They maybe deserve the worship (it's way beyond praise) for their success, but not the endless wanking over their style of play, which is no doubt clever and intricate, but also fucking pedestrian and boring. IMO.
This is bemusing - surely they actually deserve the praise for the most part?
Whether most teams cheat as much as Barca is debatable, but for sure no other team in history has been as nausea-inducingly eulogised over by everyone in the media.
No doubt the media can overdo it, but not to the point you're alluding to.
