Not to mention that the latter was done by a fan. The players should be allowed say whatever they want to each other. When fans get involved, that is when it becomes different. Simmonds calling a fan a *** or a fan calling a player a ****** is a lot different in my opinion than two professionals in the heat of a game saying a few bad words. Even if Avery called Simmonds a ****** I don't think its a big deal. Just another way to get him off his game.
