Radio jackass suspended for moronic Erin Andrews tweets

    Sileo then told Andrews, among other things, to "make me dinner, bake me a cake" and "go cover a cat show." He also tweeted: "I have no respect for her. Worst sports reporter chick in sports."

    Sileo, who already had angered WQAM management with the initial tweets, made the situation even worse by then tweeting on Thursday evening: "Love Erin Andrews either naked or in a porn. Not at a sports desk."


    I guess my only question is, why suspended and not fired?

    Did it happen in Canada?

    Maybe we should all take a few seconds to get in touch with management and ask.

    What stuns me about it is I've always thought Andrews was pretty good at her job.

    If you told me this story and asked me to guess who the radio jackass was, Sileo would be among my first 3 guesses.

    This guy is one of the biggest idiots in the history of sports talk radio. He's going to continue to do things like this and embarrass his station until program directors someday realize he's making them all look bad and he's not worth the trouble.

    He should go work for the Toronto Star.

    He's a lot like Scott Kaplan out in San Diego. Moronic, always taking cheap shots at someone and not quite as knowledgable as he thinks he is. If you bought them for what they're worth and sold them for what they think they're worth, you'd come out a million dollars ahead in the process.

    The way dudes like this obsess over Andrews reveals so much more about their insecurities than anything Andrews could ever do to make herself look bad at her job. And as Mizzou pointed out, she's actually good at it! There are plenty of sideline reporter types who are way less prepared, way less professional (this is not limited to women either; lot of bad male TV hacks), but they don't look like Erin Andrews so fratty tough guy sports radio jock doesn't care.

    Late in my career, I was covering a college hoops game and Andrews was doing "sideline" and she placed her empty Mountain Dew bottle right in front of where I was sitting on press row.

    A fraternity guy who fit every negative stereotype imaginable, tapped me on the shoulder and offered me $20 for the Mountain Dew bottle so he could be close to where Andrews put her lips...

    I politely declined...

    This is my favorite part: Sileo on Saturday tweeted: "Wanted to apologize [for] the peephole and porn stuff. Whatever I think of ur work... not cool. I have a daughter."

    Did he not have a daughter two days earlier? Perhaps she was just born that morning.

    It's such a hilariously sad non sequitur.

    I shouldn't have said I hope she's fired and disgraced and felt up in the clubhouse. I didn't get much sleep last night, and the coffee machine was broken and so I was a little off my game. Also, I have a daughter.

    I shouldn't have said she lost a womb and gained a penis, or used imagery of her being mouth-raped. I had a long night enforcing my no-edit clause on those desk douchebags, so I was a little off my game. Also, I have a daughter.
