    Default Hadi Choopan Just CRUSHED Flex Lewis

    Hadi Choopan just crushed Flex Lewis in Korea or wherever the f*ck they are and he lost. Feel free to post photos. I don't feel like taking the time to copy and crop and post photos to demonstrate how the IFBB continues to ruin itself.

    You weren't in the front row so your opinion is invalid!

    Everyone's a pro-level judge with a photo on a computer screen.

    Hadi lost for some not so obvious reasons. Don't always look at still pictures but actual video of the event. But the good thing is that I get to give a nice history lesson

    I can tell you when I was dead wrong about a competitor at a contest I attended (a Masters Nationals show over 10 years ago). A competitor came into the super-heavyweights who was massive, far more so than anyone else onstage. He made the first call-out. I was ready to see him win the show. When he got 5th, I was shocked. But later on, I got the video of the contest & got to see him close-up. He was not in good shape, which the judges could see from the front but I couldn't halfway back in the audience.

    I'll give you another example of something I witnessed at the same show, which also has a Teen Nationals. Two teen competitors were ahead of me at the breakfast buffet the morning after the show, grumbling about their placings. "It's all political, man," one of them said. What I didn't say to them was this: "It may all be political, but you might want to improve your legs, your posing, & your overall condition in order to win a competition."

    It IS political. The Judges are biased towards awarding the best physique on stage.

    Jose seems a bit pissed he's not getting compared to the guy who finishes one place ahead of him these days.

    Is Jose being punished or is it judging incompetence or even are the Middle Eastern guys bringing in a lot of money and they get the 50/50 calls?

    The judges need to be changed up more to avoid competitors placings at every show being almost predetermined in the judges minds before a pose is hit.

    Agreed. Slotting competitors (having them eternally three or four in ranking) happens a lot at the top level of competitve bodybuilding, & it is not fair to them.
