Guess this almost guarantees we will not be able to trade him?

There's like two of those posts that clearly says he's faking it (whether or not they're joking I have no idea). The rest you just interpreted it that way to fit your argument.

Worrying that the injury might keep the Flyers from buying Briere out in the offseason is hardly disrespectful.

The rest of it just seems intelligible in the sense of "what-else-can-go-wrong?"
"It also assumes that Danny does not decide to block a buyout by claiming that he still has headaches, etc." Insinuates that he would fake an injury to stop a buyout.

"I think he read the (hopeful) rumors and suddenly got a headache ...." Same as above. That's just as bad as wishing an injury on someone IMO.

It also insinuates that he genuinely had a concussion in the first place.

Or, perhaps, read in context.

Get well by the offseason, Danny. We need to buy you out.

Apparently I'm not the only one interperet it as such, as multiple people have said the same thing. How else shall I interperet it?

ok...? We all know he has a concussion, you are saying that he would continue to fake an injury to get out of being bought out and to hurt the organization.

I don't understand how that conversation put in context helps you at all, the poster you are quoting says the same thing I am, and through all of those posts you continue to say that he would fake an injury to avoid being bought out.

It's whatever man obviously you feel that I've wrongly accused you of something when its clear as day what you typed or didn't. I called out the people I wanted to and stated my opinion, I'm not going to blow this up anymore then I already have.

Basically, all I am suggesting is this: if I am Briere, and I am not 100 percent certain that I am physically fine, I might be inclined to try to block a buy-out if I have the opportunity to do so. My premise is that he is legitimately and genuinely hurt now, and remains so through the rest of the season. If that's the case, why is it so hard to believe that he wouldn't immediately sign off on a buyout?

Of course, if he comes back and plays this season, none of this is an issue. I was simply talking about a situation where he's out for the next few months. If he's not well enough to play, then I'd think he may not be well enough to be bought out either.

There's three other people agreeing with you. One posted the same post in two different threads. I think all four of you's are being overly sensitive and seeing things how you's want to see them. A lot of those examples you posted are really grey area.

No one with a brain thinks Briere is faking now (NMC). No one with a brain would think he would fake a concussion in the offseason (it is clearly in his material interest to be bought out--$3.5 + whatever he can make in 2013-2014 + 2014-2015).

There is a small space where the team could believe that he is fine, and Danny not. That's the grey area I was alluding to. I think anyone who has had a concussion probably gets that.

Why fake it? He has a NMC. There's no reason to fake it.

-13 career in Philly regular season
-8 career in Philly playoffs

Pretty bad numbers even when you consider that he plays easy minutes. Goal scorer that can't play defense so hardly "great".

Idk why anyone would believe he's faking?

1. He has a NMC and can veto any sort of trade if he desires to

2. If he's amnestied, he still gets paid.

3. The team dr.s aren't morons, they'd realize he doesn't actually have a concussion after they run tests.

What motive does he have to fake an injury?

I believe those are Briere's +/- numbers (in the playoffs).

For what, so we can watch Briere score a couple of more goals while being quite possibly the worst defensive forward in the entire NHL?
Did I say this? I said he would be better there, not that we should make him play there.

2010-2011 doesn't mean jack right now.

You perceive the comments as "hate" when really they are just comments on how others perceive his value vs. cap hit.

No, they are definitely hate comments.

Agree overall, but, again, it isn't a matter of "faking" concussion symptoms later. The persist, often in ways that are difficult to definitely diagnose or dismiss.

In other words, some of their tests might show no linger signs, while other information (namely, that provided by Briere himself) would continue to point to an injury. Briere wouldn't have to be lying or faking to believe he is still suffering symptoms, even if the team doctors said otherwise.

lol. you do realize that +/- is one of the most useless stats right? basing a players entire worth on that is incredibly dumb. it's a team game.
