22
Found 10th Jul 2009
No sympathy from me - about time they left the bulls alone .

er he's Spanish "A young Spanish man man has been gored to death during the traditional Running of the Bulls festival in the Spanish city of Pamplona."

(NB : Earlier Spanish media reports had wrongly claimed the victim was British, prompting the foreign office to investigate the claims. - title amended)

Never understood this craze........ it's like standing or trying run away from a car that's going to run you over...... complete nutters !!

Serves em right (the man not the bull)

'No sympathy from me'

brilliant - someone who thinks exactly like me
you take the risk - you should know the price to possibly pay......

I personally am not in the camp of 'it's cruel so it serves him right'.

I'm more in the 'you're getting chased by a bull by your own choice - death is possible so have a sense of humour about it' camp.

I think I just felt the world get a little bit lighter.

They will when they get the bill for shipping his corpse home.

Sorry the guy died. Probably full of alcohol and bravado. Dont think events like this should still be held. I know it may be tradition but its cruel. Only surprised that there are not more tragedies.

Says on sky news that he's a spaniard.

If someone takes part in a cruel "sport" they have to accept the same penalty as the animal if they lose.
I mean, if only one side suffers a penalty that isn't "sport" is it?

On that premise I'd love Newcastle to play every game with no possible chance of losing.
Now would that be "sport"?
