it simply can't match IFBB. It is more or less like boxing. The most popular category is the "Heavyweight". Or like in football, lower divisions are less popular than first divisions.
Although I would like to see that natural bbing could have the same impact as IFFB has...

Integrity for me is a big bonus. I mean the whole shake your ass thing by the 300 pound monsters is way out of line! Rape music must also leave!

Yeah, it wont.  Unless the IFBB does strict drug tests where the competitors in IFBB come back down to the natural size.

No I think if there is to be a future for bodybuilding then everybody should be on the base level of the same drugs and monitored by respectable doctors.

Course it wont, the freakyness is what people wanna see.  Without it bodybuilding would slowly fade away IMO.

people like it just for the freak show or rare physique's, that's hard to do with natural bodybuilding.

Having one 'main' natural fed, like IFBB is for unnaturals, couldn't hurt. Maybe there's one already, I dunno. But it would help shift the focus solely on one thing, and people can concentrate on that fed, its contests and competitors; like how we all talk about the IFBB over any other unnatural fed.

As for size of the competitors, you really get a mixed bag at natural shows. From the under 21's Average Joe physique to the top guys worthy of the NPC. I'm sure most people would only want to see the big guys. In the IFBB, they're ALL big guys! So you get your money's worth there. Just one reason why untested shows are ruling over natural shows.

Like I've said before, get one main natural division, like the IFBB, and promote the heck out of it. Get a magazine, 3 or 4 shows a year, get your marketable guys doing the marketing side of things and just put the eggs in one basket for a while. You need to draw attention to things before people can become aware of it.

It cant. Naturals don't have the hardiness and the full look of a juicer. It's simply not worth looking at.

Besides, the top "natural" athletes are on insuline/hgh etc. to gain an edge over the real naturals.

Top sport = drugs

Yeah, it wont.  Unless the IFBB does strict drug tests where the competitors in IFBB come back down to the natural size.

The industry would collapse.

I support them, I go to them as much as I can....I am just stating that people dont wanna pay the big bucks or pack gymnasiums unless there is going to be a freak show.  It's the shock value.  There is no shock value in Natty bodybuilding.  The only people who seem to enjoy the natty shows is those that understand how much harder it is and appreciate the smaller defined physique.  And without people packing natty shows, there will be no money to entice people to do it other than their conviction about being drug free. 

Just my .02 in my rambling mood tongiht.

That's good to hear Jonno. I am going to make a special effort to attend as many locally held nattie shows in 2007.
