FWIW, in the Ohio area, there has been some whisper about FSN Ohio buying SportsTime Ohio (Cleveland Indians, MAC sports, Ohio High School playoffs).

One reason is TWC has apparently started a Sports Channel in the Dayton/Cinci area, and FSN doesn`t want TWC Sports getting a big chunk of NE Ohio.

FSN Ohio was operated by Charles Dolan (father of James & Larry) when the Indians were on FSN Ohio until SportsTime Ohio started in 2006

That would make FSN Ohio a big player again, especially in N Ohio, Indians territory.

FSN Ohio would then be run like FSN Florida/Sun Network between regions..

The word is the Indians owner Larry Dolan (not James, who runs MSG, NY Rangers, etc.) would still have an interset in the new venture

STO is a full time HD network, unlike FSN Ohio.

FSNOhio is run by FOX and Cablevision ..STO is run by Indians. Indians ownership had no part of FSNOhio at any time.

Hearing FUEL will replace SPEED when the conversion takes place


Where did you hear that? I follow all things NASCAR very close and this is the first I've heard of that. And Fuel's distribution is too low to justify the high cost of NASCAR.

Charles Dolan did run Cablevision, FSNOhio,
Larry Dolan owns the Indians with STO ownership as a seperate entity.
So when he sells the Tribe, he`ll still have broadcasting rights.
James Dolan now runs Cablevision AMC networks, MSG, NY Rangers, etc.

We simply have too many Dolan`s here.
