They launch a new site design 2 weeks before reg season. I'm getting 404 not found when I try to get Melnick in the afternoon etc.

Un ****ing believable.

If you're going to re design and launch a mainly hockey site (that worked fine by the way), do it in August.

What a bunch of ****ing retards.

Pretty much my reaction to RDS' redesign a while ago. I guess that's the direction most of these sites are going in.

The TSN redesign is pretty ugly IMO but whatever, I'll get used to it. They had their old design for like a decade so I suppose they were due for a facelift.

At first glance... Do not like. With them losing the broadcast rights to the NHL, it may force my hand to migrate to another sports news site.

I guess I'm in the minority: I like it. Much better than the old site, which IMO was starting to look/feel very dated.

Those are responsive websites, they will adjust themselves and show great on any devices.

Get used to it.

Yes, it's called mobile first.

Great improvement over the garbage that they were stuck with for years. The font didn't even scale on the old website making it impossible to read anything on high resolution devices.

The only issue I have with the new design is that it's fixed max-width again. But I will fix it with custom CSS quick enough.

That's the only issue I have as well. How does one fix it exactly?

Edit: Oh, I guess I do have another issue – the video player appears to be the same garbage flash one they've been using for ages.

Stylebot Chrome extension and knowledge of CSS to override site's stylesheets.

Here's a quick style I threw together for tsn.ca that keeps it at 95% of the browser window.

Code:
.content-wrapper .content, .section-header, .section-header-homepage **
    max-width: 95%;
}

.byline **
    display: block;
}
Mind you, the leading article section looks bad because of the white space to the right. I'll experiment with resizing the image later and/or putting some content there.

P.S. Replace ** with an opening curly bracket as the site filters it out for some reason.

Is that seriously the new design? I was sure it was showing the mobile page by accident.

The web is quickly moving away from mobile versions of sites. From now on you will increasingly see unified versions that render nicely on any device/platform.

Just because HFBorads is stuck in the 20th century doesn't mean the rest of the internet is.

Don't get too excited. Content on that site is no longer being updated.

Definitely helps.

I added:
Code:
div **
    text-align: justify;
    text-justify: inter-word;
}

div.article-content p **
    margin-right: 26%;
}
To make the preview text for the articles below the headline article justified, and not so close to the images. [I've never messed with CSS before, which may be obvious, but this did what I wanted it to do.]

Edit: Yeah, this was clearly not the best way to do that. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.
