    I don't think I've ever hated anyone. But if I ever came close to actual hate, it would be towards Rich Piana. He's the king of douche-bags.

    No. That's not the case.

    It's because if the bodybuilder isn't sponsored they're only making money for themselves hence the reason random people aren't giving them handouts or paying for their expenses.

    When you're an athlete that's helping an organization thrive and make more money it's a WHOLE DIFFERENT BALLPARK. At that point, you can almost expect to not have to pay for anything and get paid more because you're actually helping a whole organization thrive rather than just yourself.

    Bodybuilders help their organization thrive. I recommend you do some more research

    Im sorry but IMO based on many posts you have made you posses a very narrow, ignorant view of how things in the real world actually work. This is not an issue worth arguing but for goodness sake put down the iphone while you are at dunkin donuts or 7-11 scarfing down free coffee when you should be serving and protecting and stop posting such ignorant rubbish.

    I don't even know what that means. I've done more research and it's an extremely selfish sport and it's virtually undeniable. They don't earn a fraction as much, because they aren't bringing a fraction as much in for other people. This is with the exception of the top tier bodybuilders who have sponsors and are signed. But for people that were at Rich Piana's level, it's not even worth it. He would probably agree with me too. He's even said he's spent 15-20k on his body for each show and he didn't even get a trophy or place.

    Just because you didn't agree with me on something that you were wrong about, about doesn't mean you can discredit me on every topic that exists. If you want to know the definition of ignorant, it's exactly how you're acting.

    Why? Everything he said in that video is dead on the money.

    There are lots of individual sports that are just about one person yet the athletes/competitors make a lot of money or at least do fairly well. Golf, tennis, MMA, boxing...on and on. Bodybuilding's problem is it doesn't bring the fans, and that's because it's run like a scam. I've always said if bodybuilding were a commercial it would be the late night infomercial of can-o-hair. And it's a shame...there would never be fans equal to any of the big 3, NFL, NBA or MLB but bodybuilding could do better and could be run with some level of sanity, legitimacy and purpose. But that's unlikely any time soon.

    I didn't watch the video and was referring to him as an individual, not this particular video. Although I doubt he is dead on the money with respect to anything he says. I can't stomach anymore of his worthless videos. Watch his videos about hCG and PCT use and tell me if you can make sense of any of them. He's clueless and has no idea how these drugs impact your body, yet he's got the gonads to advise young fellas on their use. Never a real explanation, just telling people what to do. There's no doubt in my mind that his followers/fans are likely the most unhealthy in this arena.

    Him and his coach buddy are stuck in the 60's/70's and haven't become educated enough. He's an embarrassment to the community. But that's just my opinion, you can love him and be his fan, just not for me.

    I don't know much about Piana other than he's been around a good while. I haven't seen too many of his videos and pretty much never watch anyone's video if it's just on and on talk about gear, mostly because I don't care, so I have no idea what he said about HCG or PCT. Anyway, the above video was simply about the cheapness and greed of the bodybuilding industry, which was dead on IMO and hard to disagree with.
