Is Nortel a Poor Loser?

Back in November, Nortel missed out on being part of a huge contract with Telstra in Australia. Last week, however, it was warning Cisco, Ericsson and Alcatel, they better not screw up. "That was a disappointment. That was an area that we were looking to expand on," Nortel's Australia and New Zealand president Mark Stevens said in an interview with ZDNet Australia. "The big onus on the people that won those contracts is to be able to deliver and demonstrate what they can achieve." That sounds more like sour grapes than anything else, don't you think? Wouldn't it have been better for Nortel to lick its wounds and work behind the scenes to get back into the game than complain about its lots?
