    I love rodeos/bullfighting. My favorite part is when someone takes a horn to the gut, or gets knocked over and then stomped right on the fcuking head.

    10 secs fancy, 10 secs and you find this. Which shows this is not Alvaro and this posture is called desplante(just showmanship if you like that sort of thing). Also Torero is spanish for bullfighter not the name of the person.

    Collapsed Post:

    @adambrydon-True but their are plenty of other sites depicting this. If ppl weren`t so lazy, but then its why they are here :/

    Another Article this. Says, "Munera`s last fight didn`t end in his emotional collapse, it ended when a bull gored his leg, threw him around and destroyed his spine, leaving him paralyzed for life."

    If 2 links weren`t enough, here`s a third. It`s not him and it it only took 1 min out of my life. Shorter then it took fancy to post this image on IAB and come up with a false comment.

    A sad photo. It`s as if the bull is asking,"Why are you doing this to me? I`ve done nothing to you to deserve this!" I`ve seen bullfighting twice, though never in a country where the bull is slain in the ring. The bulls often appear bewildered, both by their surroundings and by the acts against them in the ring. The bullfighters are skilled, but the sport is both sad and unfair.

    That picture actully isn`t of Alvaro Munera, but I urge people to look Munera up. He made quite an awesome transformation.

    I`ve always hated bullfighting. I definitely agree with broizfam that it`s unfair. The bulls have no idea what is going on, while the bullfighters do. And then they get upset when a bull gores one of the matadors. Like what did you expect it to do? If someone is attacking your central nervous system, I think you`d fight back too.

    "bullfighting" is a bloodsport, plain and simple: it`s not a `fight` at all: it`s a slaughter. It`s "fixed", the outcome is never in doubt, the humans cheat on top of all that!

    Hey Spain and Mexico! Just put seats alongside the killing floor at the local slaughterhouses!

    Any nation that considers this "sport" is unfit to exist.

    @broizfam Not really payback, that`s a rodeo. The bulls survive rodeo. This is actual, gory payback.

    And another for good measure

    You know what, Fancy? All you`re doing here is proving that you`re either really really dumb, and lazy, or that you`re just one big fat nasty troll. Which is it?

    Yeah. I know it wasn`t real payback. Was looking to lighten things up a bit since so many were taking the opportunity to denigrate Fancy.

    "Fancy? ...you`re either really really dumb, and lazy, or that you`re just one big fat nasty troll. Which is it?"

    @blackcatseye: the answer is Big Fat Troll.
    Also lazy, veeeery lazy! (lolz!)

    BUT! It`s HIS SITE! So he can troll-lo-lo ALL HE LIKES!

    We can continue to complain of course, lolz! But he won`t refund our membership fees!!!
    (that`s a joke see? It`s FREE so why complain? Oh yeah, aside from complaining being FUN of course!)

    @blackcatseye: On a side note, are you Tsundere?

    "so many were taking the opportunity to denigrate Fancy."
    @brozifan: The "double post" after F5 is one of the "Mysteries of IAB" eh?
    And usually @FancyLad has to $$ PAY $$ for denigration, so I think he doesn`t mind it here...

    "to sit on the strip around the ring after the sword has been placed in the bull is a common desplante, or act of defiance"
