As someone who was at the show and witnessed the entire event I can only express my admiration and gratitude for how professionally and respectfully Gary was treated.
Hopefully those of you who have chosen to mock his death will receive the same respect when your time comes.

R.I.P Gary.

Many promoters of bodybuilding contests don't consider the main draw which is the open men's contest. What we used to do was have the open men first on at the prejudging and then last at the main show. This way they didn't have to wait around all day and could have the afternoon off to relax before the evening show. That is fine if you don't have that many watching the show. The worst case of this was the old AAU Mr America contests that had the show after the weightlifting was over. At one contest the bodybuilding show was on after midnight! Something wrong there.

If the promoters use the amateur contests to draw an audience then perhaps the open show can be held when there is the biggest audience. When family and friends come to see a contest many are disappointed their hero didn't win and leave the show afterwards. Thus, the crowd dwindles in the evening. Promoters try to include too many events and divisions and the whole thing takes way too much time and the crowd gets bored and disappears. Obviously they have to cater to everyone and the pros get on last. I know I didn't want to watch all those fitness routines and had to wait for the pros to finally appear on the webcast.


I feel Vince brings up some good points here.
I think these Expo things with Powerlifting, Bikini girls etc are just a pain in the arse really. 
It makes the day go on for fucking ever.

I run my own show back here in Aust & I make sure it's short & sweet.  About 5hrs is the maximum for me.  Even this could be considered too long.

Take other 'normal' sports for instance.  Would you go & watch a football match, hockey game or basketball game if it meant that you would be there for 10-12hrs?  I doubt it.  Not many people can sustain interest in something for that amount of time.  So what makes BBing promoters think that people can sustain interest in a BBing show for that long?  Especially considering at a Pro level, you are pretty much seeing the same competitors all the time.  Their placings rarely change, so what we are doing in reality is just going along to watch an 'exhibition' of BBers.  The competition is virtually non-existent.

Where's the excitement in that.  It's just as easy to watch the DVD or check out the photos.

Another point I would like to ad is the fact that all the Pro shows are held in the US, except for Tony Doherty's Aussie Pro show.  Why aren't there Pro shows in Europe any more?  The European crowds would kill to see the worlds best BBers in action.  They are noisy & passionate, as are the Aussie fans.  The Pros are always well received down here, but I feel in America, the crowds are a bit spoiled & tend to take Pro shows a bit for granted, knowing full well that there is a show not too far away from them.

No one is really going to travel overseas to watch a Pro show, bar maybe the Arnold or the Olympia.

Another thing I would like to bring up is presentation.  Without sounding too harsh, most Pro BBers posing routines are as boring as bat-shit, with the exception of one or two, such as Melvin, Darrem etc.  For professional athletes, I expect to see a bit more 'bang-for-my-buck'.  They just lumber around the stage with their hand cupped to one ear, expecting us to praise them just for walking out on the stage.  The routines of yester-year leave todays routines for dead.  This is one area of Pro BBing that has gone backwards in a big way. 

What was once one of the most exciting part of a Pro contest is now just a drag.
These guys are getting paid to do this, surely they can put a bit more effort into their presentation.  I see much more entertaining & creative routines at local 'natural' BBing shows back here in Aust.

Just my thoughts.

Grow up, the judges or feds would not have this kind of power if the BB's had unified. The egocentrical and stupid nature of most pro BB's prohibits them from ever really unifying and using collective pressure.

Again, what about growing the fuck up and taking responsibility for the situation, instead of playing the "blame-game"? Roll Eyes They are pushed around because they allow themselves to be pushed around..

What a load of crap.  Judges & federations have all the power.  How they place the bodybuilders in contests is how BBers determine what they need to do to win. 
If the Mass Monsters are the ones winning comps, then what does that tell you?  Get massive!

In the 70s & 80s, symmetry was the name of the game.  Zane, Bannout, Haney were all renown for their symmetrical physiques. 
Freaks like Platz, Fox & Phil Hill were continually overlooked for the more aesthetically pleasing physiques. 

Better judging & better direction from federations is needed.  How bbers like Flex Wheeler never won a Mr Olympia is beyond me? 
He did the right thing.  Presented a beautifully balanced physique & got shafted.

Judges & federations are not to blame................... ......yeah right.

Bring back the dignity and repect to the most reviled and despised pageant on the planet!


You are such a fucking tool!

It's not the bodybuilders fault that they are looking the way they do these days.  Judges are to blame.
BBers are only doing what they need to do to win contests.

