If it went down the way No Guts, No Glory is reporting it went down, then I have no problem with it at all. I will explain why after the fan gives his side of the story.
The passionate fan who identified himself as “Sean” called into 790/104.3 The Ticket on Tuesday to explain his exchange with Ireland
According to Sean, he expressed to Ireland how he’s been a season ticket holder for many years, cited a few of Ireland’s bad roster moves and, in an admittedly moment of fan frustration, suggested Ireland fire himself.
At this Ireland patted Sean on the back, reportedly said, “Good suggestion,” turned, walked away and said, “Asshole.”
After Sean relayed his story, other callers chimed in corroborating Sean’s story. One caller even said Ireland was followed by a few drunk fans who began to chant “Fireland!” before he threatened to have them thrown out of the stadium.
The only mistake Ireland made was not getting far enough away before calling him an asshole.
If as a fan you are bold enough to tell the GM he should fire himself, don’t cry when he says something negative back to you. It isn’t a one way street.
Ireland has had a shaky reputation at best while being Dolphins GM, but if someone told me I should fire myself, I might think they were an asshole too.
Toughen up Sean.
