    Shawn used to talk a lot of smack back in his competitive days. He used to slag Dorian off amongst others which obviously won him no fans this side of the Atlantic. Obviously I have never met the man but back when I used to read FLEX () he did come across as a bit of a nob !

    No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    I know that Shawn used to receive regular criticism when he was competing back in the 90's for bad mouthing other competitors and constantly stating how he was gonna win this and win that and wipe the floor with so and so but never actually managed to live up to his claims which earned him the title of being a bit of a joke.

    But I wasn't aware Shawn was even discussed that much in today's bodybuilding circles?

    I think that this thread has probably brought back a few memories:

    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/m_1916599/tm.htm

    Titus gives him constant clog in a decent number of his articles. God knows whether they are accurate criticisms or not though.

    Ah yes ,"page cannot be found " ....remember it like it was yesterday ....


    I remember thinking Shawn was pretty good , and liking him up until Mr O 1995 (I think ? ) when he came fourth - the top three were Dorian , Kevin Levrone & Nasser El Sonbatty

    Reading the interviews ,EVERYONE congratulated Dorian on an undisputable win , Praised Nasser and expressed surprise at his amazing improvement which suddenly brought him into the top of the game , Everyone except Shawn , who moaned ,cried , and whined some more ! - then explained why he had beaten all of them {in his mind !) , and then he threw all his toys out of the pram and threatened to retire

    ....Not the most gracious of losers

    Well whatever is said about him, there's one thing you can't take away from Shawn and that was that he had the most impressive flat top haircut this side of vanilla ice!

    I knew Ray had a poor attitude, but didn't realise he was loathed. He's now an ambassador for the sport and promotes it through camps in other countries, aswell as doing interviews in BBing journalism. So he can't have been hated that much!

    ^^^ Yeah , as much as I thought he was a twat , he still had an admirable physique and deserves respect from the bodybuilding community

    The thing I liked , was everyone knew he was a whiner , and the magazines and all the other athletes used to take his whinings with a pinch of salt accordingly

    I couldn't bring myself to "hate" him , or Gregg Valentino for that matter

    I dont hate anyone in particular no one has done any thing to deserve it IMO, i find gregg valinto quite funny but i understand he has worsened the image that people portray about bodybuilding.

    Shawn Ray has had a bit of feud with Milos Sarcev as well, but i think he has done a lot for the sport, his show was on the other weekend and there was a fair bit of money involved Kai Greene walked away with $31, 000 for Winning the overall and best poser. He has also stumped up his own money for awards.

    Don't really read the bb mags any more, but I went to a seminar he did in Bolton in 1995 and he seemed like a sound bloke and there was no bad things being said about him then. Has something changed? That was some haircut he had back then!
