Josh Luchs Shows the Dark Side of the Industry
The point of a documentary is not only to show the nice, often-romanticized version of a story. “The Dotted Line” airing October 11th on ESPN goes into the world of sports agents; that means the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In this case, the ugly is the rampant cheating done by agents in college sports. The poster boy for this scandalous behavior is Josh Luchs, a former NFL agent who confessed to a world of cheating in his 2010 tell all Sports Illustrated interview. He spoke about giving players cash, with the agreement that the athlete would one day sign with him.
In the film, he talks about this dark side of the industry and the people and players that get swept up into the frenzy.
The most telling part of his story takes place when he takes his flashy Mercedes into the “other entrance” of UCLA’s campus. This takes him right up to the field and the locker room, where he had access to any player that walked back and forth.
In this scene, you can see his disgust for the system and how it can be perceived that the universities need to be doing a better job regulating the agents.
Make sure to catch this story and the entire documentary, airing October 11th, 8 p.m. on ESPN.
