If this is a troll account or a hoax, it's one of the most elaborate attempts I've ever seen. And I doubt anyone would ever go to this trouble to pretend to be Danny Briere's neighbor.
Quite frankly, I appreciate cdugan sharing these nuggets with us and I hope that he continues to do so. It's fascinating to learn what actually goes down behind the scenes.
There's no real harm in it either because these details will never get to an actual reporter because nobody trusts inside sources that post on hfboards. Plus, we all know TimmyP and co. are too lazy to track down actual inside sources
it's easier to just make stuff up.
I'm not doubting who the identity of who the kid is making the posts or whether or not he lives near or knows Briere or his family. What I am doubting is that Briere himself or his kids would tell people in the neighborhood stuff like that. I suppose I could be wrong, but it would seem odd to me that the player himself or their family would share these seemingly private details with the neighborhood. If they are close friends, I suppose it would be more likely, but if they were close friends I wouldn't expect the other party to run and post it on the internet. Maybe I'm just being too skeptical.
Also you mentioned that this kid is in college, what is he doing hanging around Briere's kids...aren't they like 13? Haha.
