For added context:
Hull was convicted in 1987 of assaulting a police officer who intervened in an argument between Hull and then-wife Deborah. A mini-documentary by ESPN in 2002 included his previous wife, Joanne, recounting a fight in which Hull beat her in the head with a steel-heeled shoe, then held her off a balcony in Hawaii.
Hull’s daughter, Michelle, who became a defense lawyer for female abuse victims, also detailed Hull’s history of alcoholism in that documentary.
In 1997, a Russian publication quoted Hull as saying that, ‘‘Hitler had some good ideas,’’ claiming that the Black population was growing too fast and expressing his support for genetic breeding. Hull denied the comments and sued the publication at the time.
"A fool's math" is a perfect phrase to describe all the obituaries that come out and describe some newly-dead, famous, garbage person as "complicated."He was a fantastic hockey player and a horrible human being, and to pretend like one of those is somehow at odds with the other is a fool's math.
