Welcome to the new CSNPhilly.com

We're very pleased to be able to welcome you to the newly redesigned CSNPhilly.com.  In the four years since our last redesign, many changes have occurred in the way online media is consumed, and as a result we felt the need to adapt to your reading and viewing habits. It is our genuine hope at CSN that these changes will lead to an improved user experience for you, our loyal fans.
 
Don’t worry though, we haven’t changed the core of what we do — just how we package it. On CSNPhilly.com you’ll still get the best sports coverage in the region from Insiders Jim Salisbury (Phillies), Reuben Frank (Eagles), Tim Panaccio (Flyers) and Jessica Camerato (Sixers), alongside insightful columns from John Gonzalez. Unique content from The700Level.com will continue to remain a focus, as will digital original videos.
 
In addition, video from our on-air award winning anchors/reporters and in-game broadcasters will be easier to find alongside game highlights and analysis. As always, you’ll still be able to live stream TCN’s morning show, Breakfast on Broad.
 
This new experience, consistent with our sister site NBCSports.com, focuses on an overall better user experience. We wanted to acknowledge that in today’s world, sports content is consumed quicker than ever thanks to mobile devices and tablets, and as a result we made other changes that you’ll notice, including:
 
• Responsive design: The site now adjusts to the device you’re using, whether it's a laptop, tablet or phone. This provides the best possible viewing and interactive experience possible.
 
• Infinite scroll: Finish reading a story, and you’ll immediately see another story underneath it. It's now much easier to access related articles.
 
• Easier access to video: We are a TV station after all, and now our Emmy-award winning video content is more effectively organized and displayed throughout the site.
 
We recognize change may take time to get used to, and we promise we’ll continuously work to improve the site based on your feedback. I’d encourage you to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or by emailing us at askcsn@comcastsportsnet.com.
 
On behalf of Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, thank you for being an avid viewer and reader, and we hope you’ll enjoy our new site.

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father?
 
This weekend, CSN made its broadcast debut in the world of eSports by hosting one of the regionals in the $100,000 2v2 Universal Open Rocket League tournament and a tremendous storyline emerged as one player’s dad, who had never played Rocket League before, had to sub in and actually scored a goal!
 
Josh “JumpOnStuff” Russo learned last night that his teammate, who he had been training with, could not make it to the event, but he tweeted this morning that he had a surprise replacement.

Little did we know, it would be his dad, who had never played Rocket League before.
 
After struggling initially, Nick Russo, who affectionately was known as Dad throughout the game, backed his way into the ball for the lone goal late in a 4-1 loss in their first game together. When he scored, the viewers went nuts

Despite the loss, this is a moment Nick and his son will never forget.
 
"One of the best father-son experiences I've ever had," Dad said. “"I've done a lot of pretty crazy things in my life and this is definitely one of them."

Coverage of the Universal Open continues Saturday night on CSN at 6:30 p.m.
