Aol Sports section is a part of the Aol.com website. Unfortunately, there isn’t much history as to when it became focused on sports as well. It’s interesting to note that during the 90's, Aol was a giant and now they have lost their entire market. They tried rebranding after some time but they failed spectacularly and as of 2015 they are owned by Oath Inc.
Aol Sports gives you that nostalgic feeling that websites used to have 10 years ago when everything was a lot more simpler and the colors aren’t complicated and in general it’s easy on the eyes. For a guy like me that doesn’t care much about the strong colors that some websites offer, this one for sure looks great. For the sports section, there is news mostly about the NFL and MLB. They keep up with the latest scores of NFL and MLB. They also have an app that you can download and watch NFL games on your phone.
Now since we’re done talking about the good stuff, let’s address the elephant in the room. This website doesn’t have many features, it looks like it was made in 2008 and never managed to move on. Besides the scores of MLB and NFL and some news, it doesn’t offer much. It has no videos where you can see any highlights or interviews or anything sports related. The website doesn’t offer any analytical articles or blogs that may give an insight into these two leagues. Even some of the articles that are posted on Aol are taken from Yahoo Sports, this comes as a result of Yahoo and Aol being both bought from Oath Inc. which is a subsidiary of Verizon Communications.
This website has little to nothing to offer, the design is old, the visuals are okay at best and the only cool thing are the colors which are kept classy and professional. If you are looking to learn more about sports in general, you don’t want to go to Aol Sports, because you will find little to nothing over there and you will only find articles about NFL and MLB, most of them coming from Yahoo Sports. So, if you’re going to read articles from Yahoo Sports, then why not just simply go to Yahoo Sports.
I can’t recommend this website under any circumstances, it’s simply not professional and it has nothing interesting to offer.
