Default Spanish Players Might Boycott The 2014 FIBA World Cup

http://www.mundodeportivo.com/201406...409153732.html

According to current rumors, Spain's players are considering boycotting the tournament, due to the new rules set to take place in Spain, that teams could only have to have 2-4 Spanish players on their rosters.

The Spanish players are also said to be considering boycotting the Spanish League Finals, although less likely, because of the timing.

Dipshit links another article in a foreign language.

All the same, it's probably for the best. They need a national recovery period after getting so thoroughly humiliated in front of the world in Brazil.

Spain and Greece already boycotted the FIFA World Cup and everybody seems to be happy about that.
