    Sean Avery deserved to get his teeth kicked in and injected with Ebola. All day, every day. Fuck him all the way to the end of the earth.

    Oh, and this story is super believable because we all know how timid and shy Sean Avery was while a player. He can go on TV and blab about "sloppy seconds", call Martin Brodeur a fatty and then stand in front of government officials pretending to care about gay rights, but he can't call out a coach within a decade?

    Dear Internet,
    13 years ago, a relatively frail, much much older man wearing no pads at all and actually a quite fashionable suit kicked me with his Salvatore Ferragamo loafer while I was wearing full on hockey equipment. My feels. #MeToo.


    Fucking bullshit lying scum bag.


    *But that's none of my business Kermit meme.

    Well, it's hard for an outsider to judge the truthfulness of any of these allegations, but it's probably time for pro hockey to have its ass kicked about the conduct of its employees.
    Hopefully that trickles down a few levels and we start teaching young men more realistic standards of conduct.

    I have no no interest in exposing my kids to hockey on any level. It's a cultural cess pool.

    I didn't have to make that choice with my kids, but I pretty much agree.

    Read his autobiography. It explains a lot of his behavior. It was his way of getting attention as a mediocre athlete and overselling himself. The fact that he was interested in things different from his peers made him a bit of an outsider.

    I’m sure the truth is somewhere in between, but kudos for not being your typical journeyman with nothing left to show for at the end of his career.

    There's ups and downs to it as with any sport, but most people I know who played lives are richer because of it. Calling it a cultural cess pool is a bit much.. most NHL players are the classiest pro athletes you will find.

    I've seen a show where they go over this same theme and perhaps a portion of that is true. I still kind of don't care, though. His conduct on the ice and in the uniform was repulsive and unacceptable. There are plenty of other players who struggled to make the cut and didn't choose his path when they could have.
    His true self chose to create that persona (if we choose to believe that story) and that leaves blood on his hands.

    The door has been opened.
    Might as well shut down the league at this point.

    Agree with an earlier point that team sports teach kids a lot more than the sport itself and one takes that into adulthood.

    pro athletes are a pretty low bar. Yea, not a lot of wife beaters in the NHL isn't something to really brag about lol.

    No kidding.

    Some kids these days could really benefit from some health sports competitions, some losing, learning about teams and some good coaches mentoring them. All of which hockey does an excellent job of teaching.

    Peters is a racist, Babcock is mean and Crawford kicked some players asses (literally) and all of a sudden organized hockey is the devil?

    Lets ban all drama and music classes too after hearing about all the entertainment industries bullshit.

    Begin Devils Advocate:
    White hockey moms with giant sunglasses in gianter SUV's are a pretty vicious breed. There's a lot of clique BS in hockey.
    /Devil's advocate

    I also believe that this is easily mitigated. Just sayin.

    I'm actually starting to see the other side of things in that we all in general shouldn't be so sensitive.... that being said, there's still no excuse for using the N word in 2009, so fuck Bill Peters.

    Oh, totally. But, the cultural significance of hockey in Canada takes that to a higher level. Atom AAA is an abortion for delusional parents thinking their 9yo puke stain is their meal ticket. It's amazing.
    But again - since most players are nowhere near gifted, the experience can have a lot to offer.
    Except for the tournament's. Fuck those completely. Yeah, so I need to go to Estevan, Sask then Anchorage, Alaska before Gold River, BC because there's not enough kids in a city with a million people in it for them to play??! Eat shit.
    LoL!

    We went to Banff for a Timbit tournament last year and it was the highlight of my sons whole year... it was more about the fun with friends and going to the pool than what happened on the ice...

    Out of town tournaments are what the kids loved the most. The hockey was usually secondary to the overall experience, of being in a hotel with all your teammates, having team dinners etc.Ask any kid who played, those are usually the experiences that stick.

    bahahah beat me too it.

    I agree 100%.

    I coached Midget AA for a few years, before I had my own kids, and the highlight for every year was "Where are we going this year for our tournament".
