This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Netflix now has "The Figo Affair". by G.K.Chesterton
My wife and I had never heard of Luis Figo until last night and I don't follow either Barca or Real Madrid (my wife followed Barca when Messi was there), but it was an interesting look at what happens when you get an indecisive player and add unscrupulous people into his universe. If you have a preconception about sleazy agents and the like, you won't be disappointed, and Figo has his own defects. They also dug up a lot of good footage from when this whole affair went down.
If you are a Pep fan, I recommend watching it for his up-close comments on what went down, since he was a good friend of Figo's while both were at Barca.
NOTE: the documentary is in Spanish but English subtitles are available. The trailer below only has Spanish subtitles, but the trailer at the Netflix site has the English subtitles.
