Good riddance to trash.


Former NHL star Bobby Hull told a Russian newspaper that Nazis were not without merit, that the black population of the United States was growing too fast and that genetic breeding was a worthy idea.

"Hitler, for example, had some good ideas. He just went a little bit too far," the Hall of Fame player told the English-language Moscow Times.

Hull’s history of off-ice behavior — including rampant allegations of domestic abuse and racism — has overshadowed his impressive on-ice legacy for decades, making his continued ambassadorship a black eye for the organization.

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.

One of a handful of old-timers that definitely would be a star in today's game.

That said: he was also a wife-beating piece of ____!

I knew a Blackhawk player, now deceased, "Pit' Martin, who told me that Bobby threw Joanne through a plate glass window, and when the cops arrived, she was found bloodied on the front lawn.

He was a real *******. Should have been jailed for life

I’m glad that people told the honest story of his life off the ice rather than showering him in praise.
