In 2007, actor/comedian Jay Mohr began contributing a weekly video clip and column.[3] Foxsoccer.com, Scout.com and Whatifsports provide additional content. The site was redesigned in April 2007.

MSN[edit]

In July 2004, FoxSports.com and Microsoft began execution of a multi-year agreement, which called for FoxSports.com to become the exclusive sports provider for Microsoft’s MSN.com portal, replacing ESPN.com.[4] As a result of the agreement, the site was often referred to as FoxSports.com on MSN.

On December 17, 2009, FoxSports.com was briefly replaced on the MSN main page by NBCSports.com during a cosmetic upgrade.
