Your quote reminds me Posted on July 21, 2008 at 12:29:26 PM by Sean Katterle
"Most people are scared to lift against better lifters...many probaly a majority now days are being pussies hunting for trophies." - Josh Bryant
Your quote reminds me of the time The People's Chumpion gained like 2 pounds to "weigh too much" for the weight class that Ed Coan was competing in at nationals. He ate one more White Castle Burger, bumped up a class and took on two amateurs. Bruner's a NATIONAL (hiding from Coan) CHAMPION! Meow meow. Here ##### ##### #####.
I'll be interested in seeing if Pariso's theory on getting people to compete pans out. It certainely works for WABDL and for the USAPL so maybe it will work for him too?
I'd rather watch ten of the greatest lifters on the planet than 200 people who just lift for fun (which should equal more expo general admission ticket sales) but that's just my point of view.
