The League of “lies”

The League of “lies”

This week you will hear, will read, You will see hundreds of news stories that revolve around records. Record for Barcelona in its best start ever with an impressive record of 42 goals in 14 matches and only eight conceded. Atlético de Madrid record, unstoppable this season with a single defeat and a single draw in what is the most perfect start that Manzanares remembers. Record of his center forward, a Hispanic-Brazilian who has the habit of scoring almost in every game. Record, of course, of Real Madrid and its infallible Cristiano Ronaldo, a major player who is on his way to the Ballon d'Or with just merit based on his performances.

Well then, believe it, it's true, but there is no worse lie than a half-truth. And make no mistake, this League is a lie, a farce, or to put it more grotesquely, a “shit” as José María del Nido so accurately defined it in his day, a visionary who saw this coming and who was called crazy.

Si esto sigue así, Barcelona at this rate will end with 112 points and more 120 Goals Scored. Si esto continúa así, Atlético will go from 100 points and Real Madrid too or will be very close while also overcoming the barrier of 120 Goals Scored. The distance with the room will be, do not give 30 points, sino de 40 or if things go wrong 50, in view of how things are going. Of course, everything will be records, never seen records, but…and the competition? No longer exists, nor the emotion?

It's pathetic to see 7-0, 6-0, 5-0 u 8-0 on a regular basis by the big guys and what is worse, the image of the opposing teams resigned, slaughtered, waiting to see coming without being able to do anything a new so much. Far from pleasing the fans of the big three themselves, The situation is beginning to get boring, as shown by the fact that people leave the field early despite the victory., as demonstrated by the fact that television audiences plummet in the second parts. And eye, which could be worse if instead of three teams, there would only be two like last campaigns or even, one.

That important players are missing from both teams does not seem to matter much: they earn the same.

This is Leo Messi's injury, Victor Valdes, Sami Khedira or Cristiano Ronaldo already seems to make no difference. The superiority is such that these players can be absent if their team suffers.. His participation only seems essential in the Champions League quarterfinals or semifinals or in direct confrontations.. But beyond that, Do you think that Barcelona or Real Madrid cannot manage without them or without half a squad to beat Granada?, Almeria and many other teams from the lower-middle or even high zone?

Distribution of television revenues, new rules, more character in small teams, I don't know what the formula is, but something has to be done because if not this is over…it's over and fast. You are seeing it yourselves. Do you like the situation? Not me, and worse, records are achieved by competing, let no one forget…and there is not much competition.
