Pago por ver... futbol

Nada es gratis en este mundo.
Las mejores cosas de la vida son gratis.
Pago por ver.
El que quiera azul celeste que le cueste.

Los anteriores son dichos populares que respaldan lo que hoy damos por hecho.

Quienes hemos sido consumidores de la televisión, gratuita y "de paga", sabemos que si es preciso ver algo más, hay que pagar.

Y si la televisión gratuita ya era comercial desde su nacimiento, la pagada, la ambición comercial se ha multiplicado.

Pero a qué viene esta entrada de televisión gratis y de paga.

A que hoy, simplemente no se puede ver a la selección mexicana a través de la pantalla, y la sociedad, al menos a quienes he oído, lamentan y denigran la medida.


La falla del penal de Osorio que no vimos muchos.

Pero, no pasa lo mismo con la educación o los servicios públicos, porque estos son una obligación de una entidad, en este caso las autoridades, ¿por qué si habría de serlo con el medio que más dinero consume, como la televisión?

La selección mexicana de futbol, a diferencia de los servicios públicos o la educación, no son una prioridad para el mexicano, el mexicano standar puede solventar su vida sin futbol e incluso sin televisión.

Pero, el medio, la pantalla, ha creado una necesidad y hoy el mexicano promedio reclama un "derecho" que nunca fue suyo. Ver a la selección mexicana gratis.

No, el mexicano promedio, por la situación del país, por las condiciones de la gente, no puede ver la televisión de paga y menos la selección mexicana, que propiamente no representan a la nación como una entidad o como una agrupación de mexicanos que realmente se mueren por todo el país.

El futbol mexicano ha sido manejado por intereses comerciales siempre, y van a querer mas.

Agrupaciones como la Federación Internacional de Futbol Asociado o la Federación Mexicana de Futbol, se manejan como asociaciones independientes, más, como organismos casi fascistas que sólo validan lo que les gusta y conviene.

Tan independientes son, que ningún país pone a su constitución por encima de la FIFA ante la inmediata amenaza del veto.

TV, agrupaciones y futbolistas no juegan por una nación, por favor, juegan independientemente para sus intereses personales y de grupo, son igualitos a los políticos.

El grave caso de la enajenación del mexicano, de rebasar el gusto del futbol y añadirlo a su modo de vida y casi tatuarse la playera de una selección que se maneja irrespetuosamente al aficionado, hoy se ha visto trastocado por el cobro de Sky, heredera de los derechos de Directv para transmitir juegos oficiales de la FIFA y entre ellos, de la selección mexicana.


Hace unos 15 años lo dijo muy claro José Ramón Fernández en el espacio que tenia, en aquel entonces, más independiente que ahora: "el futuro de la televisión es el pago por evento".

Esa es una triste realidad para quienes nos gusta ver la televisión.

Primero fue el box, luego el futbol y más tarde será toda la Libertadores y la liga y, en la apocalipsis del televidente, lo será toda señal hertziana que tenga como destino un monitor de televisión.

Pero no es para morirse, el hombre, por siglos, aprovechó bien el arte de la discusión, el arte del trato personal y ni la televisión con 70 años de antigüedad, ni el futbol con poco más de 100, pueden echar por tierra la cultura o aprendizaje del humano o del mexicano.

Así que si queremos ver a la "selección de todos", por la cual no recibimos un solo peso, aun cuando ganen la Copa del Mundo, tendremos que pagar, ahí no se puede discutir nada, mejor discutamos el punto si es preciso pagar por la educación o la salud. Ese tema si es importante y no, "el clásico pasecito a la red", por más satisfacciones que nos deje al gritar "¡Gooool de México!".

Spain a Contender in World Cup 2006

This Friday December 9, 2005 saw football lovers round the world clinging to the edge of their seats, ready and waiting to determine who they would play in the group stages of the World Cup 2006 in Germany. The ceremonial occasion contained all the anticipated fanfare and hoopla that a soccer fan would normally link with modern sporting events. In other words, the smitten sports buff was subjected to hours of mindless slobber when awaiting for the unparalleled action to start out. Whosoever puts these events together just can't perchance believe that the football fans who have tuned in to see such an event can be in any way smitten in the flaky magic exhibits and dance troops they force out. One can only believe that heavy numbers of hard cash in brown envelopes that changes hands in order to generate some feeble performers their luck to be on worldwide television. The experience was produced slenderly supplementary endurable with a handsome blonde in a revealing dress co-hosting the program.

When the standoff did at last came it was dragged out, with a horde of footballing celebrities taking balls to pick out the teams. Again, a soccer fan has to accept that the presenters and celebrities were being paid off by the second as they struggled to make this non-event into a television spectacular. This should have taken no further than fifteen minutes to carry through, but no, soccer reporting went on for a undivided three hours! Because this is an indication of affairs to hail it is no question that the tourney will take an entire calendar month to finish.

When the dust settled on the over padded proceedings in Leipzig, England came out of it rather well. Notwithstanding having traditional rivals for Sven's loyalty, Sweden, in the group, Paraguay and Trinidad & Tobago are surely there just to make things fair. With the top two from every group coming along to the second round, England are favorites to proceed into this phase with out too much trouble. Depending on the setting in both England’s group (B) and the Germany / Poland group (A) the substitutions perchance set up an early crunch match with the hosts. Even so this would bank on either Germany or England neglecting to win their various groups and an England vs. Poland second round match is tremendously additional probable. Providing this potential banana skin can be negotiated, the usual is that England will crash out on penalties in the quarter finals to either Holland or Argentina. All England buffs, notwithstanding the optimism that usually rings the ballyhoo to a world cup, hold a sensation of the inevitable heroical defeat in the latter stages of the tourney. The common comments have been made up by the various directors, with Sven contributing in his normal unrestrained flair.

Perhaps the most intriguing groups are C, where Holland and Argentina are drawn jointly, and E, where Italy takes on USA, Czech Republic and Ghana. Normally ho-hum starters to tourneys, and having broke down to go on from the group stages last time around, Italy stand a tough task onwards. Having been drawn with the very much improving USA and a Czech side who are beginning to indicate signals of the retuning glory days with an mythical performance in the last Euro Championships, Italy may be the competitors first large casualty, with Ghana being very tremendously an unsung entity. Group C caters to an early clash of the prominent boys, where the Dutch face are good deal better than their ungraded position suggests, but both Holland and Argentina need be firm enough to overcome Ivory Coast and Serbia & Montenegro to win to the second round. The only question in truth is of who may top the group and in theory cast the easier second round match.

Historically it has been very rocky for a South American squad to win a world cup in Europe and at first site Brazils ranking as clear front-runners might seem a little generous. Notwithstanding, the game is not the equal as it has been in the yesteryear and several of the Brazilian team already frolic in top European sides in England, Spain and Italy. Their adaptation has been years in the forming and the European manner of soccer fused with the traditional Brazilian genius and talent may be mouthwatering to observe. It might take a very expert face to take away their pennant from them and in Ronaldhino they have a player who can bend any play off on his own.

Perhaps the most fun facet of any world cup is catching the dark horses, those minnows from commonwealths not affiliated with footballing grandness, progress and bowl over some of the brighter lights. This time around, there are reasonable aspersions of African commonwealths in the blend and some surprises could come from there. It may be worth looking out for the likes of Ivory Coast and Ghana when determining where to set that venturesome high odds wager at the loan shark. South Korea, Maybe the surprise bundle of the previous world cup in Japan are unlikely to be capable to replicate their heroics and will not be undervalued a second instance
