Interviews with Jim McMahon and Richard Dent after star players say they were fed drugs to play through serious injuries and mask there pain.
It has been known at least since September 2012 that Jim McMahon has dementia. In an interview with Fox affiliate WFLD-TV, aired in September 2012, the 53-year-old McMahon says he knows where he’s going when in an airport. But when he meets people, “I’m asking two minutes later, ‘Who was that?’
McMahon said he suffered four concussions while playing. He also said he suffered a broken neck that he says NFL doctors never told him about. He said after being slammed by the defense, team doctors generally would ask him how he felt and whether he could follow a finger with his eyes — saying that’s all they did in those days.
McMahon said regarding trainers and doctors, “They’d ask you questions, basic questions. ‘Where are you, what day is it?’ Stuff like that. And if you were able to answer that and seem like you were OK, they would let you back in.” He said they would give you and aspirin, and you could take it immediately or tape it to your helmet and take it later.
