Hey Guys,

Covers have made some changes to the Home Page Menu. Main things to note:

1. Forum:  The forum section now falls under community.  All of the same menu sections are available, but you have to go to community to get the dropdown to access them all.

2. Matchups:  There is no longer a dedicated page that lists matchups, and the matchups section of the main menu is removed.  Users must go through the scoreboards to access matchups.  Any matchup links point to the scoreboard pages.

3. Free Picks:  Is no longer in the main menu.  It is under Experts only.

4. Soccer:  Has been moved under the MORE section..

Will there be NO pages of Match-ups for the daily games? Going to the scoreboard page only shows the scores of the last games- can't access Match-ups from anywhere. Lazy

I hate this.  Why?  What's the purpose?  The matchup page was convenient and easy to use.  Now it's a pain to get there.  The list also served as a convenient list of games and start times.  I don't get it.  Why make things less user friendly?  It's a worse site today than it was yesterday.  Please bring it back.

Daily Babe section has been removed. There was no point in having Matchups in various locations around the site. They can now be found on the scoreboards page where like on the old matchups page, are listed in the order that the games go off.

Let me guess. The sponsors complained about the Matchups section. Is that why it was removed? CT said "There is no longer a dedicated page that lists matchups, and the matchups section of the main menu is removed. Users must go through the scoreboards to access matchups."  Even in their description of the change CT alludes to the fact that it is LESS convenient to access the Matchups menu in the new format. Not to mention the fact that the new Matchups menu is cluttered instead of being in a convenient, easy to read list format. FYI. If it aint broke, don't break it. Please go back to the old format, at least for the Matchups menu.
