Awful stuff. RIP.
Just saw. Terrible.
Perhaps I'm being too sensitive but I don't like the use of the word demise there. Not like he declared bankruptcy or something.
He started a few games right?
Terrible to hear
yeah demise seemed like a weird choice, but
Agreed. Strange word to use there.
Yes he just started on Dec. 28 in their bowl loss to Michigan State.
awful stuff though. so sad
And I thought the same thing about that tweet. She could do better than that.
That’s actually the proper usage. Definition #1 is a person’s death.
Demise seems harsh because of the way we use the word, but it is the literal definition of the word. "A persons death."
Yea I know the definition. Why not just say death?
Sad shit. Awful
Absolutely awful. Mental health affects everyone no matter race, socioeconomic status, etc. Wish this had a better outcome
I wonder if there were any circumstances surrounding it or just severe depression
“Death” is a more blunt/less sensitive way of saying it. Seems odd that people take issue with the proper use of a word because people often use it improperly.
have you met ESPN's coverage of a story like this?
Not gonna argue about the wording anymore because it's pointless when considering the big picture here. Awful for the kid and his family :(
hopefully this will speed up the death of a cruel sport like football
Ugh, that's terrible. Going to be a really tough time for anyone that was close to him. I dealt with this twice and it was such a dark time for me. Always thinking if I could have done something different, how did I not see it, etc. Hope they get those kids people to talk to.
Anyone know if he lived alone or with other players on the team?
Yeah, I guess it just felt off to me in that situation. As noted above, maybe I'm just so accustomed to seeing it used improperly that it struck me as odd.
Oh. I was under the impression that some races were impervious to suicide. Thanks.
Insane story without even knowing any details. Starting Qb at a power 5 school, a dream for thousands of kids. Just feels like the details are going to be really sad.
Score one for fuckfly
It can’t be said enough.
We talk a lot of shit in here, but don’t be afraid to reach out. If somebody reaches out to you, listen.
Don’t ever be the guy to not try to help, even if that means to pass them on to somebody that can do a better job. Please don’t ever be a dick about the situation, depression is real and it’s brutal. You aren’t helping anybody being a macho asshole.
Sadly, success can be just as scary as failure for some people. Expectations and pressure.
I guess. Suicide obviously isn't race-based. This isn't about this, though, so I'll certainly drop it.
just three letters
I doubt it. Would be wild.
Correct you are and thanks
Holy shit that's awful. Prayers for his family
Surely not since he was a QB
goddamnit, this is so depressing, fuck, dude was only 21, spring semester started 8 days ago, jfc.
This is so sad man
allegedly a teammate found the body, really feel bad for wsu/pullman here, really small, tight knit community, just started spring semester, fuck.
Looks like the Pullman Police aren’t the only ones looking into the matter
One of the toughest parts about dealing with depression is that people with it are usually very good at putting on a face when they're in social situations. Often times hard to have any inkling unless youre close with them and sometimes not even then. Sucks.
Extremely sad. Saw a tweet about how he walked his mom back to her hotel after a 3 OT win that he led his team to and he was so happy.
Life is hard sometimes. Reach out to friends/family if you're having dark thoughts.
"Pullman PD has confirmed Tyler Hillinski's passing" is a lot worse
