    Sounds like it's causing a bit of a stir in the media world. Wonder if this is where Sam Lee is going to as well?

    Yes , seems Sam Lee has gone here



    It’s understood The Athletic, which only last week announced an ambitious plan to launch in the UK, has already poached Times sports editor Alex Kay-Jelski ( says Oliver Kay soon too) and the Independent’s sports editor Ed Malyon.

    Presumably Nick Harris didn't get the call.

    Wonder if they will jump ship or whether they will stay true to their moral values that they keep shoving down our throats..

    It'd be seriously funny if he'd blown his chances with that deleted tweet.
