In this Managing Madrid - Let’s Fix Football crossover, hosts Gabe Lezra and Evan Mateer break down the #FootballLeaks revelations that Real Madrid and other major teams are considering creating a breakaway SuperLeague. Gabe and Evan are both attorneys who host the law-football-comedy podcast Let’s Fix Football, and in this segment they break down the question of the SuperLeague:

  • What would it look like, and what would the teams get out of it?
  • Would the league run into legal issues--and if so, how would they get out of it?
  • What’s the latest Football Twitter beef?
  • Oh wait, did you think this was just going to be serious? Come on, son.
  • Tancredi Pamieri and @Registability got into a hilarious Twitter beef and Gabe and Evan are ready to suit up for Team Tancredi. Who is a real life weirdo, but not a huge poser.
  • But, most importantly, they break down a boot-licking ESPN article about #FootballLeaks, and chat about the over-arching issues that these revelations pose.
  • Oh, and get ready for next week, folks. Because they’re talking FFP with FCPA attorney Ernesto Alvarado.
