The IFBB/AMI should be concentrating on bringing the Olympia back to it's former level, not trying to add gimmick rounds to the show.  Get rid of the WWE antics, act professional, let Jim Manion run the press conference, and rehearse everything before you go live (especially the night show).  That can all be done this year.  The following year, look for a new venue where the contest, expo, and hotel are together.

Stop whining!  Let's hope the PDI does show some form of success so we will have a choice as oppose to the same damn olympia for the last three years.  I have been following bodybuilding since before the 2002 Olympia and besides Gustavo, Victor, Gunter, Branch (sort of) the game hasn't changed one bit.  It is like wrestling because wrestling fans have been fed the same WWE crap since WCW was bought out by them. Same thing with the IFBB.  When the WBF came around it actually signed athletes to contracts which in turned changed the industry where now todays' pros and amateurs can make a living off of bodybuilding (Chick).  So competition makes everyone better and us as fans should welcome it.  I hope more people jump to PDI.  I bet everyone would love to see Ronnie/Jay 5.  More tired than Rocky movies.

Its a fantastic idea and would really liven up the show. Too often the evening show is boring, and unless you're pretty close to the stage a bit redundant. Can you imagine fan faves Lee and Ruhl posing off, or Ronnie and Dex, Gunter and Jay etc etc? Or the contrast between Darrem and James? The unexpected element is great, gauranteed excitment! And its great that everyone would be involved, no more standing back watching the inevitable Ronnie, Jay and Baddell.
Well done Chick, the fans will love this. Do your best to get the other pros on board. Bribe, blackmail or threaten them - just do it!

Well at least they trashed the stupid challenge round.  Grin

This new idea is really just asking for more problems though. Judging it off of crowd applause would be a disaster. It would be easy when you get Big Ron up against Kris Dim, but get Ron against Jay, or Gunter against Gustavo and it will be simply a judgement call by someone on stage. The only way this would work is to equip each seat with some sort of electronic voting device but to do that you would use up the extra $50k in equipment rental. Just use the $50k to sweeten the prize money for the lower placings, or use it to get a better production together.

As for IFBB not letting pros that compete in the PDI events compete in IFBB events, that is really a bunch of crap. Chick, you should be concentrating more on this issue that the fluffball challenge round crap. The IFBB doesn't own the rights to the pros, they just sanction events. If they want exclusivity, then they need to put the pros under a season contract and pay them for it (like the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB do).

 It's not that it's a bad idea, but I can see us complaining that the crowd was biased. Cries of racism will be just around the corner Grin

 At least Bob actually cares. Jay is successful enough that he doesn't have to concern himself with the fates of fellow pros.

Your awesome Lee great idea. And to avoid contriversy about who gets the most crowd responce you could place a decabel meter. They use this in australian rules football for the richmond football club (the tigers) when your at a game and it has a crowd meter for when they get a goal and if the meter gets to 100 a tiger comes on the screen and roars it sounds lame but it really gets the crowd into it. I personally think this idea would work wonders. NO BULLSHIT about the results. What do you think Lee? Grin

Bob, is the money that those of us from the "peanut gallery" spend on magazines, supplements, DVDs and tickets as worthless as our opinions?

Well, last year when he dropped from the Olympia didn't seem so concerned about his fans...
There is a not so subtle distinction between words and facts.
