If you don't like Avery, that's fine but you're choice to dislike doesn't make you a holier person than all the fans who did like him. And nothing Avery did even came close to approaching what Bertuzzi did. There's a big difference between mouthing off on the ice and physically assaulting another player.
Who's outraged?

And I did like Avery, but felt his thunder had fizzled. Don't put words in my mouth.

And when the hell did I compare Avery's antics to Bertuzzi? Reading comprehension. The purpose of that was to demonstrate how fans can become emotionally attached to what players say and do on the ice.
