Sean Avery, victim

This is just wrong. Sean Avery's ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert, appears to be sleeping her way around the National Hockey League. Avery made a derogatory reference to this fact -- "it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds" -- and that one remark has now resulted in Avery being dropped by the Dallas Stars.

Is it Avery's fault that Elisha puts the "ho" in "hockey"? First it was Mike Komisarek, now it's Dion Phaneuf and next, for all we know, she'll be doing the Zamboni driver. And what was Avery's crime? That he used the term "sloppy seconds"? Maybe he would still have his job if he'd just called her an "ice slut."

And please: Hockey fans who find "sloppy seconds" offensive? Hockey fans are among the most barbarous sports fans on the planet. They make English soccer hooligans look civilized by comparison. NASCAR fans are aristocratic dandies compared to your typical hockey fan.

That Avery should have lost his job over this is absurd. And you know why it happened? Because the NHL commissioner thinks he's got a shot at Elisha Cuthbert. He may be right.


  1. As a hockey fan, I should be offended by your comparison to NASCAR, but am not! As far as the point of the post, of course Avery should not have been dropped by the Stars. It is political correctness on steroids! BTW, did you know that the NFL players union filed a grivance on behalf of Plaxico Buress? And, I am certain that the NFL will let dog killer Michael Vick back in the leagues good graces!

  2. Condemning retaliatory action against offensive sexual innuendoes is right-wing PC. Thou shalt never say anything bad about the use of offensive anti-female remarks. Ever hear of basic decency?
