What website do you use for national sports coverage?

I used to be a ESPN.com guy, but have pretty much boycotted the site (still read Simmons, Stark, free Gammons) due to their annoying and in your face ads and everything being insider premium content.

Foxsports.com, Im not a big fan of their website layout or writers.

CBSSportsline is pretty good. Almost all of my fantasy sports leagues are on CBS, so Im on there alot of times by default.

But I now find myself going to Yahoo Sports for all my national sports news, box score scavenging, and player info. Great writers, excellent layout, the ads are presented in a non annoying way (no pop ups or force minimize ads).

Used to be almost 100% ESPN....but for the same reasons (ads, everything now being Insider content, etc), I probably have split up the time in thirds between CBS, ESPN and Yahoo. I go to CBS specifically for scores and gamecast....just quicker to get to and easier to follow. I go to ESPN for recent news....and Yahoo for player info, etc.

CBS 90% of the time
CNNSI is pretty good also
Yahoo here and there
ESPN 1% of the time, too slow for me and too much garbage
