    "Who's going to object to chickens fighting like humans do? Everybody wins."

    Okla. Lawmaker Proposes Rooster Boxing

    OKLAHOMA CITY - With cockfighting now banned in Oklahoma, one legislator is proposing a blood-free alternative: fitting roosters with little boxing gloves and letting them slug it out.

    "Who's going to object to chickens fighting like humans do? Everybody wins," said Democratic state Sen. Frank Shurden, a protector of the gamefowl industry and a longtime defender of cockfighting, in which birds are fitted with razor-like spurs and often battle to the death.

    Oklahoma voters banned cockfighting in 2002. The practice is still legal in Louisiana and New Mexico.

    "To me it answers everything. It saves the industry, takes blood sport out and generates revenue for Oklahoma," Shurden said.

    Janet Halliburton, a lawyer who led the drive to ban cockfighting, dismissed Shurden's idea as the first step in a scheme to bring back the sport.
    "It's easier to give up. I'm not a very vocal player. I lead by example. I take the attitude that I've got to go out and do it. Because of who I am, I've got to give everything I've got to come back."
    -Ken Griffey Jr.

    Everybody wins in a good cockfight.

    I was sure that the filter would kill that word.
