    He will still have a job and the show but the show without Ant will suck.

    My pickle jar says Ant does the apology rehab walk of shame and the show goes on with revolving guest co-hosts until Ant gets sprung from rehab. o_O

    While it's wishful thinking at this point and everything about this case has gone completely against what realistically should've happened I'm beginning to believe that Ant's scrubbing of his twitter and Opie's meeting being on Tuesday instead of immediately lends to things being worked out behind the scenes to try and get Anthony his job back. As I've said fans canceling their subscriptions and the media picking up on that is gonna go a long way when it comes to SiriusXM coming to their senses.

    Opie and Anthony have their fan base they will be fine. Fuck Sirius in the ass.

    They can do a podcast, there are many options in the modern world.

    didn't sirius fire anthony...or was he merely suspended? corporations don't usually go back on certain decisions (unless a lower management drone did the firing).

    I am surprised that O&A have separate contracts w/ Sirius/XM. You would figure they would have a Stern-like contract, where the broadcaster contracts w/ their production company to license the show. That way it is an all or nothing situation.

    Sirius went with a best of for Monday. They were NOT going to allow the others to go on the air under the circumstances. They are meeting with him Tuesday, so I presume a best of for Tuesday as well. This is Sirius talking to lawyers and Opie's management. They are going to look at every avenue here. Only after talking to Opie will they allow him on the air. In the meeting, they'll either offer him a settlement in return for silence, or they'll try to determine if opie will go on with Norton and not start shit. He'll be told if he goes on the air and says anything about Anthony getting canned, he will be fired.
    Is Opie has any balls he'll tell Sirius to suck his ass and force them to fire him. Then hit them with a wrongful dismissal suit.

    Anthony isn't going to see a $3 million a year paycheck anywhere else. I don't know how much you can make doing a podcast.
