What do people think of the new look of ESPN.com?

This has nothing to do with the 49ers, but I'm curious what people think of the redesign of espn.com. I'm not sure how they did it, but the site appears to have been simplified while being overly complicated. I think part of my discomfort is just the change in general. When they switched to their last incarnation I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I grew to enjoy it just fine. I'm assuming I'll get used to this version as well.

What do I dislike about it? Well, in the previous versions, when you scrolled over a given sport (NFL, MLB, NBA, etc...) there was an automatic drop-down menu where you could click on scoreboard, standings and other assorted league information. That does not seem to exist anymore and it's kind of a pain.

What do I like about it? Well, what they do have on the front page is distinctly separated, whether it be Simmons and Reilly, the headlines, what's on ESPN today, the poll, and so forth. I could definitely get used to that.

So what do you guys think about this? I've included a poll, but I'd like to hear your substantive thoughts on it. Am I missing something that makes it more user friendly?
