Opie and Anthony's contract with Sirius XM Radio Inc. expires on October 1st and it doesn't seem like the two parties are close to coming to an agreement. On Wednesday, Opie wrote on his Twitter that the current offer on the table from the satcaster was "a joke and an insult."
Opie's tweet was hardly cryptic:
"I want to continue, their current offer is a joke and an insult, waiting to see if they wake up," Opie wrote."if not I have plans," he added.
The tweet was followed up by Anthony Cumia a few hours later:
"I'd rather not talk about ongoing contract negotiations in an entirely public forum for the world to see," Anthony wrote.
This helps fans understand a few things: first, that an agreement has not yet been made yet between Opie & Anthony and Sirius XM. And secondly, that Sirius XM might be willing to wait until the last minute before coming to an agreement. We're only a few weeks away before O&A's contract expires. This might be key for Howard Stern fans who are hoping on a decision being announced before November.
The recent firing of Steve C might not necessarily leave a positive taste in everyone's mouth either.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
