It is also the 50th anniversary of the contest!

It's not, first one was held in 1965 so its the 50th time its been held but not its 50th Anniversary.

Arnold is also the youngest competitor to win the Olympia title without beating anyone, a feat unlikely to be matched.

Wow I used to think that Ronnie took the Back Double Bi and Lat Spread but those show it to be much closer with Dorian taking both!

Dorian getting ass raped.

Lights out, game over!


Except that the Ronnie part of the image is way different than the original form Muscletime! If Dorian had turned up in the same condition as Ronnie at that show he would have been at least 10lbs heavier!

I posted this comparison earlier. Shows Ronnie from top to bottom and he's still destroying Dorian

That's a bad comparison because the lighting is making a big difference to how they look. Unfortunately due to injuries we never got to see how Dorian could have looked so its pointless comparing photos of them at different points in their career and the fact remains that Dorian always beat Ronnie when they competed. And Dorian was never beaten when he was Mr Olympia, unlike Ronnie :-)

The fastest runner of all time Ben Johnson was also Jamaican

Apart from the 4 people who have set faster times including Bolt.

Hardly the point.

Their actions should not have provoked the reaction it did.

The fact is they should not have had a situation to exploit. The fact they exploited it is not an issue. The fact there is something to exploit IS the issue.

Blame lays squarely with the mob there.

No doubt you've signed the proclamation and sent in your donation!
maybe you can explain what the "United West" mean by this:

"WHEREAS, we reject the embracing of “multiculturalism” into our society as it has proven to be the underlining erosion of civilized cultures in European capitals. The founding fathers decreed that the objectives of the newborn independent United States were: “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” as a nation of immigrants who came to our golden shores in succeeding waves and became the “melting pot” of America – the land of the free and the home of the brave;"

The poor innocent "Christians" are a bunch of pro-Israel activists who went there to provoke trouble so they could use it as propaganda for their cause.

Is your degree an M.Phil. in Science or an M.Sc. in Philosophy of Science? The latter sounds like a rather unique degree; I haven't heard of any institution granting a degree in the "Philosophy of Science" and would like to know what the curriculum included.

The 1975 Mr Australia was fixed. Paul Graham scored me low as did Arnold. So I placed last in the tall class. The places were by class not overall.

In the old days if you owned a gym you were considered by NABBA in England as being a professional bodybuilder. What a joke. I taught high school full time, was going to graduate school at night and ran my gym after school. There was hardly time to train. I did that after the gym closed. Yes, some owners do train when the members are there but I never did when I was competing.

Those "Professional" rules had nothing to do with NABBA. Prior to 1974 the Australian Bodybuilding Federation made up their own rules and judging criteria, then in '74 they became affiliated to the IFBB. NABBA hadn't even bothered to reply to Frank Burwash's request to affiliate with them.

There is only one person who can save it .

Stevie Wonder would have put up a better fight than Tay Bludsoe did against Ferguson. He'd lost his last 3 fights by TKO.

I doubt many on here would get past the first page :-)
Here's an excerpt from one of the writers previous works.

"We define 'obesity epidemic entrepreneurs' in an ideal typical sense to refer to actors who socially construct medicalised fatness as a health problem for other people and/or themselves. ‘Modes of entrepreneurship’ is perhaps more of an apt descriptor as we are less concerned with concrete individuals than with definitional practices. That said, we identify individuals who publicly enact the role of the obesity epidemic entrepreneur for illustrative purposes."

Now that's a lottery jackpot  Shocked

And the great thing with the lottery over here is that you pay no tax on it and its a lump sum payment.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Phil Heath - Ending the debate for good on: June 21, 2011, 02:10:42 AM
yeah but its not Phil whos bringing the customers in.  They could spend that 500,000 (which is good endorsement money for anybody) and get a big name athlete that people actually know.

The majority of people who buy bodybuilding magazines also buy supplements so sponsoring a top bodybuilder is going to attract more of those buyers.
Sponsoring a top athlete in any other sport may raise your brand recognition but unless that demographic buys supplements you are not going to sell more.

None of you fear that the major bodybuilding magazines will start to distance themselves from displaying Arnold pictures?


Distance themselves from Arnold and they lose $100's thousands in print and advertising sales. This latest revelation may have tarnished his reputation to some of his political supporters but in business terms, its great for him.

23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jason Ellis jury trial delayed again - marries the girl on: April 24, 2011, 11:37:49 AM

Shortly after the arrests, the alleged victim received a text message from Hecker's cellphone signed "J," the initial of Ellis' first name, according to Freeman's testimony. The message asked the girl whether her mother would consent to her marrying at 16.

Looks like he may have been hoping to avoid prosecution by marrying her at 16.

" If either of you is under eighteen (18) years of age, you will need to make an appointment with a counselor, appear before a superior court judge, show certified copies of your birth certificates, and have one parent appear with you when you apply for the marriage license."

He knew exactly what he was doing when he "groomed" her so I hope the law is harsher in the US than it was over here in the UK recently.

I know someone that knows him. His father is big John Fury, nephew of Bartley Gorman, King of the Gypsies. Family of very hard men. John Fury was legendary down Epsom Downs races fighting bare-knuckle. Bartley Gorman's legend was even bigger.

John won't be there to watch his son fight for a while