Judges are marking down the balanced & symmetrical physiques in favour of the 1% bodyfat Mass Monsters.
So what's a competitor supposed to do?

Why not take your beef up with judges & the federations that are are rewarding these type of physiques, rather than getting stuck into the BBers? 
Negative pricks like you are pathetic.

So when are you going to answer a simple question................ ...........What have you ever done for the sport of BBing?
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Luke Wood - fighters spirit or career in tatters? on: June 05, 2007, 02:17:20 PM
Yes, i am on a crusade! 

Pro Bodybuilding has arrived at an ugly-juncture in its short and sordid history.  I have undertaken an initiative which is unpopular to the hardcore-meatheads, those who worship the modern day Mass Monsters.

However, i believe it is important that i continue my initiative!  I will unashamedly call out the freakazoids, like the Luke Woods.  It is time they were held accountable for promoting the hideous, vile, bloated and drug-fuelled physiques that is now the norm, in this repugnant industry.

Bodybuilding is in crisis. 
I will not be bullied, i will not recoil. 



What a load of shit.  So Luke's the only 'Freakazoid' is he?  I hardly think so. 
If you were serious about your crusade you would start at the top; Cutler, Coleman & the king of 'Freakazoid', Ruhl!

Anyway, what have you ever done for BBing.  Answer the question mate.
Earn our respect, tell us something that you have done that we can aspire to.
No one is bullying you, we just want some answers.

C'mon mate, stop avoiding the question................ ......what have you done for BBing?

Hahahaha.  I could not have said it any better myself!  You are by your own admission, 'a plagiarist'.

You are an infringement on bodybuilding publications everywhere! Even Australia's tiny pool of Meatheads will see through the cribbing and piracy!

Anyway, back to the thread;  Yes Luke, it is evident that you have an inability to fight your own wars! Insulin and HgH are not your only allies!  Hahahahaha.
Mate, is this the best you can do?
You're pathetic. C'mon, what have you ever done for BBing?
Answer the question soft-cock.

And while your at it, explain that photo of Luke in the background.

Rocco is a fascinating man.  He doesn't get up to much these days.  He still attends shows down here in Melb, but makes a living these days by selling CDs on ebay of all things.  He sells really rare stuff like musicals & hard to find stuff.  I bought a CD of "The Natural" off him last time I visited.  I'd looked for it since 1986!  And there it was, in his collection.

It's the biggest collection in Australia I believe.  I will be doing a big story on Rocco soon.

Type his name into ebay & you will find him.

I FOUND HIM

http://hankwood.com/wst_page2.html

Here is a snippet from our friend Hanks site

About Me:

      Born in Kansas, raised in Missouri, now I spend my time annoying the good people of central Montana.  This site became a necessity, for as much as I like to make fun of everyone and everything, I occasionally have to sleep and do other things.  Yes, I do have skills other than bashing people, and no, my mother did not raise me to be this way.  My favorite food is cheese, and I almost always wear black socks.

     Besides my usual bad habits of golf, four wheeling, wacking off to goat porn, snowboarding and fishing, I've been playing guitar in the band Premonition Live.  Some day when I'm good enough, maybe they will let me turn my amp on.

-------------------------

You sad bag of shit Hank, Premonition what a gay name
 


Fucking hilarious!
No wonder you're my No1 writer.

Love ya work mate..................to o funny. Grin

He contributes nothing.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Luke Wood - fighters spirit or career in tatters? on: June 04, 2007, 10:39:23 PM
Glad to see we've got you rattled Hank. Grin

Beef is an outstanding publication & as you would well know from a previous thread, I have already said that I love the way they do their mag, no question about it.  You can say what you like about the two magazines being the same, they're not.  Not that you would know, you haven't seen mine.

I will however concede that I have blatantly ripped-off a magazine.  That magazine is a great old Aussie magazine call Muscle Australia.  It was produced by my very good friend, Rocco Oppedisano & to this day, is the best Aussie BBing magazine ever produced.  (This was out in the late 70s, so by your reasoning, Beef magazine ripped-off Rocco's idea)

Rocco has helped me through every step of the way & has acted as an adviser/mentor.  He was absolutely thrilled when I rocked up to his door with a few copies.  Like everyone else, he feels it is the best Aussie BBing magazine that he has ever seen.  No light compliment coming from him, he's been around the sport for over 40yrs.

