Bowa Loses Appeal (He Lost It for Me a Long Time Ago)
"It's a joke," Bowa said after the suspension was announced. "The whole thing borders on ridiculous."
No that's not what Larry Bowa had to say about his managerial career. It's what he said about his one-game suspension which was enforced tonight after he lost his appeal.
It does seem silly for Bowa to take his case to Bob Dupuy after the suspension was imposed by Bob Watson. It's not like Bowa has anyone else in his corner like the players do (i.e., the union) when they appeal. Bowa's management and must take his lumps from management.
Think of it this way, it's like you appealing a decision by your boss at work and addressing the appeal to your boss's boss. You're probably not on very firm ground there.
However, if you yelled at a fellow employee at work as Bowa did, you would probably get fired or at the very least have to attend anger management classes. Bowa got the day off to yell at people on his own time. That's not too bad.
