NESN Unveils New Intrusive Sidebar That Takes Away From Game
NESN has made a lot of moves over the years to anger Red Sox fans trying to simply watch the baseball game. The latest move has made the games next to unbearable to watch.
On Thursday in a 9-1 loss against the New York Yankees, NESN introduced a new sidebar displaying a wide range of information mostly related to sports. It displayed stats, breaking news, and even reports from the James Comey hearing, seemingly in no particular order whatsoever.

Many fans and members of the media took to social media to voice their displeasure of the new NESN set-up. But despite the outcry from the fans, the new sidebar is likely to stick around for awhile and continue to take away from the game itself. While fan outcry might get rid of it soon, it almost certainly will not be scrapped for Friday nights game against the Detroit Tigers.
