    All it did was further the idea that Branch was much better...and created an impression of RR being a little unprofessional.

    It didn't seem like Branch cared as much as you guys are making it seem like he did.

    Thats the name of his game. Overcompensation and inner demons.
    Criticism is a prejudice made plausible.

    Because you say so, or because the American head judge said so...?? They wouldn't even have Rockel next to Branch in the first call-out. Wouldn't that make sense since they are the two highest placing athletes from the AC. At least to get a first perpective where Branch and Ronny were at that point. I think it's time we all stop defending bullshit when we see it!!!

    Posing next to someone is one thing, Stalking someone and basically trying to bully your way into a spot that they are already starting to pose in is unsporting. A friendly nudge is one thing, Being an ass hole is another.
    +1 To Branch. And in my opinion to compair Rockel to Branch.. pft, give me a Brake.

    I feel sorry for Ronny. He looked best on that stage, and if you watch on the video j.j. and b. warren push him really hard when he is trying to get between them. People should open their eyes, these guys (judges, sponsors and athletes) made their own "clan" and only a few are allowd to be up there. If you are an "outsider" you get pushed asside. This is available everywhere and unfortunately in bodybuilding it's getting more and more obvious. No wonder why BBing is having few fans left..

    I don't think Rockel was trying to get the attention of the judges, he was just too frustrated because he knew what was coming.
    Also the whole "judging" system pretty much don't exist, actually never existed. The athletes who have the bigger sponsorships(supplement contracts, magazine contracts etc) and generally better PR than others, are the ones who will take the top placings, it's not rocket science - on the contrary it's pretty simple. The "man behind the lights" is the one who makes the call, how the athletes will place - everybody i believe knows what's going on in reality.

    For example on this event, it's pretty obvious who's should be the winner and generally how the placings should really be. Even if you get a whole set of - blind/high out of their minds/half naked with stripper's glitter dust all over - judges they can tell you that Rockel is on another level in comparison to Brach and pretty much everyone on that line up. Please i don't wanna hear any crap about his back and ham/glute water weight or even an aesthetics comparison. For the second one there's no point, Branch has no aesthetics whatsover to begin with.

    Plus it's pretty lame that Rockel gets robbed that often, that much and that obviously. It's like having a couple of thieves trying to rob a bank and the cops set up red carpet and open the safe for them - it cannot get more lame than this

    Great post.

    I can understand Ronny frustration about all this crap.

    Branch ran away like a pussy. He knows he can't compete w Ronnie in this show. I guess being good friends w Steve does help. I also heard a comment that a friend who did a national show was over conditioned and that's why he didn't place as high. How ridiculous is that comment? Too over conditioned for a bodybuilding show. These bad placings are getting as annoying as corrupt politicians. Plus, competitors, stop w the freaking bitch tits. Do something about it!!!! How masculine can you be with breasts at the end of your chest???

    i THINK ronnie rockel looked a little immature.He was just pissing everyone off.He should've had points taken off for acting unprofessional!!

    Branch didn't seem to be taking it too hard until Rockel nearly pushed him off stage. Even then, I don't think he lost his temper nearly as bad as he could of. He kept his professionalism, and I bet they buried the hatchet back stage.

    Branch is on top of the world now, so of course people on the forums are gonna hate on him. I'm sure he'll do all of his talking on the stage.
