During goodwill trip to China, Hoyas' game ends in brawl

What began as a goodwill trip to China for the Georgetown men's basketball team turned violent Thursday night, when its exhibition game against the Bayi Rockets deteriorated into a melee during which players exchanged blows, chairs were thrown and spectators tossed full water bottles as Hoyas players and coaches headed to the locker room at Olympic ...

Ahh, a display of good citizenship and sportmanship. Something for the schools to hold up with pride.

Who are these ambassadors of "goodwill" ?

Pres. Obama is now drafting an apology for this U S aggression.

Looks like the Asian players were stomping the Georgetown players during the game (see picture)

Although this is only one story and picture, the Chinese team and its fans look like they bear the lion's share of the blame.

A disgraceful incident that will seriously set back relations between the countries. The U.S. should forbid further visits by U.S. sports teams until their safety can be guaranteed.

NO Chinese team would be received like this ANYWHERE in America. The Chinese owe some massive apologies here.

Oh, what cretin xenophobes and racists. US fans chanted during the Olympics as other nations' gymnasts tried to concentrate on their routines. There's more than enough nationalism on both sides.

I'd like to see an unedited tape of the entire game leading up to the incident, but no doubt the US media will cut it just so.

Yeah,'cause chanting is JUST like attacking people on the court and tossing bottles after you've forced them to leave the arena.

Right, moron?

Hey stupid, it is customary in the civilized world to be quiet during a gymnast's performance so she can concentrate. The US xenophobes were deliberately trying to make opposing gymnasts do poorly. Beyond unsportsmanlike. There are plenty of other examples.

They're are on court and off court (rink, field,) brawls all the time at US church, high school, college and pro athletic events in the US.

You're a braying xenophobe is all.

However, it is ironic when goodwill tours devolve into violence. That's nationalism on everybody's part, as I said.

Your examples do not justify the behavior of the Asians at this event.

It was the Chinese players that started it there was even a guy in khakis that worked for the Chinese team stomping on the player on the ground. But whenever it was one Georgetown player and one Chinese player guess who ended up on the ground the Chinese then some of the Chinese went and got chairs because they knew they were gettin there ass beat when they weren't jumping one Georgetown player. Had Chinese fans and Chinese people that were in khakis not jumped into the fight there would have been 12 Chinese players on the ground. Where's Ron arrest when you need him? I can wait till the next time team USA plays team china I'm calling it now team USA wins by at least 25 points.

My examples were to shut the xenophobic racist up who posted as though this incident were unique to China.

I certainly was not excusing the disgusting, unsportsmanlike behavior of US fans chanting during opponents' gymnastics routines, nor the behavior of any Chinese athletes or spectators.

And that was perfectly clear, except to cult mind cretins who cry out in pain at any suggestion that America shares many of the same qualities that are ascribed to other countries.

I'm not any kind of "xenophobe," liar, and that accusation's pretty hypocritical coming from someone who clearly sees America as the villain in any story.

They were probably told to start a fight knowing the chinese government. If they didn't they'd probably be taken outside and executed. They were going to get their @sses kicked in front of ther own people like they do in every sport they play against the united states and couldn't handle it. Just wait, we will kick their @sses in the upcoming olympics.

America still needs to apologize though because who else are we going to pay less than minimum wage to put together our cr@p and take advantage of. Without america having every single thing we got "made in china" that country would fall apart. We are doing THEM a favor.

They had to stop the game with all the pee-pee on the basketball court. Too slippery to play.
