    Powerlifting was on ESPN once..in like 96. Thing is.. jump rope is more entertaining to watch than powerlifting. Its sad but true and its the reason we'll most likely never see Powerlifters on mainstream tv. Along with all the different feds, jacked up gear, different rules, etc...

    Other than the freak factor (Jeez look at that guy!!! He's a monster), there isn't a lot about powerlifting that appeals to most people. At least with strongman they have different, interesting events to keep the viewers entertained.

    Yeah, I imagine unless you were a fan that followed it, PL would be extremely boring to watch. Also, seeing someone squatting 1000lbs, something most people cant even fathom has a lot less visual impact than most strongman comps using huge stones or deadlifting a car or something.

    I'm not saying PL'ing is the most entertaining thing in the world but with some changes it COULD be entertaining to the general public. Now do I know what they are or how to implement them? No I don't, but I think it is possible.
