Sean Avery chased Mike Milbury in disgrace: ‘I told you so!’

Sean Avery throws his ‘peacock’ hat in the ring to replace Mike Milbury.

The former Ranger said he was over the curve in the appeal that Milbury was fired from NBC Sports two weeks ago after the color commentator suggested that playoff hockey should go to a marathon after a three-on-three overtime and a shootout to combat overtime. Now, with Milbury again under fire for suggesting that women were a distraction for hockey players, Avery comes in once again.

‘Look, I will not say that I told you so. I’m not that type of man, but I’ve told you that, “Avery said Friday in a series of posts on Instagram story while holding his young son Nash.”[Executive producer and president, production of NBC & NBCSN] Sam Flood, NHL on NBC, just picked up the phone and called me. I’m a rating machine, OK? This is what people want. Do not feel bad for calling me, it’s good. I’ll get in there, I’ll save the day.

“Mike Milbury? Ha ha. Have got. I told you two weeks ago. I have had Mike Milbury trending for two weeks. And now trending for the wrong reasons. That’s your employee. You are the peacock network. That’s a great network. I’ll put on a peacock hat. I will do it for free. I’ll blow the reviews through the f – king roof. I will bring him with me. My sword jar, (Avery’s baby son) Nash, the whole deal. Let’s get it. What do you want? You do not even have to give me a delay of five seconds, OK? ”

Avery then posted a series of clips from the Flyers-Canadiens playoff game with his own analysis, which apparently provided a practice role to go with his rant of a cover letter. However, he may need that five-second delay because he dropped a few F-bombs during his commentary.

Of course, Avery has his own controversial past on and off the ice. In 2019, he was arrested on charges of felony criminal mischief for proving the side of the driver of a car with his scooter. In 2015, he was arrested in Southampton for proving that he threw objects at speeding cars while carrying police equipment on prescription. During his playing career, he was once stopped for six games to tell reporters how it “became like a normal thing in the NHL for boys to fall in love at my sneaky seconds,” referring to Flames defender Dion Phaneuf dating A’s ex -friend, Elisa Cuthbert.

NBC Sports, meanwhile, has not said whether it intends to discipline Milbury for his comments, although he was not on the call Friday night for the Canadiens Flyers game. The NHL condemned his remark – “Not even women here for disturbing your concentration,” Milbury said of the NHL bubble – as “insensitive and insulting.”
