ESPN.Com and other Web sites published by the Walt Disney Internet Group have terms of use.

The Restrictions on Use of Materials section appears to forbid users from running remix software like the Google Toolbar on their sites (emphasis mine):

Boy, I'm sure glad I never visit any Disney sites, since my browser does not and cannot render from an unmodified copy of the HTML: we have to mix it into something that will build a valid DOM, and that's what we cache.

I would report you, but I republished that quote from Disney's terms of use.

I guess that's the end of pop up blockers. and user side css.
