Why is Avery so hated?

What does he do and say that makes other players hate him so much.
I no he's a pest but the Thrashers genuinely hate him with such a passion.
He was voted by the players the most overrated player in the league which is ludicrous, that should go for players that people consider good but really aren't not Avery who responded " I never heard anyone ever say I was good, Shane Doan should be on that list"
So what is it about him?

Also, he was a much bigger ****** in LA. I remember either early this year or last season he made the biggest dive/flop after skating by Jagr and got called for it. There's a youtube of it around somewhere, but he's falling down and all of the sudden he flops backwards like a fish out of water.

See also his comments about French Canadiens and general immaturity. He's kept his lid on since coming over here, which is a very good thing.

Guys, let's keep it on topic please. And that certainly does not include anything to do with Justin Timberlake.

Thanks.

pests annoy. being annoyed get frustrating (unless you are a cow). frustration leads to anger. Anger is directed toward the pest.

Avery is a very good pest...

(similar question: Why is Darcy Tucker so hated?)

I've been glad he's kept mostly to playing the game and getting under opponents' skins ON the ice as a Ranger. He apparently chilled out (relatively) even in LA this season, but I think a large part of it is that he feels free to play his game as a Ranger, so doesn't need to act up as much.

I have to admit, I've been dying to find out what he's been saying to the Atlanta players that gets them so riled up, I haven't seen him physically DO anything much, so I'm guessing that he's mouthing off. Whatever it is, it's sure as hell working!

he's hated because he's annoying. he's always yapping at someone, and he must be really witty to get the reactions he does. and unlike Ruutu and other pests that are sucky players, it's frustrating to see him name on the scoresheet as often as it is.

and for quotes like this

Quote:
Avery told the Canadian sports television network that he thought the Coyotes player delivered a "clean hit." He added: "I think it was typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not back anything up.
"I'd think if a guy like Brett Hull was coming up the middle, somebody probably wouldn't have stepped up and hit him, but like I said, a typical move from a guy wearing a visor that certainly doesn't like to get scratched at all."

I also think it has to do with the fact that he can actually play. His skill is better than he's given credit for. It's also overshadowed by the other things he does.

I think fans hate him because of the new Avery. Most fans laughed at the Rangers for trading for the "LA Kings Avery" because thet assumed the Rangers would get the "LA Kings Avery". When the new Avery arrived on the league these fans were pissed that their team didn't trade for him, especially since he didn't cost much.

I'll take a diver and a loudmouth any day over a serial submarine-hitter like Tucker. I'll admit I hated Avery before he was a Ranger (no longer), but I'll always feel comfortable hating Tucker.

...and I'd French kiss Tucker before I'd shake Brian Marchment's hand.

i wish there was some way to hold you to that! Tucker's response would be priceless.

I like Tucker. But i think Avery is more of an impact player...and without a doubt since coming to the Rangers.

Is this a question that really needs to be asked? I mean....you've watched him play right?

I used to watch Steve Webb play for the Isles every night and loved him, but I knew why other teams hated him.

That's EXACTLY why I hate Tucker. Because he's that dirty. He'd injure people.

I don't know if Avery has done similar things as Tucker, but at least he hasn't purposefully injured anybody.

The opposition fears Avery about what he could do. Then the fear turns to anger. They grow angry and start to hate him and hate, as we all know, leads to suffering. Most likely with both parties.

I think the reason why so many players dislike him is a combination of few things. He is a pest but also delivers some cheap shots from time to time. However, he doesn't stop when the game ends like most similar type of players. He sometimes says somethink stupid to the media. Players don't like when a fellow player says something stupid intentionally to the media and by doing so he doesn't actually promote the game.

This is how I think it is... For the record, I dislike the guy. Even if plays for the Rangers.

Avery is the kind of guy you can only love if he is on your team. Sort of like Kaspar. I hate him until he became a Ranger.

I wonder if Jagr and Avery talked about that hilarious dive and what they said to each other about it. Gotta be money whatever they said now especially since they are teammates.

yes, I have watched him play, I just would love to know what he says to those Atlanta Thrashers that gets them so riled up.
You would think these professional athletes have heard it all through the years, yet Avery is so great at getting under their skin
