Dan Sileo fired after offering bounty on FSU player

By Brendan Sonnone | FSU Chopping Block

Orlando Sentinel

4:50 p.m. EST, November 4, 2013





Miami-area radio host Dan Sileo was fired after offering a bounty to Miami players in exchange for injuring a Florida State player.
 
Sileo announced on his personal Twitter account that he was leaving WMEN (640-AM) in Miami.
 
The radio station clarified Sileo's status, releasing a statement that read:

"As a result of Dan Sileo's action on his personal Twitter account on Nov. 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."





The former Miami player posted a picture of FSU defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan on his show’s personal Twitter account on Sunday and wrote he would pay $1,000 to any Miami “PLAYER to TAKES THIS KID OUT [sic].”
 
While Jernigan was holding up the “U” symbol in the picture, Sileo also had “#MHFREEMAN” in his Tweet, implying that he could’ve been referring to FSU’s other No. 8, RB Devonta Freeman. A Miami native, Freeman was also seen flashing the “U” during FSU’s 41-14 win against Miami on Saturday.
 
Sileo quickly backtracked on the bounty, responding by writing that he was clearly joking. The original Tweet about Jernigan and paying a Miami player to hurt him in a potential rematch in the ACC Championship Game, was removed.
 
Sileo has a history of making controversial statements via social media and on the air. In the past, his show was carried in the Tampa and Orlando markets.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

I heard he was immediately offered a job in the New Orleans market...they are a little more ok with this kind of stuff.

Every time I see last post JC5100, I have to click on it.... Pure comedy.

It's hard to be that stupid ....it takes effort.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

That's funny. Wonder how many markets are left?

Silieo being taken off the radio is a good thing for Miami.

Seems to me this is a crime. Why hasn't this **CENSORED** been arrested?

Does this mean it's legal to hire a hitman to injure someone else? I know hiring someone for murder will get you in jail.
