    So I just emailed ESPN...

    So I just sent an email to ESPN regarding the fact that they do not cover Pro Bodybuilding. I didn't spend 3 hours writing it, just made it short and simple. If enough people do this, maybe they'll listen up.

    Here's what I sent:

    This is not so much about the site as it is about ESPN in general. Why is it that you do not cover the world of Pro Bodybuilding? If ESPN would broadcast even just the Arnold Classic and the Olympia, even if at 3 AM, it would be bringing in a whole new audience. Why not add another demographic?

    There's also a phone number you can call:
    888-549-3776 (8:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. ET, seven days a week)

    If I get any kind of response, I'll post it. Just want to make it clear to the BB.com staff that I'm not trying to take anything away from them, but they only cover the Arnold and the Olympia. The fact that I have no way of watching the Nationals this month really upsets me and is what prompted my email.

    agreed.

    they are hypocrites and there is a laundry list of things proving it in their reporting and broadcasting.

    also, the naive idiots of the world equate steroids with conditioning 99% of the time. big fat guys with ridiculous amounts of lean mass under 25% bodyfat don't jump out and scream steroids to most people upon first sight. even deadlifting a tractor 20 times doesn't, as long as we can't see striations as it's happening. but get a bunch of 6 packs, veins, oil, and fake tan and look out.

    now that we've established the hypocrisy that is ESPN, let us realize that nothing on this planet screams steroids as blatantly loud as the IFBB, and that is why it's never coming back.

    bb.com would love to have bb'g on espn....talking about the new demographic, all those people would all of a sudden get into bb'g and supps and trying to look leaner and bigger. I guarantee bb.com would make a lot more money from espn then showing free webcasts.

    x2. Out of sight, out of mind.

    Just like in any other business, politics etc there must be a reasonably effort to sweep the dirty side of the business under the carpet & not make it obvious to the public. Bribery, corruption, cheating etc all exists, but its not in your face. Thats the way society operates. Over 250 lbs shredded with veins everywhere in nothing but a piece of string, little can be hidden.
    .

    "thats right, its just business. pure & simple.
    not nose biting, alien hiding, secret parking-lot meeting conspiracies.
    just pure business, ally-favoring, charade playing business.
    & they always pull the conspiracy card out to make anyone who questions it sound like some paranoid freak."

    It goes further than that. ESPN, for the most part, has very little choice in the matter. All major channels are owned by either Disney, Time Warner, or News Corp. This includes ESPN, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc. NONE of these stations would ever cover a story that either shows their parent corporation in bad light or against the parent company's interest. They won't bite the hand that feeds them. Regardless of how steriods may effect the body, the public opinion is what matters. The public sees steroids as black death, so for their best interests, no corporation would ever fully support any story/headline that may suggest steroids are a good thing.

    It's not necessarily bodybuilding's fault, however, just how the general public sees it. Think about it. What does the general public think of when you say baseball? In light of Barry Bonds, and A-Rod, and McGwire, 99% will say the Yankees, Babe Ruth, Fenway Park, national passtime, etc. What does the general public think of when you say football? Forget the fact that most, if not all D1 college players, let alone NFL have used steroids at some time in their career, the general public will say the NE Patriots, the Super Bowl, Packers playing in the snow in -10 degrees, Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Fooltball, etc. And these are also sports that kids in school can relate to. What does the general public think of when you say Bodybuilding? Steriods and Arnold. Period. The general public has no idea who the hell Mentzer is, or who Lee Haney is. They see 300 pound guys at 2% bodyfat standing on stage in a thong, and they think of nothing but steroids.

    Even ask the general public about the World's Strongest Man. Most are either uninterested, or just think it's a bunch of huge fat guys tossing stones around, who cares? It's all in the general public's perception. They see Jesse Marunde and they think gigantic man with some bodyfat who's incredibly strong. They see Ronnie Coleman, and they think roided out freak.

