FaceBook Is Real, Just Ask the Eagles

Anyone else catch the six o'clock Sports Center?

The Eagles bashing has gone national. Usually this fan is all for a good Eagles' management bashing. But in this case (though it may be unpopular to say this) I think that the Eagles were correct in their firing of Dan Leone, the part time stadium employee who posted the following comment on his Facebook page in response to the departure of Dawkins...

“Dan is [expletive] devastated about Dawkins signing with Denver. . . Dam Eagles R Retarted!!”

Sure Facebook is a social network designed for catching up with and staying in touch with friends. But at the same time it's also a public domain. And when you do a status update on Facebook, well that update can be viewed by all...including your employer!

If I wrote that my company / boss was retarded (and boss if you are reading this, I love you guys!) I would expect to be fired if it was read. Though I must also admit that I am smart enough to not do this (or even accept friend requests from people that I work with).

So yea it sucks that the dude lost his job (especially in this economy), but them the brakes in the real world...not everything in the NFL is fantasy.

aw- really? I don't agree. That poor guy. He was just so upset about dawkins leaving he couldn't help himself. And they fired him over the phone- so, so mean. And in this economy? Very sad. Boo.
