A quick discussion question: Sean Avery edition

15 12 2008


Saying, “I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds,” hours before your team plays a hockey game against your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend’s team is both a suspendable offense and a reason for your team to sever all ties with you.

Personally, I just don’t get it.

Tell me about it. Personally – I think it should have been an issue for the Stars to deal with – not the NHL. I would have been OK if Tom Hicks had come right out and said “You can’t do that, take x games off.” I would have respected that. Its his money, and his team – he should be allowed to punish his guys when they act like jackasses.

What Sean Avery did was stupid. There is no arguing that. But was it really that terrible? And if it was that terrible – how come everyone (media, etc) has no problem repeating it. When someone gets in trouble for using a racial slur, the media doesn’t trip all over themselves to repeat it. Its embarrassing that Avery is likely going to end up missing more time for this comment than Bertuzzi missed for ending a man’s career.

Avery has a mouth on him,EVERYONE knows that, in fact I think they talk to him just so that they can get some good ink. So it’s not a surprise that he said what he said. Avery just wasn’t a good fit for Dallas, that’s fine. I wouldn’t mind if he came back to the Kings, I loved him when he was here.

Avery is an ass, albiet a talented ass. He has serious maturity issues and the NHL is a business that has struggled to gain popularity and airtime. Comments like his and his antics on the ice prevent him from becoming the true talent he can become, in addition to, keeping parents from embracing hockey for themselves and their children.

Let’s say you own a business and one of your most talented salespeople has an interview and at the end of an engaging interview about your business and it’s products he/she says the following:

I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in (your business name here) for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds,”


Your fired.

He’s bad for the Stars and he’s bad for the NHL.

Frankly I would have suspended him for life when he jumped around in front of Marty Brodeur like an ass.

Whether he wants to be or doesn’t want to be, he’s part of a huge business and is a role model for young children that watch him and admire his skills. Why ruin it Avery? Play Hockey and shut your stupid mouth!
