Avery Same Sex Marriage Debate Gets TV Broadcaster Fired

averyruletshirtIn a story that just won’t go away, Jesse Spector at the Daily News reports the Damian Goddard of Toronto television outlet Rogers Sportsnet was fired after he took to Twitter on Tuesday to agree with hockey agent Todd Reynolds who blasted Sean Avery’s video for the Human Rights Campaign in support of same-sex marriage.

“I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage,” Goddard wrote on Twitter.

Rogers Sportsnet replied in a series of tweets to people who complained about Goddard’s tweet, “Today’s tweet from Damian Goddard does not reflect the views of Rogers Sportsnet.”

In a statement, the network then said, “Mr. Goddard was a freelance contractor and in recent weeks it had become clear that he is not the right fit for our organization.”

…i don’t think the Human Rights Campaign could have ever dreamed of publicity like this. The funny thing is that Reynolds and Goddard took an absolute non-story and turned it into a huge debate that may in the end be a great thing for the advancement same sex marriage.
