How about being banned for life from the INBA for multiple violations (in 2010), but appearing on the cover of and being featured in the latest Beverly International magazine as a natural pro bodybuilder?

That's very frustrating to natural guys out there! It does suck that someone reaps the rewards for their dishonesty. I try to convince myself that they know what they've done and for them to live that lie is on THEIR shoulders (or lats, or legs!). I have pretty much given up on any magazine shoots, or other modeling stuff because I feel like most of them are using SOMEthing to improve their physique, after all, the readers/mags/editors don't really care how they got to look like that, only that they look like that.
Take heart in knowing that we natural guys know the truth and take pride in knowing that you ARE natural. After all, WHY are you natural, and what are you trying to accomplish? The deeper cause is more important than the superficial magazine covers, despite what they try to sell you (that this guy is natural).
Realize though that I'm not saying this is ok, it DOES really annoy me too, but not as much as it used to. I know I'm natural and feel I've done a good job transforming myself. :0)

I do believe that many of the natural pros are truly drug-free. They have excellent genetics for muscle-building, train super-hard, use whatever supplements they can use legally, keep a clean diet, and are very, very dedicated to the whole endeavor. I really think that genetics is the primary limiting factor for all of us, and that most of us do not have the genes to become pros -- period.

all you can do is worry about yourself in the long run and you know where your at and what you have done to strive to be the best YOU! Some people just don't have the guilt about anything they do, and what a great thing you beat some guy who was natty, tough when you are using something and really just so hypocratic to be one striving for the natural healthy body.

I totally agree genetics has a huge role here. And I'm certainly not implying most pros "use" AT ALL. I don't want to take away from their hard work and dedication. I KNOW what it takes. I'm just putting it out there for discussion I guess. Sometimes I just wonder...

Well, I think your post was sensible -- I don't think you implied that all the pros are drug-users, even if some *are.* Another guy that comes to mind is Cleveland Thomas. He may be natural now (and he's winning everything) but Rich Fitter made clear that he was banned from the WNBF a number of years ago for failing a test. (It was made public on NaturalBodybuildingRadio.com)

EDIT: I changed the name from Clarence to Cleveland, since I don't what to incriminate Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court -- I don't think he's much into bodybuiding anyway. :-)

I lost the overall in a pro qualifier to a guy that tested positive. I was called 2 weeks after the show and awarded the overall. He stole my limelight, accepted my trophy, and took all the overall photos.
Never understand these guys.

Oh well...
