    Rest of Spanish domestic season suspended

    This is actually really interesting. All domestic Spanish football has been suspended over a row about television rights. This includes the final few La Liga games (with Barca currently top), and the domestic cup final.

    If only the Championship had done the same about 10 weeks ago!

    Big bucks Madrilona aren't happy that they are to be forced to share the TV cash with the mere mortals. Without the mortals they would have no games to sell. If was a small club I'd ask Madrilona to share the cash or not play them.

    good for the non barca/real teams - I hope they have the bottle (and the funds) to see this through - without the rest of them they would not have tv deals - that is the one good thing about the premiershite - it at least has the illusion of sharing the funds (although the big sides still get the lions share is is not 98% of the total pot like in Spain)

    Maybe we'll all get lucky and Barca and Real will propose to Bayern, PSG, Man Utd., Arsenal, etc. that they all secede from their domestic leagues, form a permanent separate competition, and take all the insane amounts of global TV revenue turning the game into a nuthouse/circus with them. Whatever English football would look like without Man Utd., Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool, it couldn't possibly be worse.

    But if we went up & went on to dominate the top tier of English football then we'd want to join them, surely?
