There have been a lot of changes to your favorite Broncos Blog since the launch of SB Nation United. I would say some good changes and some not so good changes but I haven't really found any of the good changes.....yet.
Like most of you, I'm still tripping my way through the peach colors, cartoon horsey, blinding white pages, un-answered concerns and unfamiliar lay out but I'm trying to be patient. I'm giving the good folks at the SBNU Broncos site time to work out the kinks so to speak. And I feel bad for guys like John, KaptainKirk, Max and others that have spent so much of their valuable time and money over the years to make this (or the old MHR) the best Broncos community on the web.
Those folks that made this site so friendly, useful and informative are catching the brunt of the criticism which is not right and probably not what most of you have intended. It's just that these folks are actually within our reach so they are bearing the burden of the new and currently flawed SBNU broncos site. It has been said before and my biggest grip with the launch of the new SBNU Broncos site was the launch date it's self. I can not believe that someone actually thought that it would be a good idea to launch a new version of a sports blog during the NFL season.
The NFL is by far the most important and most followed sport in the country, meaning more visitors more hits and more exposure to advertising. New sites and upgrades are known to have their bugs so why in the world would you even risk ruining, or disrupting the NFL season for so many loyal fans? This launch could have waited until the spring of 2013. Unless of course you believe the Myans and wanted to make sure that your new and improved site was online for at least three months. Then I could understand rushing the "up grades" onto the site.
We are hearing from them and others that things will get better in the near future but how long is it really going to take and how long are you willing to wait for those corrections to be made? Will the "changes" even satisfy you?
I have heard that several of you are now either leaving the SBNU Broncos site for good, limiting your visits to the site, willing to start your own Broncos community radio show, going to Broncos Planet, Bronco Talk, MSM, moving on to IAOFM or back to the DP. I'm curious what the majority of you are going to do to satisfy your appetite for Broncos information and Broncos Brotherhood. Maybe you can suggest a site that you like better than the new SBNU Broncos site or maybe you will be starting up a site similar to the old MHR that we should all know about. Or maybe you too will be patient and suffer through this mess in hopes that it will be made better one day soon. Tell us what your plans are.
