On page 365 of the new MD, Haney Romrod calls Ronnie Coleman a "mountain of ebony muscle"

I don't think there's anything else to be said.

haha hey dude you are on getbig, i'm sure some drama queens could find who you boss is and tell him everything.
Thank god 240 is busy with the craiggers website right now  Grin

no way. the dude is an entrepreneur.  If 240 was around. he'd compliment the kid, and offer him a website trade for GNC products if the guy works in SW Florida!

BSN is selling a ton of product and hey props to them for seeing the value in a well done commercial vs. BUY ME NOW infomercials.
LIFT

True, but "value" is only achieved if in the long run, when the cost of producing and running that commercial is absorbed by the increase in sales and more than $1 arrives as profit as a result of this action. 

Aside from being the nicest commercial shown during WSM competitions, I don't know if BSN is going to see a return on investment.  It might be fun to brag to VYOtech that their commercial is better. But there's a reason supplement companies don't broadcast on major tv markets- it's not cost-feasible and it's not sustainable.  That marketing budget should be shifted to areas with a better ROI, IMO.

I can understand BSN's excitement about being the first to nail a top-notch commercial.  I just see it as living beyond the means afforded by their assets.

Also, 240->300->sitejaws.  That's evolution. I've only been in business two or three months now.  Still finding myself!

Last time I checked most pros can only peek a couple of times a year.  If this organization with a prize fund of 30 thousand dollars tries to compete against the Olympia with it's prize money, what top 10 bb would not compete in the Olympia? and the Schwarzeneger Classic?

I can easily see those Tier 2 guys who don't usually qualify for the O doing shows like these.

good call.  I also remember reading about MassWithClass' battle with organ failure. He was 37 also.

They took a shotgun to a rifle match.

Marketing 101, you don't mass market unless everyone out there is a prospective buyer.   You're not super walmart, you're super selective.

Far wiser to spend $10 per getbig user on advertising, than 10 cents per Average American. 

I suppose next they'll spend their entire ad budget for the next decade on an artsy super bowl commercial?

rumors are one thing... but these are pics taken by fans that show his head is clearly deformed, and those skull plates seem to be rising.

I think in about ten years, we'll be seeing lots of hands that look like that.

Saw him Saturday, and his elbow was back to normal.   And his tricep wasn't torn.  Told him about the bullshit that is trashed around on this board & he laughed.  He commented that these internet gurus know more about him than he does.

Do you have a pic of this claim?

Here's an interesting thought for the day.

Ronnie Coleman may be calling it quits.  A few points:

Recent pics show Ronnie TORE A TRICEP in December.  Not many athletes can come back inside a year from an injury like this, much less a 40+ year old man on top of the sport.

Ronnie will be what, 43 years old for next year's Olympia?  Dickerson barely won it at age 44 in a far less competitive era.

Ronnie has nothing more to prove in the sport- 8 straight Olympias makes him #1.

Ronnie has used higher levels of GH/IGF/Insulin than any previous Mr O champion.  His head is clearly showing a growing skull plate on the front left side. 

From recent pics, Ronnie has not touched a weight, has not eaten much, and has not used anything more than maintenance HRT for the last 4 months.

Ronnie lost his LOCK upon the Olympia the minute the judges awarded Gustavo the challenge round at the 05 Olympia.  Gustavo is clearly waiting to be next.

Ronnie did an additional DVD, The Road to the Olympia, AFTER the Olympia.  He's never done this.  And he did it in Australia, alienating his American video contracts.

Ron is guest posing and doing signings like never before.   Every week. This WOULD be a good time to keep the retirement secret and earn a lot of money.

Dorian waited until the Arnold Classic following his last Olympia win to announce his retirement. So did Haney. Will Coleman?

The magazines are covering Gustavo like he's the next champ.  Marketing students would say these resources are going in Gustavo's direction for a reason...

Perhaps Ronnie Coleman did the math after tearing a tricep and winning #8 and realized it's time to hang it up and retire a champion.  I know it's popular opinion to say that Ronnie will be king forever, but we all may want to step back and look at the facts and consider we may have seen the man onstage for the last time.

Red Fed has a great personality in interviews and seems like more of a writer than a meathead.   I do, think the Rus Grand Prix was obviously fixed to get him into the O the next year- FLEX wanted that matchup pretty bad.  What else was there, another classic matchup between Jay and Ronnie?


Also I don't think we'll ever see Alex on the O stage again, unless through special invite.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Tera Patrick.

How old is Rockel?

He looks good next to Priest, but you can see Lee has an advantage in terms of muscle maturity.

It's a shame...

Using 2 point, default color border really makes it look like the Clark County Detention Center has no imagination.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How tall is everyone? on: January 28, 2006, 08:04:33 PM
5'10".   Until I can afford growth hormone.  Then I plan to reach 6'4" with the quickness.

While in college I interviewed at GNC for a job once.   I ended up taking another job, but from what they told me, people that sell well there make a pretty good killing. 

Plus you'd get to meet fitness girls all day, which wouldn't suck...
