That's an unusual way of boxing.
2003-02-16 01:03:03 PM  
Mike Tyson's cock not available for comment!
2003-02-16 01:04:31 PM  
And PETA exists why?
2003-02-16 01:04:54 PM  
Considering he dodges the good fighters, I'm guessing he's got a little cock.
2003-02-16 01:05:07 PM  
sure, it's well known Jones raises "game roosters." if PETA thinks they're going to cause him one minute of trouble over it, they're dreaming.
2003-02-16 01:06:48 PM  
He'll probably get screwed out of a win again...hopefully PETA goes down like most of his opponents.
2003-02-16 01:08:14 PM  
roy jones' ranch in cantonment is near here; we had an article in our newspaper about it yesterday. i agree with schmack, nothing's going to come of it. a spokesperson from the sheriff's dep't said they'd received no complaints against jones or against anyone else in regards to cock fighting.

PETA? Roy will probably win this one. Thank god the justice system favors rich athletes....

2003-02-16 01:15:14 PM  
I love PETA ... People Eating Tasty Animals.
2003-02-16 01:15:32 PM  
isn't that NSFW?

I'm sure RJJ will find the time to care.
2003-02-16 01:18:51 PM  
Little Jerry doesn't take a dive for anybody!
2003-02-16 01:19:44 PM  
I haven't watched too many fights lately but which fighters did Roy Jones duck,I thought he was fighting and beating heavyweights a couplke of years ago.
2003-02-16 01:20:44 PM  
I give my roosters the best of food. I give them the best of care. I give them everything they want before I ask them to sacrifice.

Kobe Chicken?
2003-02-16 01:20:51 PM  
Good for them.

They still suck though. Suck big hairy...carrots.
2003-02-16 01:22:53 PM  
Fark sucks.
2003-02-16 01:24:49 PM  
Yeah guys PETA really does suck. We humans should be able to torture animals to our heart's content. They don't have souls or real feelings. And the look on their faces while we do it is simply priceless.
2003-02-16 01:26:37 PM  
Truer words have never been spoken Key_master
2003-02-16 01:32:37 PM  
If the tables were turned, the cocks would do it to us.
2003-02-16 01:34:41 PM  
Yeah guys PETA really does suck. We humans should be able to torture animals to our heart's content. They don't have souls or real feelings. And the look on their faces while we do it is simply priceless.

FINALLY, someone who feels the same way about animals that I do! Goddamn I hate animals. Key_Master, will you carry my child?
2003-02-16 01:38:51 PM  

(you know, because their HQ is in norfolk, VA...which is in the Tidewater region...)
2003-02-16 01:40:27 PM  
Cock fighting is so gay
2003-02-16 01:40:52 PM  
You mean chickens have real feelings? Oh my I hope we haven't offended them in any way.
2003-02-16 01:41:49 PM  
Key_Master I think your'e missing the point. No one is advocating torturing animals. Just because peta says it's bad doesn't make them some enlightened group. The guy on the streetcorner preaching to pigeons doesn't stop being a nutjob just because he said hitler was a bad man.

Peta is an irrational psychotic group that has their heart in the right place. thank you for enforcing their black and white, ignorant, rambling image.
2003-02-16 01:43:16 PM  
you shouldn't sledgehammer a dog to death, but PETA is a bit nuts.
oh yeah, the ACLU is a fark-bucket organization too.
2003-02-16 01:47:52 PM  
I appreciated the Columbia tribute on your website.

/by the way
2003-02-16 01:49:18 PM  
Fark the cockfights, I wanna see drunken moron fights! Cull the gene pool a little more AND have fun, it's a win-win scenario!
2003-02-16 01:53:03 PM  
Let's see the acronym "People Eating Tasty Animals" again.

It's still funny and new, even after 100,000 uses. Maybe do it in a crazy, vertical way, so the letters don't line up.
2003-02-16 01:58:33 PM  
I Soviet Russia, cocks fight you.


