High school roundup: Bruins hockey wins on Senior Night

By David Fierro Updated 6:25 pm, Saturday, February 10, 2018 The Brunswick School hockey team celebrated Senior Night in style against The Gunnery on Friday night. Receiving one goal and three assists from senior forward Christian LeSueur and one goal and one assist apiece from Jack Forrest and Cooper Moore, the Bruins rolled to a 5-1 win over Gunnery in a key NEPSIHA Division I matchup. A power-play goal by Forrest, a senior, gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead at the 16:13 mark of the first period. In a 4-on-4 situation, Gunnery scored off a breakout, evening the score 15 seconds into the second period. A collision on the boards shattered a panel of the glass, causing the game to be delayed for approximately 20 minutes. After the crew on hand at Brunswick worked feverishly to fix replace the glass and clear glass off the ice, it was all Bruins. Freshman Ryan St. Louis scored with Brunswick on a power play, making it 2-1 13:03 into the second period. Senior Patrick Burkinshaw scored at the 17:14 mark of the second period, putting the Bruins ahead 3-1. LeSueur and Charles Shaffer each assisted on the goal.

Controversial radio host Dan Sileo will not be involved with Padres

According to a Padres spokesperson, the team has been “assured” that its radio content for the upcoming season will not include controversial sports-talk host Dan Sileo. Sileo recently left The Mighty 1090 and, according to people familiar with the situation, likely will join Entercom, the Padres’ radio partner. The possibility exists that Sileo, in a yet-to-be-announced capacity, and Padres games will be carried on the same station. Entercom operates several stations in San Diego. They include FM 94.9, the Padres’ home last season, and Energy 97.3, a potential destination for 2018. Both sides have considered a change in format. Bob Bolinger, vice president/market manager of Entercom San Diego, did not immediately return a message seeking comment. The Padres do not have input on Entercom hires, and Sileo will not be a club employee. Per their agreement, Entercom also supplies the personnel and format for pre- and post-game shows. The Padres determine in-game content. Radio broadcasters Ted Leitner, Jesse Agler and Tony Gwynn Jr. are expected to return in 2018. Speculation — and, in some circles, outcry — about Sileo’s next job has heightened, even as Sileo has increased his activity on social media. On Thursday, Sileo joined the masses chiming in on reports that President Donald Trump slurred immigrants from certain countries, tweeting a link to a news story along with the following comment: “TELL me this is NOT FUNNY!!” Sileo, who has a history of controversial statements, faced allegations of racism, sexism and anti-Semitism in prior workplaces. Between 2012 and 2013, he was fired by three Florida radio stations, once for remarks he made on air and twice for things he tweeted. He landed with The Mighty 1090, the Padres’ former flagship station, in early 2014. “I’ve stepped on my(self) so many times in this business,” Sileo told the Union-Tribune in an interview that year. “But I Continue Reading

Hot reads: ‘MNF’ quandary if Gruden leaves; Sileo leaves Mighty 1090

Assuming that Jon Gruden will eventually be hired to coach the Oakland Raiders — as reported repeatedly by ESPN — where does that leave ESPN and “Monday Night Football?” Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch began an examination of that with a column Tuesday. He noted that while the ratings for “MNF” have slipped considerably through the years, the broadcast still remains the highest for any cable station. An average of more than 10 million people watched “MNF” this season and Deitsch believes the analyst job is “easily among the top three talent jobs at ESPN.” Deitsch wrote that he spoke to a half-dozen people on the subject and offered this blueprint: “They will examine all the NFL coaches who get fired or retire and analyze if any could step in and have a Tony Romo-like impact. (Unlikely.) They will reach out to Peyton Manning and pray he has a change a heart about broadcasting. (Very unlikely.) They will do an inventory in-house of potential candidates for either a two- or three-person booth. They will determine how high they can go on salary, which will not be close to the reported $6.5 million Gruden makes annually. “The biggest problem for ESPN,” Deitsch concluded, “is that there is no can’t-miss candidate out there at the moment.” One high-ranking executive told Deitsch: “I think Mike Tomlin would be fantastic in the studio or the booth. Philip Rivers is interesting — he can talk ball with the best of them — but I’m not sure of the entertainment factor. Bruce Arians is engaging and likable but may not be polished enough to help carry a broadcast. It’s going to be a serious challenge for them.” Arians, who retired Monday from Arizona, is the only one of three mentioned above who are currently available. Sileo out at Mighty 1090 San Diego sports talk radio host Dan Sileo is moving on from the Mighty 1090. Where? That remains Continue Reading

Dan Sileo, former Miami lineman, fired from radio station after putting bounty on Florida State players

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — A former Miami defensive lineman who tweeted that he would pay $1,000 to any Hurricane who “takes ... out” a Florida State player has lost his job as a sports radio host. Dan Sileo was fired Monday by WMEN, one day after posting the now-deleted tweet. Sileo says he only intended the tweet as a joke. The South Florida-based station says his actions “have no place in sports.” No. 3 Florida State crushed No. 7 Miami on Saturday, 41-14. Sileo has been criticized for on-air incidents in the past at other stations, including when he said last year he wanted Miami defenders to “pull a knife” on quarterbacks who run on them, and did not respond to a request for comment. He played for the Hurricanes in the mid-1980s and appeared in 10 NFL games with Tampa Bay in 1987. Join the Conversation: Continue Reading
