Maybe if the news actually cared a little bit more about the write-up on soccer teams in China, then the people would care more about soccer. It is hard to have an article that states how poor Chinese soccer is and that they should schedule matches at better times and encourage children participation when glaring errors are made. Above they posted the same paragraph twice! Apparently Chinese soccer is a joke twice over!
Can’t you just see the editor saying, “Yeah, and throw something in there about soccer while you are at it…”?
And while we are on the subject, why can’t SCMP just let you read the paper online? Why do they have to lock you into a 14-day trial? It is so annoying. Here is the online article but I don’t think you will be able to see it. The good news is that they corrected the mistake online.
