The chaos of the Spanish League
Once again, the Spanish League is once again in the forefront of football news and unfortunately not because of its good tasks. The last, is the possibility of a new delay, just as it happened last year, due to problems with television operators. Total, 13 teams have asked the LFP for an urgent meeting for next Tuesday to try to fix an issue that has dragged on for a long time.
The sad thing about the fact, is that in the Spanish League, the chaos is starting to become a habit. The schedules are set by the television operators without attending to the requests of the clubs. The televisions, in turn, do not pay all of the amounts set to the equipment. And for more inri, the economic distribution towards the clubs is more than unbalanced.
All this is leading to a spiral that can lead football to a very dangerous dynamic. And is that disregarding the fan can be like hitting himself. If one puts matches at untimely hours on a Sunday or Monday for a follower who must get up the next day soon, most likely he will not go to the field. And here the excuse of tracking in China is not valid, because when a game is played at 23 Spain hours, in China it is 5 in the morning, and the truth, be said, I don't think many oriental fans get up at that time to watch a match.
But it is also yes, it turns out that as a consequence of unbalanced budgets, one team ends up routinely beating another at half-time, the safest, is that he does not even dare to see it on television, with the consequent loss for everyone.
All of this, not to mention the image abroad, where they already take the League as a pitorreo. Calendars and league starts always delayed for one reason or another, and permanent debts of the clubs that cannot even pay the salaries begins to be our daily bread.
Therefore, it's time to sit down and put the dots on the ies. Because otherwise, when this wonderful generation of Spanish footballers ends who arouse everyone's interest, the truth may appear. Y precisamente, may not be very nice. Y si no, ask basketball, that already happened there.
