Re: Sean Avery the player, clearly he could be an annoying douche on the ice (which was his job)...what makes that even worse from a Devils' fan standpoint is that his crap actually used to work at times. He DID have a way of getting under the Devils' skin, which was more aggravating than Avery himself.
About his and anyone else's sexuality, I couldn't care less. There's straight people, bisexual people and gay people. Always has been, always will be, and the latter two are never going away. Not sure why anyone would feel the need to judge someone else's lifestyle/preference/whatever you want to call it as "wrong".
Obviously, there's still a long way to go, in terms of people simply not getting caught up in other people's sexuality, but at least now there's some degree of acceptance/tolerance going. Would much rather see gay people being able to live their lives as openly as possible, as opposed to not being true to themselves and faking it by marrying someone of the opposite sex just to appease those around them, or simply feeling that they can't or shouldn't ever act on their true preference.
