Untitled[edit]

As someone who is usually a deletionist, I find myself in the unusual position of putting a hangon on someone else's article. However, the subject is head of a pretty large company (though you'd find it hard to prove given the brevity of the article thus far). Rogers is a big operator in Canada, and Rogers Sportsnet in particular is a major player, second only to TSN (owned partly by ESPN) in sports cable channels up north. This article needs work, but the subject is notable. Realkyhick 03:14, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Update: in fixing the article, I found out that the content was a copy-and-paste from Rogers' web site. I rewrote the article to get around this, but added a link to the corporate bio and also added the Rogers Communications template. I think we're good to go now.

The same editor added the same copyright violation back in from here. I took it all out. 192.160.216.52 (talk) 15:52, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
