This article is a response piece; this article will be dedicated to responding to forums in regard to the being published “Swift Injustice” the Craig Titus story. The operative word here is response. It’s very important to point out this article is not an attack on those who choose to post false and offensive comments about me and my character, I Am simply responding to those demeaning messages. That being said let me take this opportunity to clear up some lies and share my thoughts about those who harbor so much disdain and malice towards me and apparently the author as well.

I feel like here we go again it’s always the same ole douche bags hiding behind their computer screens running their mouths and talking smack. Its constant comments. I find it funny that individuals such as Bob Chicarello, Ron Harris, Shawn Ray and as of late Noel Fuller have such a inherent desire to run me down on or any other forum available to them. Incidentally, I’m not entirely sure who Noel Fuller is but I’ll get to him in a moment. In reality I find most these remarks to be entertaining and utterly hilarious just like the clowns who post them. The mere mention of my name is enough to illicit dozens of vile and angry comments which can only be a result of long standing feelings of intimidation. Funny how a computer screen and keyboard transforms pussies into warriors. At the same time I must admit I do understand these types of people. You see, by targeting me with their mean spirited and derogatory judgments it makes them feel better about themselves. Sadly, this is the norm within the bodybuilding and fitness community. People like Bob Chicarello, Ron Harris and Shawn Ray, we’ll refer to them as “the mean girls” feel so overwhelmingly inadequate with themselves as men, they find it necessary to project an image of good character simultaneously putting down others. Imagine how wonderful and satisfied “the mean girls” must of felt the moment they learned of my arrest. They must have rejoiced and celebrated with immense joy! It doesn’t matter that the book “Swift Injustice” proves the prosecution withheld evidence, that perjury was committed, that the judge was involved with the orchestration of a fake murder for hire plot, bribery took place and forensic and physical evidence was covered up in an effort to manipulate the end result. To Bob Chicarello, Ron Harris and Shawn Ray the information within this book has no bearing on their opinion. These “mean girls” want so badly for me to be guilty, it doesn’t matter what “Swift Injustice” uncovers. You have to realize it doesn’t matter what the book says or what information it exposes, they relish in the idea of my incarceration, it makes them feel better about themselves. At the same time I can see where some people may be inclined to think I am capable of a violent crime. I’m full aware of my track record with the long list of men I’ve smacked in the mouth or quite frankly knocked out following some ill words. So I get it. But if you were my friend and truly knew me, then you know without a shadow of a doubt I am not capable of hurting a woman, period! But I do have to admit I understand why some people choose to believe I’m guilty. For example… if Bob Chicharello’s wife told me he enjoyed wearing his Captain America outfit while being pounded out doggy style with her strap on, I would have to believe that. I mean, I wouldn’t know if this information is true or not? But knowing Bob, I immediately would have to assume it’s true and he loves being put on all four like a bitch. You see, Bob strikes me as that type. Not that there’s anything wrong with having homosexual desires, “chick” simply gives me the impression he’s epitome of the bitch in the bedroom. You go Bob, with your Captain America suit wearing ass!! And Ron Harris for example… I was to by a reliable source Ron enjoys hitting mandatory poses in the mirror while totally nude and covered in baby oil. During these posing sessions he masturbates with ferocious intent while screaming “I want to be a IFBB pro so bad!!” my source, we’ll call him “Gerald” for the sake of remaining anonymous, tells me Harris literally performs these “posing sessions” for hours ending in total exhaustion with Ron curled up on the floor whimpering “I can be a pro, I can be a pro, I can be a pro.” Now I don’t know if this information is true or not? But knowing Ron Harris and I certainly do, I would have to believe this incredibly salacious story. And then you have Shawn Ray. Shawn is the quintessential example, the absolute personification and embodiment of a man bitch, a “mitch” if you will. Although he’s become a bit passive aggressive with his post over the years, he’s definitely made plenty of hurtful, hateful and disrespectful statements in the past both online and in print. Let me give you a few examples of things I would have to believe about Shawn Ray, simply because I have known this “mitch” for years. For example… if someone was to say Shawn welcomed Drug Enforcement agents into his home and answered questions for four hours in regards to steroids… followed by me and five other IFBB pro’s being served federal subpoenas at our hotel rooms during the Arnold Classic weekend, I believe this information because by Shawn’s own admission, that story is actually true, we were literally served federal subpoenas at our hotel rooms while competing in the 2002 Arnold Classic!! But hey, maybe Shawn’s question and answer session with the feds had nothing to do with six IFBB pro’s being forced to testify in front of a grand jury in regard to our steroid use? I don’t know? But knowing Shawn Ray, and I do, I would have to believe he presented a plethora of information even providing the date of the Arnold Classic and the very best time to serve us those subpoena’s in our hotel rooms. Yep, that’s Shawn, good ole mister “strength & honor” himself. However I do have to be more understanding with Ray’s slimy ways. I’m forced to be sympathetic toward Shawn Ray. From what I’ve been told by Las Vegas finest strippers, Shawn suffers from a rare disorder called “micro penis.” Again, I’m not sure if this “micro penis” allegation holds any validity, but judging by the appearance of Ray in his posing trunks, it appears to be true. Ray’s “micro penis” would certainly account for his ways over the years… Ray’s ways if you will, Shawn’s disorder would explain his feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and presents a clear explanation as to why he loves my fall from grace so much. The point is, I do understand how some people may believe I’m guilty of a violent crime, the same way most