Dont recall him having any say in TV deals...
In terms of business he did great at city. He got fired because there had been a dispute with a player and the players mum wrote a letter of complaint to the club. Gary cook sent an email to the club chairman ripping the shit out of the woman, even taking the piss out of her for being diagnosed with cancer... only problem was he accidentally sent it to the woman!!

He also laid into Richard Dunne for not being an oaf and not marketable enough even though he was the club captain and he'd won the clubs player of the year award for the previous 2 years.

those are just 2 examples from many of things he has done. Basically he just an unprofessional shite
