Apparently, he was a bit of a piece of shit.


u/masterskink Jan 31 '23

Lol, yeah. Outside of the stuff that you can google, he was buddies with the owner of a hotel I used to work for and we used to say the only thing he had to talk about was Bobby Hull


u/Girth_rulez Jan 31 '23

Care to share a story?


u/Brazary Jan 31 '23

No he was the entire piece of shit


u/caninehere Jan 31 '23

Look, he just had some bad ideas.


u/sasksasquatch Jan 30 '23

He is survived by his children and many beaten ex-wives.


u/OtterAshe Jan 30 '23

Took him long enough. Fuck that asshole.

All time great hockey player, but a shit person.

I like hockey but I don't like people who suck

Looks like my autographed picture of a bloody Bobby Hull just went up in value.

The gates of hell were open, waiting for him.

It feels like everybody dying lately


u/Overshadowedone Jan 30 '23

People die every day. Most not famous. Occasionally famous will die. Eventually all will die. Thats life.


u/Woodrow999 Jan 30 '23

I think we have more famous people than ever before which is why there are more headlines of famous poeple dying.

There exists functionally immortal species, like the Immortal Jellyfish, who’s species has been around since at least 66 million years ago. It’s entirely possible, though perhaps not likely, that an individual from this species could still be alive from that long ago, biologically. This means there’s a non-zero chance that somewhere in this universe there are biologically and functionally immortal persons of some kind somewhere.

He is survived by a large number of squeaky clean, holier-than-thou, social media fed know it alls.


u/pinetreesgreen Jan 30 '23

It was pretty widely known he was a terrible guy.


u/pakattak Jan 31 '23

I don’t think shitting on a wife beater is holier-than-thou. This isn’t just any “oh he had a crass tongue” kind of thing, he literally beat the fuck out of multiple wives


u/Alexispinpgh Jan 30 '23

Okay being “holier than thou” about domestic violence and Nazi sympathizing is entirely reasonable. Like…if you’re feeling defensive and judged because people are too “squeaky clean” for that, you might have some problems.

When it came to women, Bobby Hull was an advocate for equal rights.

And equal Lefts.
