    Am I the only one with this issue? I normally only see them at the top of the board, right above Home Daily Zone and Fan Zone, but lately I'm seeing these Google ads show up in the middle of threads in between posts, and at the bottom of threads.

    I don't know, I haven't seen a single one. Maybe some people have adware on their systems????

    For the short-term you might try Firefox just so you don't have to see them, especially for tomorrow's game....

    Other than that, I think it's some ad program. Might try running Ad-Aware or something in the meantime.

    It's only 2 ads. Sites this big have to generate revenue, it's not free to host a site, just in case you didn't know. Odds are you will get used to them in a few days and not think twice about it.

    They're Google Sponsored Links, one of the least invasive forms of advertizing. If they need the revenue, I'm glad it's these and not something that could be way more annoying.

    I love me some ads, and the bigger the better. Look at these ads, click on them, and buy. You must buy. You will buy.
