NEW DIGS: SI.com's Richard Deitsch reported Michelle Beisner is leaving NFL Network to "work as an NFL features reporter" at ESPN. Beisner worked at NFL Network since '06 as a studio host and field reporter. She will be "reporting and fronting player profiles and other features" for "Sunday NFL Countdown" (SI.com, 7/27).
A HOST OF PROBLEMS: In N.Y., Bob Raissman wrote to call Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” in a "state of major transition is an understatement." The show "still does not have a host." That is a "major issue -- embarrassing, too." Sources said that NFL Network's Rich Eisen, who is "in the middle of a rough contract negotiation with NFLN suits," is a candidate for the job (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 7/27).
ONE DIRECTION: New AFL Predators President Jared Saft said that a federal judge has "issued a temporary injunction" preventing the current owner of ORLANDOPREDATORS.com from "redirecting the site." In Orlando, Alicia Delgallo noted the domain for the past two weeks had been "redirecting to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's list" of sexual offenders and predators. The AFL has "filed a lawsuit to take possession of the website, but expects the process to take up to 60 days" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 7/27).
