The history of Mexican television had a total turning point in the 1970s, when Televisión Independiente de México (TIM) merged with Telesistema Mexicano and Televisa was born in 1973, the country's leading public media company, which he inherited the nascent project of "Chavo del 8" and began his meteoric rise through Mexico and Latin America.
The series promoted by Roberto Gómez Bolaños Chespirito in 1971 was successful from the beginning, so when the merger of companies was consummated, Televisa was in charge of maintaining the extraordinary boom that it had in Spanish-speaking countries and "El Chavo del 8" was became the flagship product of the company together with "Chapulín Colorado".
Among the reasons that made the production successful, one was played by Ramón Valdez, who played the character of “Don Ramón” and that among his many peculiarities, that of his favorite team always attracted public attention. Known by all fans of the series, Don Ramón's favorite team was Necaxa, a club that shone in Mexican amateur soccer during the 1930s and was always identified with the working classes, mainly because it was made up of workers. of Luz y Fuerza del Centro in its beginnings.
Curiously, "El Chavo del 8", a series produced between 1971 and 1980, totally coincided with the second disappearance of Necaxa, because between 1971 and 1982, the team was sold by owner Julio Orvañanos and during that time it acquired the name of Atlético Español; So why was Don Ramón supporting a missing team?

The reason why Don Ramón was a fan of Necaxa
The reason is simple and goes according to the character that Valdez played in the 70s, because at that time, who presumed to be a fan of Necaxa was directly proportional to being a brave person, with strength and incorruptible in his ideals. During the decade of "Chavo del 8", it was said that whoever went to Necaxa was a true "man" for maintaining the fans over a non-existent team.
The great Necaxa fans during the time tried to make the name prevail as a symbol of resistance, so although some transferred their support to the Atlético Español Bulls, the gallantry was shown by saying that they were going to Necaxa. For this reason, in multiple scenes in the series, the context of Don Ramón's famous phrase "I'm going to Necaxa!" It was in relation to the fact that in his character there was pure “manliness” over anything else, always under the social context of the 70s in Mexico.
