“I just wanted to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about. But, enjoy the game tonight.”
The most contemptible man in the NHL, Sean Avery - a racist, a punk, and an incessant self-promoter - uttered the above quote with the cameras rolling a few hours before his Stars were going to take on the Calgary Flames. A guy from the Flames, Dion Phaneuf, dates actress Elisha Cuthbert, Avery’s ex. The NHL then swiftly decided that his statement was "crude and unjust" and slapped him with a suspension, as its considered "conduct detrimental to the league."
Me personally, I think this is some of the coolest ish to happen in the NHL since Jarome Iginla became the first person of color to lead the NHL in scoring. When I first heard this on ESPN I thought I was watching BEEF IV or something. Could you imagine if Carmelo and LeBron had that exchange about LaLa? LMAO!
Two thumbs down to the NHL and commissioner Gary Beckman. Hey Gary, you ever heard of the 1st Amendment? You know, Freedom of Speech? Yeah, that one. What did he really say that was so bogus. I've heard worse from baseball players complaining about getting bean-balled in the head.
Besides that, if Dion Phaneuf or any other person in the NHL gotta problem with Sean Avery, then guess what they get to do? Throw Hands!!! They can actually settle that sh*t on the ice! There's tons of players that don't like each other, but they can't do ish about it. Not in hockey, I feel like if hockey let just a couple of hood dudes in the NHL, and it didn't compete with the NFL and NBA, I'd watch it more. Yes, I do watch the NHL now (via Versus network) and I'm a huge Philadelphia Flyers fan.
So Sean Avery's suspended and everyone's mad. Except probably Sean Avery, he's probably cracking up and thinking about all the naughty things he did with Elisha Cuthbert and then Dion Phaneuf kissing her in the mouth. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
