“Tonight was an embarrassment. Everyone on the field should be embarrassed ... I don’t care how hot it is.”
That’s Tony Beltran after tonight’s 5-1 loss to Houston Dynamo in an on-air interview with Brian Dunseth and David James.

It’s impossible to disagree with Beltran here, whose anger after the match was palpable.
We need to really look at the film tonight, because … all over the board, it’s not good enough. ... This was an opportunity for a six-point game. The Western Conference is good, and if we’re not careful, we’ll be left behind.
RSL’s 5-1 loss was perhaps their worst of the season, with the closest almost certainly having been a 4-0 loss against New England.
If you’re looking for intrigue in this, look no further than Beltran talking about not caring how hot it was on the field — that feels like a pointed criticism.
