Hahahaha ok "Willie".

I see your point but what else do you want Melvin to do? Send a singing telegram?

he kinda has a point, supposedly you working for 02 and you have problem with your HR department do you go to the next best unofficial Forum and make it all public?

I mean It's nice that these gentlemen see the need to air all their anger publicly and it is entertaining to see them meltdown and argue, but the point is they will solve 2 things here on getbig...Jack and Shit.

furthermore, it's mostly more damaging to rant and rage over official things than to talk it out, boards and writing is very impersonal and if your English is not up to scratch can lead to missunderstandings.
What these gentlemen should have done is to call a meeting in the firehouse and talked about all that has been said.

Moral panicking again, 240 or Bust? Roll Eyes

Who are you to be giving lectures on board behavior?

You after all have posted lots of insulting .gif's and messages to Cicherillo and others over the years.

Like you would say, monster double standard.

Sorry I'm not coming to the seminar. I doubt no more than 10 people will be there.

Horrible grammar; probably better you're not there to infect the seminar with your sunshine.

this might not be part of this discussion but i was thinking..Bob is the IFBB's athlete's rep, right?  Technically the IFBB and AMI or Wieder are supposed to be 2 seperate entities right?  Should Bob have been involved in Silvio's contract status with Wieder to begin with?  I understand his job is to represent the Pro's but isn't supposed to be to represent them in matters that involve the IFBB? 

This is an honest question.

Hate to say it but Marvelous Melvin is part of the problem.  That goes for any of the pros who use these boards to vent their problems. This goes for Bob and milos and Shawn too.  Nothing constructive or positive ever comes from it.  Melly Mell, you talk shitt about how bob and shawn broke the #1 rule by disrespecting another pro (Milos). But than u come on here and start talkin crap about bob and shawn. Thats why nothin ever gets done. All you fools just keep throwin more wood on your own fire. Mel, your still my boy from the O.C. but i gotta say it how it is.  Willie

He never said anything negative. he voiced his opinion and said "he's had enough".
It wasn't a blatant shot at anyone.

A large part of this issue seems to be a lack of communication capabilities. Although I may not agree with everything Bob does, he seems to be doing the best he can in what is essentially herding cats; there's no shows with greater pro attendence than the Arnold and Olympia, and it's not like Bob isn't easy to get a hold of if there are changes you want to see made. Milos does have a point abot the international community, and it's no secret that they are marginalized and have more obstacles ot overcome than American pros. Perhaps a solution would be to establish a pros-only forum on the IFBB website itself, and on top of that have a monthly newsletter sent out to all IFBB pros that would inform them of upcoming meetings. This way they would have a venue for proposing ideas for all to vote on, as well as being able to hash it out among each other without the interference of outsiders. Have anon-disclosure agreement of some kind to keep things from being reposted outside of the site just to be safe. As well, you could then have absentee ballots so that athletes that cannot make the big meetings for one reason or another can cast their voteson issues, just have the vote close say about a week after the official meetings. Milos, Melvin and Bob, you and any other pros could work together to hash out how you'd want this set up, and I think it would address most of the issues at stake here.

The other big part of this seems to be Shawn's involvement, and he has yet to speak on that, but it appears that he was acting like scum. I think it's noteable that Bob has only been defending his actions, not Shawn's in this, so Shawn still has a lot to answer for.

This whole ugly mess is down to Sean 'child molester' Rey. He has used Bob as a pawn in his vendetta aginst Milos - and its Silvio thats been caught in the crossfire. He has also seriously jeapordised Bob's postion as athletes rep. Indeed, i wouldn't be surprised if its someone else by the end of the month.

Bob, its not to late! Distance yourself from the rat and you may claw back some of the respect you've lost.

Otherwise you're finished.

damn if that is not the vintage shawn ray that we have heard about for years. i have posted on here before that shawn seems like the type of person to sucker punch someone and run away. thanks for proving me right dopey.  shawn you can have all the money in the world. but something you don't have is any ones respect.  that stuff you posted last week about milos and tax problems and all sorts of negative issues, makes you look like a little girl....... grow up! or go away!

Sweet, i thought i was gonna be bored this afternoon. Now i have 11 pages of drama to read  Grin

BBing is like a soap opera for guys that work out. These boards are more entertaining than anything that's on tv during the day.  Grin

Ok, 'west coast willie' Roll Eyes

Bodybuilding is a small sport, and the fans play an integral role. There are hardly any shows so this is how we're entertained. If you don't like it then scurry back to your 'private posing session'.

I am not sure who is more right in this current debate nor do I care. I agree with you 100% Stark about nothing being done and all we see some crap on various boards. I love the sport and enjoy talking to those at various shows and events. However, it is pretty obvious that the sport of bodybuilding is "out of the fringe" and far from mainstream. It iskinda like a small , millitant 3rd party political organization that makes a lot of ruckus on line, but never gets anyone elected .
Over the last 10 years or so I have seen my sport , become  more insular and renegade. Many hardcore types, sport multi tatoos and project a rebel or thug image. They  thumb their noses at the drug laws and all but taunt the feds to bust them. The drug use and physiques get more extreme and freakish along with the behavior and lifestyle of those in it. At the 2004 NC pro the MC said ; " Back on stage after a lay off  here he is, Victor Martinez". The "lay off"
was time spent in a NY jail over a drug conviction and he won the overall that day.

I am NOt going to bash Victor as his drug bust is merely a sympton of where our sport is. He is far from the only person involved in pro bodybuilding that does "questionable" acts. I fear that unless our sport heads more in the direction of "mainstream" physiques, we are doomed to be in an ever downward spiral of obscurity. We need not engage in expensive, invasive drug testing to do this. The pro sport simply needs to judge the physique by a well rounded standard and enforce the existing written judging criteria complete with belly ban.