As much as I have gained my inspiration from Muscle Australia & even Beef, Hardcore Aussie Muscle looks nothing like either them.  Once again, you wouldn't know.  In fact, there is fuck all that you really know at all.  What have you ever done to contribute to BBing?  Nothing.  Just another pathetic hater, that's your only claim to fame.  I love losers like you.  No matter how shit I feel or how shit I look, I always know that I've got your measure, even on your best day.

I love the way you pump me & Tony up, yet as soon as we back up our Aussie mate, (like all decent Aussies do), you spit the dummy & get stuck into us.  I can promise you that I have no 'vested' interest in Luke.  He doesn't feature in my first issue or any of the up & coming ones for that matter.  Like everyone else, we will get around to Luke next time he competes.  Until then, he can read about all of our other great champions until his turn comes up.

Luke doesn't need me blowing smoke up his arse to contribute to the magazine.  The magazine is about all Aussie BBers & all federations, not just Luke.  It just so happens that he is our best local BBer, so therefore it makes sense that most Aussie BBers would like to read about him.  We will cover him when ever we get the chance, but the magazine will survive without Luke & Luke has survived without the magazine, so there is no 'vested' interest.

You haven't made one valid point.  This is like shooting fish in a barrel, you are in way over your head you fucking dropkick.
Keep going try-hard.  With so many posts, you might fluke it & get your facts right in one of them.

I love the fact that I've got my own magazine up & running & you are jealous because of it.  Once again, someone has had the balls to do something that you could never do yourself.  C'mon Hank, do something for yourself, prove yourself to us.  Some old contest photos perhaps, anything at all that you have done to contribute to BBing.    Make us jealous of you.  Shut us up, I dare you.

Hey Outlaw did you get my sub $$ for the mag? When will the first edition be out?
Did you sign up on-line?  If so, you should've received your first copy by now.
Of course, it would help if I knew who you were.   Smiley


As for Luke replying to Hank's posts, yes, it certainly fuels Hank's fire.  The funny part is, I think we all get more upset about it than Luke does.  He seems to be having fun just stringing this knobhead along.  Luke, for the sake of your good buddies, Messiah & Outlaw, can you please stop replying to Hank's posts.  He might not be upsetting you, but he's giving all of us the shits!   Grin

13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Luke Wood - fighters spirit or career in tatters? on: June 04, 2007, 02:31:17 PM
Okay, enough is enough.  Seriously Hank, you're a fucking disgrace!
The way you continually put Luke down is just pathetic. 
It's quite obvious from your posts that you either hate his guts or you are insanely jealous of him.

Whatever the reason, fucking pull-up!
There are only a hand full of Aussies on this board, so it would be nice if we could at least stick together & support each other, rather than bag the shit out of someone because you hate him, you're jealous of him, you hate Milos or you hate Luke's physique, whatever.

WHO GIVES A FUCK!!!........................ ....(Except you)

The guy's out there having a go, what have you ever done?  FUCK ALL!
Hater's like you are pathetic.
The way you talk about your fellow Aussie is un-Australian & embarrassing.

You have no integrity, all your posts are just pure shit!
I'm surprised the Mods let you stay on.

Give it a rest you fucking loser!

One time they said that the television will kill the radio.
Then they said that the video tape machine will kill the movie industry.
Then they said that the CD and tape machines will kill the music industry.
Then they said that the internet sites will kill the retail stores.
People told me that multi channels and video games will kill the books that people read.
None of this happened.

Things adapt. Magazines have a unique place, and I still subscribe to a number of magazines, both bodybuilding and non-bodybuilding related. Sometimes you just want to read it on your own level, your own time, your own place.

While magazines cannot give you up to the date and current info, they can give you a retrospect, quality pics, and a storyline that is cool to read, and which I look forward to each month.


Now, as for bodybuilders running the magazines, if they can, it is great.  But like any business, you don't need to be a member of that sport to run a successful magazine, whether it be football, basketball, or anything. But you do need to be knowledgable and understand whatever you are doing.
 

Well said mate.

There is definitely a place for magazines.  Computers are inconvenient.  With the exception of laptops, you can't just pick them up & take them anywhere.  And even laptops are a pain.  They run low on battery, you can't keep them out of your sight in case some bastard pinches them, you have to be careful not to drop them or spill shit on them.

Magazines are cool.  You can fold 'em up & take 'em anywhere.  If you misplace it, spill something on it or whatever, you just buy a new one.
They are cheap, convenient & disposable.  They won't die.

The Internet is obviously the way to go for up-to-date info, but you can't stick a computer on your fridge door or gym wall for motivation.
Rip a page out of a magazine, pin it on you fridge for motivation.  Awesome!

Everything has it's place.  Magazines have theirs.

