Using my Android phone, neither Chrome or Dolphin would let me in with pop up ads taking over. They were the type that say I won a Wal Mart gift card.

I downloaded adblocker web browser to get in.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

Did it just fix itself on it's own?

Nah. I just gave up that day and installed a popup blocker which has helped.

I can understand Celtics Strong needs to make money and advertising is the best way to do it. But, these popups are totally annoying. One ad took up so much of the screen that it blocked part of the print.

Can't they post less cumbersome ads? I felt totally annoyed trying to read posts today. At least make them easy to close. Am I alone in this regard?

It’s annoying the heck out of me today

The ad is sooooo big and randomly just takes over your mobile screen while you’re reading

 Making this once great site, seem very trashy now.

Yeah the ads are really bothersome now. Timberland in particular. I can’t surf on phone because of it.

Yeah I’m about to give up using on phone too, ads giving a headache

So intrusive... bombarded with ads when scrolling, adding a reply’s a chore with pop ups
