Alright, with the new season set to kick off next weekend, I've started my preseason predictions at the blog. I started off with the bulls, so go check it out if you have a few minutes. Also, feel free to make your own list for discussion.
I spent the entire first season of PBR learning about the riders and the rules of the game, but all of the bulls you two have listed are ones that I definitely recognize as heavy hitters with high point totals. The only one that I didn't recalled right away is Troubador. I'll certainly pay even more attention to the bulls this year and watch for him specifically. In 2007, though, the two that I was always happy to see were White Magic and Copperhead Slinger. I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform this year.
Scene of the Crash was just outside my top 5 and is definitely capable of winning the award this year. There are probably 10 bulls or so that are a step above the rest, but it's hard to decide between those 10.

It just seems to me that Copperhead is as tough, but more unpredictable than Big Bucks after the 4 second mark. I think Big Bucks loses just abit after the rider stays past 4. I'm with you guys though, it's way to early. Sit back an enjoy!
Copperhead looked good but I am going to have to go with Chicken on a Chain to repeat. Atlanta was a fluke for him and I don't think that he will be penalized much in the voting due to the out. He also steps it up at the finals each year and with the new way that the Bull of the Year is selected I don't think he will have any problem being in the top five this year and will take the title again.
PS Gangster that is going to cost you $5 LOL!!!
"All I have to do is really learn how to dance with a bull. You just have to remember that he's definitely leading and you have to follow. You can't get behind at all. If you keep in time with him, you're all right. I just wish it wasn't such a hard dance to learn."- Fred Boettcher
