i think darrem's shape is way overrated.  his muscles don't have much "pop," his triceps have high insertions, his lats have a funky shape, his quads lack sweep and his physique just lacks flow in general.

just my opinion.

i agree...he also lacks thickness from the back and has weak hams and calves.

yes DJ is a 1st tier bodybuilder.
1378  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / King Kamali's response to the NY Pro... on: May 21, 2006, 08:53:48 AM
read his post on mm...

It is really amazing to see that once again I am the main topic of conversation on this board even though as everyone knows I said nothing this past year and kept totally to myself. After reviewing my physique from the Ironman and Arnold Classic last year I saw many things that were disturbing and needed immediate attention before everything got out of hand. After 9 years of working with Chad Nicholls I decided that my body had reached a point that I needed to change everything around and start from scratch so I could come back with a totally new physique, and I did just that.

I don’t see where all the insults are coming from. Not once did I say I was going to win this show or beat this guy and that guy etc…. I just wanted to beat the King Kamali of the past and I did just that. Yesterday, I was shredded, period. My conditioning was right on point and even as early as the pump up room I was getting compliments from many fellow competitors and photographers alike on the state of my physique. I was clam and relaxed and confident. I had an amazing first round in the individual maditories round.. By far the loudest and biggest response from the crowd. Even though I did not get the first call out in the symmetry round I was not worried at all because I know I would eventually be pulled in to the first tier for comparisons, and that is exactly what happened.

I believe the second call out was me, Dennis, Henry, Willmore, and some one else. Hummmm, I must have done some thing right to be compared to these top guys. I did very well in this round and as we walked off stage to get ready for the muscularity round I had myself about 4th or 5th. Once again, in the muscularity I received a second call out against Dennis, Henry, and Willmore and a couple others. Dennis was fading and I was getting a tab harder.. so I still had a very positive outlook.

After pre-judging my trainer, wife, and family and friends all basically said the same thing that I was some where from 4th to 6th depending what they do with Willmore. As everyone knows my posing is the strong point and I was confident that I would hold my own and in such a tight race for 4th 5th and 6th. My routine was great and as a treat for the crowd I brought out my friend Batista to add some flavor to the show. People went ape shit when they saw him and I got amazing response for my routine. So, what’s the problem here?

I came back strong and compared very favorably against some of the best bodybuilders in the world. For the first time in many years I did not suffer at all during my pre-contest phase and most importantly, I am healthy.. Which means more to me than anything else. I have not seen the score sheet yet but I was told by an IFBB official last night that it was very, very close between myself and Willmore.. One spot away from being in the top 5 and qualifying for the Olympia.

I consider that a job well done. As far as the Farah and Horvath pushing situation goes, they both were running their mouths and each time they initiated the pushing… I just pushed back. Talking trash is one thing, hell I am the master, but don’t disrespect me and that is what these two men did. It’s not necessary to get into details but what I did justified and I would do it again if need be, enough said.

I would expect some childish behavior from some of you and as always the haters will always bash when giving the opportunity but I am a little disappointed in you Chad for stating on your homepage “disappointing showing from King,…” (which by the way is spelled wrong). I did very well and many, many people had me ahead of Dennis and especially Willmore. Go back and look at the pictures and you will see close it really was and you of all people should know that coming back from the disaster of last year to what I presented last night is a great comeback for me and I will get better… Again I’m disappointed.

My new DVD is amazing and I’m looking forward to the next time I step back on stage. I came close this time and the next time I will come closer… That’s the name of the game.

I want to thank the fans from last night that approached me in the lobby and said what they said. Everyone that came up tome was surprised to see that I was smiling, friendly and in great spirits. I was in amazing shape and the fans acknowledged it… That means a lot to me. Check out my new website and new DVD: Back with A Vengeance.. It’s amazing.

i agree he got robbed...its sad that they placed darrem ahead of him...but phil was on point and very complete...other than a bit more width in his back...but i thought he deserved the win.
1380  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: DJ deserved 2nd on: May 21, 2006, 08:21:17 AM
I was thinking the exact same thing.  In those pic's he actually deserves to win. In person, he should have been at best 4th. The loudest boo's was when Henry was announced 4th, he was clearly better than James.  Sorry jmt, I hate to sound like one of the hater's but his gut was really, really out of control.  The pics you posted had o be the absolute best you could find to "further your case"

i agree that dj has to get better control of his gut...but darrem has holes also...what about his lack of thickness from the back?  poor hams?  weak calves?  why doesnt anyone mention that?  djs overwhelming muscularity has to be taken into good as dave henry looked when he stands next to dj there is no contest...this is still a muscle contest and shouldnt be about who has the tightest could also have been a bit sharper but darrem was not spot on either...heath deserved to win because he was the most complete bodybuilder on stage but dj should have be 2nd.
1381  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: TOP 15? on: May 21, 2006, 06:10:17 AM
was craig richardson in it?

1382  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: DJ deserved 2nd on: May 21, 2006, 05:42:20 AM
If it was all about the muscle size Kovaks would have been MR O long ago

thats crazy...kovaks got one of the worst structures ever to step on stage.
1383  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: DJ deserved 2nd on: May 20, 2006, 07:35:56 PM
agreed dennis needs to get his gut under control and could have been a bit sharper...charles has holes also...weak hams, calves....dennis extreme muscularity overpowers him...this is still a muscle contest and should be about more than who has the tightest waistline.

1385  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: If you were Darrem Charles... on: May 20, 2006, 06:46:14 PM

1390  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: BEST PLACE TO LIVE FOR A BODYBUILDER on: May 20, 2006, 08:54:02 AM
As a bodybuilder, you've gotta have the lifestyle going and that.

Dennis James seemed to have the best for bb in Thailand.

Cheap food
Sufficient Drugs
Cheap living


thailand is a great place to live from what ive heard...i'm good with any warm climate.
1391  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Eric Otero... RIP on: May 19, 2006, 06:25:36 PM
from erics brother...

To Whom it May Concern;

I am not a member of your site, but Eric Otero is my brother. My family and I just returned from San Antonio where he was buried with full military honors at Ft. Sam in San Antonio. I would just like to say that we are all still in disbelieve over this. No words can express how we feel right now.

My brother's obituary and guestbook for his wife can be seen and signed by all that loved him at under the obituary section - you will have to type in Otero in the appropriate spot. I know that I speak for the entire family when I say that it brings comfort to see all of the kind words and memories of my brother.

I don't know where you will post this since I am not a member - but I read the posts about my brother and felt I should respond somehow - I know that not everyone that knew Eric were notified - or they would have been there with the rest of the bodybuilders who were there.

My sincerest thanks for the kind words of support,

1399  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Eric Otero... RIP on: May 15, 2006, 07:38:06 PM
just read this over at the mm board...

Eric Otero - RIP
Just got a call not too long ago confirming Eric Otero, IFBB Pro, was found dead in his bedroom.

That's all I can say for the moment.

Eric turned Pro in 2001 at the NPC Nationals. Eric Otero was one of the most impressive of the show. The judges couldn't get that one wrong. He was a complete package from all angles with almost no room for improvement. Eric was capable in planning his workouts and his diet. At the show that year, he peaked at the right minute on the right day.

Eric was a master at timing competition preparation.

Eric was 32 years old when he turned pro.

Rest in Peace

i agree that he's always on point with his conditioning...very impressive legs...his shoulders do look better in those pics...other than his height i think his problems have been his arms, needs to show more thickness and detail in his back shots, and his abs are too flat...looked good though...just some constructive criticism.
