Jeff Ireland Is Gone, and Twitter Reacts With Utter Glee
We came here today to bury GM Jeff Ireland's time with the Dolphins, not to praise him. Well, actually we came here to relentlessly mock him on Twitter. After years of the #Fireland hashtag breaking out on the social networking site just about anytime the Dolphins did anything wrong (which was often), the fan base's wildest dreams have come true. Ireland and the team have mutually agreed to part ways.
Of course #MutuallyAgreeToPartWaysland doesn't make such a great hashtag, but Twitter had a fun time responding to the news.
First there were just explosions of utter glee:
