Dan Sileo, the sports talk goon and former University of Miami football player, is a remarkable human being. Sileo was fired today for putting a $1000 bounty on the head of Florida State’s Devonta Freeman when the Hurricanes meet the Seminoles again in the ACC Championship. (He proceeded to tweet a picture of Timmy Jernigan who also wears #8.) Sileo eventually deleted the tweets and posted some hollow apologies, but the damage was already done and he was fired for the second time in 2013. TomahawkNation.com’s Facebook page got a screengrab of Sileo’s latest blunder:
This time Sileo was let go by NBC’s South Florida affiliate WMEN 640AM.
November 4, 2013-As a result of Dan Sileo’s action on his personal Twitter account on November 3, 2013, WMEN has terminated his independent contractor relationship with the station. The ownership, staff, and management of WMEN 640 Sports do not condone his actions which have no place in sports.
Earlier this year Sileo made anti-Semitic remarks on the air which ended in his termination from Miami’s WQAM. In 2012, Tampa’s WDAE fired him after he called some draft picks, “monkeys.” All Sileo needs now is to be fired from an Orlando station for Florida Sports Talk Bingo.
