I love watching the game when it is raining. Leave the stadium as it.

And that thing looks terrible.

Florentino loooooooooves unnecessary purchases. It's him expanding seating by 5,000 and adding a roof, which he apparently promised doing in 2007. What bothers me more is the fact he's thinking of selling naming rights.

Tomorrow:  Jerry Jones plans to improve his stadium by making it all gold.

...yeah, that sounds like Real Madrid all right. They are pretty damned cartoonish in how they spend their money.

Meanwhile, Racing Santander's players have gone so long without getting paid that by Spanish law, the players are now free to void their contracts and just walk away if they choose. They went on strike in the Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Real Sociedad by just waltzing up to the center spot and locking arms immediately after kickoff, forcing an abandonment and awarding to Sociedad.

They got disqualified from next season's Copa del Rey, but right now it's probably an open question whether the club will even live that long anyway.

That's mainly due to falling to the Liga Adelante and floundering there, then falling to Segunda B. It's a club with a lot of history, but it's hard for a regional club to take that kind of revenue loss.
Reading up on teams that have gone away in recent years in Spain, Segunda B is the worst thing that can happen to a team that used to be in La Liga, doubly so if it was recent. Pretty much every team from Extremadura has been dissolved at some point, all due to debt.

The great tragedy here too is the fact that Racing is a founding member of La Liga.

I'd say it's more due to getting basically swindled by Ali Syed. He oversaw the whole thing. The day before he took control (he took control on a gameday, Round 20 of the 2010/11 season), Santander was 14th in the La Liga table. They finished 12th, and then the following season is where everything went to hell.
