Title: PDI Amatuer Night: = Big Flop
Post by: rocco911 on September 15, 2006, 07:54:55 PM


Had 14 competitors and gave away 8 procard...damn nice for guys who will never make a dime.  It's funny how a few of these guys never broke the top 10 at an NPC competition. 

Oh well, best of luck new pro's!  Oh yea, less than 25 in the crowds; where is the love for PDI? :-*

Where's 240 to defend the show now? For six months all we heard from 240 was rants about how the PDI was da bomb. You couldn't visit this place without tripping over a "PDI Rulez" thread started by 240.

Now, the PDI qualifier finally arrives and he's got nada to say? Is he so excited he can't settle his little trembling fingers to type? Or is the wind simply blowing in another direction today? Maybe the gravy train he was so sure would stop at his station during the summer is looking more like a shitmobile to him? 

Monster flip flop. Monster integrity. Monster sticking by your team. And yes, it was your team. When you put "PDI" in your avatar quote line, it's your team.

I doubt DeMilia was paying 240 or Bust any money at all. He probably got the website for free, in return for perhaps vague future promises. We just don't know.

What I'd like to know is what kind of promises, or whatever you want to call it, that made several people, not only 240 or Bust, buy the concept and essentially work or in other ways submit to DeMilia with little or nothing in return.

What we know is that 240 or Bust isn't calling Wayne DeMilia "DeMilianaire" anymore. If it is because 240 called a bluff, is something that perhaps will be known one day.

Anyways, I doubt DeMilia ever paid 240 or Bust. If anything, the 9-11 conspiracy "interest" of 240 perhaps have made him a hard customer to fool.

Just got back from the Night of Champions prejudging rounds, was really good, very professional, 500-900 in the crowd.
Lee, Freys and Volton(?) and Sami, looked amazing.  Great bunch of physiques on stage.

Every one was great except Shawn Allen, guy coudn't stand still, kept pacing back and forthe taking away focus from the athlete on the dias. Insisted on acting  like a fool and trying to get attention from fans in audience. WHen he came out for the second round he was shacking a lot, and oil wasn't evenly spread. Didn't look as good as he thinks. Also insisted on posing after lights went down and the other competitors left the stage.

The 911 conspiracy stuff, well, of course I feel there should be a new investigation.  There are just too many holes in the official story, (and too much new evidence and info), for any reasonable person to deny the need for a second investigation.

And my policy regarding pre-pay for work has and always will be this way.  And to keep work steady and constant, I just about never dip below the flat rate pricetag.  I mean, if jenn Searles wanted to invite me to a slumber party, then maybe I could knock off 5%.

Even with the comped tickets, considering the guys who reneged on the contracts, and the lack of IFBB guys not named priest...
500 to 900 for prejudging is pretty good.  Anyone else in attendance have tighter numbers?

How did Priest and Sami look?  Who is begging for 3rd? How's Rhino looking?


Title: Re: PDI = BIG FLOP
Post by: CQ on September 16, 2006, 05:23:24 PM
Did they seriously only have 14? And gave away 8 pro cards at that?

If so, it is a very good thing they cancelled the other proqualifierd they were scheduled to have in Vegas and Orlando...if they had 3 amateur shows how many would they have had at each? 3 people? ::)

Post by: legbreaker on September 16, 2006, 05:30:21 PM
That's a very good number.  Bodybuilders...if you aint in the top 10-15 at the olympia then go to the PDI.  There WILL be more contest and within 2 years I do believe it will be a good organization.

I hope there is some pics of the crowd.  Unlike other shows where we have to take Chic or Seans word for how many people were actually there.  It appears that the IFBB may be in for a run for its money if this show goes good.

Pics of the crowd mean nothing, Keith...it's already been shown that at LEAST 5000 tickets were given away for free...and that was just to one guy. As many as 1,000 seats could be comps....

hope the guys get paid...

Pics of the crowd could mean that more than 100 ppl showed up ;)

It's the truth...like the 100 people that were in attendance...and the 61 that attended last night.

Bob, here's a hypothetical.  Let's say I run a BBing federation and I give away every ticket for free.  I can pay for the prize $ and auditorium from sponsor money, other endeavors, or just form my Aunt Betsy's inheritance money.  The shows are packed, the sponsors get lots of views, the athletes are paid, and everyone has a good time.

Is this BBing show a failure, Bob?

5000 tickets given away.  the hall only holds 1500.  COme on you can do better bullshit than that.  Plus like I said who cares how many comps were given out.  At least they showed up.  People don't even show up to the Olympia when comps are given to them.  Now that is sad

Bob is far from a businessman and would not know the answer to this.  plus, thephone line is busy to Manions so he has to wait to get an answer.

