8 Times Netflix’s ‘Club De Cuervos’ Reminded Us How Intense Sibling Rivalry Is


“Club de Cuervos,” Netflix’s first original series in Spanish, revolves around Chava and Isabel Iglesias, two siblings fighting over control of their recently deceased father’s soccer team in Nuevo Toledo, a fictional small town outside Mexico City.


Plus, it really drives home the issues siblings have sometimes.

Even if they don’t always say it, siblings show they love you during tough times.

After their father dies from a fatal sauna incident (been there), Chava and Isabel bond on the fútbol field. All signs point to the two embarking upon an honest and happy co-ownership of los Cuervos. For now.

Sometimes, siblings can be so similar that they clash.

Chava is as fresa as they come, and he’s very anxious to take the reigns of Los Cuervos and really make the team his own. Isabel is ambitious yet calculated, and she wants to run the team the same way her father did.

Going into business with your siblings is… technically possible, but ill-advised.

But Chava has other plans up his sleeve, and kicks her out as co-owner. Dun dun dunnn…

Because they’ll always be family, it’s way too easy to take a sibling for granted.

In the beginning, Isabel tries her hardest to play the role of the supportive older sis, but Chava’s ego spins out of control.

Siblings are bonded by blood… and by embarrassing moments.

Acting like the king of Nuevo Toledo, Chava orders a spray tan service to his office, and Isabel walks in on him. An embarrassing situation at any age, tbh.

Siblings know how to hurt you the most.

Things never fail to get too real when family history becomes the topic of discussion. Isabel and Chava claw at each other when Chava brings up their father’s past love affairs.

And forgiveness never seems to be on the table with these two. Isabel retaliates by trying to fire Chava from Los Cuervos.

And he gets back at her by barricading her from the office.

In the end, a sibling rivalry is a sibling rivalry. No one wins or loses. It’s a life-long game.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t always an opportunity to make things better…

Romero is aware there aren’t many Latinas playing Division I college softball, and she hopes to inspire young Latinas to follow her footsteps.

“It’s cool to be one of the few Mexican women in Division I and, you know, representing for Mexicans,” said Romero to the Big Ten Network.

Romero recently graduated, but she’ll go down as one of the greatest players in Michigan softball history.

If you don’t follow sports, “All-American” basically means Romero was one of the best players in her position in the whole country.

Her former coach, Carol Sue Hutchins, says Romero is one of the best to ever do it.

“She’s gonna go down as arguably the best player, not just at the University of Michigan, but in NCAA history,” said Hutchins to the Big 10 Network.

During her senior year, Romero batted .465 and hit 19 home runs.

Romero also holds the NCAA record for runs (3o0)

Romero credits her father, Michael, for inspiring to pick up a bat.

Michael Romero played in a baseball league in Tjiuana, Mexico and he says Sierra was always there to watch him play. After seeing her father hit a homerun, Sierra says she told her mother, “I want to hit homeruns like that.”

Sierra’s father may have inspired her to play softball, but he says she’s a lot like her mother.

“Sierra is kind of like the life of the party; she’s a lot like my wife,” said Michael Romero to the Detroit Free Press.

Michael Romero, whose family is based in Murrieta, California, also hopes his daughter can inspire Latino parents to let their kids live far from home to pursue their dreams.

Romero, who was named 2016 College Softball Player of the Year, led Michigan to the final 8 at this year’s Division I College Softball Championship.

Romero’s team was eliminated by the eventual champions, Oklahoma. Sierra knows the team well — her sister, Sydney, is a freshman third baseman for the Sooners.

Now that Romero’s college career is in the books, she’s moved on to other goals. She’s now playing pro ball for the USSSA Florida Pride…

And she’s already gotten off to a good start.
