Dorian 92, 93, smokes Lee Haney aaaaaaaaall the way. Ronnie's 99 smokes everybody, hands down, game over.
When Michael Jordan came back for the 2nd time did we really want him to come back? Absolutely not, we wanted to remember him for the MJ that he was, not some washed up 40 year old man playing ball or trying to.
Coleman needs to hang up his posing trunks for good.
If his greatest passion is still the gym and stage he should still be at it. If he still thinks he has something left in the tank who are we to tell him to stop? If it were me I would have called it in, but I don't have the same passion for it as he does. He has to "leave it all on the field" so to speak, or else he will always regret not giving it one last go. A champion athlete like him has a will and desire most of us will never understand, its not something you can turn off overnight.
Would Lee have tapped out at 8 if someone before him had already gotten 8? I think he would have tried for 9.
this will always and forever be ronnie coleman to me
no one else comes even close. and that includes lee haney. i don't care that they won the same title the same amount of times, ronnie was absolutely untouchable and unreal.
i dont see why you talk about why is sad that all he has to live for is bodybuilding....
Lets take a look at normal people... what do they have to live for that ronnie doesnt?
infact ronnie has something they dont have... bodybuilding..
whats so wonderful about working till your old and withered while occasionally having a nice time with friends et.., then enjoying your bad health and wrinkled scrotum-like wife
that is basically everyones life in a nutshell
ronnie has a family, hes got children, hes got a degree, hes got money.... apart from the obvious physical differences.. if anything its said that regular people have nothing to live for.. just working then retiring and become a burden on society(cough worsening dependency ratio cough)
You seem to be refering to the competing part of BBing whilst i am refering to the Lifestyle of BBing.
I don't know where he gets his passion but if it is his dream to get number 9 then that's up to him. I will wish him the very best. I don't think he can heal that nerve damage, but I am no doctor. If it is possible for him to make the comeback and win I would love to see it.
