So, how much is his contract. You know in other sports they state what the amount is. In bbing, it's all hush-hush, kinda like their embarassed because it will be compared to the "real sports"

That was cool interview with Oscar Arden. For a change someone who knows the mental aspect of bodybuilding preparation, Kai's not so secret weapon. I wonder how many pros would've been seeking him to help them out? 8)

Oscar seems pretty cool.  How much longer till he gets more "clients"?
Everything is BIGGER in Texas!!!

Jay Cutler goes from Flex to MD
Kai Greene goes from MD to Flex


Sometimes the fit can be better with a different magazine, or gets a better deal.

In any case, congrats to Kai from joining Flex Magazine. 

This year's Olympia is going to be a major battle -

Kai Greene
Phil Heath
Jay Cutler
Dexter Jackson


Having the rights to photo shoots, videos and comments heading for the 2010 Mr. Olympia for Kai, who may just win the O, is not a bad thing at all...

Money always talk.

Especially in a "sport" where the athletes barely get any money

Does he get more now? Not sure about that.

You can be sure Cutler definetely gets more money over at MD now, otherwise he wouldn't have changed.

for a while there it kinda looked like flex was falling off, MD was signing all these legenda, and up-and-coming talent..........and in a few short moves, flex might arguably have th e advantage

MD had kia, branch, then got jay......on top of that had a bunch of young guys

then flex got kai, and they already have phil, dennis wolf, and zack khan........now they look to be aligning them selves well for the next couple of years

i dont even know what that is supposed to mean

being the worlds biggest schmoe is one thing, but looking to bodybuilders to provide you inspiration  and meaning with their verbal profundity is something else entirely ::) ::)

Kai fulfilled his side of the contract

do you believe Gluteman would have resigned him if Kai had placed poorly the last couple of years?

"loyalty" has nothing to do with it; it's business

... by signing an exclusive publishing deal with Weider Publications/AMI.

Aren't 'exclusive publishing deals' usually reserved for writers, photographers, etc.?

Would be funny if they 're gonna publish Kai's drawings too?
He is definitely talented there also.

This is such nonsense.... It wasn't long ago that Ron Harris was interviewing Kai Green, about comments in Flex mag about his Grapefruit proclivities, and he said something to the effect of, (Paraphrase) "Really..they said that... Sigh.. Well I don't really care about Flex magazine, and I haven't read it in a long time. I don't think most serious bodybuilders do."

Perhaps someone can pull up the exact quote...its from the Issue where Kai is doing a photoshoot in the streets of New York.

In any event... Kai is just doing the typical move of pretend like "Insert company here" is the greatest thing ever, always had an overwhelming desire to work/be with, etc etc.

Lies.

Please refer to where FLEX magazine said this about Kai.  I'd like to read it.

I believe it was Julian Schmidit doing a write up for the New York pro.

His quote was: "Kai Greens meteoric rise to the top, has been about as refreshing as a tall cold glass of Grapefruit Juice."

And then after some commentary basically states that Green is a bit overrated and lacks the muscle maturity, and structure to be a top level contender.

This exact quote was recited to Kai in the Ron Harris interview I mentioned, where Green blew off Flex as rubbish for non-serious bodybuilders.

But wait... its his DREAM to be a Weider athlete, once they offer to pay him.  ::)

Why sully this fine board with the quote of Sean Rey?
