Hi folks. I work in yahoo fantasy sports. And no, I do not control the new design. But I can tell you that Yahoo is listening to customer feedback and I think the design will improve over time. One thing you might try in the meantime to improve readability is blocking the background image. There are a variety of Firefox, Safari, and Chrome extensions you could use to do this.

Hey now. You work for Yahoo and post on RGM? I can't imagine you much of a social life after getting that done. :-D

Tell me more about these 'extensions' though. Pretend I have no idea what you're talking about. (I don't :-b )

There really is a variety of stuff out there that will do the job. For instance, websearching for "Firefox block image" turned up this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... r-jetpack/

I haven't tried it but it sounds like it could be used to do the task.

Chrome fix: download the Chrome extension called 'AdBlock'. Once installed, do the following...

1) Click on the 'Adblock' button, then click on 'Options'.

2) Once in the 'Options' screen, click on the 'Customize' tab. Next to the 'Manually edit your filters' section, click on the 'Edit' button. Add the following URLs to the filters, then click 'Save'. The background images of both Yahoo!'s fantasy football and fantasy basketball sites will be blocked.

Here are the URLs just so you don't have to type them in one by one:

If you haven't noticed, as of today you have an option to have either light text on a dark background, or dark text on a light background. You can set this from your Edit Team Settings page. I personally think this is a smart decision on their part. Hope this helps...
