As for the intracity series, it failed to survive the bitterness of that game. A year later the Rockford Amateur Athletic Club was founded, using players from both the Irish and the Swedish parts of town. This team represented the whole city of Rockford in games against other localities and the old Badger-AAC rivalry, though far from forgotten, was never again actively fought out.
"That's the sad part about that game," says Enfred Enrickson, who was captain of the Swedes the day Gipp beat them. "It killed that type of football in Rockford."
