Fox Sports quietly dumped the "Fox Sports Girls" concept recently, confirming the move with a statement indicating they will "focus on other projects that serve our fans."

While it gives nobody glee that the women who served that role for FSN and other regional Fox Sports networks are out of luck, many would agree that the concept was somewhere between puzzling, unnecessary and alienating to viewers (my wife included).

Calling them girls and only allowing them to use their first names, among other things, was fairly ridiculous in 2015. Kudos to Fox for moving on.

MORE PLEASE The rest of the NBA playoffs might be great, but I'd still watch a best-of-37 between the Spurs and Clippers.
