Does fat intake negatively affect the use of glucose for energy in athletics?

I have read two different scientific books on sports nutrition and both came to different conclusions on how fat intake affects glucose usage during exercise. One of the readings came to the conclusion that fat has a glycogen sparing affect and is therefore beneficial. However, the authors of Nutrition for Soccer state that fat intake doesn't fully allow the usage of glucose during exercise, therefore decreasing anaerobic performance. Do any of you have any clue as to who is right?

Yeah. I hear this a lot from high carb, low fat eaters.

I know next to nothing about Frutarianism, but I think this is the basis for Dr. doug Graham's 80/10/10 diet.
