Entry Fee, Plus Bet Each Fight, Less Promoter Profit, Less Cockpit Cut
An entry fee is needed to field a team. Then in each gamecock fight, a minimum bet.
This competition is plagued by criminal minds. Most do not know it is happening even. How do they do it?
Criminal minds will try to take advantage of the betting public and especially on the bets of the owners of gamecocks themselves. The criminal minds can enter several entries many of which might be the weak teams and maybe one strong team. Or vice-versa. Worst will be that one gamecock out of many for the criminal minds teams will be set to lose.
The total prize is only a portion of the total entry fees paid by the participating teams. The total prize is divided between the champion and the runner up. The promoter earn a load of money doing nothing. Cockpit owner profits not just from the gate receipts and food but a big cut on the accumulated entry fees. Even pitter/handler and gaffer got a share of the accumulated entry fees.
All gamecocks of a team have to fight even if the team lost already a gamecock.
Philippines has this system and that need to be changed.
Entry Fee, No Bet Each Fight, No Losers, Winner Take All
An entry fee to field a team. Then in each gamecock fight, no organized betting.
Only no losers can continue to grab the prize. Once a lost is received, the team is out of the running. The loser team may be called if there is no match between no losers teams (but any wins for a loser team do not count towards the championship anymore).
This tournament will be joined by teams that knows “Champion or Nothing”. Runner up do not get a thing. Promoter do not get a thing. Cockpit owner only profits from the affordable gate receipts and food. Pitter/handler and gaffer do not get a share (they are part of the team already).
If the criminal minds try what they did in the first on the list, they will not profit and they will lose all the way.
United States has this system and that need to be maintained and spread worldwide. To have a fair tournament.
