Rivals Review, a good site overall but one of the slowest sites we have reviewed to date.
Website Review was familiar with www.rivals.com before deciding to rate it. This is one of those go-to sites for anyone who is looking for information on professional, college, and even high school sports teams. This site has a ton of information as well as interesting articles. The main landing page of Rivals is a bit busy, but easy to read. At times the advertising seems to blend in so well with the regular features that you find yourself reading it as if it were something you wanted to look at. This can get annoying.
Website Review likes how the main menu is so extensive. It has NFL, MLB, NASCAR, Boxing, Tennis, Action Sports, and everything in between. You can even get information on sports that aren’t popular in the U.S., such as cricket and rugby. Under the More tab, there are fun topics such as Rumors, Odds, and Most Emailed.
Website Review feels that one of the best features about Rivals is their blog. Some days there can be more than several blogs about a variety of topics. Some are serious in nature, while others are just downright funny. The writing is fun to read and many of the blogs are accompanied by pictures or videos. There are numerous people who blog for them and if you find one you really like, you can click on their name and it will take you to their other blogs. Rivals also lists how many blogs each contributor has written.
Just under the main menu is a Trending Now tab. This lists all of the latest popular topics people may be looking up, for example, certain athletes or spring training.
Website Review likes how the main page has a search window. This is a great feature if you’re looking to find something fast. There are also football rankings and a recruit search near the bottom of the page.
Website Review thinks all of the information available on www.rivals.com is worth the price of all the ads. For sports enthusiasts, this site can keep you busy for hours and you’ll walk away with all the latest news and information.
