    From the Pipeline:

    They wiped out nearly all the national website desk (9 of 14 editors let go) and the entire photo desk. New guys from For The Win focusing more on mobile and social than web.

    FS1 will be down to a skeleton crew in 5 years.

    We had a long thread a month ago about what has become of CBS Sports.

    The downfall of CBS Sports

    This is what has become of it, as Fox is realizing: Attempting to be good is way too expensive with no return.

    Fox was never that good. Not really. Some of the Fox region-specific sites were. They had some good folks. But Fox national? Meh.

    CBS Sports goes back a long ways, and it was long a quality place. Fox, not so much. Feldman's fine.

    Looks like Bruce Feldman is still there, but yeah thought it weird that Bill Reiter who does radio and TV for Fox, now writes for CBS sports.

    I thought For The Win was USA Today. Plus Fox showed the direction the Website was headed when they let go of all of the regional writers.

    For the Win is/was USA Today - part of the vertical platform they were building before the guy whose brainchild it was bailed after two years.

    There's really no place left to land in this biz, is there?

    Shrewd business decision.

    The Internet is not about websites anymore. It's about social media and apps, which both require far fewer content creators.

    Not Fox, but also in the online world: I was told last night that 120 Sports laid off at least 20 last week. Bad time of year.
