Bleacher Report does have some quality writers, but to gain complete legitimacy they should really retool things on there. Don't let just anyone post, don't make page views so important/easily views, don't make the number of comments on each article the biggest thing you see on the main page, don't make everything based off a slideshow (which is only done to increase clicks/page) and don't call yourself Bleacher Report if you're trying to get reputable.

I like the guy who does the AFC East blog, but he's covering the Patriots with media credentials. That goes against the whole "Bleacher Report" mentality, and while I think it's 100% great that they're getting the legitimacy to do that, you can't call yourself Bleacher Report anymore if you have legit writers.

My friend interned for them and he hated how everything had to be in slides. I do too. I just hate their website and layout.

The site has improved a bit in the last year or so, but it still has ways to go. I hate how they rely on slideshows for basically everything and how most of them are on a completely stupid topic like "Top 20 best mustaches" or something. I know that hits and page views are important but B/R's articles always have little substance and it annoys the hell out of me.

They had a "top 50 overrated soccer players in the world" back in February which was literally just a list of 50 soccer players who make a lot of money with captions like "he's good, but is he world class?" and "he had a good season in an okay league, will he fare well in a bigger league?" It was horrendous. There is some good stuff on there, but the bad far outweighs the good for me.
