Wow..

Men's IFBB Pro shows have been dwindling down in numbers ever since the "brilliant" inception of the new points system (which was copied by the way from other sports, and IS without a doubt suited for sports other than bodybuilding).

Has to be, it is almost as if the pros are competing less, To make top 3 is what used bring in heavy competition cause almost all the pros believe they can make top 3

Post by: MB on July 02, 2012, 06:57:45 AM
Ridiculously poor line-up.  Pro qualifying is watered down so much that men's bodybuilding is starting to look like figure and bikini.  Every show is a list of unrecognizable names.

What about the new york pro? Used to be one of the best shows, right after the Arnold, and this past May there were only..what??..11 guys competing!! The Hartford show this past weekend had no attendance in the audience and again a very small line-up of 13 guys. The earlier 212 shows of the year had 4 and 5 competitors! The IFBB men's is becoming a joke, it's simply not worth the $40 and $50 ticket price tag anymore for small shows and certainly not worth the $100+ for the bigger shows.

On the other hand the bikini and figure shows have 20+ competitor's in each category but they do not draw the crowd in the same way pro bodybuilding does. There's no excitement with these women's categories for anyone.

The weakest line up i have ever seen in a pro show.

There was a Pro show in Toronto recently, or maybe it was Phoenix, that was worse.   ::)

This line-up is proof that there was never a need to have an Olympia qualifying points system.  If you can't enter and win this scrub show, you shouldn't be anywhere near an Olympia stage.

The geniuses that thought that up are probably feeling pretty dumb by now, epic back-fire.  :o

Ahmad Ahmad? Really? Nowadays, one "Ahmad" in your name is enough to get you a full body search even at a not so close distance to an airport. A pre-9/11 name if there ever was one.

He was born in Iraq, and now live in Sweden.
Baitollah Abbaspour from Iran & Essa Obaid from UAE.