As for BBers writing their own magazine, well, as Monsta said, Australia has it's very own magazine that is run by Aussie BBers, for Aussie BBers.
I am the proud publisher/editor.  Our first issue was released on 1st June and the response is far & above anything that I had expected.

We have no qualified people involved with the magazine, just local BBers.  Everyone tells me it's the best magazine that they have ever seen.  BBers know what BBers want.  No bullshit 'How to grow big arms in 10 workouts' kinda crap.  Contest reports & profiles are the mainstay of our magazine.  We just want to see photos of the comps & reports on how they went.  A couple of profiles on local champions & we are happy.

It's easily the best looking & most informative Aussie magazine on the market.
You guys should do something similar.  There is too much crap in BBing magazines these days.

Cheers.

Craig.

u should look to mother england for inspriation for your mag,, weve had the beef running here for yrs and its the only mag the competative lads bother with, profiles on up and cumming bb's, contest results etc etc
Funny you should say that.
Beef was definitely an ispiration for me.  I would rate it as the best bodybuilding magazine in the world, as far as supporting local contests go.  It's my favorite magazine.  The self depreciating & dry sense of humour of their writers is awesome.

Both our magazines have a "common" link, photographer Gary Phillips.  This will allow us to swap photos & information.  The idea being that if any Poms come over here & compete, we can send some photos & text to Beef & vica-versa.  We also having a great relationship with Kris at Kaged Muscle. Once again, we will be able to share & swap information.

Pretty cool huh?  Three independant magazines working together.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Australian bodybuilding ... is there a future?? on: May 15, 2007, 10:10:56 PM
Fair enough.

Tony would be a great addition to the magazine.  I have watched a lot his 'muscle tv' series and found that to be very enjoyable viewing.

Will you be having a section on 'pharmaceuticals' ?  Or will you be staying from this controversial subject while the mag is in its infancy?
Nup.  Nothing on the juice.  By the time it goes to print, it'd be secondhand news.
The internet is the place to keep up with that sort of information.

Just Contest reports & Profiles basically, with a few odd bits & pieces in-between.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Australian bodybuilding ... is there a future?? on: May 15, 2007, 09:27:24 PM
Monsta is very entertaining and knowledgable.  i look forward to his contributions.

Outlaw, do you have any other writers lined up?  Tony Doherty would be  of great value!

Any plans to distribute the magazine internationally?  I think our close Asian neighbours would be very interested in a mag of this nature.  They have a very strong bodybuilding network.


Tony's offered to write about a few of his funny experiences in BBing which would be great.  As far as the International scene goes, New Zealand is as far ahead as we are looking, but that's probably a good 12mths away in reality.  We're in no rush.  One step at a time.

Your right monsta.  i was over there checking out the website.  It is a team effort and looking very professional.

Will you be contributing to the magazine?  You have a lot of experiene in the gym, with diets and shows.  It would be good to have you on board!
Monsta has written a great piece for our first issue.  It's our very first article.

Here it is in case you missed it.
There is a bit of work to do, but at least you get a rough idea of what the magazine is all about.

Outlaw, you evidently know what you want from this magazine.  You are staying true to your core beliefs about bodybuilding and that is commendable.

Availability: Will your magazine be available for sale in gyms?  Supplements sell very well at the big commercial gyms and i think there is a market for a high quality magazine like yours. 

Have you approached Doherty's,  Five Star,  Bell St. Fitness and the YMCA's to act as  distribution outlets for your mag???
Yep.  Already done.  Quite a few gyms & supplement shops want to sell it, including both Tony's.
It's available via subscription & it will be in around 2,000 newsagents all around Australia.

How's that?
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Australian bodybuilding ... is there a future?? on: May 15, 2007, 02:52:06 AM
Outlaw, you are not compromising the values of a hard-core bodybuilding magazine by including women in swimsuits.

I applaud you for remaining true to the cause!  However, having a section devoted to beautiful women will enhance, not detract from the magazine (only my opinion).

I believe that advertisers would be more responsive to a magazine of this kind, if  'famale content' was included.

To tell you the truth, hard-core-bodybuilding-fans generally really enjoy looking at  gorgeous women in bikinis (as well as heavily muscled men).

Just a thought.  Not hating, just offering an idea!
Thanks for the feedback, a few others share your concerns.
I'm not changing a thing.  I believe we can succeed without bimbos.  They don't deserved to be covered by a BBing publication.
There are plenty of other opportunities for them.

