CT,

I'm not sure what it'll take to get it done but I'd like to petition you guys to go back to the old format for the matchup pages for the sport websites.

The new format is difficult to read, seems to have organization issues, doesn't list the opening spread and total, and is a step back from the old format.

Please share your thoughts on this issue.

Is there a proper way to present this for changes back to the old way?

The new format is just too incoherent.

I agree , in the nba it is hard to tell  what the spread was
 and if the game went in to overtime

In MLB there was a feature in the past I really liked. It showed how teams tended to do in first, second, third and even 4th game of a series depending on if they were off a win or lose.  Very good feature and a real loss.

Maybe you could look into bringing back some of the features others have mentioned...but I actually think the new matchup pages are great...lot's of info and all the features I used are still there.

Are we ever going to get any positive response to these requests, or in returning the Series Game Records?

It was stated 2x in this thread that the suggestions would be considered. 

We've passed on the suggestions to the people who make these decisions for Covers.com.

You guys can't even fill a request by someone to be cursed out!

Kidding of course ....  Maybe over the ASB they can get these issues resolved. For right now I'm using Sports Direct's [your company I know] matchup pages in the Chi Tribune. It's just easier on the eyes, and the Series Game Records are still there. The MAJOR disadvantage with that is you can only get info/results from 2012.

Still going blind from these matchup pages and now that Football is approaching I'm hoping another push by the posters will convince the powers that be that this format is a downgrade from the old one. C'mon Covers, help us out!

Hey I'm glad you guys listen. Thanks for now ruining the Football matchup pages and making them cause blindness as well. Have you ever heard the phrase, "If it ain't broke?"

I don't have much of a gripe about the new format but this weekends games are all outta whack for me at the moment. They're not matching up with the game, as when I click on SC @ Vandy matchup it gives me EM @ Balls.
