Dolphins fans protest outside team facility, call for Jeff Ireland to be fired (Pictures)
As expected, a number of Dolphins fans gathered to protest on Tuesday outside the team’s training facility in Davie, Fla. The brown paper bags were out and — unsurprisingly — general manager Jeff Ireland was the target of most of the criticism from the various signs and chants. As Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post shared with us on Twitter, some of the signs included “Toot to give Ireland the boot” and “Stop the circus, Ireland must go.” Some fans even took the opportunity to let the team know they have no interest in settling for Tim Tebow, as evidenced by a sign that simply read “No Tebow.” At the moment, it doesn’t appear anyone arranged for a “Fire Jeff Ireland” banner flyover. Here are a couple more pictures that Volin passed along:
As you can see, it didn’t appear that a massive number of fans came out to join the rally. For their sake, let’s just hope they have more success than the dozens of Clippers fans who tried to get LeBron to sign with L.A.
