This is a Sport that will never die.Its not like dog fighting.This sport is a heritage in the south.There are pits everywhere,If you want to go listen for the "Cocks Crow".The mexicans will fight them in their homes.At one time everyone was a part of it,even the preachers.History don't tell you this,they just let you know what they want you to.Blacks and Whites fought together and got along.This is and was a Gentlemans sport.Did you know there was a pit in the White House?Do you know where the name Honest Abe came from?Another thing the gov. took away.I say......PIT EM!......NOW HANDLE THAT!....COUNT ME!

By the way I live in North Myrtle Beach.I just have a wireless card,so it depends where I'm at as to what shows.And you would be shocked to know who fights Cocks and who shows up at fights.I know Doctors,Lawyers and Judges,... I will say has been in attendance!But that was yesterday and yesterday is gone.And Remember don't bark when you are in the dark!

The Cockers wanted to change the name of the town to Dunghill. They settled for Cullowhee. That's better than the next choice, Rooster Poop!!Rooster Poop??? LOL

Cockfighting is not a sport and its not a heritage, its for Redneck hillbilly people to have some country ass thing to bet on, legally,if dogfighting illegal, this is to.
