Let's Get Sean Avery

Sean Avery has been suspended indefinitely for the following remarks:

"I'm really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada. I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds."

With Jarrett Stoll (Rachel Hunter) and Dion Phaneuf (Elisha Cuthbert) dating his former girlfriends, I don't blame Avery. I could blame him for loving slutty white girls, but to each his own. But Sean Avery is a great NHL pest, and right now the NHL needs some attention.

Avery instinctively understands that the NHL, which is trying to attract new viewers, needs to play up conflict and characters within it own ranks if it wants to draw attention. "Tthe NHL does a terrible job of marketing [by not promoting its] villains," he recently told ESPN. "Nobody cares about Jarome Iginla and guys like that, they're just not exciting enough."

The NHL is so retarded.

I actually wanted to watch a Calgary Flames game for once to see what happened, then they suspended him...

No wonder this league is failing in the US.

The NFL has a new criminal or dumbass (thank you Plaxico) every month to keep things interesting.

The NBA has thugs on every team getting into gun fights, fights at strip clubs, making albums...

The MLB even has some scandal with A-Rod and Madonna, the ongoing steroid saga, the Clemens pedophile thing...

The NHL has.....Sean Avery and they keep shutting him down.

"Sloppy seconds"???? Is it really that offensive? Who are they trying to fool? Who are they trying to fool? Is hockey supposed to be a gentleman's sport? SERIOUSLY????
