Sean Avery Suspended For "Sloppy Seconds" Remark

by at . Comments

The NHL sucks.

We apologize to its 12 fans, but don't even try defending this logic (it's even sillier than putting hockey franchises in Arizona, Texas and Florida):

The league allows fights - serious, punch-the-hell-out-of-the-other-guy fights - with only five-minute penalties assessed to the participants.

But call your opponent's girlfriend your "sloppy seconds," well, don't even think about that! The NHL draws the line there. Enjoy your next strike, morons.

Yes, the NHL suspended one of its most notorious players, Sean Avery of the Dallas Stars, for talking trash to the new player dating his ex-girlfriend.

His ex, of course, is actress of Elisha Cuthbert.

Complex Cuthbert

Elisha Cuthbert used to date Sean Avery. And be kind of famous.

Cuthbert's new boyfriend, Dion Phaneuf, plays for the Calgary Flames - and during a practice session in Calgary this week, Sean Avery said the following:

"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," he told the media.

"I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight."

Avery is suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf have not commented.


Twelve fans? You must be devoted to NASCAR then...Sean Avery isn't "notorious" he is a minor player on an inconsequential team and doesn't even deserve the time or attention he's getting here or anywhere else in the media, let alone his hockey "career".


Sean Avery SUMMONED the media to make that comment. He deserves what he got...and yes, the writer of this article has no idea what they are talking about. If the guy wasn't making tons of money as a hockey player, he'd probably be in jail. He has serious issues.


Misty, Couldn't have said it better about the author of this article. It "sucks". She is probably one of Avery's sloppy seconds.


come to philly and say that! I dare you...


Well Said Misty! As for Avery, I can't stand him. He is bad for the sport. I hope they come down hard on him!


My only comment to this is: Before bashing an entire sport (as well as the fans who watch and the players in it), do some minor reasearch into the history of that sport in an attempt to understand WHY they have the rules that they do. Otherwise...the article in of itself will simply..."suck". "...serious, punch-the-hell-out-of-the-other-guy fights - with only five-minute penalties assessed to the participants." Really? The above statement only proves the author has no clue about the sport. There ARE "game misconducts" that are issued, as well as SUSPENSIONS. Seriously, the author should stick to writing fluff about Hollywood has-beens 'cause apparently, that's all the author's mental acuity can handle.
