Angry Fox 1 sports will suck bigtime

SPEED channel is being turned into a espn format with everything but racing, sad to see it go, it's a result of the economy, l will miss it a lot.

may it rest in peace

sad day for us motor heads, monster truck & racing fans.

l hope stacey and dennis gage can find another broadcast partner.

I don't watch much TV anymore, but Speed was one of my favorites when I did. I care nothing about "Pro" sports, who wants to watch a bunch of grown men running around playing with a child's ball? Not me! And I don't give a rats a$$ about Nascar and it's bellybutton cars, either.

Maybe somebody will see the vacuum and start up a new channel like Speed. Heck, if they can bring back "The Nashville Network" from the dead, there's no reason that Speedvision can't be brought back!

Wonder what will happen to all the Speed Channel shows?

I'm really going to miss Fast and Loud, NOT!

Great, another channel to show eleventeen hours of fooseball. TV is getting way out of hand. The wholesome family channel is nothing but teenage sex and fighting anymore. Where is Sheriff Andy Taylor when we need him?

They took the Speed channel away from us "economical" subscribers of Bright House. Have to pay up the next tier to get it now. I guess it's a good thing it's changing, now I won't be missing my favorite shows - because they won't be on anymore!
SUX!

I just went to SpeedTv.com and left them my opinion of their money hungry tactics. And on Aug 18th, I'm calling DirecTv and cancelling that channel. What a bunch of crap. Baseball...............................and SOCCER!!! What's this world coming to??