1000 comps or not, that's how you creat interest.  I'm a great trainer and I'll gladly give someone that doesn't know me a comp session, but after that they're gonna have to pay....since I'm good they always do.  The same thing could be said for PDI.  No doubt about it, today the show went off and that means a success....the fact that they had some good and very good physiques means more.  no matter what interest HAS been created.  A lot more IFBB guys will be asking a lot of questions and they should be.  If they didn't then they could NOT be considered competitors.  Guys want to compete!!!!  

In WWE wrestling the agents always say that the fan turn over is about 5 years, new ones in old ones out and some stick around.  Guaranteed that some of the new ones come from the many many comp tix given out around the world.  Create NEW business for your self.

But how come there were comps given when it was sold out according to you? Months ago it was already almost sold out.

i'm going to watch this thing recommended by 240 with an open mind.

don't watch news much anyway (too much b.s. and negativity), so this will be pretty fresh.

any time i get told i'm committing a crime (moral/law) for wanting information i seek it more. it is either a sin or treason to doubt and always has been. funny that. why did god gives us brains then? so we wouldn't use them.  ::) makes sense.

my parents grew up catholics in ireland and weren't even allowed to read the bible back then (50's - 60's). they had to just listen to the priest! what a nice set up, believe everything the pedophile tells you and give us your money! how much money and assets have the catholic church got again?  :o

The most telling fact is that the PDI's inaugural show took place last night after months of buildup.........and you wouldn't even know it from the looks of this board.

No results.

No "expert" assesments.

No debating over placements.

A total non-event. It's like it didn't even happen.


Title: Re: PDI Amatuer Night: = Big Flop
Post by: 240 is Back on September 17, 2006, 08:38:29 AM
For its first amateur show, with minimal hype and a lot of ppl unsure, it seemed to be an okay event.  The night show - we gotta see some pics.  Some ppl have said the place was near packed.  Hopefully pics will confirm or deny.


And as requested by PM - here is the $2.3 trillion that the Pentagon / DoD announced missing on Sept 10, 2001. 

On Sept. 10, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war. Not on foreign terrorists, "the adversary's closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy," he said.
He said money wasted by the military poses a serious threat.
"In fact, it could be said it's a matter of life and death," he said.
Rumsfeld promised change but the next day Sept. 11-- the world changed and in the rush to fund the war on terrorism, the war on waste seems to have been forgotten.
Just last week President Bush announced, "my 2003 budget calls for more than $48 billion in new defense spending."
More money for the Pentagon, CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales reports, while its own auditors admit the military cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends.

According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions, Rumsfeld admitted.

http://benfrank.net/patriots/news/national/pentagon_missing_trillions
Confiemed on pentagon's own page: http://www.defenselink.mil/speeches/2001/s20010910-secdef.html
2.3 trillion would come in handy if you were gonna do something really bad and needed to hide it.  and sept 10 is a good day to announce something like that, as nobody cared the next morning.

I'm a dumb bitch, sure.   Doesn't change the fact that 911 = inside job.
I've spent a lot of time researching this and I can seriously show you some big holes in the official story
Do your research, and come see us on the general board sometime ;)

Here's a teaser - lots of big booms in the basement, 14 and 17 seconds before the planes ever hit!



this says it all about you. where has your research been conducted?  were you actually there at ground zero to hear the "big booms"?


Title: Re: PDI Amatuer Night: = Big Flop
Post by: shutupandtrain88 on September 17, 2006, 09:29:28 AM
stick to making your websites and leave the internet conspiracy crap off here, between the amount of posts and "research" ie reading someone elses cooked up nonsense, your "clients" are getting shortchanged.  were the planes real?  were there real hijackers in them?  clinton couldn't hide his oval office sexcapades, do you truly believe that with all the personell involved in a massive operation 9/11 would have been, that NONE would have come forward by now, no documents, no person? nothing but internet kooks and theories?  what about the videos of the hijackers and now with bin laden?

then again why am I arguing with a person who created a website to glamorize a killer?  with free the killer as the url?  Like I said everyone knows the reason you are what you are.  you'll keep your fan club, and keep on posting you'll be hitting 100,000 posts in no time.

come on down to the general board. politics do belong there (i just posted here cause someone else brought it up first!) we have some nice heated discussions :)  And you might be surprised by the amount of evidence which counters the official story.  We're living history. Be happy and enjoy it :)

I talked to several people on mayhem who were there and they all said the night show was excellent.  Well ran and the venue was nearly full at night.  The top guys looked very good.  Looking forward to more pics.


I think some of you guys are hearing about the qualifier which was not a well attended event.  Many were given pro cards because the PDI needs to build their ranks.  In the following qualifiers, there will be less cards given out.  Unfortunately, there were not a lot of competitors for the qualifier...but it was not well publicized and many were waiting to see if the pro show would occur.  We'll see if it builds from here.