BBers don't have a special section in other magazines, so why should we have bimbos in our's?
I'm not after cheap votes or public approval.  I don't want to do what everyone else does.

I'll just give it a try this way first, and see what happens.
There are quite a few good looking Figure, Fitness & Physique girls over here.
We'll use them instead.

I hope you are going to buy one?

[Good for Craig if he can pull a rabbit out of the hat. If his magazine has great photos and sticks to featuring all the Aussie bodybuilders, etc.,  it should be successful. I hope he doesn't follow the US lead by having mostly advertisements. [/color]

We have an ad-to-content ratio of 4-1.  For every 4 pages of content, there is one ad.
I have shitloads of content, I just need more advertisers.  I have enough, but if I can get more, I can print more content.

The photos are awesome, don't worry about that.  I have also got plenty of old photos from the 60's & 70's.
Robert Nailon & Rocco have been very generous & supportive.

You won't be disappointed, unless you want to see Bikini girls.  There are none.  BBers only.
No male models, no bimbos.  They are well & truly catered for in other publications.

We are a true & honest BBing magazine.  We won't be trying to win over the general public with gimmick type articles.
I look forward to your response once you have read it.

We produce some great natural bodybuilders down under.  However, the problem is, as soon as they start winning a few shows they disappear off the radar.

Australia has never produced a Mr Olympia or an Arnold champion ( the only two tournaments that matter).

What is going wrong down-under? 

Are Aussies just more interested in the beach and babes, and less concerned about building a freaky physique?

I'm not going to get involved in all the racial BS on this thread, but as far as the reason that us Aussies are not doing so well in Pro BBing, well, I think that was answered somewhere else on this thread.  We are a small population, so therefore the odds are against us producing Mr Olympia's every year.  For the amount of population that we have, I think we have done quite well, as per the list of champion Aussie BBers posted on this thread.

Anyway, at that level, politics is a big part of how successful you will become.  I don't believe that there will ever be another Mr Olympia that doesn't end up moving to the US.  Dorian will be known as the last "foreigner" to win a Mr Olympia.  The Olympia has really become a boring show.  Three winners in around 20yrs.  Wow, how exciting.  Added to that is the fact that it is always held in the US.  It was a much better show when it traveled around the world.  As a contest, it's shit IMO.

As far as the state of BBing in Aust is, well, to be honest, I reckon it's a bit of a mess.  Too many shows, too many classes, not enough competitors.  Our comps over here are rewarding mediocrity, It's terrible.  I went to a show on Saturday that had 50 competitors.  It had 23 classes.  Every second person won.  WTF?  It was ridiculous.  There are no real contests here anymore, just line-ups of 2-3 if you are lucky, quite often just one competitor per class.

Our BBers are not made to work hard enough IMO.  They just walk up & win.  We have 6 BBing federations here.  Each one has National titles, each one has weight/height classes, so in theory, you can have around 40 people a year running around saying they are Mr Aust, & that's just the blokes!  The women have physique, figure, fitness & now this fucking wanky Sportsmodel/Glamour/Bikini classes.  What a fucking nightmare they are!

We have you bloody Yanks to thank for those bullshit classes!  Thanks very fucking much!  Do you guys really watch that shit?  What on earth has it got to do with BBing?

Anyway, another reason that we are treading water over here is that we have no publicity or promotion for our BBers, as in a decent magazine.  All we read is what you guys are doing.  No offense, but who gives a fuck?  We want to know what's going on in our own Country, not yours.  Our BBing publications over here are a joke!  I will name them:  Ironman, MuscleMag, Muscle & Fitness & Flex.  They put in around 4 pages of Aussie content if we are lucky.  It's a bloody disgrace.

Well, I'm doing something about it.  Today I take the very first issue of Hardcore Aussie Muscle to the printers.  This is a brand new Aussie BBing magazine.  And guess what!  It's only got comps & profiles on Aussie BBers.  It's made here in Melb & will hopefully become the voice of Australian BBing.  If you win a comp, we'll be there to report on it.  It's like nothing that you have ever seen before!  I'm gonna go out on a limb & say that it's the best looking magazine that you have ever seen, better than the ones you have in the US!

Our website is up & running, although we have yet to get the forum & the gallery operating, but at least you can have a look at what the magazine is all about.  It would be remiss of me not to mention Rocco Oppedisanno's "Muscle Australia" magazine.  It was awesome & to this day is the only decent Aussie magazine to be published.  It finished back in the 80's, that's how long it's been since we had anything decent to read over here!

It's taken me 20yrs to get around to it, but here it is.  I hope you enjoy it.
