Toronto broadcaster Damian Goddard was fired by Rogers Sportsnet Wednesday after tweeting his opinion on same-sex marriage. The studio host wrote that he backed hockey agent Todd Reynolds, who had criticized Rangers forward Sean Avery for publicly supporting the cause. "I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage," Goddard wrote.
After issuing its own tweet indicating that Goddard's comments did not represent the views of Rogers Sportsnet, the company announced: "Mr. Goddard was a freelance contractor and in recent weeks it had become clear that he is not the right fit for our organization."
