Initial thoughts on ESPN's new website

Whenever stuff changes, people always complain.  That's just the way it is.  For that reason I'm going to try not to be the grumpy old man who can't handle something new and unfamiliar--I'll give myself some time to adjust to the new before I rush to any snap judgments.

However, there is one thing I feel confident in saying is definitely worse: It takes up too much space.  Below is a full screenshot of how the NBA standings from the site appear on my computer:

I couldn't even get the entire Eastern Conference to fit on the screen at once.  That's not good.

The internet is all about speed and quick access to information.  The faster I can view something, the better it is.  It's a pretty simple concept, and the same reason why I detest slideshow articles (I apologize, but Bleacher Report prefers them).
