Have any of you guys seen this story? If not, here is the gist.
Sean avery, an average winger for the dallas stars (hockey) who is hated throughout the league was recently suspended indefinetly by the league for comments he made to the media. 1st off this guy is an *******. That said, I am a little perplexed that a sport where guys regularly use their equipment as a deadly weapon and go unpunished, have responded so severely. While in canada (where he is from) he told the media something to the effect of " I love canada and am glad to be in the country. I have recently noticed a trend by other players in the league to fall in love with my sloppy seconds (elisha cuthbert most recent) which I find very strange". It may not be the perfect quote as it is from memory but it captures the overall tone and message.
What he said is certainly an asshead thing to say, but an indefinite suspension? Really? A potshot at an ex has gotten him on the edge of getting kicked out of arguably one of the bloodiest leagues in sport? Really?
