BEIJING Air Max 90 Sale Online , June 6 (Xinhuanet) -- Jack Ma Yun, executive chairman of Alibaba Group, said Thursday that the 1.2 billion yuan ($192 million) bid for a 50 percent stake in China's top soccer club Guangzhou Evergrande was to bring more joy not only to the team's fans but to all Chinese soccer fans.
Maybe the head of the ？e-commerce giant really does not know much about ？soccer as he revealed at the news ？conference. Co-owning the high-profile club could impede the real progress of other ？Chinese Super League (CSL) clubs.
Look at what the Guangzhou-？based club did in the transfer window after their sensational 2013 season: They brought Zheng Long from Qingdao ？Jonoon for 2.3 million yuan, Rene Junior from Brazil's Tombense for 1 million euros ($1.35 million) and Italy international Alessandro Diamanti from Italy's Bologna for 6.9 million euros.
They even made a 50 million yuan bid for ？Dalian Aerbin's talented forward Yu Dabao Air Max Sale Online , but were turned down by the 26-year-old Aerbin ？captain.
Such lavish moves have pushed other big CSL clubs, like Beijing Guoan and Shandong Luneng, to splash out money to strengthen their squads, in a bid to challenge the reigning champions Nike Air Max 2018 Sale Clearance , which has rewarded Chinese soccer fans with more entertaining CSL games.
As Xu Jiayin, boss of ？Evergrande, promised a competitive all-Chinese team, ？Evergrande's potential targets are from other CSL clubs Nike Air Max 2017 Sale Clearance , as they wait for their youth system to become more productive.
Soccer oligarchy hurts. Borussia Dortmund of ？Germany know how it feels.
Their promising attacking trio, Marco Reus, ？Robert ？Lewandowski and Mario ？Goetze, who had helped the club to reach the European ？Champions League final against ？Bayern ？Munich in the 2012-13 season Nike Air Max 90 Sale Clearance , were split thanks to ？Bayern ？Munich poaching Goetze.
Dortmund then fell further behind runaway Bayern this season in the Bundesliga and now Lewandowski is leaving for the Bavarians.
Bayern's transfer policy has left the German top flight a one-horse race and boring. Chinese fans don't want similar things to happen in the CSL.
Song Weiping, chairman of Hangzhou Greentown, had ？offered Ma a share in the Hangzhou club, which has a quality youth training system and ？plenty of potential stars in their first team. Ma rejected it and turned to Evergrande Nike Air Max Sale Clearance , aiming to help Evergrande grab more Asian Champions League titles.
Ma's snub may upset Greentown fans, but it should upset all fans of Chinese soccer, as what Ma missed is a chance to bringing real progress to the Chinese game.

SYDNEY， March 10 (Xinhua) -- A record number of motorists killed on Australia's Victorian roads in 2016 had drugs in their system， new data has revealed.
People with illicit drugs in their system accounted for a third of all deaths on Victorian roads in 2016， Victoria Police revealed on Friday.
The statistics showed that 58 motorists killed in 2016 had been using drugs， up from 36 in 2015 and 27 in 2014.
Alcohol-related motorist deaths also went up 60 percent in 2016.
Victoria Police released the figures as it plans to ramp up roadside drug and alcohol testing in Victoria ahead of a public holiday on Monday.
"What is of real concern to us is over the last couple of years we've seen increase on increase for those who have died where there has been illicit drugs present，" Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer told News Limited on Friday.
"The community really needs to get their heads around what sort of impact this has. We're not here to be the moral police around illicit drugs."
"We want to talk around separating the behaviours. We don't have as many people using drugs as use alcohol but it is clear that the use of illicit drugs and driving is a recipe for disaster."
A total of 100，000 roadside drug tests were carried out in Victoria in 2016 with 8700 testing positive. Methamphetamines were the most common substance followed by cannabis.
Fryer said that people who drove under the influence were endangering innocent road users as well as themselves.
"We are getting people killing themselves but we're also getting people who are using illicit drugs who are killing others，" he said.
"We're really concerned that people think it's OK to use drugs and drive. It's not."
Victoria is on track to record its best ever road toll， with five fewer people having been killed on the roads to date than the historic low.
PYONGYANG, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Monday said efforts by the United States to isolate it through economic sanctions and military pressure were doomed to fail.
A commentary by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) accused Washington of "spitting out" military threats against the DPRK and pressuring other countries to sever their diplomatic Air Max 2018 Sale Clearance , economic and trade ties with Pyongyang.
The KCNA said with the world favoring a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, it was high time for the United States to listen to the voice of the international community appealing for peace in the region.
The commentary came as South Korea, the United States and Japan kicked off a two-day maritime exercise to track ballistic missiles, possibly from the DPRK Air Max 2017 Sale Clearance , in waters near the Korean Peninsula and Japan, South Korean media reported Monday.
The joint drill followed the DPRK's test-launch on Nov. 29 of Hwasong-15, which Pyongyang claimed was an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the U.S. mainland.
Ahead of the trilateral missile-tracking drill, the sixth of its kind Air Max 90 Sale Clearance , the combined air forces of South Korea and the United States had staged their biggest-ever joint air force exercise on the Korean Peninsula. The drill on Dec. 4 mobilized about 230 fighter jets, bombers and other combat planes.
