    I've been using ESPN.com on my IPad for months now, but all of the sudden I cannot get to the site. I can get to the choose which site (full or mobile) page, but when I choose full, it just redirects me back to the choose page. If I select Remember my Choice it redirects between 3 sites but never loads anything.

    I've cleared my cache, cookies and history in Safari. I even restored my IPad with no luck.

    I'm extremely frustrated. Any help or direction would be very appreciated.

    Worked for me as well.

    What address is in the address bar when it is done loading.

    Do you have "Accept Cookies" on either "From Visited" or "Always"?

    I have Accept Cookies as From visited.

    When I try to pull up espn.go.com it always redirects to m.espn.go.com/wireless/choose

    I've tried to get to the espn site a few different ways. Espn.com, espn.go.com, www ESPN.com. They all forward to m.espn.go.com/wireless/choose. From there, when I select the main site, it just redirects me back to m.espn.go.com/wireless/choose.

    I had this problem for a few days with collegehumor.com.

    It didn't get solved until I posted on their Facebook page about it. A couple of hours later, it was fixed.

    It appeared to be a problem with their splash page, same as the one the OP was having.

    This doesn't appear to be a problem with ESPN since many other users don't experience the problem. I'm out of ideas on how to resolve this.

    I figured out a work around...

    I restored my Ipad again, but this time used a different name. ESPN appears to work as expected.

    Hope this helps someone else.
