    Being from South America, I've always loved the Spanish League because I get to see some of the best players in South America play and the narrators are also in Spanish.

    The last few years I've been getting pretty tired of the Spanish League BS, specially with Mourinho blaming the referees every time he loses a game.
    Pepe violent way of playing and then crying "Why are referees picking on me?" doesn't help.
    Mourinho poking a guy in the eye and only getting a 2 game punishment was plain ridiculous

    I've been noticing that the camera people consistently seem to only show replays from angles that favor Real Madrid fans.
    Yesterday Madrid played Valencia, after a goal, Mourinho jumped on the back of a Madrid player to celebrate.... they showed THREE different replays of that from THREE different angles.

    At the end of the game, there was a very controversial play that looks like Higuain stopped the ball with his hand in the box.
    The TV people only showed ONE replay from a really bad angle.

    Somehow, magically, about 12 hours later they "find" another replay from a better angle that clearly shows Higuain stopping the ball with his hand in the small box.

    Well, I'm sick and tired of all this Spanish League replay manipulation and b....ing and crying about referees every time a team loses a game.

    F.... THE SPANISH LEAGUE, I'M DONE WITH IT.

    And this is how the referee "screw them over" giving a penalty that was a free kick.

    I don't blame the OP. Personally I can't leave La Liga because I am tied to Barca so I must at least follow/watch their matches. But otherwise I wouldn't watch either. If I am honest, I must say these days I just watch the first 45 minutes of every Barca game or until its 3-nil (whichever comes first) and save the rest of my soccer-viewing time to watch other leagues, most of which have less than a 782 point gap between 2nd and 3rd place teams in the table.

    I'm seriously sick and tired of all the b...ing and crying about the referees.

    A few days ago I saw an article complaining that a referee didn't use the same judgement with Pepe when he foul Alves about 6 months ago and a similar play against Pepe a few days ago.

    It's not even the same competition... but they are still going to say that "The referee hates Pepe"

    I wanted to see if other people feel like I do.

    For me, it's difficult.
    I don't like the English narrators, but man, I rather listen to them than all the b...ing and crying that is going in La Liga about every single play.

    I totally agree with the OP because it nothing more than an informercial for RM or Barca. I honestly can't tell you who the 3rd winningest (as in league titles) Spanish team is for La Liga. The only game worth watching is the El Clasico and the rest of the league can go to hell. EPL is pretty decent to watch but it is still top heavy with Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, and now City. I think the best overall league in the world is the Bundesliga. However, l love the Brasileiro league since it is so unpredictable and lots of scoring.

    serie a is still one of my favorites.

    the argentina primera with river relegating :eek: the mexican and mls are cool bc you can never tell who will win.

    agree with bundesliga and brasileirao, very unpredictable.

    The Spanish league is still maybe the 2nd or 3rd best league in the world and the football produced here is fantastic. I agree at the moment the situation is that Real and Barca are getting to strong and that hurts the league but there are a lot of other strong teams as well as Valencia, Malaga, Athletic Bilbao just to mention a few. What the league needs is a more equal playing ground when it comes to incomes and revenues from especially the TV rights. The rich are getting richer and it's not helping at all, but its refresheing to see a team like Levante fighting in the top with their limited resources.

    Spaniards outside Madrid and Barcelona will tell you how much they HATE the fact that Real and Barsa have taken the fun out of the league. Used to be that Valencia, At. Madrid and Ath. Bilbao had "a" chance, even a Sevilla. Now... :/

    Bundesliga is a one team league and la liga is a two team league. Most leagues in europe are top heavy but those two are over the top in that regard.

    Man United has won a bunch of titles but at least when the season starts you feel like Man City, Chelsea and maybe liverpool and arsenal have a shot.

    Serie A has a lot of tradition but scandals, corruption, match fixing and the country being broke has relegated that league to just average.

    The best thing is to follow all leagues and watch the important matches only. That's what I do I watch the best games available regardless of the league they are from.

    Last time I checked Bayern did not win the 2011-12 title but this year were on fire much like the Barca team that Pep coached when they won it all. Having ATT UVerse has been a blessing in disguise as I no longer am punished watching the liga and if I need my dose of pain I will see my Betis on a live stream, and I have begun to appreciate the EPL that much more. Sort of bummed out that Wigan got relegated and Forest did not get promoted because this year all EPL matches will be televised.

    As a RM fan I cannot sympathize with you, however I will tell you that Barca has owned the refs and single handedly turn the league into the toilet. Barca with there entitled nature and play has diluted la liga..

    Bundesliga was a two team league for a quick second. But bayern munich nipped it in the bud really quick. Took dortmund's best player and might take their best striker as well. Right now Bayern is an easy favorite to win bundesliga title next year. And they look to be the strongest team by a lot and everybody else is playing for second.

    4 different teams crowned as Champions in the last 7 years sure doesn't sound like a two or as you say a one team league.

    06-07: Stuttgart/Schalke/Bremen(-2 pts behind second place finisher)
    07-08: Bayern/Bremen/Schalke (-2 pts)
    08-09: Wolfsburg/Bayern/Stuttgart (-3)
    09-10: Bayern/Schalke/Bremen (-4)
    10-11: Dortmund/Leverkusen/Bayern (-3)
    11-12: Dortmund/Bayern/Schalke (-9)
    12-13: Bayern/Dortmund/Leverkusen (-1)

    Three titles for Bayerns and two for dortmund thanks for proving my point. In seven years two teams won almost all the titles. And like I've said it became a one team league once Bayern took dortmund best player and probably will also get Lewandowski. Making their team a lot stronger and their rival a lot weaker.

    Bayern and Dortmund have placed either first or second 8 times out of possible 14 occasions which equates to 57% of the time. Compared to La Liga where only Villareal's second place finish in 07-08
    prevented Barca and Madrid from finishing in the top 2 slots on all 14 occasions or 93% of the time.
    Until Bayern finishes in first place for 3-4 years in a row like Barca did ( 08-09, 09-10, 10-11) I will not call the Bundesliga a one team league.

    I said that bundesliga was a two team league and just became a one team league. Games are won on the field but I doubt any other team wins the title next season. They are too strong and just became stronger with their additions while other teams are losing players and not gaining much.
