Besides stopping

Aesop's well-known fable about the tortoise and the hare sees the tortoise coming out on top Comprar Air Force One Blancas Low , due to the hare's arrogance.

The moral is clear: Slow and steady wins the race.

The NFL will certainly be hoping that is the case, because that is the model they have adopted in trying to gain a foothold in the Chinese market, and, so far Comprar Air Force One Blancas , it seems to be working.

Jerry Rice, recently ranked as the -greatest player of all time by NFL Films, is currently on a tour of China to promote the sport, following in a line of big names who have made the trip east Comprar Air Force One 07 Mid , including Barry Sanders, LaDainian Tomlinson, Reggie Bush and Joe Montana, to meet a small Comprar Air Force One 07 Low , but growing, fanbase who appreciate the effort involved in a 11-day promotional tour.

Other sports obsess with unearthing the next Yao Ming or Li Na, but the NFL's -ultimate goal is developing that fanbase, -according to NFL China Managing Director Richard Young. The key Comprar Air Force One 07 High , Young says, is to communicate with the fans directly, rather than approach the market from a business point of view. He also says it's essential to account for the uniqueness of the Chinese market - something that other sports seem to have ignored.

The Arena Football League (the highest level of professional indoor American football in the US), for example Comprar Air Force One 07 , has repeatedly announced plans for a league in China that would appear to be widely overambitious even to the casual observer. Marty Judge, one of the businessmen behind the venture, claimed this summer that indoor football would take China by storm, despite being a niche sport in the US.

Judge is not the first westerner to have been blinded by the potential size of the Chinese market - and he won't be the last - but Young www.comprarairforceone.es , in contrast, has spent more than two decades in Asia and knows that imposing the American model on the Chinese simply won't work.

The NFL learned that the hard way, rushing into the market in 2007, before having to drastically downsize its plans for China. But in the four years since Young has taken control Comprar Air Force One España , the number of those considered to be fans in China has grown from 1 million to more than 14 million, while new media has seen 1,000 percent growth over the same period.

While the NFL would of course embrace a Chinese player, it isn't trying to develop one. The hare would no doubt argue against that plan Comprar Air Force One Baratas , but the NFL is happy backing the tortoise.

BEIJING, May 19 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. military aircraft carried out reconnaissance close to China's island of Hainan Tuesday, in the country's most recent provocation against China's legitimate rights and interests.

In total disregard of China's call not to disturb peace in the South China Sea, Washington recently has been busy flexing its military muscle at China's doormat.

Last week, the U.S. warship, USS William P. Lawrence, intruded into Chinese waters near the Nansha Islands without the permission of the Chinese government.

Such acts, carried out in the name of either "routine patrols" or "freedom of navigation," are nothing but blatant provocations against China's maritime security interests.

Such dangerous and irresponsible activities also significantly increase the risk of military misjudgment in the region.

The Pentagon said that two Chinese fighter jets carried out an intercept of the U.S. aircraft Tuesday in an "unsafe" manner.

While accusing Chinese aircraft of carrying out an "unsafe" intercept, Washington seems to forget that its frequent close reconnaissance jeopardizing China's sea and air safety are a true source of worry as they could result in accidents and put China and U.S. military security at risk.

China's countermeasures are reasonable, necessary and wholly legitimate as the U.S. acts have already posed serious threats to China's sovereignty and security interests.

And compared with those countries which sent their military planes to others' doorsteps, China cherishes more the safety of its personnel and equipment.

There is every reason to demand that the United States end its "close-in" aerial and naval surveillance of China and stop muddying the waters in the region so as to fish for political gains.

China, which holds no "excessive claim" of sovereignty in South China Sea, believes in communication and dialogue. Neither muscle-flexing nor arbitrary intervention will shake its resolve to safeguard its sovereignty and maritime rights.

Besides stopping its provocative acts, Washington should also honor its commitment of not taking sides on the South China Sea issue, if peace and stability is what it really wants to see and achieve in the region.
