Merge[edit]

I was bold and went ahead and did this merge, since there is a section regarding the recently-added religious content at the bottom of this article already. There is obviously no need for disambiguation here. I also removed language from the Intro section emphasizing a difference between "sacred" and "secular" cockfighting.

Intro[edit]

"Not to be confused with the religious, spiritual and sacred cockfight," - What? Is this for real? 60.241.46.15 (talk) 08:35, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

I have removed that attempt at disambiguating the subject. This is not how that can be done, whether in prose or as a prefacing note. __meco (talk) 06:59, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

new religious/spiritual content[edit]

There seem to be some issues with this new content. Namely, some of it is not even about cockfighting, but rather about the birds themselves and imagery depicting them, and that there may be some synthesis going on. If there is that much to say about the role of the cock, be it fighting or not, in various religious and spiritual traditions I would suggest that such material be moved to seperate article on that topic. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:08, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

An admirable suggestion indeed in hopes of improving the encyclopedia and it then follows to be a worthwile project. Naturally, the possible synthesis issue to be addressed first and a clearer separation of individual statements that may also be lending to that appearance. All Worlds (talk) 00:13, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

I am going to go ahead and edit the section in this article re:religious cockfighting so that it is at least intelligible. Unfortunately I do not have the constitution to tackle the sacred cockfight article itself at the moment. Niado (talk) 23:34, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Adding content and some arrangements[edit]

I worked first on the section "Regional variations" subsection "Latin America", creating a new subsection: "Cuba" and adding content with its reference. Later worked on the section "Legal issues" creating a new subsection:"Latin America" with a subsection:"Cuba" to which added few content fitting with the topic. Finally I took the section "In popular culture", splitting the whole content into the following subsections: "In music", "In visual arts", "In literature", "In martial arts" and "In videogames". Then added the first paragraph of the subsection "In visual arts" with some more content, references and images of period paintings which might be of interest for the readers. None of the original content of the paragraphs was eliminated nor modify --Cacucho (talk) 18:07, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Religious section[edit]

Could someone, with more knowledge than me, cleanup the religious section. The Indonesian section under 'regional variants' contains a decent section on cockfighting in Balinese Hinduism, with a bit more referencing it could probably be moved down? JTdale Talk 23:37, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Suitable Image[edit]

The firtst image, caotioned Cockfight in London, c. 1808 might not be a good choice. If you look carefully, it seems to be a satirical joke - the two birds are peacefully pecking a the ground while violent brawls have broken out between audience members.2001:8B0:2AF:AAA9:C478:F8B5:64D:8079 (talk) 07:22, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
