do you ever see lee priest in oz?

I have seen him at a couple of expos etc. He is always polite and I am the same to him. No hard feelings from me.
3  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Bob Chick - Good emcee or should he retire? on: August 07, 2014, 04:35:51 AM
I have also been an MC for the last 20+ years. It is great fun and a job where you either have it or you don't. Bob is the best in the game and I look forward to working with him in the future. I rate him so highly that I will bring him to Australia next year to MC the Arnold. As much as I would love to do it myself, I will need someone else to take the reigns. Bob is the only person in the industry I would consider. Like Ron says, he knows the game, his timing is great and I like his sense of humor. Much respect.

Good going mate.
Tony,  trying to organise accomodation for the Arnold,
It's incredibly hard. Just wanted to let you know.


I have about 6 hotels that will be listed on our site later this week. All available with good rates. Hotels for athletes and fans.

is it a Australian production?

An Australian guy, actually an English guy that has lived here for the last 10 years, Gay Phillips is producing it. Gary is best known for shooting the best ever Flex Wheeler pic ever.

I have done most of the interviews and we have got everyone giving their thoughts on Flex. His old fight coaches, Ronnie, Kevin, Dorian, Shawn, Chris and many, many more. I gpot Flex talking about all the stuff that has never been accurately discussed.

Honestly, will be one of the best bodybuilding docos DVDs ever.

Whats up with that Flex Wheeler DVD Tony?

thx

Hey frank, it is still in production.  I have seen the trailer and quite a few interviews. It will be incredible.

Tony, one thing puzzles me. You are a successful gym owner and entrepreneur. Why on earth would you come online and try to humiliate someone in the industry?
The way you treat others reflects on who you are. That some Getbiggers agree with you is surely not sufficient justification for continuing what you do.

I never hated Arnold. I didn't like being placed last by him and Paul Graham. I honestly feel that if someone of Arnold's standing in bodybuilding judges unfairly he
should never be allowed to have anything to do with judging or promoting contests again. It doesn't matter what I think because the IFBB is a closed club that
rewards those who play by their rules. That has always been the way they operate. No one will take any notice of what Arnold did except me.

I will remember what Tony has been posting on Getbig. I doubt if Arnold could be that nasty.


The problem with you Vince, is that you can give it but can't take it.
You are always attacking someone and then dirty up like a little kid when you get it back.

Seriously dude, you are still going on about a placing in a show 30 years ago and have let it control your mind. This is actually pathetic and I guess sad.
Now you spend your days arguing on a board where no one likes you. You should be enjoying your golden years, not living with regret and grudges.

The way I see it, you are fair game and deserve all the shit you get. You troll threads, attack people, judge others, hate on anyone successful or not.
 
I'm not nasty, I just talk straight and stick up for family,friends and business partners.

Truth be told, Vince never liked Arnold.

I'd love to hear what Arnold has to say about Vince.

"1"

Nothing - Boom!

No, Tony should slowly push him out the door and remake that gif

I think I could add to it.  Grin
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold Australian TV commercial ........... on: August 04, 2014, 01:54:48 PM
Nice one, Tony. Attack the messenger. Arnold now sucks as an actor.

All the money in the world can't give a person what he hasn't got.


Vince, that wasn't an attack, that was just me pointing out the obvious.

Your comment here defies logic. Are you suggesting that Arnold is unhappy, or perhaps wishing he had less money and a the life of a simpleton like you. Arnold is doing just fine, happy as hell and making 5 films this year.

With my show in 2015 and South Africa in 2016, that's 5 Arnold Classic's a year. He loves what he does and makes serious money doing it.

Meanwhile, after doing the math, I realised he may have made more from that one TV commercial than you made in your whole life.

Now you want to talk seriously about embarrassment, go stand in front of a mirror and have a good hard look at yourself and what you have become. I bet you don't last five minutes looking at your pathetic self before a little tear rolls down that fat little red face.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold Australian TV commercial ........... on: August 04, 2014, 02:24:29 AM
It was embarrassing to watch.

You are embarrassing to watch Vince. I doubt that Arnold would remember you but if he did, then he would then be embarrassed.

Just think about it you bitter old fart. You have nothing to offer but negativity.

PS. Arnold got paid more for that ad than you have earned in the last 20-25 years.

Hey Tony, how about BJ Johns. I remember he died very early. Did you know him? How about Marc Rainbow?

BJ Johns was a ripper. He lived at above my shop for a while and worked out of my gym in the early days. He was the most likeable guy ever. Wicked sense of humor and really knew haw to have a laugh.

I was so sad when he died. They had moved to Sydney. He had a really nice fiance, Ange and I just remember her being devastated.

Mark Rainbow was another comedian. He used to post here at getbig. He did my proshow one year and was the life of the party. I saw him in New Zealand this year and he was doing OK.

They were both originally from New Zealand.

I believe Shane's wife is Diane Jardim and she won a Ms World title in the 90's

They had a rottweiler they named after Nasser  Smiley

Correct, I think they had a daughter. have not seen them in years.
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold Australian TV commercial ........... on: August 03, 2014, 04:29:03 PM
It's a pretty good ad really. Great for us with Arnold Classic Australia coming up. Boom!

NCFOM


I agree, along with Max Cody in Cape Fear.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: When did you guys FIRST start coming to GETBIG? on: June 30, 2014, 10:35:04 PM
Nov. 98


Me about the same time. Is that when it was a board on American bodybuilding?
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ronnie Coleman: Tales of the Unexpected by Peter McGough on: June 29, 2014, 10:26:39 PM
Here is an interview I did with Ronnie earlier this year.

I honestly believe him when he says that he would have liked it to last forever. He said it was like a car, he drove iot till the wheels fell off.  I have thoroughly enjoyed interviewing him since before he won that first Olympia.

I trained the special operations cop that arrested his after he came out of the burning building. They probably would have shot him but there was a news chopper above and he was nude from memory. Definitely him, I remember my mate saying they dragged across the scrub by his feet. In the original arrest pictures you could see the marks on his face from being dragged across the ground.

I like conspiracy theories as much as anyone but this one is bullshit.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dennis Newman today..... on: June 25, 2014, 01:51:12 AM
He had it all. Back in the day everyone rated him and he could have been one of the best ever.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Looking Back - Blasts from the past on: June 20, 2014, 07:29:26 PM
Shane was a good guy, he worked for me for a while and always showed up on time. He was good company, had quite a following and was a real guru to those that he trained. He went in a pro qualifier one year and lost to Mark Lampard. It could have gone either way on the day. I remember he took it badly and don't think competed again. He would have won it the next year and probably had the mind set to be a good pro. He relocated to Thailand with his wife who was a very good figure competitor, I think they had a daughter. Last I heard he had taken up motorcycle racing and was still living overseas.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC's BRIAN JOHNSON Says Band Is 'Very Likely' To Tour This Year on: June 20, 2014, 05:37:15 AM
I saw them play in Melbourne about 2 years ago. Brian had the energy levels of a 20 year old. Unbelievable.

I also say them play in 1979 when they were a relatively unkown Aussie rockband.  What a ride they have had.
