I'm seriously sick of his act. He is beyond gutless. He's the type of player that would play the game a whole lot differently if they got rid of the instigator rule. He's a chicken ****.
I'm glad I'm not the only one.
I'm all for agitators, but even a guy like Avery will answer the bell once in a while. Ott spears, slashes, and pops everyone from behind in a scrum, but he won't venture near anyone that's thrown a punch before when the refs aren't in the way. Otherwise, he'll go after guys like Drewiske and Thornton (but at least Joe Thornton has size, I suppose).
It's shameful, and I'm baffled that he doesn't get more flak, but I guess folks will say he's doing his job if I'm pissed, etc.
