What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Guest Column: Joe McGrath on the International Bowl


Editor’s Note: Mr. McGrath has long and storied history in the management of professional sports franchises, most notably as the general manager of the Charlestown Chiefs of the now-defunct Federal League.

First of all, I want to say that stuff Reggie Dunlop was spreading about me wearing dresses is a bunch of bunk. He’s been peddling that story for years, ever since our days together back in Charlestown. He’s never forgiven me for making those boys do those fashion shows.

You can ask  the guys who were running the International Bowl. You gotta generate revenue, otherwise you are stuck recycling jockstraps, or worse yet going belly-up all together. Hell, it’s easy to question the wisdom of having a bowl game in Toronto in December. It’s even easier to wonder why anybody would care about a MAC vs. Big East match-up. You can even whine about the economy all you want. Perhaps a few more fashion shows and maybe the International Bowl might still exist.

Sure, it was a low-rent bowl game. But those mopes at ESPN got fifty channels they need to fill with something.  These guys had TV money and a crowd of 40,000. Shit, I couldn’t get that kind of gate in the Federal League if I gave away hookers and bourbon with each ticket. We still managed to put on more than four goddamn games, and they somehow managed to blow it.  They must have been terrible masturbators.

It is really simple. You have to spend less than you earn. If you have to recycle some jocks or sell a bus here and there, so be it. Don’t be afraid as a front-office type to offer inspirational words to players. In other words, do whatever you have to do so you can bank those dimes, because there won’t always be the rumor of a new owner in Florida.

Reggie Goddamn Dunlop…
