YES!!! IF the "old style" is good enough for your USA Today contract, it should be good enough for Covers itself. NO "Last 5" on away vs home stats AND no goalie info makes the new format about useless

I also notice you did NOT change the format for NBA or NCAAB matchup pages. WHAT? are the NHL bettors the "lab rats" for this "experiment"? IF SO, I would say FAIL

Admittedly, it is very difficult to cap using the new format. The moment you click on one thing, another thing closes. Lipps, LeRinkRat and I (and many others) have relied on these pages for so long. PLEASE revert back.

Newer is not always better.

well there you have it, Covers-Team. the two Linesmen that basically RUN the NHL betting forum do NOT like the "new format" and want to go back to the old one.
 
operative phrase here is weeble's "Newer is not always better"
 
everyone makes MISTAKES. the sign of a good manager is to first ADMIT it and second CORRECT it.

well after getting THIS E-mail response from support@ coversmedia.com to an inquiry as to WHY they changed the NHL Matchups format AND pointing out the problems, I don't hold out much hope for them to change back.

Hi CeturyLink Customer

Firstly we would like to apologise in relation to our previous response.

This is an update that we felt was needed and the NHL was the sport to start with.

And so an update to the NHL Match up Pages we felt was needed.

Also all feedback is taken seriously and will be taken into account when we review the new format after a proper trial period.

Once again our sincere apologies for any inconvenience that may have been caused.

For any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Covers Support Team

sounds to me like these birds have "dug in their heels" and DON'T want to admit they FUCKED UP!!!

well you are obviously NOT paying attention to the Covers Members because there have been NUMEROUS complaints about the new format with excellent reasons WHY they DON'T like it.

when you have two of the MOST RESPECTED Covers Linesman saying that maybe you should re-think the decision, a SMART management takes notice.

Rat,

They are giving you a strong hint here..the help forum isnt for bashing or complaining.

You guys can talk about it in the hockey section, that is better for you and all involved.

It takes me double the time to cap a game using this format it's really annoying. Hoping to see some tweaks at least.

I sure hope that NHL is the only sport that has this switch. I could only imagine the complaints on the much bigger marketed sports...

So even if the vast majority of users think the new system is awful it doesnt matter?  It would seem that we would be who Covers is trying to make happy.

Hey Guys,

Of course all feedback is welcome, but we dont need more threads or bashing in the help forum. Lippsman has already mentioned he is handling it in the backchannels and is has been putting forward your feelings and feedback to the changes.

the product folks have reviewed all of the feedback - and are making the adjustments as per the covers members request - they hope to launch these in the next week.

This feedback was helpful guys - and will be incorporated in each of the sports as they launch.

Thanks

checkout the covers hockey matchups on the USA Today site.
The format is very similar to the old one on covers...
I find the old format much easier to use

It's not a quick fix. 

As Billy said above, they are "making adjustments" which tells me they are not going back to the old style but they are making useful adjustments to the new style.

It has to go through the design team and then get implemented through IT.  I'm sure you'll see some changes this week.
