Colombia: A “Football for All” Bill Proposed in Congress

Since the biggest TV cable operators could not reach a deal with the Colombian football administration for the rights of the domestic tournament matches until 2016, a Senator proposed a bill in order to break the “monopoly,” so the matches can be broadcast on over-the-air channels (only one of the nine matches every week is broadcast on national TV). Both Mache at Falta contra el balón [es] and Alejandro Pino Calad on Gotas de veneno [es] explain why this bill is a bad copy of a bill implemented in Argentina, why taxes should not be spent on this, and why there is no such ‘monopoly.’
