    Love the new layout. The fonts are going to take a minute to get used to as your text in some of the articles kinds of runs together based on the paragraph structures. A work in progress to a better site and it looks good and clean. Very nice guys. Looking forward to seeing articles about wins on this new layout!

    If this was the clear choice, I would hate to see the losers. This layout sucks.

    Two fifteen year-old girls with sole experience designing MySpace pages could put out something better than this.

    This design is a nightmare. I hope you can stop payment on the check.

      I disagree because you are comparing apples to oranges.

        No, actually you’re incorrect, post is correct in how it is stated. New layout is ok to me but the post makes sense

    This layout is just terrible.

    We do web design of all sort, and think you’ve been sold a bill of SEO hocus pocus baloney.

    I thought my ISP was having bandwidth problems and somehow the page was loading a bare HTML default page.

    Your old site had some life. Buc colors! Cool graphics fitting a pro team blog. You didn’t have to have one word and you knew exactly who you were.

    Now you look like the bazillion bland, forgettable old Web 2.0 pages. You might as well be selling some clickbait fake news or mouthwash or fabu celebrity gossip or something, because you sure as hell no longer look like a top NFL team site.

    Absolutely terrible and a disincentive to visit.

    What the hell happened to Pewter Report? It used to be so awesome! Now it looks like a government tract housing project.

    Get your money back!

    Why did you have to change in the first place? What was “wrong” with the old site?

    Hey congratulations! I think this is terrific and great for Pewter Report future. I was wondering what was going on when I came on Board this afternoon. I figured something new was happening so I waited for a couple hours and bingo! I really like what you have done.

    Congrats on the new site. First thing I noticed was WAY too much white. Way to bright to read. I liked all the black on the last site for that reason. Besides that not bad so far. Take some getting use too. Too bright though. 🙂

    The previous design displayed a much more professional image. It now looks like a gallon jug of milk.

    Hell, I still miss the magazine. Just like my job, some wiz kid comes up with a bright idea and I have figure shit out all over again. Give us old guys a break. Please. I will say it’s easier to post a thought though.
    But I will agree that it’s way too white. Of course I won’t abandon the site, because change is always inevitable. GO BUCS

        Hopefully we’ll get an “Edit button by 2017”.

      I never got mine to load when they changed the last website. Hopefully it will be easier to load (and it will stay there) this time around. Maybe I’ll try a new pic as well.

    No matter what you change, people will hate it because people hate change. Glad you guys are willing to try out new things and stay current.

    Really my only complaint is all the white. It hurts my eyes after a while. Had to adjust my brightness.

    Otherwise, it looks pretty sharp. That’s my snap-judgement.

    I do like the new layout. The only thing I don’t like is the white background. I prefer a darker back ground which reduces my eye strain.

    This new look is okay, kind of bland. It looks a lot like your old site before you went pewter and red. I really loved the look you just got rid of. It was very warm, and inviting and it felt like the Buccaneers ‘official’ site. I one time sent an email to the Bucs telling them they should redo their site to look like more like Pewter Reports’s site because it looked more official than theirs.

    I will get used to it, and it’s not going to change me coming here to get my Bucs news. I just hope the next time you get an itching to change your look go back to what you just had. It was one of the best looking sites I go to. It just screamed “Buccaneers” before you even read one blog.

    As long as the price remains the same I can live with anything.
    Seriously, some of the harsher critics need to check in their wallet and see how much they are paying to access this site.
    Geeeeesh.

    I for one do not like the forums or the overall look of the site. Count me as a skeptical. But I doubt I will be frequenting Pewter Report . Good luck. Wish you all well.
