Crab Fights

How bored do you have to be to stage a crab fight?

I made it thru the video, and was disgusted. In nature, these males would scrap a little for territory, and more for a mate. But to see these poor creatures, trapped, taunted, and doomed by thier own nature made me sick. I'm no PETA fan, and I love crab cakes, but these people should be prosecuted, even for tortruring something as low as crustcean lives. And for money? Bah! :shut:

pitting two mostly brainless creatures against each other for amusement or profit is one of the cruelest and lowest things that can be done.

that is why i hate boxing.

my apologies fuzzyfoot if i offended you. while it was meant as a joke, i do not like boxing. when strong athletic men are left with brain damage and other problems such as ms from the injuries inflicted in this 'sport' it hardly seems worth the entertainment value. You can get hurt in a lot of other sports, even head injuries, but not primarily repeated head injuries. i agree about the promoters, it is unconsionable that obscene amounts of money are made by destroying the health and mental function of these young men. Money the athletes themselves only see a comparitively small protion of.

Once in '83, I shared a short, small jet ride from Atlanta, GA to Birmingham, AL, with a group of about 7 professional wrestlers from what was then the WWF, and a few aides. They were some of the coolest people i ever met in traveling. Some of them i knew had recently "fought" each other in the ring, and here they were joking and having a great time with each other aboard the plane, like the best of friends. They were all members of the Actor's Guild, of course. Boxing is different, and tho i respect those who choose the profession, it is an eventual deadend street, with significant brain damage almost guaranteed over the long term. Now we are learning that American-style football is basically doing the same thing, in a different way. Championships last a year - brain damage is forever, and the fame and money are fleeting. Is it worth it?
