I have just now talked with Damian Goddard who has confirmed that he will no longer be working as at Rogers Sportsnet.
Damian offered a very polite “no comment” when I asked for one.
Rogers official word is that Goddard’s termination is not a result of his tweets in opposition to Sean Avery’s support of gay marriage, but was rather a poor fit with Sportsnet.
I am never happy when one loses their job. In this instance, it appears that this was preventable. I will try to reach out to Goddard later to get more info for you all.
