Tell me how you really feel! When you, the reader, read that tweet by Bleacher Reporter’s Mike Freeman, what did you think?
My first response was simple … GTFOH. (Hopefully you know what that means)
But then you start to think about everything we don’t know about CTE, and I’m sure a few players in the league are scared. Now the human side of my brain is working and I’m wondering, if Hernandez, who already fought with demons at a young age could’ve suffered from CTE at some point in his career and now, ultimately lost all battles today when he took his own life in prison.
I have zero sympathy regardless. Hernandez is trash. The only reason for this post is to remind everyone that we really have no clue about the effects of CTE, and if you don’t think this disease could make you hear voices, be paranoid and everything else that was happening to Hernandez when he committed those crimes, then you’re misguided.
