Basically, Carlos doesn't think teams should play SuperLiga if they can't behave better. But he also blames the structure of the tournament.
By the way, don't knock me for not knowing all the panelists names - I don't watch the show that often, but feel free to inform me if you know who they are.
Carlos Albert: When is Atlante going to go back? What did the players have to lose? Probably never, so it didn’t matter to them, Vilar, Mustafa, and the rest, how they behaved or if they got carded. And the fields were bad. We’ve got to understand that the team directors went in search of a million dollars and came back without that and in many cases, without dignity. That can’t be permitted – against the U.S. teams, that we’re always the villains, because we can’t lose. We have to go to win, we have to learn to win, but we also have to learn to lose. We can’t be ridiculous and lose our dignity like so many on Atlante and a few on Pachuca the other day. What we saw in the SuperLiga wasn’t new or strange – we can’t cry about it. Coaches, administrators and players, they all have to learn to do their preseason differently, with dignity. It’s embarrassing, as a Mexican. It makes me mad.
Heriberto Murrieta: You really think Atlante has lost their dignity?
CA: Don’t tell me that Vilar hasn’t lost it.
HM: He lost his head.
CA: And his dignity.
HM: Well, his sporting dignity.
CA: Everything I’m saying is at the sporting level. When a player reacts the way he did to a loss, that’s a loss of dignity.
HM: But don’t you think such reactions are due to crappy refereeing?
Panelist #2: That’s not a decent excuse. Mexican teams know that the refs are terrible and they go there with that knowledge. These two teams, Pachuca and Atlante, come back with nothing. What if this had been a final?
Panelist #3 But bad refs can really change a game and upset players. It clearly happened in Pachuca’s game, and again with Atlante. Did you see the handball play near the end of the game? Would you consider that a penalty for Atlante?
P3: Then I’m telling you, the bad calls by the refs changed those games.
