    Take II
    They've done this before, failed and are trying again.
    Last time they left some really good journalists in their wake.

    Seeley has gone to New York/Connecticut to be "coordinating producer" for the revamped nbcsports.com and their Olympic sites and whatever. It's the No. 1 editorial web job at NBC.

    Correct. The first LA attempt folded awhile back. I know one 25-year vet (one of their head NFL people) who ended up having to move cross-country to take a backup beat job at a market's No. 2 paper. That's a rough move when you think you've jumped on the wave of the future ...

    There's no knowing, of course. But I'd be very surprised if any of the network affiliated sports sites do any major cutting back again anytime soon.

    Understand Comcast is starting a national sports website as well and looking for editors/writers. Also NBC mentioned here is indeed going to launch a Sportsline-type site and has offers to NFL and NASCAR people from what I understand, despite dropping NASCAR TV rights they plan to cover the beat with an establsihed online writer from a pretty big outfit in the picture.
