'Dogs' rant earns China 'keeper ban

GUANGZHOU, China (AP) The tattooed bad boy of Chinese soccer had a message for his critics after the team's opening loss to Japan at the Asian Games, and his candor earned him a suspension.

"It would be flattery to call you fans. You're just a bunch of dogs," the 21-year-old goalkeeper Wang Dalei posted on his microblog after Monday's 3-0 loss. "You bunch of morons are the main reason why Chinese football can't make progress. You throw in stones after a man has fallen into a well."

By Wednesday, Wang's comments had been deleted from his Twitter-like microblog, which has 80,000 followers. But bloggers had been busy reposting screen shots of the offensive messages.
