Always Finding New Ways to Screw the Opponent…

Tianjin player dropped by the medics

Tianjin player dropped by the medicsIf those involved in Chinese football were as inventive in finding and promoting skilled players as they are at finding new ways to screw over the opposition, China would be in the top 10 in the FIFA rankings.  Unfortunately as we all know, that just isn’t the case…

Now the new method appears to be for the medics at the stadium to mistreat visiting team players.  It might be a little too early to call this a trend, but earlier in the season a Chinese Super League medic crew in Guangzhou hammered Guoan defender Xu Yunlong on the head with the stretcher they brought onto the pitch.

While that incident can be debated, this one cannot.  During a China League match in Changsha last weekend (May 8th), the medics appear to purposely drop a Tianjin Songjiang player as they carried him off the pitch.  The scene is almost too crazy to believe, but check out the video below for proof.  Let’s hope this will be the last such incident we see this year…

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
