Chris Aceto also is Shawn Rhoden's guru and was not happy with the 'suspension' - was it fair for AMi to jump to gun on this or should they have waited?



Quote
From AMI.... NEW YORK, July 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- American Media, LLC Chairman and CEO David J. Pecker, owner and operator of Joe Weider's Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Expo and the Mr. Olympia Contest, today announced that he is revoking the eligibility of 2018 Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden from competing in the 2019 and future Mr. Olympia competitions. The announcement follows the recent charges that led to a warrant issued in Utah for Mr. Rhoden stemming from an alleged incident in October 2018. In addition to revoking Mr. Rhoden's eligibility from future Mr. Olympia competitions, American Media also announced that it would suspend coverage of Mr. Rhoden in its media brands, including Muscle & Fitness and FLEX, until the legal process has been completed.



From Chris Aceto --> therealtechnician

This is the guy who unilaterally decides who can’t compete at the Olympia. Who controls bodybuilding now ? I always thought it was the people who built it and earned the respect of the athletes. I thought Jim Manion was numero uno.

It appears that the the guy who was granted immunity recently and who by all accounts knows nothing about bodybuilding – has jumped the gun and decided a Mr Olympia – accused of a crime- must be guilty of a crime without due process, without a trial, without picking up a phone and asking the competitor “what the hell is going on?” There is something fundamentally wrong with the entire NPC/Pro League if someone is allowed to be kicked out of the sport after being accused of something. (Even criminal) without asking the accused “ is this true?”

If this is allowed to happen – that Shawn Rhoden is banned from the Olympia – then bb just is nothing more then gutless crappy business, no real passion from anyone, no integrity left, no balls anywhere to say this is unfair. The irony of course is this is the type of story the Enquirer would salivate over!

It's not about what is fair.  Life isn't fair.  They're protecting their business interests by distancing themselves from Rhoden until the matter is resolved.  No surprise there, fair or not.  You simply can't have someone currently charged with rape on stage competing, let alone the defending Mr. Olympia.

I can halfway tolerate this, only because Rhoden was actually charged.

Casino magnate Steven Wynn had an honourary degree revoked merely because of sex crime allegations. And that's some bullshit, IMO.

LOL.

The whole history of the IFBB has been unfair from its earliest days with Sergio and Nubret's suspensions all the way to Dorian, Ronnie, Jay and Heath being gifted wins during their reigns.

Pecker did jump the gun but as Mr.1 said, it isnt about whats fair, and it never has been, its about protecting their business interests.

Rhoden shouldnt compete until this is settled and I honestly cant imagine he would want to focus on contests when his life is on the line (although Kobe played during the NBA season during his trial, so maybe shawn would want to compete).

So, Pecker acted prematurely, imposing a stiff sentence ?  Hard to believe.

The IFBB is sending a strong message to all competitors. “Don’t do anything to make the IFBB look bad, or you will be punished by the IFBB.... before you are punished by the courts/judges.”

I agree with the decision. You can't put yourself in these type of situations. I have a business to protect. It's unfortunate by why would AMI shift heat on themselves by allowing a POTENTIALLY guilty man compete and win it's most prestigious title?  It just looks bad. Rhoden has to sit this one out.

I thought the IFBB had a code of ethics, just like the NFL or other organizations have.  This was one from a long time ago, before the separation of the IFBB and IFBB Pro League

https://www.getbig.com/info/ifbb/ifbb-codeofethics.htm



AMI has a right to protect their interests, but the wording could of been differerent, like revoked or suspended for conduct not becoming until legal court case is done.  After all, this is a violent crime (a serious one at that being alleged), not a white collar crime, so action had to be taken.

Wasn’t he Muntzer’s “guru” too? And others that are now competing with lime as fertilizer?

RON and some of you other BetBiggers with whom I disagree ,

Sure enough ... "Action had to be taken" by Mr. Pecker, but that 'action' should have been more lenient until a court decision was made.

It would seem to have been a better decision on Mr. Pecker's part if he had simply asked Mr. Rhoden to 'step-aside' from all IFBB activities and magazine coverage until any future trial was conducted.

Then if Mr. Rhoden failed to agree or comply, Mr, Pecker would appear to be more justified in making his present decision.

No matter what any contract states .... any man/woman is (or should be) considered innocent until the courts prove otherwise.

And I would bet ya a dollar to a do-nut that some ambicious lawyers are taking as close a look at this 'decision' as most GetBiggers appear to be doing.

BUT...  Right now I'm wondering what the IFBB is thinking about regarding Priest's and Arceto's seemingly provocative IFBB comments?

Will they also be asked to leave .... or simply ignored now and in the future throughout eternity

Chris the drug dealer technician hasn't figured out how business works?

Bodybuilding 101

$$$ = power

Bodybuilding 102

the "sport" isn't exactly known for the highest ethical or moral standards

as long as you kiss manions ass and pose for big dick steve, you'll be fine.
(but don't get caught raping)
