Dolphins Scout Says He Was Fired For Staying Home To Care For Sick Wife

So, this is not a very good look for the Miami Dolphins, an organization which has pretty much become synonymous with "bad looks" over the course of the last year or so. According to a intent-to-initiate-litigation letter obtained by Fox Sports, a former Dolphins scout plans to sue the team over his having been fired, allegedly for working from home while tending to his cystic fibrosis-stricken wife.

The scout, Nate Sullivan, claims that he had worked out an arrangement with the team's three previous general managers which allowed him to perform his duties from home and remain close to his wife. But new GM Dennis Hickey was apparently unhappy with this arrangement, and fired Sullivan because of it. There's also this:

The intent-to-initiate-litigation letter also states the Dolphins began excluding cystic fibrosis medications from their health care when revamping their insurance offerings in April. Harr told FOX Sports 1 that the cost of one prescription skyrocketed from $10 to $3,000 per pill under the new policy.

"It is our understanding that Cystic Fibrosis was the only terminal medical condition singled out," the letter states. "This drastic reduction in health care benefits jeopardized JoAnne Sullivan's ability to afford her pharmaceuticals, shifting an exorbitant financial burden on the Sullivans."

Yeah, that's pretty fucked up.
