Think of the header and footer as the bun, everything else is stacked neatly in between, that's the hamburger

A mobile version with that UI would be nice. I really like the look of Windows 8 phones.

There is very little breathing room, the gutters are tiny and everything else is HUGE. I will agree that the site is better in all three aspects I mentioned, but it is nowhere near optimal. I could go on and on, but I'll end it there, not like I would ever want to be an art director for the RDS account.

Also, releasing their site as a BETA is a complete marketing failure IMO. I don't know any designers who like to deal with a backseat design committee, imagine if that committee is Québec sports fans at large... Wouldn't wanna be working on this project and I most certainly wouldn't wanna witness the results.
We all know they are logical, rational and emotionally stable people. No problems there.

Looks (and probably was the intention) designed to appeal to tablet users.

Not a big fan. But not surprised they went this way.

It look like one of those clunky Windows 8/Metro UI/IE 10 compatible sites so yeah those who said that it look like it was designed for tablets you may not be far off the mark. Colors are also pretty grim but then again it's still in beta so some things may/will probably be changed before the final version , especially if there are a lot of negative feedbacks.

But even though i just wrote a paragraph about it i don't really care to be honest as i rarely visit RDS.ca as i normally roll with TSN.ca instead.

Twitter is probably better to get all the news and scoop pretty fast but i don't have an account nor am i into the whole Twitter frenzy. I may eventually check it out a bit more though.

Anyway when i want hockey news i actually come here on HFBoards before visiting any other sites. People are pretty freaking fast to post a breaking news story around here.

It's true. I think there is a usual time of 0.5 seconds before something gets posted here on the board after it was tweeted.

If it's clunky, then it's not really Metro. It's not because you have large sans serif fonts with rectangular shapes that it's metro. Or else, Google design style would also be metro.

Anyway, I'm no designer.

Looks like it was designed by a team of marketing guys who had 5 mins to come up with something

Yeah it's just a matter of getting used to the subtle shading of things like there's a little grey camera in the corner for videos.. Only thing that bugs me is it seems to be not very reactive to scrolling but could be my comp here.

It's crap design, they made the fonts so big my great grandmother could read them if she was still alive. Too many clicks spent on reaching the information I could get with only 1 previously.

I'm gonna be reading tsn.ca for a while.

.. I also hate fixed bottom bars.

Still not fluid and still not made for phones/tablets.

They should've hired me 2 years ago.
