UPDATE: On Thursday, Avery publicly apologized saying, "I would like to sincerely apologize for my off-color remarks to the press yesterday from Calgary ... I should not have made those comments and I recognize that they were inappropriate ... It was a bad attempt to build excitement for the game, but I am now acutely aware of how hurtful my actions were. I caused unnecessary embarrassment to my peers as well as people I have been close with in the past." On Friday the league suspended him for six games. NHL commissioner, Gary Bettman said, "Sean had been warned over the last year that he was getting close to the line too many times." 

Sean Avery and Elisha Cuthbert

Dallas Stars forward Sean Avery called a press conference to comment about his ex-girlfriend and actress Elisha Cuthbert's relationship with fellow NHL player Dion Phaneuf. What did he say to get him in such hot water?

"I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada ... I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight." Then he walked off. Nice!

The NHL said that his use of the term "sloppy seconds" crossed the line. Avery is famously disliked in the league and is now becoming more famous for his off-the-ice antics like partying and working in fashion (he's a Vogue intern).

Do you think the term is suspension-worthy?

What Avery said was extremely offensive and he should be suspended without pay and reprimanded at the least. What I find even more offensive is the list of offensive words that are attached to this article with pictures of women who the author of this article apparently feels are examples of these terribly offensive words!!! I would think that a site for moms would offer articles that support and encourage women … NOT insult them and tear them down!!!
SHAME ON YOU MomLogic for posting this TERRIBLY OFFENSIVE list!!!!! — AK Mom

I don’t know why he’d call a press conference to make that (‘sloppy seconds’) comment, so I’m guessing that’s why the NHL suspended him?

As for the list:
I totally cracked up!

I’d replace ‘Baby Bump’ with ‘Sloppy Seconds.’

Maybe with a photo of Elisha Cuthbert.

Oh c’mon, I’m joking! (about the photo.)

Oh my goodness, I read Ak Mom’s comment and thought she was being ridiculous…until I actually looked through the photos myself. Those were horrible things to post!!! What was the purpose of that?! I’m going to have to agree, shame on you MomLogic. I’m in total shock.
