La Liga's*dominance by Real Madrid and Barcelona unlikely to end - Sid Lowe - SI.com
Most staggering line:
Negotiated club by club rather than as a collective, Real Madrid and Barcelona earn in the region of €125 million ($161 million) a year in domestic rights (plus the money, guaranteed to them but not to anyone else, from the Champions League). The next highest is Valencia on €42 million ($54 million). That's less than Middlesbrough got in England last season -- and Middlesbrough was relegated. Meanwhile, Madrid and Barcelona got almost treble what the Premier League champions Manchester United got.

Thanks thats a good and insightful article, the dominance by Madrid and Barca really does ruin what otherwise might be a reasonably competitive league. The reason the English League is seen as the best is because it is so competitive and on any day any team can beat any other team whereas in Spain such a thing very rarely happens.
