…as explained by Mottram (above, right) himself :

I™m leaving AOL and, more importantly, FanHouse to be the œSenior Editor of Blogs & Community at Yahoo! Sports. If you™re not familiar with what a Senior Editor of Blogs & Community is, well, don™t beat yourself up over it. I™m probably the first one ever, so rest assured that it™s a pretty big deal.

Mottram tells The Big Lead, “I™m really not going anywhere. I™ll still be working from my kitchen table.” which has to be terrific news. For him, anyway. No disrespect to JM’s new paymasters, but I’ve seeing the parking lot in Sunnyvale and other than the close proximity to In-n-Out, it’s kind of a bummer.
