Sean Avery And Marty Brodeur Are Chirping About Dancing With The Stars

Former bad hockey player Sean Avery participated ever-so-briefly on this season's Dancing With The Stars, getting eliminated after one week. His old nemesis Martin Brodeur had something to say about his performance. So naturally Avery fired right back, and goddamnit here we go again. » 3/27/14 2:06pm 3/27/14 2:06pm

Here Are The Sean Avery Semi-Nude Modeling Photos You Didn't Know You…

Brandon Prust is serving a one-game suspension for a headhunting elbow. Brandon Dubinsky isn't ready to return from injury, nor is Mats Zuccarello. The Rangers need a better option for a fourth line forward tonight than Stu Bickel, who's usually a defenseman. If only they had someone still under contract, perhaps… » 5/21/12 6:40pm 5/21/12 6:40pm

Which Sports Leagues Care If You Call Someone A "Fucking Faggot?"

This here's Colin Clark, a midfielder for the Houston Dynamo. On Friday, Clark was frustrated with a ball boy for not giving him a new ball fast enough.

Did Sean Avery Spit On His Minor League Hockey Coach?

Sean Avery Is Out Of Our Lives Again

Today the Rangers waived Sean Avery for the second time this season. It was a hockey decision: the Rangers needed a forward when they recalled him from Hartford, now they don't. And as John Tortorella somewhat coldly said back in October, "I think we have better players than Sean Avery, plain and simple." At least… » 12/30/11 1:00pm 12/30/11 1:00pm

It Took All Of 16 Seconds For Sean Avery To Get Into A Fight With The…

Calling it a "fight" is a bit misleading—the participants were only assessed two minute roughing minors—but the efficiency by which it was commenced is worth noting, especially since Sean Avery didn't appear to actually start this fight with the Penguins' Tyler Kennedy. (He took a more active part in restarting the… » 11/29/11 8:15pm 11/29/11 8:15pm

A Short, Strange Lesson In NHL Economics, With Professor Sean Avery

Yesterday, Minnesota placed winger Eric Nystrom on waivers. The Wild clearly wanted to move his $1.4 million salary, and any player picked up on waivers gets split between his old and new teams.

Former Teammate Accuses Sean Avery Of Racial Taunts

Alexander Frolov and Sean Avery were teammates in Los Angeles, and again this last season in New York. They're also friends, which makes it all the more surprising that Frolov would volunteer the fun fact that Avery uses racial slurs to try to get under opponents' skins. » 8/01/11 10:40am 8/01/11 10:40am

Why Hockey Has Gone Totally Gay For The Latest Homophobia Debate

Hockey, for a sport that's nominally proactive in areas ranging from replay to concussions, has never been especially progressive. No one expects the openly gay pro athlete, the inevitable big story for the next decade, to come from the NHL. While other leagues have John Amaechi and Billy Bean and Esera Tuaolo, the… » 5/10/11 6:00pm 5/10/11 6:00pm
