Published in November, this ebook short presents exclusive new information on the February 2011 suicide of former pro football star Dave Duerson. Author Irvin Muchnick also discusses how the Duerson scenario bolsters the argument that the National Football League’s retirement and disability plan board, on which Duerson sat, should reopen all rejected disability claims on which Duerson had deliberated.

‘OUT OF MY HEAD: MY LIFE IN AND OUT OF FOOTBALL’ by George Visger
George Visger was a defensive tackle on the San Francisco 49ers whose NFL career was cut short by a traumatic brain injury, but who has gone on to lead an inspiring life and spearhead advocacy of retired and disabled NFL players’ issues. Visger nearly died from hydrocephalus (“water on the brain”) months after the 49ers’ first Super Bowl championship in 1982, and he has undergone a total of nine brain surgeries to maintain the shunt implanted in his brain, which caused him to lose short-term memory. Despite the disability, Visger – who never received an NFL pension or disability benefit – became an environmental consultant on large construction projects and has made the case for concussion-maimed athletes before Congress and in the courts.
George Visger’s OUT OF MY HEAD will be published in February, just prior to the Super Bowl – price and other details to be announced.
