Todd Reynolds Will Not Be Representing Any Homosexual Hockey Players

Todd Reynolds is Vice President of hockey agency Uptown Sports Management.  Todd Reynolds is rightfully getting blasted by the media for his Tweets regarding Sean Avery’s support of same-gender marriage.

Usually we cover athletes using social media for wrong reasons.  This time it is an agency Tweeting without care about how those Tweets will affect its brand.  Realize that Reynolds’ Tweets do not only affect his reputation, but that of his company and his clients.  Others may be less inclined to work with a company that Tweets such statements.  Competitors of Uptown Sports may use such Tweets against the agency in future recruiting battles.

Reynolds’ Tweets were made in response to the following video:

After Avery’s previous off-ice transgressions, I was pleasantly surprised by this video. At the same time, I’m very discouraged that another person so visible in the hockey industry would come out with a statement like that. Funny that Reynolds says “we are all equal,” just not equal enough to be married apparently.

 Thank you Todd Reynolds for speaking the truth and not denying the God you serve! He is worth it! If God be with you, who can be against you? If the silent majority would stand up for the Christ they claim to serve, this would be a nonissue!
