Video: NOM turns to Canadian sports world; result more hokey, less hockey

by Jeremy Hooper

Damian Goddard is the Canadian sportscaster who was released from his role as a freelance contractor with Rogers Sportsnet earlier this year. Goddard and his willing allies on the conservative side of the fence have claimed the release was exclusively because of a Tweet the weekend sportsman made in opposition to same-sex marriage, but the network says it was for a number of "well documented reasons" which they said they would gladly share "during any proceeding initiated by Mr. Goddard." To date, Mr. Goddard has not initiated any such proceeding, despite his announced plans to do so.

Goddard also works for the National Organization for Marriage's so-called "Marriage Anti-Defamation Project," the only named staff member other than Maggie Gallagher. Which is surely how he got his new gig as NOM's latest victim:

*ALSO: Goddard recently Tweeted his support for Courage, the Catholic "gays can change" group.