Seriously though, its pretty well documented that Roy Jones Jr's hobby is cockfighting. He has been on Real Sports and the Jim Rome show several times talking aboout his...err...cocks.

fark Peta, they are a bunch of media whores. Every week its some new high profile BS.

Pass the steak.
2003-02-16 01:58:34 PM  
do they have fights in the cock-ring -- and doesn't that hurt a bit?
2003-02-16 02:03:27 PM  
And gee, the link is farked. Shocking.
2003-02-16 02:08:24 PM  
Good. He lives in a state where it is illegal. Why should he get away with it when rednecks can't?

Syphyilis has been around for a long time, too, Roy. That doesn't mean it's ok.

2003-02-16 02:09:05 PM  

Roy's got a history of dodging the good fighters. His best move is to move to a different division to avoid the best in his division, then fight patsies in the new division. I'm not saying that he's not a decent fighter, but his reputation is that of avoiding the big fights. Going up to the heavyweight division, Roy? Fight Lennox. Better yet, fight the people he should fight - Trinidad or Michalchevski. Fight Hopkins who he barely beat in 1993.

Roy fights plenty of guys on the downside of their career, then talks about how great he is in the third person. Ruiz, while a champ, isn't nearly the best. If he loses to Ruiz he'll say he isn't really a heavyweight anyway. It's about the biggest chance he's taken in a long time, so that much is to his credit. If he wants to claim to be the best, then fight the best.
2003-02-16 02:10:15 PM  
Is it really any of PITA's business what this man does with his cock?
2003-02-16 02:17:40 PM  
PETA is usually involved in anything that's nowhere near their business.
2003-02-16 02:17:55 PM  

2003-02-16 02:18:18 PM  
Demetrius: Right on 100%

RJJ is a punk who ducks the best.

I hope Louse KTFO of RJJ

It didn't work in Mozilla 1.3, but my IE 6 loaded the page okay. Great, huh?
2003-02-16 02:19:59 PM  
Would PETA be happy if we raised animals in conditions better than we ourselves live in, and then cut off their head with one swift blow, causing instant/painless death? No? Becuase we are still killing them? But bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good.

It's like grampa always said, "You'd complain if you were hung with a new rope."
2003-02-16 02:21:18 PM  
I thought cockfighting was illegal in Florida...

BTW, this is a site called Rumors & Notes we're talking about. Is any of this actually true?
2003-02-16 02:24:36 PM  
It's absolutely true. He's been openly talking about it for years. He has a guy fly in specially-bred birds from Mexico.
2003-02-16 02:26:50 PM

Thanks. I wish our psycho president could work up as much sympathy for our lost astronauts as for the thousands of innocents that are about to get killed in his war.
2003-02-16 02:26:58 PM  
Ain't found a way to kill me yet,
Eyes burn with stinging sweat,
Seems every path leads me to nowhere.
Wife and kids and household pet,
Army Green was no safe bet.
The bullets scream to me from somewhere.

Here they come to snuff the rooster,
Yeah here comes the rooster,
You know he ain't gonna die.

2003-02-16 02:28:07 PM  
Thanks. Right after posting that I noticed the line "Source: The Miami Herald" and smacked myself thrice. I guess that would be the natural extension of boxing, when applied to chickens :-)
2003-02-16 02:28:42 PM  
...uhhhh... the cockfighting, that is...
2003-02-16 02:37:18 PM  
sounds like you don't have a soul or feelings, Key_Master and all those who agreed with him.
2003-02-16 02:46:42 PM  
look...we need less cock, more fighting...unless its foxy down with that...
2003-02-16 02:49:50 PM  
I've been engaged in cock fighting for years and I don't see what's wrong with it. Geez, loosen up people. What you choose to do in order to release a little pent up tension in the privacy of your own home is your business. You won't go blind. You won't get hairy palms. Remember, ummm...


Are we talking about the same thing?
