¿Como se dice 'no season' en Castellano?

Post by Geezaldinho on Sat Aug 08, 2009 9:00 pm

I knew the economy in Argentina was in dire straits again (worse even than ours)

But now the start of the Aperatura season, which was scheduled to start the 14th, is suspended indefinitely.

Fans are panicking, and the rich clubs are buying up players from the clubs that can't weather a bad economy. The problem is augmented because European clubs aren't buying Argentine players, a traditional source of income in Argentina.

And for some unexplained reason, the clubs turned down a $10 million advance on TV revenues to keep the season on track.

The last time Argentina had a revolution, it was over something much less significant (the Malvinas war).

Wow...another sign of the times, I guess. Are the European Clubs that aren't buying players struggling too? I've often wondered how having AIG as a sponsor affected Manchester United...or if that was even an issue.

Well first off, Man U isn't really affected by AIG's waning fortunes at all, AIG signed the contract and had to honor it to the end, with this upcoming season being the last. They signed another lucrative deal with Aon Corp (An insurance/risk management firm based out of Chicago) to catch on for the 2010-11 campaign

Yes and no is how I would answer the first question. Milan is definitely hurting, hence the reason why the sold Kaka and look like they might sell Pato to Chelsea (and then in turn have him right back to the Rossineri on loan for the upcoming season). Arsenal is screwed for at least another 10 years because of HUGE stadium debt, hence the reason they have been selling (Forbes listed them as the 3rd most valuable team in the world, but 107% of that value is locked in said debt, EEK!). But all in all most of the big teams are still doing pretty well, while the lower division teams are most definitely hurting.

But don't get me started on teams that wear blue and are funded by oil tycoons and/or mafiosos...
