Sharepoint 2007 Page Viewer Webpart

I have a Sharepoint 2007 server that works great with everything I need it too, however I'm looking to create a Fantasy Football site on it as well.

We currently use Yahoo Fantasy Football to keep all of our history however the Smack Talk section and the inability to load video and pictures, etc... makes it not too much fun. So that is why I'm creating the SharePoint site so that you can use the discussion board and other webparts to make it more appealing.

However I would like it to be a one stop shop for all the Leagues users, so I wanted to add the link to the Yahoo Fantasy football page and use Page Viewer Webpart to pull that website in.

It works for NFL.com and other sites but it will not pull in Yahoo.com or the actual link of their Fantasy Football page. It gives me a screen that says "This content cannot be displayed in a frame"

I've searched everywhere trying to find an answer but having no luck, is there anything you all can think of or how to get around this?

Let me know and thanks for all your help

Hi,
Yahoo sets a http header flag named X-Frame-Options to "SAMEORIGIN". Therefore you get the built-in IE error message that the original sender does not allow iframing.
And AFAIK the only solution would be to have some server-side processing to grab the response and transform it with a different header.

I contacted Yahoo regarding this and they might allow me to use the Frame option to embed it into my sharepoint site.

Thanks for your help
