    Geoff, here is my copy edit of your first paragraph.

    (My edit: boldface notes changes)

    The IFBB New York Pro holds the distinction of being the third most prestigious show in its league. Some may argue against this notion, but these disputes are really just an attempt to show respect for the other IFBB pro shows, as opposed to being a serious argument. The New York Pro's dominance is true not only because of the many big-name competitors who show up in New York every year, but also due to the deep history of the show. Once referred to as Night of Champions, the New York Pro has seen more legendary performances and unforgettable story lines than nearly any other IFBB show. This show has also been a launching pad into professional stardom for more than a few future hall-of-fame bodybuilders. This year's show is on shaky ground, but it has the potential to go down as one of the most memorable of its kind.

    We need commentary like yours, Geoff. Not enough of it exists. Best of luck with your writing.

    Geoff's original text:

    The IFBB New York Pro holds the distinction of being the third most prestigious show in all of professional bodybuilding. Some may argue against this fact, however these disputes are really just an attempt to show respect to all the other pro shows, as opposed to a serious argument. This fact is not only true because of the many big names which show up in New York every year, but also due to the deep history that resides amongst the show. Once referred to as Night of Champions, the New York Pro has seen more legendary performances and unforgettable story lines than nearly every other show. This show has also been a launching pad into professional stardom for more than a few future hall of fame bodybuilders. This years rendition of the show is on shaky ground, but also has the potential to go down as one of the most memorable of its kind.

    I think it's a great show personally. It's not falling apart by any means.

    And this year's show was particularly good, except for Guy. But that wasn't the show's fault.

    Having Sergio, Jr. win it in his first foray on the pro stage makes for a scribe's dream lead-in. I bet anyone worth their salt in this industry (so that eliminates Ron "Rear Window" Harris) will have a field day with that.

    For what it's worth I've been following shows for years now and didn't even realize last week was the new York pro until akim Williams Instagram posted something about it....then I saw the line up and really had no interest in following

    I agree-only wish female bodybuilding was still in it and would toss men's physique and bikini but I know they're here to stay. Oh, and while I'm fantasizing here-I'd replace bikini with "Wellness".

    I think it's a curious phenom that bodybuilders as a group have been so opposed to some of the new categories of competition, but the NPC/IFBB is completely indifferent to what they think.
