Dolphins Fans Hiring Airplane to Fly Over Stadium with ‘Fire Jeff Ireland’ Sign
Some Miami Dolphins fans are upset that Tony Sparano was whacked earlier this week, but that GM Jeff Ireland (pictured) is still employed, so they’re planning to hire an airplane ad calling for his firing.
Chris Joseph and Roger Paul are die-hard Dolphins fans who run the website finsnation.com. They first mentioned the idea on Twitter and began looking into hiring a plane after receiving positive responses from other fans.
The plan is to hire a plane to fly over Sun Life Stadium for a few hours prior to kickoff on January 1st, the team’s final home game. The message will be a plea to franchise owner Stephen Ross: “Mr. Ross, save our Dolphins. Fire Jeff Ireland.”
Ireland and Sparano came to the Dolphins at the same time after being hired by Bill Parcells. The GM has presided over the franchise’s first three season losing streak since the AFL-NFL merger, and the fans say they have lost faith in him.
