Gee I guess they don't use "real animals" in the ND rodeos? I have watched CFD for the last 10 years up close...the animals are treated better than the cowboys. This tape that was given to MB20..was only 1 minute of 45 hours of rodeo events.

Matchbox 20 is a fading group of which playing a rodeo is an indication. They just want any kind of publicity they can get.

BIG ups to MB20 for this decision.

Cheytown, you are dilusional.

Korin.. cheytown is correct. animal control officers inspect all animals at events. the CFD is a long standing rodeo with a good record.

Randy, I used to be a Ocoee resident grew up there and went to WOHS.

Hey Korin, I guess the North Dakota State Fair uses fake animals because MB30 is going there the day after they were supposed to be here. CFD has been around 110 years and will continue for many many more to come. Carrie Underwood did the same thing last year then went down to the Greeley Stampede the same year. I guess their animals are fake too but I know for a fact they use the same stock contractors as CFD. I see CFD up close and I have met the vets they use. They do care about the animals and treat them very well.

MB20 decision was based on a 1 minute tape out of 45 hours of rodeo events last year. I doubt it was based on animal rights it was based on the almighty dollar!

MB20 = Lamefest
The fact that they were signed to a rodeo should be some indication.
