"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Bodybuilding:
The developing of the body through exercise and diet; specifically: the developing of the physique for competitive exhibition

Nothing about sports ...

Nothing about athletics ...

Nothing about games ...

Competitive exhibition.

Now let Andrew's and Brian's "games" begin again.

"Idiotic thread"?

Last paragraph, first sentence of Andrew's original thread, quote, "I want to hear your opinions!"

So, now the rest of the forum has a chance to express their opinions, which Andrew asked for in the first place, and the thread is "idiotic"?

As the saying goes, "Be careful what you ask for. You may get it."

Oh, and let us count the number of times Brian "will refrain from posting any more" only to ... post again.

Because you asked for people's opinion, and now you are going to get it.

Who gives a rat's ass(pardon my French) how many people on this board believe whether 'bodybuilding' is a sport or not.The truth(the recognition of reality) is not determined by numbers, nor is a definition.

I posted this on Andrew's original post and I will do it again:

Again, beauty pageants are competitive exhibitions.

Someone is named a winner and others chosen as runner-ups. But although beauty pageants are competitive exhibitions, pageants are not sports.

All sports are competitive exhibitions when performed before an audience, but as in the case of beauty pageants and bodybuilding ... not all competitive exhibitions are sports.

Or do you think beauty pageants are sports?

Maybe someone else can explain the distinction to him.

Yet another brilliant contribution.

It's a sport unless you decide to do it then it's definitely entertainment in that case :-)

Andrew did ... or he said he did.

Read his first post on the original thread.

His words, "I want to hear your opinions!"

So now, he will get the forum's opinion in unequivocal, numeric terms.

A poll does not prove whether bodybuilding is or is not a sport. But it does reflect the opinions of those who decide to vote ... something Andrew originally stated that he wanted.

Tony,

Asking for other people's opinions about a subject is different than a taking a poll trying to see how many people agree with said subject. Andrew started a particular and interesting and somewhat intellectual 'debate.' I know the intention of the poll and it is not as innocent as Andrew's question.

I read all of the comments to Andrew's question and it's juts mind boggling how people think (or can't logically) sometimes.

According to the dictionary definition, bodybuilding is a sport.

What do we learn?

How sorry dictionary definitions can be.

You do realize, and this was clearly stated already and ignored, that a definition does not have to include all its aspects at the risk of future exclusion. A table is not defined as having four legs, but it can have four legs. Bodybuilding does not have to say it's a sport to be a sport. Pure brilliance on here. I did say I wouldn't respond again, but lack of effort in thinking is a real pet peave of mine.

Brian the problem is when others don't agree with you they must be qualify their opinion and when they don't you spaz out. As if an opinion needs qualification.

This whole thread is about you not being able to accept other peoples opinion. Regardless of the definition you can't accept that people view bodybuilding differently and haven't over analyzed it to death like yourself. Bodybuilding as a sport is a bad joke and it's entertainment value is even more laughable. A circus sideshow at best.

Peeve ... not peave.

Thinking must be a part-time activity for you.
