Jim McMahon struggled in his one season with the Chargers, in 1989. At one point, the brash quarterback responded to a question from San Diego reporter T.J. Simers by blowing his nose on him. Simers, now working for the Los Angeles Times, caught up with McMahon at a celebrity golf tournament in July 2010. McMahon told Simers, ""(NFL commissioner Paul) Tagliabue tried kicking me out of the league for that. I told him it was either that or hitting you in the head, and I already had enough problems with cops."
