Avery To Blake: HaHa You Have Cancer...Or Something Like That...

For Those of you who have not yet heard about the battle between Sean Avery and Darcy Tucker during the pre-game skate on Saturday night let me throw a few notes at you...

Yesterday Howard Berger of the Fan 590 reported that a player in the Rangers' dressing room told him Avery incited the initial jawing session when he directed a comment at Blake about his medical condition...For those of you under a rock Jason Blake has a (treatable) form of cancer known as chronic myelogenous leukemia.
Berger reported Avery's teammate wanted to "strangle" the pesky winger once he heard what was said. Neither Blake nor Tucker would comment on the words that were exchanged on the ice.

NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell has ordered Avery to meet with him this week to explain himself

For once Darcy Tucker actually looks like the classy one..."I'm not going to get into what was said and what was not said. This is out of our hands now and we'll stay out of it," said Tucker.

During this time Avery has been unavailable for comment...So after 72 hours I'm jumping back off the wagon...Avery is a total fucking douche...It's unbelievable that some one even that juvenile would go as low as making fun of a guy for having cancer...FUCKIN' CANCER!...unreal...

Hopefully the league will punish Avery for this mess and he grows a pair of stones and apologizes to Blake...It's just so hard to wrap my head around the fact that a grown man could be so mentally retarded as to say something like that to a person who is ill...whatever...

You jackass. In the same sentence you criticize Avery for attacking someone with an illness while calling him mentally retarded.
Darcy Tucker should beat your ass.

There is a large difference between calling someone mentally retarded who is just an ass and calling someone mentally retarded who actually has a learning disability...Kind of like saying Bryan McCabe is the cancer of the leafs defense (that's okay). Calling Blake the Leafs cancer...that's just unacceptable...I would never attack someone for their disabilities...that’s just wrong...
