    You might have scored 5 TDs in one game instead of just 4.

    I’ll bet good money that dump romanticizing “do what you love” falls flat for most, if not all sufferers of CTE. It’s all well and good when you a. don’t have a lick of athleticicism in the first place, but also, b. don’t have a brain that no longer functions.

    The brother saying he thinks his Tyler would want him to continue playing is nuts. He killed himself because his brain turned to mush. I doubt that would be his stance.

    I bet Tyler would do it all over again if it meant playing football still

    I’m sure everyone would sign up for shit for brains in their early twenties, to the point of suicide seeming to be the only option, over and over again.

    You’ve been mood swingy as fuck as of late. It’s a bit worrisome. Hope all is well. If you ever need to reach out, don’t hesitate to slide into a private message.

    This is speculation on your part. You have no idea why he actually killed himself.

    True.

    I imagine having the equivalent of a 65 year old’s brain when you’re in your early 20s isn’t by any means desirable, though.

    Yeah that's why we won't be playing football soon.

    Sadly I've been thinking about this topic a lot lately. It's depressing as hell knowing we have full awareness that we will eventually die.

    Most people allow themselves to forget that for large portions of their life though.

    Which probably increases grief and suffering.

    while I don't necessarily agree philosophically with this, it is giving me some great lines to use next time some t-ball dad at a party starts telling me how I'm missing out on true purpose and fulfillment because we don't want kids. Rock on.

    The #Green Bay Packers drafted Cole Madison last year in the 5th round who was a close friend of his.

    Mysteriously he didn't show up to camp last year and sat out the season dealing with a personal matter. Apparently Hilinski's suicide and CTE diagnosis is the reason for his absence according to a story at the Athletic.
