I have been vocal before about the automatically playing Sonic Video Highlights widget on the sidebar. Am I the only person who's seen a significant increase in loading time since we got that thing? Anyways, people seemed to like it during the season, so that's fine.
But now... All it does is show football "highlights" of our 1-11 season. I can't take it. If it showed basketball highlights I could live with it, and in fact if it showed highlights that were difficult to find otherwise I'd even enjoy it. But for now I see no redeeming value in the video player.
I want to know if the rest of CougCenter really likes having this thing around? Do anyone else's eyes get drawn to the only moving object on the screen, continuous replays of the Apple Cup stomping? Do people just not notice it? One aspect of good site design is not having unnecessary clutter, but if other people don't think of it as clutter I'll shut up about it forever (maybe).
