NHL Gets a Push on ESPN.com
It could be short-lived, but ESPN.com has redone the top of the front of their website, including the menu. I posted some thoughts about it over on my general blog, but thought I’d post here to point out that the NHL has “gained position”.
Priority generally goes from left to right on horizontal menus and somehow ESPN moved the NHL after the “big three” to actually form a grouping of what used to be known as the “four major sports”.
Somehow NASCAR and Autos were pushed to the right, which surprised me as NASCAR is returning to ESPN this year, and if the website followed the networks, you’d see it in more of a prime position.
I wonder what the reasoning behind the move was? Traffic patterns? Seasonal move? Sponsorship/partnership deal?