people may believe the stories I have presented to you about Bob, Ron and Shawn… “The mean girls.” But if a book was to be published presenting factual information, evidence and testimony that proved these stories about “the mean girls” were in fact lies or grosse exaggerations and held no validity; I would read the book and then make an unbiased determination regardless of my disdain for these individuals. Unlike Bob Chicherello and Ron Harris, I certainly wouldn’t attack the author of the book simply because she didn’t agree with their opinions, epically if the authors only objective is to expose the truth and the evidence that supports her claims. Now let me get to the task at hand. I will now respond to the tread “Craig Titus book in the works” at forum. Does anyone know who Noel Fuller is? I can’t say with 100% certainty I have ever met Noel Fuller, but I can say I do not remember him and undoubtedly my run in with him at his Gold’s Gym in Huntington Beach was not a memorable one. Whatever run in means? Noel claims I threatened to come down to his gym and kick his ass… apparently because the thought Tom Princes hamstrings looked superior then mine. Really Noel?!?! Yeah that’s what happened. You made me so angry because you favored another competitor’s physique? Come on Noel, that’s the best you could come up with? Fuller states that I somehow found out he was practicing MMA training and showed up at his Gold’s Gym wanting to be friends. LMFAO!!! That’s a fairly audacious statement, extremely inaccurate in my opinion but then again I seriously don’t remember. I do however remember quite clearly what happened to the last MMA fighter who decided to invade my personal space and run his mouth. It took place in the parking lot at the 2001 California State BB Championship. Long story short, he got slapped in the mouth followed by a swift and well placed kick to his balls… plain and simple. Hey Noels, sounds to me like your one of those guys who stands in front of the mirror and say “you talking to me?” Again I don’t remember, but if I told Noel Fuller I was coming down to his gym to have some words, I would’ve slapped the MMA taste right out of his mouth! Keep the stories coming mister “MMA”, you got a hell of an imagination! LOL!!! Then we have Ron Harris and his incredibly insightful post. Honestly Ron’s comments left me a little confused? Confused in that I had no idea he held on to so much animosity towards me. If memory serves me correctly, Harris has interviewed me many times over the years for various bodybuilding publications, always being very friendly and professional. It wasn’t until he wrote an unfavorable article for MD magazine in regard to one of many after parties that left with ill feelings towards one another. The unfortunate article forced me to ban him from any future Emperor Entertainment events. I had no idea he was so angry and festered so much hatred toward me, that’s until now. Ron attended the official Olympia after party held at The House of Blues along with half a dozen other reporters, photographers and professional bodybuilders involved with the party. Harris was there representing MD magazine for the purpose of writing a piece to highlight the event and promote future Emperior Ent. After parties… or at least that’s what I thought. Much to my surprise, Ron’s write-up wasn’t at all flattering. In fact it was salacious, smutty, grossly exaggerated and downright detrimental to any future events. In the fictional article Ron points out how a girl had been sexually assaulted on the dance floor. Really Ron!?! Didn’t you mean an adult woman was getting felt up by her adult boyfriend, in an adult night club? Isn’t that a little more accurate? And like I have said before, if a girl was actually being sexually assaulted, why didn’t you help her? Why didn’t you get the security staff? And why would you write about the assault rather than help? Because it did not happen. No other writers or photographers attending the party witnessed couples openly having sex, or abusing narcotics or girls being sexually assaulted. I have no doubt you saw one couple, a couple having sex on a “little couch in a recessed area within the main floor,” as you stated. You and I both know your article was much more vulgar then simply pointing out two adults were having intercourse at a party. That happens all the time, in night clubs all over the world, but you made it sensational and salacious. Anyway, I called you a liar, I accused you of writing a crude, sleazy, trashy and damaging article full of bullshit, gross exaggerations and lies. You were banned from my parties and now you chose to assume the worst. You want me to be guilty of my charges and now you bash me at Judging by how immensely popular and lucrative my after parties became, I should’ve thanked you for your Emperor Entertainment event article…. So thank you. It was sensational. Then we have Bob Chicarello or “chick” for short. Me, I don’t call him chick for short, I call him chick because he’s a bitch! I truly believe chick lives in a fantasy world surrounded by superheroes and he’s Captain America. His recollections of events are cloudy at best and obviously self-serving. I’ve discussed the following experiences with chick before, but for the sake of this article, let me shed some much needed light on Bobbie’s rendition. “Chick” writes “Craig was talking shit on and I was dishing it right back… Titus got pissed and said we would settle it at the USA in Vegas.” No no no Bobbie! You drew a disrespectful picture of me that was later published in Flex Magazine… that’s what caused my malice towards you. Chick writes “I walked in the lobby, made a beeline right to Craig, we stepped outside, and Craig backed down in record time.” LMFAO!! Oh chick, you are on delusional little man. My exact words to you that day in Las Vegas were “if you ever disrespect me again, we’re going to have a problem.” You replied “I didn’t mean anything by it, I was just fucking around.” For the record, my ex Kelly Ryan made me a promise I wouldn’t smack you in the mouth and cause a scene at the USA’s. That’s the only reason you weren’t bitch slapped. We never had an issue again…you know. even has IFBB Pro Evan Centopani posting messages about me. I have actually read many of Evan’s articles finding them very informative and well written. I would think a man as intelligent as Evan would be much more hesitant to believe some of the garbage being posted on MD’s forum. I’ll refrain on making any comments directed towards Evan Centopani with the hope he’s simply a victim of the Craig Titus is guilty band wagon.

