Moment of madness in Qingdao leads to brawl

Yesterday’s match in Qingdao between Jonoon and Shanghai Shenxin was an exciting one, though it was overshadowed by a late brawl. Perhaps frustrated by his team having just went down after Liu Jian scored his second goal, Antonio Flavio took a violent kick at Qingdao defender Guo Liang’s legs. Zheng Long, who was next to Guo, took offense to this and pushed Flavio, who responded with a back handed punch to Zheng’s face.

This led to both sides’ benches being cleared as Flavio ran away from multiple Qingdao coaches and subs who chased after him throwing punches. The surreal incident was made all the more so when Flavio AND Zheng were both shown red cards. Check out the video below to watch the whole sordid incident.

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.

    Zheng was the first one to make physical contact of aggressive nature. Flavio shouldn’t have thrown the punch, that was unsportsmanlike behavior not meant for the pitch. But then again, he didn’t start it. And the aftermath, him and two other Shenxin players got penalties. 8, 6 and 4 games… And Zheng only got 4… The refereeing of the whole match stunk of favoritism and possibly a bribe. Not to mention that two black payers got harsh penalties for defending themselves. There was no football on that day, at least not on any professional scale.
