This is one of the few cases where i disagree with Braaq. If ronnie wants to compete he is not harming his legacy at all. No one has ever put together so many absolute blowouts. In '03 he redefined what was possible. At the 2001 AC he was trim and massive at the same time. Sure he is not in that shape anymore. And as a fan it does suck to see that time has caught up with him. But what has always inspired me about ronnie, and what has made me look up to him is his passion. He loves the weights, you can see it in his videos. Most others make it look like they resent being in the gym. Ronnie is having the time of his life. He has dedicated himself to a goal and is sticking by it. In his first Olympia he came dead last, but he worked his way up to amass more pro victories than anyone in the history of our sport. While his record may be tarnished in a victory sense, the man has not lost his passion. Can't fault the guy for doing what he loves.
I meant no offense to Ronnie at all and I am sure that Braaq didnt either. I think we both respect and recognize him as the greatest bodybuilder that has ever lived and possibly ever will. I would love to see Ronnie at events in a cut-off showing off his legendary arms but there is no sense in throwing on posing trunks. It would be great to see ronnie and meet the man behind the legacy but guest posing should be reserved for phenomenol physiques in shape IMO.
I was Team Coleman, but now his time has passed. I am looking to the future and in my eyes the future is Vic, but I would still prefer the old Ronnie over anyone. I am just being realistic...
i see no harm at all with him getting on stage and giving the fans what they want. when it comes to guestposing, you want the biggest and brightest name/personality to get up there and rile the crowd up. it doesn't get any better than ronnie. i'm sure he and everyone else in the crowd know he isn't what he used to be, but i doubt either of them care.
Him guest posing is the major issue, I am responding to them saying he is going to come back and compete again. If you read further back you would see that
Also, seeing Ronnie is great but when you look the way he does I myself do not want him in posing trunks. He can come and sit at a booth and sign pics.
what kind of fucking facts should i cite here to support my outlandish opinion that there is no harm in him guestposing here? oh i'm sorry mr MOTM i guess i should just bow down and accept your OPINION as fact :angrydude: jesus this is not the supplement section, every post in this thread is that of visual opinion.
and i did read your posts back about his structure being gone and he should not COMPETE again, and i agree. but this IS NOT him competing, this is him stepping on stage to guestpose. if you go to a show where ronnie guestposes in the future, feel free to boo while the rest of the crowd goes nuts.
