ESPN site fails to load properly with shields on

Description of the issue:
Navigation to with shields on causes much of the site to load yet freeze the user from using the scrollbar or tab functions, thereby locking the user on a section of the page indefinitely. After some time, the desktop device’s fan starts and doesn’t finish until the user closes the browser/tab with the site or changes the shields to off.

Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

It worked initially, but they changed the script name slightly. I’ve made my change a little more generic.
