Requested move 4 September 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was not moved. --BDD (talk) 17:45, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Fox Sports 1FS1 – Much like the similar change of NBC Sports Network to NBCSN, Fox is aggressively re-branding this network as simply "FS1" to align with the common acronym. Yesterday was the most apparent indication of this shift, given that they are quickly downplaying or outright replacing the previous logo with the new brand (first the ticker, now it's being used as a bug and in the Fo-I mean, FS1 College Football logo).

  • Oppose - Awfulannouncing.com is a fan blog, not a reliable source as such. All it states is that the logo bug is changing, and that they are using the acronym in place of the full name, but that doesn't mean the name of the network has actually changed. For example, the Fox broadcast network's name is Fox Broadcasting Company, even though that name is never used on air. - BilCat (talk) 19:16, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Comment The full Fox Broadcasting Company title is used merely to disambiguate from the hundreds of uses of 'Fox', be they network, computer science, military, character, placename or vulpine-related; like ABC-->American Broadcasting Company, we merely use the full titles of each network to make disambiguation easier on anyone and to keep us from parenthesizing an overload of uses and give any other ABC/Fox equal treatment here.

  • Comment: I partially object to its classification as a "fan blog"; it is as much of a blog as Deadspin, but according to the about page, they've broken quite a few major stories and has apparently been cited by various major properties. I'd say it is as comparable to TVNewser. ViperSnake151  Talk  19:19, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
  • It self-identifies itself as a "sports fan web site". Regardless, if the name is truly being changed, it will be mentioned in reliable sources as such, and we can move it then. Note that the network's website is still clearly labeled "FOX Sports 1". - BilCat (talk) 19:29, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Awfulannouncing.com does have editorial oversight per its Masthead, so it would probably qualify as a reliable source per WP:RS. - BilCat (talk) 19:46, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Per the story on Awfulannouncing.com, "“FOX Sports is our brand. This does not signify a re-branding for FS1.” (Emphasis mine.) I hope that ends this discussion. - BilCat (talk) 19:46, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose, but not per editorial issues about Awful Announcing (in the 'would I use them as a source' scale it depends on the story, they're definitely not in the "Nickandmore DO NOT USE" category for me), but for clarity; NBCSN took several months before they transitioned fully from NBC Sports Network full-time, and I assume that will be the case with Fox Sports 1 & 2 (if I'm a betting person, the MLB LCS's will be the full-time use point). Right now it's too scattered to call full-time and until the network officially calls the transition done like NBCSN did with Sochi as their hard-line, we should keep the article title as-is for now. Nate (chatter) 09:30, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
    • I concur with your reasonings on this. It's definitely too early in the process to make a page move at this point. - BilCat (talk) 09:42, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The comparison to NBCSN is an WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS argument. There is only one "NBCSN" article, while there is a FS1 (disambiguation) page listing four "FS1" topics. It may be also questionable whether the FS1 redirect should even be a WP:PRIMARYREDIRECT to Fox Sports 1 in the first place, or would even pass WP:PRECISION and WP:ACRONYMTITLE if this was indeed moved, given that a Google search of "FS1" does not really give overwhelming results toward the Fox Sports network. Zzyzx11 (talk) 13:33, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. At this time, there has been no change in its official name nor in its common usage. ONR (talk) 22:52, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Requested move 28 November 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus after being relisted, the elements that were supported were contested between others. No clear decision on what to do with this. And with no actual discussion (except for a question by an IP) since the relist. I believe relisting again, or leaving on the backlog will generate no new discussion on this issue. Closing for now, but a new RM may be opened again without having to wait for 6 months. (non-admin closure) Tiggerjay (talk) 22:18, 22 December 2015 (UTC)



– I agree with the move request above, as no one refers to FS1 as "Fox Sports 1" anymore, just like how NBCSN is no longer referred to as "NBC Sports Network" anymore; same exact situation with FS2. In addition, unlike the first request, I chose to have the 2 FS1s split up because while the American channel is obviously more popular on English Wikipedia, these 2 channels are completely different. 2601:8C:4001:DCF4:8129:7D7C:7798:C9E4 (talk) 17:07, 28 November 2015 (UTC) Relisted.

  • Support replacing FS1 redirect with the disambiguation page clearly the disambiguation page should be located at the base location -- 70.51.44.60 (talk) 05:39, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment. This is actually 3-4 different proposals, so I'm going to break my comment in three parts to reflect that. Hopefully this won't WP:TRAINWRECK, but here goes:
  • Oppose - there are many things called FS1. --NaBUru38 (talk) 00:21, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
    • Does that mean you support making FS1 into a disambiguation page? -- 70.51.44.60 (talk) 07:22, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

– It has been over a year and a half since the last move request and it seems to me that at this point, the channels themselves are no longer referred to as "Fox Sports 1" and "Fox Sports 2" anymore. Just like the last two requests, this is similar to how NBC Sports Network became NBCSN. On air, the full names of these channels aren't even said anymore and they now just go by "FS1" and "FS2". 2601:8C:4001:DCB9:F172:844C:1F4B:E7EC (talk) 16:20, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
