At the presser
Jaime Cardenas is not getting any Christmas cards from Canada's Nick Dasovic. Jaime asked in the press conference if there was any agreement between Canada and Guatemala for the game. Nick, trying to keep his emotions in check, refused to answer that question.
Here's how I would have phrased it, "Nick, conspiracy theories being what they are, some people are going to wonder if there was any agreement between Canada and Guatemala for this game - what would you say to those people?"
Hey, I figure, if there's a question a reporter feels needs to be asked because people at large will wonder about it, then blame "those people" for the question.
Scott French says, "I thought [Jaime's] question was tongue-in-cheek." Jaime said it was, a little bit, and he wanted to hear the reaction. You can hear the reaction of reporter Nick Green clearly - he's the one laughing.
