Wolf needs a team as well.
Vic, Jay and Wolf will be fighting for the O next yr
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Ronnies fans may view Victor as the rightful heir to Ronnies throne. I, for one, view Vic as being kind of a Ronnie-protege. Vic being celebrated as being the best bodybuilder in the world I reckon would represent Ronnies opinion and appeal to Ronnies fans. As Ronnie is no longer active on the Olympia stage, I see no problem in them supporting the new blood - especially when it is Vic we're talking about.
That former Team Cutler members cross over just portrays their objectivity in my opinion
Source? Also, in America you're innocent until proven guilty and I don't believe he was convicted for selling ecstasy.Quote
Victor got caught and served his time. He followed the procedures of the American Judicial System and had his sentence reduced. Steroids are a hot topic these days and in the American media are being promoted as a hardcore drug and it's been garnering more attention than designer drugs as of late. There are things I'm not at liberty to say about certain athletes in bodybuilding, knowledge I've accrued from very close sources and let's just say many of the bodybuilders (in no way am I mentioning specific names or deeds) we look up to aren't the best of people. Just because Victor was caught doesn't make him any worse a person than those who haven't. Suppose that you and I both sell drugs and I get caught and you do not does that make you an ethically superior person? No, it just makes you a better drug dealer.Quote
If people are using them that means someone has to be selling them. See my above point as well.Quote
Too often people hate public figures for reasons only portrayed in the media. Sometimes it's jealously, sometimes it's disdain for their occupation or public image but to truly dislike or hate someone without knowing them. For instance, people hate Paris Hilton because she's an obnoxious billionaire who will never have to work a day in her life. I guarantee you that many of us would behave similarly with that kind of money. Trust me, I've dated a girl in the upper 0.5% of American income and it's an incredibly different lifestyle with different rules.Quote
My point was clear: bodybuilding won't be mainstream and the only thing Mr. Olympia is representing are things that speak to fans; not the public.Quote
It's hard to say whether he's interesting or not because we haven't been exposed to him nearly as much as Ronnie, Jay, or others.Quote
Fair enough, and like I said the initial post was made in jest and just a way to introduce a new banner that I made and Pain had worked on for awhile now to MM. It wasn't really intended to make people change who their favorites are, just give them another team option.Quote
I agree to an extent but because, as I've mentioned, he doesn't get the exposure of others. Still, I feel he's been around long enough that people have become fans of his based on things outside his physique.Quote
Oh, and Tunen made a good post as well.
