    I actually like the NPC national level best. More contests, more competitors and it's always exciting to see how the competitors change throughout their careers in the NPC and who wins their procard. I really don't follow the IFBB very closely at all.

    I agree with the post above. There are a lot more NPC competitions and the competitors are all hungry and bring it every time to try and win their pro card.

    NPC = NBA
    IFBB = All Stars

    NPC you'll see the good guys compete to see who's best. IFBB you'll see the best of the best, and there is not a vast difference between them all, so you're more rooting for this 'team' or that supersta!

    NPC = Amateur- To become eligable to compete for Pay
    IFBB = Pro's- Compete for PAY

    That's kind of what I thought when I read this thread. How can you really compare them?

    Yea, I love to compete, but who the hell would not want to compete as a pro?

    The question was who do you prefer to watch and follow? Not who do you want to compete with?

    Clearly if you're a Bodybuilding "Fan" it doesn't matter.
    That said, for every Professional you'll find a Bodybuilder who was once an Amateur.

    It's like asking if you like the major leagues or the minor leagues more. Sure you love all baseball but which one do you like more?

    Obviously watching Athletes compete who are considered the "Best in the World" is the end all beat all!
    However, there s something to be said about the Numbers of Athletes and Stories they have on their journey's to the Pro's that interests many of us.
    While following the careers of Amateurs can be fun, once they are Pro's and have graduated there is a satisfaction of supporting them from the "Cheap Seats" one derives as they stand next to accomplished/seasoned Pro's that you get by comparision to no name amateurs finding their way through the system!

    For me its NPC because of more variety in talent and fresh faces.

    Too often see the same people end up on stage at the big IFBB shows.

    I know they're established superstars and enjoy seeing a lot of them but
    when its just them battling with each other all time, it tends to get boring.

    If your a fan of the sport you would love them both to me it’s like NCAA football and the NFL . In the NCAA you see the athlete year after year improve to make it to that next level and the talent level is spread out from state to state . In the NFL you have the best of the best competing at the highest level . I also use football to compare the sport to because like football there are enough show’s to keep you wanting more but not to many that you get bored until playoff time I.E baseball, basketball, hockey

    But football , baseball , etc are team sports. Bodybuilding is not.

    So I'm not understanding how you're relating it to one another.

    Plus for me , I like the NFL more because things get settled on the field.

    Not by voters and computers like the NCAA.

    He's not comparing the sports. He's comparing following a sport....any sport....to following bbing.

    I know , with those sports , fans usually follow the teams, not so much the individuals.
