2006 proposals

Bob Cicherillo
IFBB Athletes representative



ITEM 1

AMENDMENT OF SECT 1.7

Amendment of section 1.7   of the IFBB Pro League rules. Athletes WILL be allowed to make appearances on behalf of companies they represent and/ or as individuals to: (including but not limited to) non –sanctioned events, expo’s, guest posing, appearances, seminars, openings, etc. As IFBB athletes are listed as “independent contractors” by our own IFBB by laws and therefore cannot be limited in their ability to make a living from being a professional.

Athlete would be required to be a IFBB athlete in good standing, and any and all promotional items, advertisements, etc linked to said event(s) would require that athlete be billed and represented as an IFBB athlete.

ITEM 2

IFBB TO MAKE ATHLETES EMPLOYEES

Upon denial of ITEM 1, IFBB to make athletes direct members of the IFBB (as opposed to the “Pro division”). Pro athletes would be paid a monthly salary from IFBB and subsequently, would be required by state law to fill out a 10-99-tax form for their individual tax purposes. 10-99 would be required from IFBB (employer) to IFBB pro athletes (employees).





Looks like it only took one guy with big enough nuts to stand up for what's right to get the ball rolling. 

BTW,  I'm no lawyer but this bit here seems to state that no athlete can be suspended for competing in any other federation based on  the IFBB's own by laws that exist right now: "As IFBB athletes are listed as “independent contractors” by our own IFBB by laws and therefore cannot be limited in their ability to make a living from being a professional"


Lee, stick it to the man!!!!   I met you in Perth Western Australia when you were over here doing your seminars earlier this year,  was a pleasure to meet you, and was by far the most entertaining seminar I have been to.


I got money on Chick as athlete's rep trying to take the credit for these changes if they are passed,  but we all know who is really the MAN!!!!

Not sure if anyone has said this yet,  but Mike played Superman in a short film made in '04 called Batman/Superman.

See here,  looks pretty good:

The filmmakers also talked about how they scripted this Arnold vs Lou thing as sort of a "David vs Goliath" or a kind of an attempt as a "Good vs Bad" scenario - sort of the WWE type of drama. If I recall correctly, they originally wanted to portray the dark, brooding, larger Lou as the "villain", and Arnold as the good guy and underdog. If that was true, it certainly didn't work out that way. For obvious reasons, the exact opposite impression came across on-screen.

Lou even wrote (or more likely had ghostwritten) in his autobiography of some of the unrealistic embellishments of the movie - mainly that the apparent close, supporting relationship he and his father had in the movie was a sham. He claimed that his father was always an obnoxious, psychologically abusive egomaniac who insisted on being part of the movie to satisfy his own selfish desires. Of course I realize that there are two sides to every story, and I tend to take anything Lou says with a grain of salt anyway - for obvious reasons.

In the special features on the 25th Anniversary DVD,  they say that the original storyline was supposed to be about this new wunderkind Lou coming and beating the reigning champ for the Sandow..   However,  they state that as they got closer to the show they realised that Lou wouldn't get anywhere near Arnold so had to 're write' the script and make Arnold the mean guy to make it interesting..

Recently got the BFTO VIII 2003 dvd and towards the end during the backstage scene,  I'm sure it has a bit where Craig Titus is standing behind a chainlink fence inside the arena holding on while a couple of 'security' looking dudes are on the other side 'guarding' him...

Was he getting practice for his current accommodation perhaps...  ha ha ha

Don't have any screen shots of it but will try and get some.

Why don't any of these ass clowns inject that crap into their forearms as well?  At least it would then look slightly more proportionate..
