Was Sean Avery's Dancing with the Stars elimination a question of votes – or vengeance?

After last week's shocking double elimination, which sent the former hockey pro and partner Karina Smirnoff packing, Avery says it was a disagreement with producer Conrad Green – not his dance technique – that caused his early exit.

"I will tell everyone on #GMA tomorrow why i was voted off ... my partner @Karina_Smirnoff is AMAZING," he Tweeted March 24, after the duo was eliminated.

The following morning Avery, 33, appeared on Good Morning America with Smirnoff, 36, and hinted that a dispute with a producer may have been the real reason for his departure from the show in only its second week of competition.
