But that was not the end of my foolishness. And in addition, while we were selling his personal consultations, we would find out that he was not speaking to the guys that had paid for his consults at the scheduled times. Many paying members were getting increasingly disappointed and angry. I told them emphatically that I did not think that Anthony was involved in recreational drug use.
However, his increasingly volatile behavior on the site and his attacks and tirades on the Mods and members in combination with what we knew had happened to the Steroid. This made Anthony enraged.
We knew that we could not have him around anymore and so the Admins decided to suspend his account on the forums. I was really sad about the decision.
I had always liked Anthony and was glad to help give him his start. I also thought he showed so much promise. And they intended to sue me if they needed to in order to get the RoidStore. And so, this past winter, we got served with a lawsuit. In March, EliteFitness. Actually, you can read the whole thing if you google it as it has been posted online. One of those authors is a guy who writes as Dino Strong and who wrote what many of our members consider to be the best guide to anabolic steroid cycling ever written.
The title of the book is Anabolic Gameplan. Dino Strong writes a book and EliteFitness. Dino himself is not even named in the lawsuit. And get this, they have not yet told us in writing what they allege was copied. To make matters worse, after they filed the lawsuit, they sent demand letters to all of our ISPs threatening them that they would be sued too if the entire EliteFitness. And for forty panic inducing minutes on February 29th, they actually succeeded in having our entire site shutdown until our lawyer explained things to our ISP.
Needless to say, I was furious when we got served with a frivolous lawsuit. So, I called my attorney and told her to get ready to fight. Fortunately, my lawyer talked some sense into me. Why propose something so generous? In exchange, both Brian and Anthony would have to agree to drop their lawsuit and agree not to sue us again over anything else that had happened in the past. Finally, my lawyer learned from theirs what they really wanted.
What they really wanted was advertising on EliteFitness. Essentially, they wanted to plaster RoidStore. Well, I definitely was not going to make that same mistake again! They would agree to suspend their lawsuit and work with our sales team, to come up with an advertising package that would meet their needs and at the same time not be abusive to our site and our members like their RoidStore ad campaign had been. If an ad package could not be worked out with them, then they would get to start their lawsuit up again.
Believe me, I HATED the idea of paying those losers anything, especially since I did not write the e-book in question, since Anthony had received a copy before it went on sale, and since no one believes that any significant copying ever took place at all. But, the two of them think they have me over a barrel and are determined to extort as much money and advertising as they possibly can. And my willingness to try and settle with them for the sake of saving time and money, has been misconstrued as weakness.
The mere thought of their winning the lawsuit seems to have ignited a deluded power play fantasy where they believe I will be unable to afford my lawyers and my site would somehow be turned over to them.
I have just hired a team of lawyers in Texas and I have resolved to spend whatever it takes to defend our site and our members. To add insult to injury, according to my friend Bill Llewellyn, who authors the Anabolics series that he updates every year, Anthony and Brian plagiarized his work extensively when they wrote their book Anabolic Steroids Ultimate Research Guide that they claim Dino infringed.
And Bill has agreed to testify on our behalf. Now, we need help. And regardless of what you may read elsewhere, I want all our members to know that EliteFitness.

Is this even a legit source? Since I was a boy I was a huge fan of the Rocky movies and always wanted to make my own films. Sandow is an interesting and untold story inspired by two real world athletes, Launceston Elliot the first British Olympic Champion and his trainer Eugen Sandow. Sandow is a fascinating and untold story, of a cultural icon who everyone wanted a piece of,it is an important film which needs backers to bring it to the screen. There are not many films made about sports nowadays but in particular there are not many films about how sports have developed showing the beginnings of professional bodybuilding and Olympic athletes combined with a period setting; the film deals with universal themes- I believe there is a Sandow in everyone who is inspired to work to build something larger than themselves; this I believe is what makes Sandow a most unique project.
