definitely the best blood sport
it requires special skills from both man who breeds and prepares the fowl.......and the skills of the fowl itself in fighting.

golf was considered a hobby for old people a couple of decades ago... now it's much of a sport as thumb wrestling!... thanks to ESPN. :D

more sport than chess...
when you admit defeat...thats sport..
when you congratulate the winner...thats sport...
when you win in a battle...thats more sport...
i think in every battle theres is sportmanship

James Wolf asked if Horse Racing is a sport. I got your drift James, cockfighting is in line with Horse Racing...they have their distinct identity, not to be considered anything else but themselves.
Cockfighting is cockfighting...hehehe.

Ang pagkaka-alam ko libangan ito, dibersiyon at sugal.
Sport kapag di ka nainis.
Inis talo diyan.

November 5th, 2005, 10:05 AM
Well our whole life is a gamble...whoever says no then he is inside a cave or something, hehehe.

: COMPETITIVE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY- involving physical exertion or skill,governed by rules and sometimes engaged in professionally.
:COMPETITVE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AS A GROUP- competitive physical activities considered collectively as a group.
:PASTIME-an active pastime participated in pleasure or exercise.
the chickens do the physical activity, humans initiates the physical exertion of chickens governed by rules as a group and do it as a pleasure. so will this be okey as description of cockfighting as a sport? i hope so :teeth:

i myself consider it as sports but after reading
our cockfighting law i have second thought . .

COCKFIGHTING?İİİİİİİİall OF THE ABOVE PLUS IT IS A VICEİ
November 5th, 2005, 01:50 PM
i dont know the real status but used to be the franchise of cockpit is governed by the games and amusement board, a governing body of different sport leagues and association. when i type "sport of cockfighting" in my computer and click it, it directs me to links cockfighting as a sport per se. so cockfighting is accepted as a sport universally. :lol:
November 5th, 2005, 01:52 PM
HOw the hell did they consider World Series Poker As a sport anyway? Its in ESPN and promoted as a sport. I t agree to james wolf's comparison and Kidd's point.
Horse trainers condition their brute before an upcoming event, the same way handlers and owners prepare the roosters they would field in the competition they choose. There is skill and knowledge involve to do it right and every participant is on to get an edge. the difference is in cockfighting there is no take 2 or second chance for the loser.. That's just the way it is.

A Game is considered a Sport when it is in the Olympics.
So Cockfighting is a Game.
ESPN examples X-GAMES.
"SIPA" is our National Sport but whos playing it?
November 8th, 2005, 11:34 AM
it is not just a sport... it is a passion ... a culture embedded in the filipinos...:)
November 8th, 2005, 02:30 PM
why don't you guys ask former cong. peping cojuangco he is known sabungero and now the phil. olympic chairman. maybe he can include it in the olympics :lol:
November 8th, 2005, 02:32 PM
not just a sport....
it is a vocation
i love this game
November 8th, 2005, 05:10 PM
basketball, soccer,baseball etc. is a game bullfighting, car racing, boxing, cock fighting etc. is a sport. just me:D :D
November 8th, 2005, 06:07 PM
Many don't consider it as a sport, but for us who knows about it, we consider it as a sport. Me too I consider it a sport. Just look at those sports that involves full contact, like boxing, kick boxing, karate etc, many of this sports end up being beaten up or even even dead. And it involves bigger amount of money:teeth:
It will become a vice if you end up losing evrything including your family!
But to me it's passion, entertainment , national culture that's why I LOVE THIS GAME !
November 8th, 2005, 09:57 PM
I would always consider it as a sport, some would say it's a plain Gambling, but it depends on a person who are involve in it.
If you're a Sabungero you're not a Gambler, then sabong is a Sport!! And I LOVE IT!!
November 8th, 2005, 11:54 PM
It is a Sport,a Passion,our Heritage and my Life.Always Proud to be a Sabungero forever........:rbounce:

I've been fighting cocks for over 40 years and still do not consider it a sport. For me it is gambling.
November 9th, 2005, 10:36 PM
gambling if you're betting more than what you can afford or
even betting what should have been alloted for the family.
its recreation if you just enjoy and see how your cock win and
perform in the pit with minimal bet to make it more exciting
so you can have some money afterwards to spent with your
friends or family :D
November 10th, 2005, 12:00 AM
Whether you bet minimal or millions it is still gambling. I bet either way. I love it. Will I complain if they ban it in the future, No. Right now while it's still in existence, I'm enjoying every bit of it. My 2 cents.
November 10th, 2005, 01:37 AM
Sport or not...LET'S JUST DO IT! with NO FEAR!
and most of all...ENJOY IT!
November 10th, 2005, 05:55 AM
certainly its not gambling, its the people that gambles.
without gambling, cockfighting can exist just like boxing.
