This might sound like a dumb question, but will anything dynasty-related, namely tables (box scores, matchup previews, etc.), be affected by the new layout?

Also, I continue to be mystified with the eSports thing, so coverage of that is totally wasted on me. I cannot for the life of me understand how watching someone else play a videogame is fun. But, hey, to each his own.
Do you like watching sports on TV?

Watching people play video games is exactly like that for some people.

My personal opinion:
1. That image makes OS look something like a clickbait nest. Not sure why, layout just looks generic and cheap to me.

2. I always prefer articles over videos. Now more videos doesn't mean fewer articles right?

3. A little nervous with mention of e-sports.
The plan isn't to change what we're doing in text-format at all, if anything with the new CMS backend we'll have we can do more with text. But we do want to expand our multimedia offerings.

Generally just because we mention we want to do more of one thing doesn't mean we're changing what are already doing.

Ugh to the e-sports. Why anyone finds it entertaining to watch others play video games is beyond me. Reminds me of the agony that came with waiting my turn to play Super Mario Bros. as a child.

Fair enough, it is always difficult to please everyone. As long as the writing staff isn't downsized to allow for more "on-air" talent it is all good.

My concern with the e-sports is that currently OS is my go to site because its reputation is that of a sim community. The sports take precedence over the video game part. It is not as one sided as it has been in the past, but it can still be said that this site caters to the (mostly offline?) sim style community. Trying to mix in e-sports worries me because I don't think a site can successfully cater to both. If you are doing both there may come a time when you would have to chose, and the smart business decision is hands down to go with e-sports.
