  China News Service Client, Beijing, July 16th (Zhang Yifan) Wang Xing and the Chinese football players' physical fitness battle is "a wave" unfinished. Beijing University Wang Xiaodong has sent dozens of microblogs in a row, pointing the finger at Chinese football.

  This time, football was directly drawn to the opposite of education.

  In the video, Wang Xiaodong said fiercely, saying with disdain: "When it comes to contribution, even if the national football team returns to win the World Cup, the contribution is not as good as Peking University Tsinghua University. You can't even play in Thailand. The contribution is a big negative." In addition, he has repeatedly Attacking the fans in the comments, also said that "anti-intellect will kill this nation."

  Although it has not been clearly stated what is "anti-intellectual", all the comments in its Weibo and comments have been directed at Chinese football and fans.

  Competitive sports, speak with results. Since the national football team is still not far away from the "unsatisfactory", then Wang Xiaodong criticized the national football team, in fact, there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, Chinese football at this stage really needs the spur of the society. In other words, if Wang Xiaodong had only used the national football to get through the "mouth addiction", perhaps it would not cause an uproar.

  After all, he is far from the first and will not be the last.

  However, unlike ordinary netizens, as a public figure with more than two million fans, Wang Xiaodong has spoken badly on the Internet and even rose to the level of greeting his family, which is obviously not decent.

On June 15, 2013, the national football team played a warm-up match with the Thai team at the Hefei Olympic Sports Center in Anhui. Finally, after a 90-minute fierce battle, the national football team 1-5 defeated their opponents again and scored a humiliating defeat.

  The goal of Meituan’s boss Wang Xing’s sudden release of the “physical theory” is still unknown, but this lip-and-mouth battle caused by him was eventually led to the issue of the contribution of education and football. It's a bit "not understandable". The loss of the national football team because of the "anti-intelligence" of the fans is also really confusing.

  The results of Chinese football are unsatisfactory. As a football player, it is not surprising to bear the pressure of public opinion from the society. However, Dong Fangzhuo and Fan Zhiyi all "stepped forward", and it was not a sudden brain fever. So many countries in the world develop football, but there has almost never been such a strange view that "soccer is not as important as education".

  As the world's largest sport, football does have its unique charm. But if it is distinguished only by "contribution", it is put on the opposite side of education, which does seem to be somewhat narrow.

  In fact, physical education is also an inseparable part of education. In the talent training system, it is hard to say that the two are artificially separated. Education advocates the comprehensive development of morality, intelligence, physical fitness, beauty, and labor. It is incomplete without any of them.

  All walks of life have their value of existence, and each should also have corresponding respect. "Even if the National Football World Cup wins the championship, its contribution is not as good as that of Qingbei."

  The small shop selling breakfast for a lifetime may not be as good as the one-day running of the Meituan founded by Wang Xing. So in terms of the value of GDP contribution, should such small shops be despised? Maybe even if the national football team won the World Cup championship n years later, the contribution is indeed not as great as that of Tsinghua Peking University, but this is not the reason for obliterating every contribution.

  In some people's words, there seems to be an invisible chain of contempt, and those who "contribute greatly" should be "superior."

  Tsinghua University and Peking University are colleges and universities longed for candidates from all over the country, and gather the best children from all over the country every year. According to 2017 data, the number of professional football players in China (with a professional contract or training agreement) is only 84422, accounting for only 0.006% of the total population. The difficulty of selecting materials in such a small space can be imagined.

  These data may not be known to everyone. Some judgments say that because the national football team has lost to Thailand, the contribution of the national football team is negative. Such a definition can be called a squat.

  Over the past few years, the national football team has continuously added congestion to the people of the whole country, resulting in a worsening of its "popularity". It is an indisputable fact that the waist board of Chinese football is not hard. Because of its weakness, it seems that no matter who it is, you can feel free to comment. When parents hear that their children are going to play football, they will have the mentality to resist the first time.

Dong Fangzhuo's counterattack

  So those who like football and those who look down on it together create a vicious circle.

  In this vicious circle, Chinese football itself is not innocent, it is understandable. What about others? In addition to ridicule, not all criticism is to spur Chinese football.

  It's hard to look down, just turn around and walk away.

  Dong Fangzhuo said, "In this era, we should give each industry and practitioners the most basic respect, which should become a consensus of the whole society."

  No matter how Chinese football is, at least this sentence is fine. (Finish)
