Because RPS players are athletes.

IFBB Pros are juicemonkeys/criminals who deal/take drugs and who have roid rage issues/meltdowns.

N.B.  For example see queen fatmali.

You make something attainable, more people will pay interest...Thats why the more aesthetic Bodybuilders need to be champions as opposed to the Mass monsters who are not the appeal of mainstream culture... plain and simple...

Bodybuilding of any shape/form (mass monster/aesthetic looking) is not appealing to mainstream culture.

Only people who will be attending PDI are bodybuilding fans/enthusiasts.  Mainstream public could care less about bodybuilding whether they're massive/pleasing to look at/juiced up steroid freak/natural wonder..

I wonder if RPS stars would sue people on an internet board?

Kind of yes and kind of no.  They are no longer interested.  At one time they were interested.  Take into account when Gold's Gym launched there clothing line at Macys in New York or when Arnold and other posed in the NY Museum in front of a couple thousand high brow people.  Look at the shows from the 60's and 70's.  How about the parade in Santa Monica before the Mr. America (?).  At one time many "regular" people enjoyed BB for fun.  Now the IFBB has fucked that up with these huge ugly mass monsters.  Hopefully the PDI will bring back some diginity to BB.
