Charlie McAvoy States a Controversial Comment Towards NHL Reporter

SEP 13, 2023   |   BY AUSTIN SABOURIN
During a recent interview with ESPN NHL columnist Greg Wyshynski, Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy didn't hold back when discussing his loyalty to his roots in New York and his disdain for the New York Jets.

Despite being a dedicated supporter of Boston sports teams like many other pro athletes in the city, McAvoy remains a diehard New York Giants fan, stemming from his Jericho, New York origins. His allegiance to the Giants, despite playing for the Bruins in Boston, is a testament to his unwavering hometown pride. And while some may raise an eyebrow at his choice, there's one thing that both McAvoy and Boston sports fans can agree on: their mutual dislike for the Jets.

Speaking to Wyshynski during the NHL/NHLPA media tour in Las Vegas, McAvoy didn't shy away from discussing the Giants' unfortunate season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He expressed the heartbreak felt by Giants fans, admitting,

"That's the kind of loss that breaks you. You're like, 'Should we even be in this league?'"





But McAvoy had some choice words for the Jets, especially given their recent setback. The Jets lost star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a season-ending injury, leaving them with Zach Wilson as the new quarterback. McAvoy, like many Patriots fans, sees this as an opportunity for New England in the AFC East.

While nobody wishes injury upon a rival, the Jets' quarterback situation has ignited hope among Patriots fans. McAvoy's candid remarks highlight the fierce rivalry and passion that fuel NFL fandom.

As for McAvoy's presence in Boston, he continues to attend New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, and Boston Celtics games whenever he can fit them into his schedule. His commitment to supporting the local teams is unwavering, even as he maintains his allegiance to the Giants.
