    Re: Cockfighting raid may be biggest in U.S. history

    Fifty people were charged with misdemeanors punishable by up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine, and were ordered to answer to cockfighting charges in early December, said Paul Levikow, a spokesman for the San Diego County district attorney’s office.
    Philippine connection alleged
    The operation was managed and patronized largely by Filipinos, and fights were staged in the San Diego area, officials told KNSD. But the operation also sent many of its birds to the Philippines, authorities said
    .

    Hmmm didn't Ned say he had to catch an early flight today?
    :P

    Cockfighting is legal in the Philippines, where it is called “sabong” and is considered to be a national pastime. Crowds gather in large arenas seven days a week to wager on their favorite birds.
    Cockfighting is huge in the Philippines. Probably more so than football is here. I went to two Sabongs while I was over there to watch JingJing's brothers, Ned's father in-law & Ned's roosters fight.

    In front of a capacity filled crowd, Ned's cock went limp within 30 seconds.

    But if Ned lives in Connecticut, how can he be linked to a cock fighting ring in San Diego.

    I get the whole animal cruelty part, and the Philippines connection. But I'm just not sure about the severity of Ned's connection.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    LOL! It was a joke because Ned said he had a plane to catch today.

    But to answer your question, don't you think if a person from the Philippines can be connected to cockfighting in California, someone from Connecticut could easily be as well?

    Ned is connected to cockfighting, but in the Philippines where it is legal. Here is pics of two of his roosters. The second pic is the one I believe that was killed almost instantly just after the fight began at the Sabong I attended.
