Jim McMahon got another rousing ovation in Chicago.
He has opened up about his struggles with early onset dementia and suicidal thoughts, which he believes stem from the beating he absorbed through football. The recognition comes at a time when he's going nose to nose with the league.
To that, he says, he has "never had a problem messing with the NFL."
