Facebook post gets worker fired
Dan Leone, who the [Philadelphia] Inquirer said worked as a west gate chief, was unhappy the team let Brian Dawkins sign with the Denver Broncos in free agency. According to the newspaper, Leone posted the following on his Facebook page: "Dan is [expletive] devastated about Dawkins signing with Denver ... Dam Eagles R Retarted!!"
Despite deleting the comment, Leone told the Inquirer the Eagles fired him by phone days later.
Maybe I'm just retarted about the whole matter, but maybe Leone was fired for having three misspellings in the last four words of his status post. Even if I forgive the "R" (and I don't), he ended this happy little note with a mere 50% success rate. Is that how he does his job as west gate chief, by letting 50% of unticketed Eagles fans into home games?
Nice work, Leone...
