FUEL to become Fox Sports 2… (high-def?)

NOOOOO!!! Does Dana realize how much he is limiting the ability to view fights?!  Stop putting things on FuelTV!  Why would the best MMA promotion in the world put themselves on a NON-HD network.  Only HD for Direct TV  is bullshit and not OK for EVRERYONE else.   Every time a card shows up on FuelTV I know that I’m in for a bad picture and an even worse resolution.  Lets hope FOXSports2® get their acts and provide HD for the rest of the US as well, not just Direct TV customers.

Fox Soccer is expected to be converted into a general entertainment channel.
