Wayne Simmonds (alledgedly) calls Sean Avery an anti-gay slur (article)
New York Rangers' Sean Avery says Wayne Simmonds called him homophobic slur - ESPN New York
To those wondering, there is video that seemingly confirms this. I was never a big fan of Simmer, but this cements him as one of my least favorite players in the NHL. Good thing we traded him.

It's funny to see Sean Avery of all people being upset about this after all the things he's been accused of saying in the past.

I don't agree with what Simmonds did, but seriously.. Avery can seem to dish it out, but when the tables are turned, he can't take it?

If you hated every guy who called someone a homophobic slur on the ice, I doubt there'd be anyone left to like. Not saying it's right, but it's not like Simmonds is alone in using that word.

Does everyone want them to be proper when pissed off about something that happened on the ice. Bunch of crybabies saying that Simmonds is no longer a favorite player of theirs?? Really?? I think it ridiculous that people take to heart what is said inside the glass during the game play.......if it was directed towards a fan i can understand but its to an opponent and they are always gonna say whatever they want to say to get under the skin and cause them to take a penalty or get off their game......i mean come on already, this is getting stoopid.
I mean come on......REALLY!
Avery: Gosh darnit, you indecent over aggressive flyer.........go back to school and learn how to be respectful to others!!!!
Simmonds: Gee willickers, you below average hockey player who likes fashion and looks goofy with glasses!!!

you guys are so full of s***.
Simmonds calling Sean Avery a f****t was every bit as intentional as the fan who threw the banana, and being that THAT particular incident happened so recently, you'd think Wayne would use a little bit better judgement. this wasn't a case of s*** said in the heat of the action in a man's game blah blah blah.
c**t, pussy, bitch, etc. etc. there are dozens of insults that could have been hurled Sean's way, and the one Simmonds chose was clearly deliberate given Avery's lifestyle.
i mean, hell, i really like Simmonds and am not particularly a big fan of Sean's. i'm just calling a club a club here.
