Good to see that hockey players exhibit even lower IQs than NBA players.

/I don't recall them saying that stuff IN A PRESS CONFERENCE

Ok, that was pretty funny.

The difference though? Happened on the ice.

/hopes Avery never plays in the league again
 
2008-12-03 06:29:06 PM
Uh, it was on the ice, and wasn't intended for the world to hear.

And heckling Brian Bellows isn't exactly playing with fire.
 
2008-12-03 06:35:17 PM
No one cares when it's during a game, that stuff just comes out of your mouth uncontrollably. He said it during an interview, which is a LOT different.

Why would anyone want to watch a bunch of Millionaires who wear 3 piece suits on the street?

I've heard better trash talking coming from peewees. repeating "you must really be hurt, get off the ice" and "pussy" over and over again is actually kind of pathetic. The fact that it seemed to rattle him is even more pathetic.

Chirping. Wonderful sport.
 
2008-12-03 07:04:23 PM
You can't beat hockey. The very last remaining sport where you are allowed to have bravado and get away with it. This is in no way supporting Sean Avery, even though what he said was funny. GO PENS!

Never have I been so proud to be a Pens fan!

Let's Go Pens! Gametime

Holy Crap! They were in the finals? The NorthStars? Why don't i remember that? Holy Crap! Man, my memory is totally gone.

God damnit Avery. I had you in 2 leagues and you'd get me 15-25 PIM per week garunteed.. it was great (for those that don't know, for some reason, the most Penality Minutes you have in a fantasy league, the better).
 
2008-12-03 07:58:01 PM
You're the best, Bellows. You're a farking superstar.

Well, Stevens did turn out to be a crackhead, so he obviously isn't the sharpest tool in the shed.
 
2008-12-03 08:30:19 PM
why is what avery said so bad? it was classless, but not suspension worthy.
 
2008-12-03 08:38:43 PM
I totally agree. I know the league doesn;t want its image tainted, but who f-ing cares.
 
2008-12-03 08:39:09 PM
lets not forget that Stevens was a coke-head
 
2008-12-03 08:40:34 PM
Ah, back when hockey arenas had live organists instead of "WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?!?"

Yeah, I saw that. I guess I'm the Kevin Stevens of the thread now.

I don't think Avery should have gotten suspended for it. Hell, I've heard worse from cable t.v. Jeeze, the pussification of hockey's really getting bad.
 
2008-12-04 12:34:25 AM
Its not the pussification of Hockey, its the double standard when dealing with Avery. Thing is, Avery hasn't done too much to deserve it. Its not like he's the Pacman Jones of the NHL, he's just a loudmouth pest. The guy is not in legal trouble or breaking the law, he's just being punished for words. Stupid.

/Had Phaneuf (who's a biatch) said the same about Avery instead of the other way around, there'd be no suspension at all.
//Really starting to feel like they are punishing Avery because they just don't like him.

NHL doesnt let thier players behave like children and get away with it. niether do the players.

every team in the league will be gunning to murder avery now, and hell be lucky to not have to play again.

i feel sorry that americans have become accustomed to the classless bullshiat in footbal and the NBA to the point where they accept it as normal.
 
2008-12-04 02:07:21 AM
LoL, Trottier with his girl voice: "Get off the ice you woman!"

Old video is old. Avery has spawned more hockey threads on FARK this week than ever.
 
2008-12-04 03:02:22 AM
Whenever Northeastern hockey fans visit Boston College, they regale with memories of this Eagles alum.

It's to the tune of Old MacDonald, and I forget all but the first line. But it goes "Kevin Stevens smoking crack...E-I-E-I-O!"

/#6 ranked team in the country
//...for now...

bacUncanadian: every team in the league will be gunning to murder avery now, and hell be lucky to not have to play again.

What? How is this any worse than the stupidity he had with Brodeur in the playoffs last year? Or the time he (alegedly) called Mike Grier a monkey? It feels wierd for me to have to explain hockey to a canadian, but Avery is going to be fine when he plays again. Every player in the NHL knows that's Avery's role to play. Sure they hate him, but nobody's going to do anything to the guy.


/What Avery said about Bryan Hayward was absolutely true.
//Ditto for Colin Campbell

Yeah hockey is so classy with the fighting, glove washes, slashes to broken hands, etc.

Those guys really suck at insults.
 
2008-12-04 12:47:46 PM
I think Avery is great... his antics are entertaining to watch and hear about, he's a character. Hockey used to have players with personality, and it needs more of them. Whether you like that personality or not, it's part of what made the game interesting way back when. Some of the most popular players in history have been great characters.

He could have chosen a better venue to make a comment like that, for sure... but when there's a rivalry between 2 players, I don't want it to be taboo for it to be brought up and spoken about in an interview. A suspension for this sets a precedent for others and it's not a good thing.

/I'm sure if it was anyone but Avery, we wouldn't have heard much about it.
 
2008-12-04 01:18:57 PM
The reason Avery got suspended was because he made public and disparaging comments about people outside the realm of hockey. If he had only insulted players, it would be different.

There are LOTS of athletes who have zero class. Avery just happens to be classless AND stupid.
