Sportsnet fires host after homophobic tweets

Sportsnet decided to fire on-air host Damian Goddard [pic] after a string of tweets in support of a hockey agent’s anti-gay stance. Goddard tweeted in support of Burlington’s homophobic hockey agent Todd Reynolds. Reynolds upset his organization after mocking New York Ranger Sean Avery for making a PSA in support of marriage equality.

“I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage,” Goddard said in a tweet.

“Mr. Goddard was a freelance contractor and in recent weeks it had become clear that he is not the right fit for our organization,” the sports giant’s communications director, Dave Rashford, said in a short statement.
