I still think Poole deserved a least one of the 3 Olympias he competed in. If you see the common decision all these great BB's made was to leave the IFBB. Even though it was the best game in town in so many words. Poole, Sergio, Robbie, Mentzer, Padilla and Nubret. You can only make guys eat shit for so long before they just say the hell with it. Hell even Bill Pearl must have said screw it and hung up his trunks. I am sure Chuck Sipes probably should have done better. I believe Joe Weider was the king maker and if you pissed him off you were done....Look at Kal Szkalak...pissed Joe Weider and was DONE! Took up cycling instead..Bikes that is. He ( Joe Weider) shafted allot of guys as many if not more than he didn't.
In fact didn't Joe steal the likeness of Robbie to use for his own? What about guys like Freddy Ortiz, Warren Fredericks.....oh yea they were Lurie boys silly me. Boyer Coe had to feel cheated too. Anyway if I sound like I am not a Weider fan...... you are very smart because I am not!
