Campeonato Carioca (Ed. especial) 1979

By Pelz2 Comments2856 ViewsPortuguese

Zico, Júnior and Carpegiani are already established players and, in this last round of the first stage, they will have the company of the young and technically gifted players Tita, Andrade (playing in relief of Adílio, another promissing young player) and Leandro in a glimpse of what the 1980s had in store for Flamengo. If Mengão wins, it will mean the title of the 1st stage of the 1979 Rio de Janeiro State Championship (special edition). The Botafogo of Perivaldo, Gil (a WC starter for Brazil in 1978), Osmar, Zé Carlos and Mendonça will try to prevent this.

    I think it's worth to be mentioned and understand why there was a "Carioca Especial". "Carioca" is Rio de Janeiro's City demonym while "Fluminense" is Rio de Janeiro's state demonym. Brasilia is the capital city of Brazil as a federal district but is a relatively new city founded for being the capital in the 1950s. Rio de Janeiro City was a federal district and the capital of the country until Brasilia's foundation. The city of Rio de Janeiro became Guanabara State when the capital of the country was traslated. Both state and city of Rio de Janeiro had their own local federations and league systems until the 1970s when Guanabara and Rio de Janeiro states merged . The City's league was the "Campeonato Carioca" and the state league the "Campeonato Fluminense" and despite the fusion in the new federation FFERJ the mass media still uses the term "Campeonato Carioca" despite the federation use to speak about "Série A" and "Campeonato Estadual" in it's official documents but technically the so called "Carioca" Campeonato Estadual isn't the same as the old and real Campeonato Carioca. The "Carioca Especial" was officially named "Campeonato Estadual Especial" and was an experimental edition with a system of unequal quotas which was "repeated" in the same year after CBD considered unfair the standard used by FFERJ for an unification and the next edition and first as an unified regular league had all the teams of both top tier leagues having relegated teams until reach a "decent" amount and create an unified and integrated promotion-relegation system in less than 3 years.

    Something is not right. The game settled at 3-0 for Flamengo, not 2-1. I guess the mistake was to attribute the third goal in the game to Botafago's Luizinho although the scorer was in fact Flamengo's Luizinho ('Luizinho das Arabias).
