    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."

    I find more insightful text in the book The Gas We Pass.

    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.

    Someone should photoshop the name of the author to John McLain & Anna Megan .... and send it to the Crapical's editors.

    If they put the articles in there, you will not buy the paper.

    Their actual sales is .... next to nothing. They are attempting to stay alive online , the slideshows generate clicks which is the name of the game in internet advertisement.

    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.

    If they're going to do that, it needs to be cheerleaders.

    I love TC's blog and articles but I've quit reading even them because of that annoying crap at the bottom that you can't MAKE GO AWAY! It annoys the hell outta me and now it don't. Because I quit even going there.

    And besides which, I hate those stupid videos that start sounding off through my speakers. I just wanted to read something, not listen to someone else's horse****.
