Video: Danny Briere talks fondly of oft-maligned Philly fans

Dec 12, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

The Flyers have been playing some awful hockey as of late and after finishing off their road trip by letting the Bears put up a touchdown on them in Chicago last night they’re back in Philadelphia and hosting a familiar baby face this evening. Danny Briere returns to play at the Wells Fargo Center tonight and he spoke with the Philly media this afternoon and was very effusive in his praise of Philly fans.

Heck, the Flyers aren’t very good so might as well pat ourselves on the back a little via some Briere praise.

In the video above you can listen to Danny speak fondly of the Philly fans that cheered him in the past and below you can watch him discuss being unsure of what kind of crowd reaction he’ll get this evening. It should be a positive one, fyi.

    Danny Briere is a waste of time. One of the worst signings of the Holmgren era. Led us to zero cups and had a negative +/- for his whole flyers career. I wish him no luck and dont buy one cyllable of his fraudulent love for us. The guy’s a prick.

      There are losers, and then there’s you. Did you just move into the area, or more likely just playing troll-y mcTroll out of boredom? C’mon amp it up, you can pick a better soft target than Briere.

      And there’s a site called CB made just for you, check it out.

        There are losers, then theres me, and under that is you–he who feeds the trolly mctrolls (thats Mr. MCtroll to you). Did you just discover the internet or are you actually convinced that you can reason with trolls? Moreso, are you actually convinced that responding to inane ramblings of idiots makes you less of a loser than said idiots?

        Why dont you head over to CB? With all my McTroll realatives over there, youll have tons of people to tell how much of a winner you are by conversing with idiots. You enjoy. SMELLY, OUT!

        Gotcha Chip. So you’re saying your schtick is to act the prototypical hard-boiled cynical Philly Phan to get folks agitated enough to hit the ‘thumby down’ button? OK that’s cool, to each their own. Guess we’re on the same side after all. So what do you really think of Briere’s Philly playoff history?

        Mmmmmmm I love when people feed me. And since you asked, Briere is one of the worst pieces of filth to cum through this town in a very long time and I hope he contracts HIV.

    Class act all the way. Briere gave everything he had to this organization and team while he was here and he rightly deserved that standing O tonight. I am proud to be a philly fan tonight for the love they showed him at the game.
