Of the nest, Rosell, Two sides of the same coin

Of the nest, Rosell, Two sides of the same coin

Curious this 23 from January. On the one hand it has been known that 33 presidents of professional football (among them all the First team except Betis, Malaga and Athletic) Together with Ángel María Villar and Javier Tebas they have signed a document in support of Del Nido so that he can be pardoned and escape the judicial sentence that dictates his entry into prison. On the other hand, and more surprising has been the resignation of Sandro Rosell at the head of FC Barcelona, when he has hardly been in office for less than four years, giving way to Bertomeu at the wheel of the Barcelona ship until the call for early elections in June.

News of different informative scope that put both former presidents in the focus of the eyes of millions of people. For their mistakes and successes. Errors in the case of both, because Del Nido, as confirmed by the corresponding court ruling, committed a continuing crime of embezzlement within the framework of the so-called ‘Minutes case’, receiving a total of 2,8 million euros from Marbella City Council in the form of oversized bills or invoices for non-existent jobs. Errors in the case of Rosell because he never clarified the payment of the signing of Neymar and is now facing a complaint for possible "misappropriation due to distraction" in the hiring of Neymar.

Condemned one, not even charged yet the other, what is clear is that the two have responded differently to similar problems. Of the nest, despite the imputation and first sentence, he remained in office, he seized power and ignored those who asked for his resignation, staining the image of Sevilla. Rosell, by cons, has preferred to wash the image of the club, preserve their prestige and even their personal honesty.

Del Nido and Rosell, corruption in the world of football.
Del Nido and Rosell, corruption in the world of football.

There done well or badly in the Neymar case, What is clear is that few leave a club as important as Barcelona without even having a legal charge on the table. The statutes of Can Barça allowed him to continue even if it had occurred when the presumption of innocence prevailed. He, but nevertheless, honest has shown that honor is more important than power.

In a country where bankers, politicians, high-level athletes and hundreds of other famous people do not stop committing atrocities and remain unscathed in their positions, that the president of Barcelona has done this represents an exercise in manhood. That, what Del Nido, has seemed not to have, even more so after asking for a pardon that would be insulting to millions of people suffering the rigors of a crisis if it occurred, partly produced by guys like him.

  1. I remember a fragment of Barthes, in the pleasure of the text, very timely:

    “Isn't the most erotic place in a body there where the clothing opens? In perversion (what is the textual pleasure regime) there are no "erogenous zones" (expression on the other hand quite inopportune); is the intermittence, as psychoanalysis has well said, the one that is erotic: that of the skin that sparkles between two pieces (the pants and the pullover), between two edges (the shirt on http://www.espncamisetas.com/ ajar, glove and sleeve) ; it is that sparkle that seduces, or better: the staging of an appearance-disappearance.”
