Chinese team takes loss hard

Chinese league champs Shandong Luneng were knocked out of the Asian Champions League the other day.

The club did not take it well. All the players on the team were fined.

Fined. For losing.
"Players have to display the spirit of improving as well as good results otherwise the fans will never forgive them," Cui Faqiang, the club's deputy manager, told the Qilu Evening Post.

"After the Asian Champions League exit, we strengthened our punishments. From now on we will evaluate their training form, lifestyle, match results and link all these to their bonuses."
Wow. Overreaction of the century.