    So, for the same reason middle/high school's will never have a legit competable bodybuilding program, the major corporations who own the television stations will never show something that puts steroid use in a positive light as per the public's opinion. Disney would rather you worry about the war overseas than to let you think it's okay for Mickey Mouse to take dbol.

    Its mostly about ratings. More people will watch the world series of poker than a bodybuilding competition. If IFBB got huge ratings every week it would be on espn or cbs or even V.S. I just don't think enough people would watch to bring in the desired advertising revenue.

    Audience loves watching progress in the show. Basketball scores move up as the show progresses..same with baseball..same with strongest man (adding of weights and actually doing something)...poker money goes up, people get eliminated etc etc.

    Im a bodybuilding fan but if i put myself in a layman audience shoes, its boring as shiit. Its like watching flower arrangement competition with the flowers already arranged and just presenting the final product. May take long to get good in flower arrangement (just an example), but no one can see the 'hardwork' you did

    i'm just poking fun at the analogy... Completely opposite side of the spectrum, lol.

    I still think it's funny. Sensitive much?
    I do agree though, BBing is dang boring. Great if your into it, but not something your average overweight Joe wants to sit around and watch with a beer and potato chips. Now maybe if we could find a way to put the BBers in Nascars right before posing.. we'd cover a whole new demographic.

    thats why commentators and visible score sheets as they are judged would actually make it interesting and add suspense...

    The way it is presented now would put anyone to sleep

    but the thing with the worlds strongest man competition is that the general public think that they are all natural.

This includes ESPN, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc. NONE of these stations would ever cover a story that either shows their parent corporation in bad light or against the parent company's interest. They won't bite the hand that feeds them. Regardless of how steriods may effect the body, the public opinion is what matters. The public sees steroids as black death, so for their best interests, no corporation would ever fully support any story/headline that may suggest steroids are a good thing.

    It's not necessarily bodybuilding's fault, however, just how the general public sees it. Think about it. What does the general public think of when you say baseball? In light of Barry Bonds, and A-Rod, and McGwire, 99% will say the Yankees, Babe Ruth, Fenway Park, national passtime, etc. What does the general public think of when you say football? Forget the fact that most, if not all D1 college players, let alone NFL have used steroids at some time in their career, the general public will say the NE Patriots, the Super Bowl, Packers playing in the snow in -10 degrees, Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Fooltball, etc. And these are also sports that kids in school can relate to. What does the general public think of when you say Bodybuilding? Steriods and Arnold. Period. The general public has no idea who the hell Mentzer is, or who Lee Haney is. They see 300 pound guys at 2% bodyfat standing on stage in a thong, and they think of nothing but steroids.

    Even ask the general public about the World's Strongest Man. Most are either uninterested, or just think it's a bunch of huge fat guys tossing stones around, who cares? It's all in the general public's perception. They see Jesse Marunde and they think gigantic man with some bodyfat who's incredibly strong. They see Ronnie Coleman, and they think roided out freak.

    So, for the same reason middle/high school's will never have a legit competable bodybuilding program, the major corporations who own the television stations will never show something that puts steroid use in a positive light as per the public's opinion. Disney would rather you worry about the war overseas than to let you think it's okay for Mickey Mouse to take dbol.
    But still they have WWE Program on the TV. Batista and John Cena have steroid written all over them self. And WWE is one of the favorite companies that get bombarded with Steroids from other News station. Still it is on Prime Time on TV and is having good ratings.

    Bodybuilding just doesn't have the audience....it's as simple as that. Also, as big a fan as I am....the shows are boring as **** to watch.

    It has nothing to do with steroid use. It's all about $$$....if something makes money, morals go out the window. There's been blatant association with steroids in baseball, football, etc. That's fine, cuz they bring in $$$.....nobody cares.

    I think if marketed better tho, it could gain popularity. But you would have to somehow show the guys personality, show them working out up to the show, etc. Something to get people interested, have them rooting for a certain person. To an average Joe they all look the same and there's no drama.
