Today, Sean Avery proved what I already knew about him: That he has no clue how to interact with human beings, and that he should not be allowed to speak into a microphone.
He said something to the Canadian media that disrepects pretty much everybody. The League, the Flames, the Stars, and the fans. Not to mention Elisha Cuthbert and women in general.
He is making our beloved Dallas Stars the laughing-stock of the entire NHL now. Being last in the league is not the embarrassing part. Having Sean Avery on our team is undoing every compliment the Stars organization has ever gotten about the way it’s run.
Nobody is saying that the Stars are a “class organization” anymore. Including me. As long as we’re associated with Sean Avery, I’m embarrassed.
Kudos to Gary Bettman for suspending him indefinitely. I hope he throws the book at him. I know his buddy, Brett Hull, won’t. He probably thinks it’s cute.
Update: Tom Hicks still has some class.
Update: Mike Heika has Brett Hull’s comment on his blog. Hull is basically saying, “We had a round hole, so we hired a square peg to fill it and told him and told him and told him to act like a round peg. We are stunned to discover he’s a square peg.”
