Slight Problem With My Site Maybe??

Slight problem with the menu on my site. I personally don't have this problem but a couple people have noticed that at any page other then the main one they cannot get the drop down menu to work unless they go back to the main home page. It's there, they can see it, just no menu pops down.

The menu is also within a frame.

Both people are running Windows XP and are using IE 6. I don't know if it's a browser problem or a problem with the menu itself.

Works OK for me... Windows 2000 Pro, IE 6.0.26, high-speed (cable) connection.

This is not a good test because I don't have XP or IE6.0, but here's what I do have:

ME IE5.5
No navigation problems.
Looks like you have some pointer offset due to the drop-shadow effect. Easier to see than to explain. Set your drop-shadow strength to 30 and try to navigate. :D

98 IE5.0
No navigation problems.
No pointer offset problems.
The submenu for "Playoffs" is mostly covered by "Upcoming Games".
