" I honestly didn't think it would cause this much repercussion. I'm loyal to the team. I did nothing but support them all the way. I did all I can to help that organization, I made one mistake in six years and now I'm no longer there."
When I read about Dan Leone's(who, by the way, also has a neurological disorder and needs to use a wheelchair – nice, Jeff Lurie) story on Deadspin, my heart went out to him. I've been there and the Philadelphia Eagles are completely out of line in firing him. I understand he questioned the organization's decision not to re-sign Dawkins - but what employee hasn't in the past? Well, not the Dawkins thing – but wondering what the hell our boss are doing at some point. I know I sure as hell did after my little incident with Comcast. But unlike my time there, Dan's bee a loyal employee for the last six years and has had a clean record – evidently, that means nothing if you call management retarded on Facebook. Classy.
Dear Jeff Lurie,
Stop being such a scumbag and give Dan his job back.
Here's Dan on Philly's Fox affiliate, discussing his firing:
