news.

    Sorry, I guess I figured most people here knew how to find ESPN's page 2.

    I can remember a half-dozen or so looks to this page since I started reading it. None really stick out more than any other. Just thought it was interesting that Hoppes name was splashed on the page in a couple of places.

    I'm just wondering how long it will take him to overhaul the staff, which I'm guessing he's dying to do.

    Did he "contribute" to the lead story there, too?
     
  8. The staff has already been overhauled. Most of the good writers escaped.

    As you can see by the way its played up on the main site, Page 2 is low on the list of priorities for ESPN.

    Does anyone else find the headline typeface really distracting?

    Outside of Forde and MacGregor, there's no one I really go to ESPN to read anymore. Yahoo's stable of columnists are much deeper and better than ESPN's. Passan, Wetzel, King, etc. are consistently fantastic. I go to Yahoo! first now, and hardly ever go to ESPN anymore.

    Plus, Yahoo!'s site is much easier to navigate.

    Went to take a look; there's two minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    I like what Fox Sports has done with their site more.

    Nice clean home page. No clutter.
