    This is Soooo sad. He is the only online fitness guru who doesn't do it for the money. Much respect and love to Scooby.
    I will miss his youtube videos. I thank this man for being a constant support.

    Wow...that is horrible. What the heck did people attack his family for? That he has to move...it much have been really bad.


    His new web site will be $5-30/mo
    http://www.fit40andover.com/


    I wish that he would leave his videos up but that is of course his decision to take them down.

    Scooby posted on RJ when he first started to make the youtube clips.

    Wow saddened to hear the personal attacks. Scooby has been a household name among my generation, it's heartbreaking to hear the decision. May your next project Scooby be successful, you've done so much already. Thank you

    I liked Scooby, but a lot of what he said in his videos has been disproven. That scumbag Ian McCarthy made a youtube video bashing him and the Hodge Twins so Scooby probably got a lot of hate because of that. He was one of the few guys on youtube that actually genuinely cared about the health aspect of fitness and not just getting big.

    But his videos are from his youtube channel and he said that he will shut that down.

    I think that it is even worse that he feels the need to move. That is just sickening!

    This is both sad and disappointing. Scooby was clearly invested in this cause for all the right reasons; people on YouTube need to grow up. He will definitely be missed. I love his final exhortation to take someone under your wing.

    Was Scooby gay? I read somewhere he was but I'm shocked because I thought he had a wife.

    Very sad to think he and his family had some major issues though his work. We can only wish him well and visit his website...

    I think he is. Why else would he post on RealJock?

    I always thought those were just videos he postd and not really post any comments. Maybe it's just my imagination but I seemed to recall hejust married some really attractive young babe recently.

    If he is gay that explains his fascination with bodybuilding after 40 YO.

    "I’m a gay African American Jew and if you can show me how any of those things relate to fitness I will gladly answer.”

    Well, its only partially a joke because two out of the three are true"

    Guess he got tired of the internet drama. Totally understandable. He should continue to create videos, but drop the social aspect of his website. Disable the forums, disable blog comments, and disable YouTube comments. Most bloggers and content creators are doing the same. Create content, let visitors post the links/articles on Facebook and other social networking sites, and let the discussion/drama occur over there. I hope he somehow reads this and takes my advice. It works.

    That's a shame. His videos were some of my favorites when I first started lifting.

    pf0081 saidI'm confused. Why was his family attacked and why was he bashed online? And his old videos will still be available?


    I'm not sure about the alleged attack on his family.

    The online bashing is explained in the link in monstapex's post. The gist is that he ran an online forum, had a moderator, when the moderator started posting anti-gay content the moderator was demoted but not banned, and then online drama ensued. Part of the online drama was a demand that the former moderator be banned or the site would be rendered inoperable by hackers.

    As for the old videos it's like MadeInMich says, they will be archived and accessed on the site http://scoobysworkshop.com.

    Are you sure the antithetical content only involved his being gay?

    On review, it looks like there may have also been comments that were racist and anti-Semetic in nature.

    I have never heard of him, but it is sad he is shutting down.

    I agree he should just shut down the comments, or maybe allow an "ignore" member option. It has been the reason why I have stayed on RJ. icon_cool.gif

    Note from Scooby on this FB page:


    Since the bulletin board on fit40andover is private I am reposting this answer to a question because its important. Here it is
    ==================================
    People misinterpreted what I meant by "shutting down my YouTube" channel. No surprise that I didn't make that quite clear because that video was made under extreme duress as you might imagine. I have NO intention of removing those existing Scooby1961 videos. They are an extremely important and integral part of scoobysworkshop.com. I am still passionate about helping people get in shape for free and scoobysworkshop.com is the vehicle by which I will accomplish that. By "Shutting down" I meant that I would not longer doing my weekly videos there and that I would no longer be answering everyone's questions there like I used to. Emotionally, that feels like shutting down which is why I used that term. Although my new focus is on fitness over 40, 80% of the stuff is the same and I have no desire to re-invent the wheel. I need the content and videos of scoobysworkshop as my "fitness core of knowledge" that I can link to from fit40andover. My members will be giving me ideas for new content and videos. The content that is only of interest to those over 40 will go on fit40andover. Content that is of interest to anyone regardless of age will go on scoobysworkshop. Does that make sense?
