During the Chicago Bears 1985-86 Super Bowl championship season, Jim McMahon became notorious for his headbands after the league fined him for displaying an Adidas logo in violation of rules that prohibited players from displaying corporate logos. During the Super Bowl, the "funky QB" wore a headband with the phrase POW-MIA to raise awareness of prisoners of war and "JDF-CURE" for juvenile diabetes.
