Good morning, NFC West.
Around the NFC West: July 17, 2013
For about five years we've been discussing the division in various venues, including in the comments sections attached to each blog entry. That is going to continue in a new environment beginning Wednesday as ESPN.com expands its use of the Facebook interface that debuted months ago elsewhere on the site.
News of the impending changes has stirred mixed reviews. Some have promised to leave the comments sections and never return. Others have said they hope the new setup will weed out repetitive banter between rival fans, leaving room for more meaningful conversations focused around analysis.
I'm not sure what to expect, but I do think the comments sections had become overrun to the point of diminishing the experience. Here's hoping the changes lead to more focused discussions.
