Hosts file issues
Hey all! I have a slight issue thats not making much of any sense. I have my hosts file setup to redirect traffic from certain urls to a local host. Problem is, all but one of them actually redirect and I can't figure out why. Were blocking traffic because our salespeople are goofing on sports sites too much. The one that won't redirect is foxsportsradio.com.
The only thing I can think of is there is some type of mask or something where the url is faked and thats why it isn't working, but I have no idea. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Maybe there are subdomains you need to block as well.
