    There's a ton out there, especially when you consider the question internationally, but I was curious about website opinions. What brings you back to a particular site?

    Sound information, clips that you can view, up to date statistics, breaking news as it's happening, analysis/columns/blogs. I guess when I look at websites, I want them to be as comprehensive, informative and complete as possible.

    I was hoping for serious discussion
  5. I actually find the pages that start up the audio and video by itself (a la MLB websites) a little too much. if i want to kill my computer and slow it down, let me choose to do so rather than force me to hear/watch something i dont want to

    Baseball-Reference.com. Spend five minutes on the site, and you'll know why.

    I second that motion, and, if you're a real stat-head, must agree with mike about baseball- (and basketball-) reference.com.

    Also, if you're looking for web sites on just about everything in sports, or to read most of the major sports sections in the country on a daily basis, The Sports Hot Sheet ( http://hotsheet.50webs.com/sports.htm ) is great. I've filled my browser with bookmarks thanks to it.

    Appreciate that. One reason I was asking is I might get an opportunity with one and was looking to pick brains about what people like about websites.
    Was thinking of the AOL, ESPN mode, ones that disseminate information as a news source rather than a reference site.

    If you want to go in-depth on baseball, retrosheet.org is money, too.
