I love it. The guy called Clarkson a career minor leaguer. Hey Sean, karma's a b*tch.

The only thing that would make it sweeter if Avery crashes and burns Lenny Dykstra style. Either way, I only wish the worst for him. He's a scumbag through and through, and a no talent waste of space to boot. He should only get what's coming to him.

Enjoy the KHL Sean. Hopefully you go to one of the teams where the owner stiffs you on your paycheck.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Win win here. Hockey fans don't have to deal with him anymore, and Sean gets to spend more time designing crushed velvet underwear.

Expect a new line of man purses available soon....maybe after he assaults another police officer that comes to his house about noise complaints....

Good Riddance, scumbag!


Lisa: Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?

Homer: No, I do not know what shaden-frawde is. Please tell me, because I’m dying to know.

Lisa: It’s a German term for “shameful joy,” taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

Homer: Oh, come on, Lisa. I’m just glad to see him fall flat on his butt. He’s usually all happy and comfortable, and surrounded by loved ones, and it makes me feel. … What’s the opposite of that shameful joy thing of yours?

Lisa: Sour grapes.

Homer: Boy, those Germans have a word for everything.

The one thing that Sean Avery did in his career that made me proud:

Become such a complete douchebag that he was able to convince the rest of the hockey world what a scumbag organization the Rangers are. Happy trails.

would be willing to be the leafs give him some sort of tryout and a chance to make the team. both he and burke are huge proponents of acceptance of LGBT in professional sports (which is a good cause) + burke loves that kind of player.

i don't think burke loves that kind of player - he's lamented the fact that 'the rats' are taking over the game - players who are dirty but who refuse to fight. avery would be high on everyone's list of rats. with how much burke obsesses over controlling the media, i don't see a chance this happens.

Avery was a solid agitator at the best of times, but wasn't very effective when he wasn't playing on the edge. He always did a number against the Devils especially with Mottau and Clarkson chasing him around every game.

Torts always despised him, and with the team doing so well, it was clear he had no place on that team. Maybe, he just doesn't love hockey. He's not going to be a leader in the AHL, so probably best they parted ways. I'd be disappointed if this was the end of his career.

I thought he has gotten a bad rap along the way. Hockey is an old boys club. These guys are all pretty much personality clowns of one another. He got chased away from the Stars because he was different. Their leaders thought he made no effort to interact with them and clearly didn't like him. What was their big issue again? He listened to music all the time and was on his laptop in the locker room. Maybe, he's been around hockey locker rooms for his entire life and knows he doesn't fit in with the jocks and the locker-room talk.

In New York with Torts, he never had a chance.

Sean Avery is different. There is no question about it. But hasn't he been controversy free in the NHL for years. He's never had an on-ice suspension and the sloppy-seconds suspension in the first place was pretty pathetic when you think about it. I'm interested to see if he'll get another shot in this league, but I think most GMs don't think he can fit in with their team. Hockey and sports don't like different. As the Burke family started the 'You Can Play' initiative this week, I think Avery's history shows how far the NHL is from the goals of the campaign. (By the way, I am not saying Avery is gay. I am just thinking why it be so hard for any athlete to come out in the current environment).

if i had to guess, hockey will have the first player come out and i'd bet it's within the next two years.

i think the sport can handle it and i think most hockey fans could as well.

From everything I have seen and heard, hockey is one of most homophobic sport out there along with baseball. In locker rooms from high school, juniors, college and the pros, words like f*g, f*ggot and h*mo, are second nature. The environment would be fairly uncomfortable for someone who was gay growing up in it for his entire life. Add that to the fact that you'd have to be a trailblazer, I can't see it happening.

When Simmonds called Avery a f*ggot, how many times do you think Avery has heard that? How often do you think that goes on during a normal game? I'd say pretty often. I think players are programmed to call another player in altercation either, a fvcking bitch, fvcking p*ssy or fvcking f*aggot.

Sorry, but I'm calling bullsh*t here. Remember this one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2lEUxwngZA

He looks around to make sure the refs aren't looking and does this crap. And his teammates hate him not because he's "different." When your teammate pulls sh*t like that, payback is often directed at you.

His antics might give a team a short-term boost, but in the long run he kills your team.

Again, I only wish the worst for him.

F*ggot is generic enough that it doesn't necessarily mean homosexual. I'm sure Claude was called that several times in his career, but I don't think anyone really thought he was gay. There's a South Park episode on the matter.

That's good agitating. He liked to stir sh!t up. Anything Avery ever did, Lemeiux did 10x worse. Players defend idiots and douchebags to death in this league as those are guys they usually love in the locker room. And I am talking about players who went out doing some cheap sh!t that really hurt guys, not small little things like bumping a goalie.

And I'm not saying anyone is wrong for not liking him as fans. He's pissed off a lot of teams, players and fans by doing things like that. I'd expect pretty much anyone to hate him and for good reason. Still a lot better than the things we have seen Pronger and Cooke do in the past.
