College Football: Why the Fiesta Bowl Does Not Deserve To Be a BCS Bowl
But with the Fiesta Bowl, this is going to rumble.
Avid investors in the stock market are used to hearing stories of people in senior positions doing bad things, but the Fiesta Bowl amused us all when it fired CEO John Junker for improperly reimbursing $46,000 in campaign and federal donations, including $28,000 to the Arizona Republican party.
According to the allegations about Fiesta Bowl bids, not only did bowl officials pressure staff to donate to political parties (although all parties seem to be absolutely clueless as how to sort out Arizona's horrific housing problems, where whole new towns are completely empty) but they also dropped $1,200 on a strip club and 30 large on Junker's birthday party.
Do you think Junker thought when the expenses came up in front of them: "Hey, it was a great party. Of course I'll sign everything off." $30,000 for a birthday party. Are you serious? Was it IN a freakin' strip bar?
What makes us even angrier with the whole Fiesta Bowl thing is that all of this expenditure was done during America's worst recession in years.
We'll see when a result comes out on April 28.
If there's any right in the world, the Fiesta Bowl would be thrown out of the BCS rotation, and a man who really knows how to spend money, Jerry Jones (so, how did the Dallas Cowboys do this year, Jerry?), can get the Cotton Bowl into the rotation.
