fair bullfighting

Make bullfighting less predictable (and more entertaining)

Make bullfights a more even contest by removing the picadors, swords, horses etc. The matador could keep his cape and would also get a horned helmet in order to keep the 'fight' fair. Also, line the arena with 12 foot walls to prevent any pussy-footed matadors from making a cowardly exit before the crowd has been thoroughly entertained. I'm sure Hemingway would approve.

       I hate bullfighting, but derive great pleasure from watching Matadors get trampled and gored. I say keep it unfair, but the other way around, like, put lots of weights on them or get them really drunk before the fight.

       Put the aforementioned horned helmet and some strap-on bull<obligatory post/>dyke</obligatory post>-sized testicles on the matador.

       How about sport: spectator.

       I personally prefer the Cretan version where the human adversary had to wait for the bull's charge, grab the horns, jump over the animal and land behind it.

       I don't think Rosie O'Donnell is busy. Maybe we could give her a call.

       Hey, that's not nice. She has a weight advantage.

       10 cranked up 250 pound matadors wearing horned helmets against one 2500 pound bull?   

       Might be more fun to watch.

       Baked in Portugal. They don't kill the bull, but run rings around it, slapping it, etc. Does anyone know if this is done in Brazil too?
