Avery had expressed in the context of the affair to calgary's head coach Bill Peters, who resigned on Friday, after it became known that he humiliated the players, racist insults and physically attacked.
Avery unleashed his narrative but something, which he had not intended. Via Social media he wrote to the suspension of Crawford's on Twitter: "It was within his rights to kick me in the butt. He would be able to do even harder. I deserved it. I loved Crow. He is my second favorite NHL Coach." But by then it was already too late.
