Players from top teams, including Barcelona and Real Madrid, have threatened to boycott the last games of the season if the government does not renegotiate a reform of football broadcasting rights.

It remained unclear how likely the stoppage was to go ahead and how the row might be resolved, as players' representatives and the football federation raised various demands, some apparently not directly linked to the broadcast issue.

But the professional football league, in charge of the superstar Primera Division, rejected calls to change the terms of the television reform and hurled recriminations at the federation.

The federation and players threatened an open-ended strike from May 16, which could affect crucial end-of-season league games and the Spanish Cup final this month.

The president of the professional football league Javier Tebas filed a case on Friday at the National Court in Madrid against the AFE players' union over the strike.

He has lashed out in recent days at Spain's football federation, the powerful body that governs the lower leagues and the national team.

Tebas accuses its president Angel Maria Villar, who is also a vice-president of world governing body FIFA, of running the organisation "like his private estate".

In an interview with AFP Friday, Tebas said the strike would breach Spanish labour law and collective bargaining agreements between the league and the union.

The Liga in a statement urged the court to process the case "with the greatest possible urgency".

The law approved by the government last month obliges broadcasters to bid collectively for the lucrative rights to screen matches and redistributes the revenues.

The federation and the players' union say the law does not give a fair share of the revenue to smaller lower-league clubs.

The league has accused them of other motives.

Tebas alleged the federation was opposing the television reform as a counter-attack against the government due to a dispute over public subsidies to the federation.

Are Spain and Germany 'real' rivals in football ? | Yahoo Answers

Perhaps for the current generation of players since they've played each other deep into big tournaments there is a rivalry. But historically no.
Germany's most heated rivalries are with Holland and, to a lesser extent these days, France.
Germany does not really consider England as a main rival. The 'rivalry' exists more from the English point of view who love to throw in the World War II angle. Wikipedia lists a section on the England-Germany 'rivalry' but the page does not exist in German. (a Germany-Netherlands page does exist in German - see links below)
And like Spain, Argentina…
