    Fox absolute rubbish . Kate Abdo doesn’t have a clue . . I watch the games on Telemundo even if don’t speak Spainish . Then I watch ESPNFC analysts talk about games for about 20 minutes or so . That’s all I need

    All right, you guys gave 3 reasons why Telemundo has been better than FOX. Although FOX has been flawed, here are three reasons why I think it’s been worth watching.

    1. The Visuals. FOX’s visuals, their augmented reality, their studio, and the colors are great. It’s so much better than the bland visuals ESPN puts up. It’s like your watching a show with lights, it’s really a great spectacle.

    2. Pundits. Hiddink and Crespo have been questionable, but Smith and Munoz are great. They are articulate, interesting and know what they talking about. Kate Abdo’s been better than Rob Stone, while Lalas has been full of opinions. In Abdo, Smith, Munoz, and Lalas, they don’t have a bad setup.

    3. It’s in English. I don’t speak Spanish, and probably won’t. I want to know opinions, I want to hear what’s going on, and commentators give me entertainment when the game gets a bit dry. I need to hear stuff, and it is great listening to opinions and hearing something.

    FOX doesn’t compare to ESPN. Their analysis is better. But FOX has given me entertainment, and that’s what I need.

      Sounds like the old slogan for Fox Sports 1…the 1 for fun! If you’re on board for subpar coverage, enjoy!

    Regarding Fox’s World Cup Today, Ian Joy hosts the show in Los Angeles, not Moscow’s Red Square.

      Yeah I was thinking the same thing. That is a very big misstep by Fox not bringing him.
