Damien Cox Quits Toronto Star for TSN

newsStar of Cox and Berger of the Bells, and columnist for the Toronto Star for as long as I can remember, Damien Cox has apparently resigned from the Star to take a full-time position with TSN.

I can already hear Canadians outside of the GTA complaining that TSN has hired another Toronto guy, further proof that TSN stands for Toronto Sports Network. Let me assure these people that Damien Cox actually hates Toronto with a passion.

Click that link to see what I mean. On Twitter, he's obnoxious and ridiculous, once picking a fight with the Pension Plan Puppets guys. When I asked Damien Cox aloud why he hated us so, I closed with this.

I'm not sure why Damien Cox hates us so, but I sense he feels threatened. Suddenly you don't need to work for the Toronto Star to have a publishing platform to voice your opinions. Suddenly your detractors can do more than simply write a letter to the editor. We can harness the power of Twitter, Facebook and blogs to be heard.

Damien's comfortable world is dying. You can almost understand why he's lashing out.

And now he has his deal with TSN and can quit his gig at the Star. I hope he's happy, but I'm sure he's not.

Another step towards TSN Radio... I am sure he will be off 'Blue and White Tonight' as early as this evening...

This might come as a surprise to you Boon, but most of the country hates Toronto. Damian Cox is just the norm.

Hey came across this post in the Toronto Sports Media blog. Just some food for thought.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

I hate the fact you can't run with a story after it appears in the Globe and Mail. You'd think the G&M would be a good enough source...

I also hate it when facts get in the way of a good story.

I know what you mean Mike. I heard and read those rumours too and thought that they would make quite a breaking story. First the Pat Burns premature death notice, and now this. We'd better hope the papers don't start reporting that the sky is falling. Anywho, I enjoy your blog, sir. Its a daily read for me. Keep it up.
