By now you’ve probably heard about the player-driven protest taking place in Brazil over things like unpaid wages and fixture congestion. Let by a group called Bom Senso FC (“Common Sense FC”), Brazil’s professional players are making clear they’re sick and tired of the dysfunction rampant in the Brazilian game. Jamming the traditional state competitions and national league play into one calendar is hardly conducive to quality soccer. To make their point, the players are banding together to do things like what happened today at Flamengo-Corinthians, where the players sat down at the opening whistle for a minute of protest.‘
Protests like this are happening all over the country.
