In business, no one is indispensable.
Bleachy uses it as a marketing tool like Annie alluded to above, albeit at someone else's expense.
How do you think he earned most of his money? It's simple, by fucking people over.

This video actually makes me sad. I feel bad that David Baye had to face people over and over who were getting screwed over by Bleckman. How can Bleckman face himself. I think that has to be a mental disorder.

I don't know Anavar Annie...or maybe I do but I'm not sure what the beef is. Given the posts and verbage, I can only assume you're someone I dated...sorry if thats the case OR one of Dan Ray's friends. While I certainly understand Dan's frustrations with MD, he has fed a LOT of people a LOT of misinformation and flat out blatant lies about me.
Truth of the matter is when I started at MD I went to bat for Dan on a WEEKLY basis trying to get him paid. I have the emails to prove it. Dan was VERY upset because we were no longer covering many of the smaller NPC shows he had been going to for years prior where he also made lots of extra money setting up private shoots on the side. He thought the decision to cover less shows was somehow MY idea, when in fact it was simply a lack of sponsorship dollars for smaller shows.
Dan was our main photographer for our BIGGEST show of the year, the Arnold and I had plans on using him for many other shows as well. HOWEVER, in an effort to save money to help lower costs and actually get people paid, we started using a gentleman named Chris Nichol for a lot of our shows because Chris was/is VERY proficient at shooting BOTH photos and videos at shows at the same time. Obviously you can see where this saves us money on not only fees, but hotels, flights, food.
Dan took that as being a personal move on my end and began getting increasingly upset with me. Without getting into too many details, things went pretty south between Dan and I at Toronto with him taking personal jabs at me on social media at which point I stopped using him all together.
Again, covering LESS shows was not my call and our using Chris Nichol was simply a matter of saving money, nothing more. What upset me most about the entire situation with Dan was just HOW much i tried and tried to get him paid and how he continually thought I had some personal vendetta against him. It just wasn't the case.

David Baye runs at the enemy head on.
Keep in mind revenge is best served cold. There will be opportunities.

Like I said, I completely understood his frustrations, but all that was NOT on me!

Seriously? Tell me anyone is surprised by anything said in this video? And then tell me do you think it really makes a difference?
As far as Dave and John: it simply lends credence to what they have been saying for years...
As to Rx: Is this going to bring more people to the site (or back to it)? Hopefully some sponsors will jump ship to Rx, but then again, why aren't they here now? There are serious problems with the business model for all bbing websites...just take a look at the profitability as well as viability of any of those that still remain....
For Blechy: Other than his ego, he doesn't care. It's obvious he has no love of the sport. Everything he did was for himself. He made his money from his daddy and MD was just a hobby, a way to feel important and get people to worship at his altar. I'd venture to guess that most of the people that weren't paid are not employees but independent contractors, b/c not paying your actual employees can get you into some real hot water, if they are smart enough to go to the proper authorities. How many athletes has he tossed aside and there are plenty that are still lining up for him......I just hope they are smart enough to not be shortsighted b/c for most their window of opportunity to make $$ in this business is fairly small.
For Baye: I don't know him. I did appreciate his contributions and he seems like a nice guy. I'm certain he will do well whether he stays in this industry or not. However, while he came out and confirmed what everyone thought; there will still be someone to take his place and fool themselves into believing that this is not going to happen to them and my guess is it won't be long until they are also on Iron Rage with Dave and John.
People in this industry are either some of the dumbest people on the planet or the most trusting and naive....either way reality hits like a son of a bitch........
