I might be reading too much into this but my brows were definitely raised while reading it.
1. Who cares if he was gay? (Besides you, of course)
2. Restrictions - Torts wouldn't let him play 'his' game. That's what I took from the article.

Avery was on a leash. Not saying it was justified or not, but he didn't have the same amount of freedom from when he joined the team.

Still, one of the most overrated players that rocked our jersey in a long, long time. I was an Avery fan until his effectiveness cooled off.
