New York Rangers Star Sean Avery Openly Supports Gay Marriage
DCEric said//Especially since Tampa destroyed us.
metta8 saidColleagues decry agent's comments opposing gay marriage
I told him that: "If you want to be a proud bigot, that is your choice. Enjoy!"
yourname2000 saidWell, I've never been much of an athletic supporter, but I'd be happy to be his.
RSportsguy saidI wonder what one of Reynolds clients wife feels about his comments. I am sure that Carrie Underwood ( Nashville Predator Mike Fisher's wife) has plenty of gay fans that buy her albums and download her songs. Just saying!

YAHOO SPORTSA Toronto broadcaster has been fired after he posted on Twitter about the debate surrounding New York Rangers forward Sean Avery’s support of same-sex marriage.
Damian Goddard was a host on Rogers Sportsnet. On Tuesday, he tweeted his support for hockey agent Todd Reynolds, who used Twitter to voice his opposition to Avery’s position.
Goddard wrote: “I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage.”
The TV network then issued its own tweet, saying: “Today’s tweet from Damian Goddard does not reflect the views of Rogers Sportsnet.” On Wednesday, it severed ties with Goddard.
In a statement, Sportsnet spokesman Dave Rashford 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.”
