I remember someone told me the spanish league was corrupt and basically a huge business now a days. He made a bet with me in during the 2007-2008 season near the end when Betis started trash talking the refs after a game against Osasuna I believe and he said Betis would get relegated next season. I didn't think it would be possible Betis had star players liek Ricardo in Goal, Sergio Garcia as a Forward, Ricardo Oliviera, Mehmet Aurelio, etc.. so as the 2008-2009 season began they started strong then on the last day they got relegated. I still think its coincidental but at the same time there was so much teams that were worse that season who should of went down. But all in all what im trying to say is Spanish referees kill the spanish league and its really sad.
