Default Chron Texans Slide Shows Must Stop! NOW!!

Every time I go to the Chronicles sports section there is another goofy slide show. Some of them stay for a while. Not sure why they are doing it. Not enough writers? Laziness? What? I would like to see some more actual writing and less of these ridiculous slide shows. Will definitely go elsewhere for Texans coverage.

The Chronicle sports page is on the same literary level as "Highlights for Children."

Hearst Corporation has been producing quality butt-wipe for more than a century! It was a sad day when they swallowed up the remnants of the old Houston Post. I delivered the Post on my Huffy in the Nasa area in the late 60s. It's a Clear Channel world now.

I dont mind slide shows, but when I click on an article about the Texans upcoming draft, and the first thing I see is the top Texan draft picks ever, it is annoying to have to scroll down and locate the article.

Yes, Chron.com slide shows are the Larry in Stafford of my Internet. They kill any interest in reading about something because they are just annoying and useless.
