  1. It's timely that this group is formed . Some antagonist to the sport are initiating strategies to ultimately stop cockfighting in our country. Their initial approach to their plan is tricky. Their time frame is indefinite. This is what happened in other countries that previously held the sport. One of the means to protect our sport is to put honest afficionados in our government. It guarantees political protection.

  2. To protect our sport is not only through legal vigilance but also in promoting celebrations that showcase cultural significance such as, "PAGSALABUK". Our forefathers, unite those days in merrymaking with rituals, songs, dances, pangasi and nevertheless highlighted with our legendary sport PALABUK SA MANOK. This in one way or another saves the sport from annihilation by people who strives to end our pursuit of entertainment. Good Luck!!!

  3. The acts done by individual, group, or any organization taking right away gamefowls, usurping the right of ownership in forms of stealing, confiscation or for whatever reasons not in consonance of voluntary disposal by the owner should be equated with costly consequence to refrain future incidents to happen in the Philippines like what's happening in other countries. A law such as this would help preserve our sport and protect our Sabongeros from any legal mess.

  4. In my opinion I'd rather invest in breeding gamefowls than in pigs..this is a wise investment and less stressful..who says sabong is a mans world..we women also enjoy it specially if our hubby wins..and they stay in our house rather than go out to have gimiks
