Rangers news – Sean Avery comments on Milbury “stepping down”
Yesterday, I wrote about Sean Avery not only saying he was right about Mike Milbury but also telling NBC to hire him. Late last night, Avery took to his Instagram again to continue his push.
“It’s official, Mike Milbury will not be returning to the NHL on NBC. Mike has left the bubble and the bubble just got a little bit lighter,” Sean kicked off his rant. “What I should do is go upstairs, put on my suit, and come down as Network Sean.”
Once again, Avery is pushing NBC Exec, Sam Flood to hire him.