Muscular Development Forums:

Ron Harris: The fact is that she (the author) did not go into this as an impartial reporter, she went in with the idea that Craig had been horribly wronged and took it from there.
Titus: Not t rue. Fact is, the author refrained from forming any opinion in regard to my charges until she examined all the evidence, including evidence that was hidden and suppressed by the prosecution and detectives. She took on this project because she felt the facts presented by the state did not add up and something was wrong! She has been working on this book for three years!
Pitbull9: Bro he tried to get in a cage with Phil Baroni back then. Baroni would’ve beaten the ever loving shit out of him.

Titus: Yes, that’s absolutely true. Baroni was just another in a long list talking shit in the magazines. We had two opportunities to square up, both times he chose not to. I attempted to set up a fight in the cape using the “King of the Cage” federation… he declined. Said his contract would not allow it, whatever!

Chick: Craig basically asked Melvin Anthony’s girlfriend if she wanted to take part in a threesome with him and Kelly, to which Bebee told Melvin, who confronted Craig, Titus puled the “I was just joking card.”

Titus: Hilarious! First off, Bebee and Melvin were long broken up when our conversation took place. Truth is, Bebee wanted me to put together her diet and nutrition program for an upcoming show because she was no longer speaking to Melvin. There was in fact some flirting going on but never a mention of a threesome. Months later Melvin was told, he confronted me in Gold’s gym in Venice, I felt threatened and most regrettably knocked Melvin out cold. Funny how chick tells his stories.

Rabbit Racer: I always wonder how guys like Chris Cormier, Craig Titus and Victor Martinez can party on ecstasy, cocaine and smoke a ton of weed yet be successful on stage?
Titus: Steroids + HGH and genetics, that’s how! Some people can party, some cannot. Look at chick for example, he’s always lived a clean drug free life and he was still a below average bodybuilder. Some might say Bob’s physique was horrible but being an incredible nut sack rider took him a long way.
Shawn Ray: He got 22-66 years. Strength &Honor!

Titus: It’s 21-55 years you little bitch! The only thing you honor is your punk ass!

Noel Fuller: Tracy, does the book touch upon all the figure girls this model of society beat the shit out of?

Titus: Does that make you feel good about yourself Noel? Are you secretly beating up your girlfriend there buddy? I for one have never put my hands on any woman I have dated… NEVER. Funny thing is, you wouldn’t be posting comments like this if I were free, we both know that, don’t we.

The MD forum goes on and on with discussion, theories and opinions in regard to myself, the book and even attacks on the author Tracy Mitchell. Most of it I laughed at, some content I was disgusted with but sadly I wasn’t shocked in least. The best part is these idiots posting messages, reveal the fact they’re complete fools and don’t even know it. LMFAO!
