    Inaccurate reporting:
    I came across this article and happen to know JimmyLee Caldwell. Sadly his football career is seriously misrepresented in this article. Not only did he never play a down during an actual game at the UA, he didn't even suit up. He walked on to the team for one semester before dropping out of college completely.

    Just thought you should check your facts a little better before publishing complete fabrications.

    I think it is inhumane the way animals are treated at a Rode for pure enjoyment...sport.

    Wrestling steer to the ground, tie-down roping In team roping a calf, chasing of pigs, etc.. The list could go on.

    These animals must feel intense fear being chased, roped then tossed to the ground. Not to mention being hurt in the process.

    I would call this bulling (no pun intended)...Animal Abuse.

    It doesn't matter how many generations have been treating animals inhumanly...the fact is...it is cruel the way the animals are treated.

    Guess it makes the cowboys feel like "real" men to chase a small animal and rope it down or to ride an angry bull...for SHAME on you!
