FSN Will Be Renamed: “Root Sports”



In Spring 2011, FSN will be no more. Instead you'll have the awkwardly named "Root Sports" to blame for missed faceoffs. [ Biz Journal ]

DirecTV Sports Networks said late Friday it intends to rebrand its three regional sports networks, including FSN Rocky Mountain, as Root Sports in the spring.


The other regional networks to share the brand are FSN Northwest and FSN Pittsburgh.


DirecTV Sports Networks said the new brand name has been in research and development for more than a year.

But you have to wonder what exactly this means for the future of Penguins broadcasts.

Even Mike Green, when told of the news, was upset.
