Rilke, Vila-Matas, Paris and Another Warning to Members of the National Congress: Brazilian Football Is Great, but it Has an End
The debate about the club-company is not new: it has been on the agenda since the advent of the 1988 Constitution and has had repercussions, to a greater or lesser extent, with each club crisis or when sports laws are introduced.
Football should not be treated, in Brazil, just as a game. On the left or on the right, it doesn't matter, the contempt (or prejudice) for the activity that attracts, to a greater or lesser extent, approximately 140 million Brazilians and 4.5 billion Earthlings, is unacceptable.
