Rivalry Between Sports
So I saw several of my friends posting this up with angry comments cause they feel insulted by this highly biased infograph.
Now, this post isn’t about explaining scientifically how untrue the statements about bodybuilders in this infograph are. I think that most of you could figure that to build muscle, you need to give your body what it needs and not deprive it. And although strength isn’t the main goal, most bodybuilders are definitely stronger than most people.
Instead, I want to talk about the maturity of the person who created such infograph. Firstly, why the hell did he do it for? I can tell the idiot who created it is pro-strongman. That’s more than ok. I’m not against strongman at all. In fact, I enjoy watching strongman events. BUT, this noob is giving both bodybuilders and strongmen a bad image.
Now, in terms of sports, I may only be into bodybuilding and I may have no idea what exactly an offside is, but I still have respect for athletes of other spots. I don’t insult them that they are not as big and strong as bodybuilders. Why would I? That’d be dumb. It’s like a golfer telling a basketball player “Betcha can’t hit a hole-in-one” or a sprinter telling a gymnast “Betcha can’t run 100m in less than 10 seconds”. They don’t fucking care!
Each sport has its own discipline and required skills. Some need strength. Some need speed. Some need teamwork. Some need physique. Wouldn’t the be boring if we only have one sport?
Thus, I would like to say that all of us should have respect for athletes of other sports and stop this “My sport is better than yours!” nonsense. Rivalry between sports is not needed. Forcing your sport onto others is like forcing your religion onto others. It’s a choice everyone is free to make on their own. Just love the sport you’re in, be proud of it and let others be proud of the sport they’re in. Nuff’ said.
Now like this post if you agree with me. 🙂
