One of the biggest teams that Corinthians ever had, curiously, is not so remembered for the subtlety with the ball in the feet or the precise passes of his midfield, especially a certain Doctor. This team is remembered for being unique, for emancipating the name of the club in Brazil and for faithfully representing the political moment that the country lived in the 80's. This team was the Democratic Corinthians Paulista, a team represented in the Corinthian Democracy movement, Which marked the unprecedented participation of the players in the day to day of the administrative and bureaucratic matters of the club, as well as in the management of the same. Players whistled as much as a suit and gave their opinions in whatever way suited them. But this squad was not just about politics, of course. I lived on football. And he won two consecutive São Paulo championships, both against the great rival at the time, São Paulo. Of breaking, it avoided tricolor championship of the tricolor in 1982, something that the club of the Morumbi never obtained in the state. Was it too much for the faithful crowd? It was magical, just as Socrates, Zenon, Biro-Biro and Casagrande were also. Let's remember.
The year 1981 was terrible for Corinthians. The club suffered a 26th place in the Brazilian championship and the eighth place in São Paulo, which culminated in the club's "relegation" to the 1982 Silver Cup in the national championship. The dispute, however, foresaw the rise of the clubs in the same year to the main division, a clear example of total disorganization of Brazilian football at the time (although it has not changed much, is it?). The poor results would come at the same time with the end of the management of the folkloric president Vicente Matheus, in the beginning of 1982. Waldemar Pires assumed like new president and brought new airs to the equipment. He, the sociologist Adílson Monteiro Alves, and politicized players like Socrates and Wladimir began a new model of running the club, a kind of self-management. The revolution was made.
