    This could be interesting.

    Maybe it will fare better than this:

    If it's anything like their syndicated radio offering, I don't have high hopes.

    Too fair, too balanced?

    In fairness Fox only licenses out the name for Fox Sports Radio, it's run by Premiere/Clear Channel.

    The marketplace is getting awfully crowded, though, with NBC and CBS' networks as well.

    If it doesn't have Who's Now, Who's Hotter, Coors Cold Hard Facts, or feature a lot of men shouting at each other, I'm in.

    If they don't go the hip-trip route, it could make a serious challenge.

    Let's hope they get Keith Olbermann back to host their nightly highlight show!

    Fox, promise me you won't lead with a mundane NBA game on Sportscenter when other big news events have occurred and you've got me hooked.

    Nothing pisses me off more than "Yes, we know so-and-so threw a no-hitter today, but how about those Jazz-Thunder highlights?"

    Which of the 7 ESPN channels is it going to challenge?

    As long as they have a true hour-long highlights show...with ALL sports included...not just what you have under contract to show live events off.
    So sick of wanting to see NHL highlights and getting maybe one in the Top 10 every night on SC.
    Good thing there is NHL OT on NBCSN.
