BASKETBALL BRAWL

The benches cleared ... the fists flew ... chairs were thrown -- all during what was SUPPOSED to be a friendly basketball game between Georgetown University and a professional Chinese team a few hours ago.  

According to reports, tensions were running high at Olympic Sports Center Stadium in Beijing during the game between GU and the Bayi Rockets of the Chinese Basketball Association.

But things hit a fever pitch during the 4th quarter, when members of both teams got extra-physical during a scramble for a loose ball ... and suddenly, it was full-on pandemonium.

A rep for Georgetown told CBS Sports no one was injured in the fight.

The Chinese team clearly started the whole thing so why are people coming out with all this bs about ghetto thugs from Georgetown and crap??? The guy grabbed a loose ball and got it down court to his teammate and the Chinese dude flipped and their bench was all out there beating on one guy. And excuse Georgetown for being a bit irked by that and getting out their and defending their guy. What isn't being reported is that this game was all but rigged. Up to that point in the game the Chinese team had taken over 50 free throws compared to just 5 for Georgetown...

Oh the irony of the complaints. Chinese officials should have "cracked down on the dissent." I thought thugish brawls is something they learned from watching american sport on tv. All sports should addopt the NHL's civilised 1 on 1 fighting rules. 3rd man in fight instant ejection and suspension. As soon as one knee is down fight is over and any further violence is bad for all sports.

As Jon Stewart said american congress should be more like british parliament (where they yell scream and abuse oneanother) instead of the dull show trial courtroom like behavior seen in the highly corupt congress and senate.

As for violence has not the USA declared war 200 times in the last 300 years or is 300 wars in last 200 years. Used Atomic weapons, depleted uraniam, chemical weapons and mass torture in Gitmo etc

I look forward to offical Chinese basketball responce they have recently kicked one of their best ever winter olympians for repeated drunken brawling

GT was not playing the national team. They were playing a team that is linked to PLA- People Liberation Army. So the players and their fans are not of the same type of China people we see here in the US. Those players are fighters with lots of ego and pride.. not much different than some us ballers. The China coach during the game walked over and got in Thompson's face.. wow.. who does that.. they should have stopped the game then..

Some reporters are saying "tensions where high" No they weren't stop trying to make excuses for these thugs. Americans Sports are played buy thugs. They act like they are in a gang. The gang in the streets have more sense then they do.
