Call me nuts, but I still say Roelly should have won the Olympia or placed second at worst. He didn't have to face some of the guys who placed ahead of him a week later in Italy, but was clearly the best on stage, anyway.

We really need some good comparison shots. I think Hadi looked the best though he wasn't the largest. Roelly was definitely huge.

I would love to see Roelly win an Olympia!

I feel that we're going through another period such as the one from 1979-1984 when there were several winners without two consecutive:

1979 - Frank Zane
1980- Arnold Schwarzenegger
1981 - Franco Columbu
1982 - Chris Dickerson
1983 - Samir Bannout
1984 - Lee Haney

I agree with this.
Next year I think it might go to Flex Lewis if he shows up in shredded, and with his balance and proportions I don't see anyone else beating him: not Curry, Bonac or anyone else.

At this point I think Phil won't comeback, Rhoden said in a recent interview that his main dream since he started bodybuilding was to win the Arnold Classic (he witnessed Ronnie's dominant win in 2001 ASC and was impressed by that), and when he was asked if he will compete at next year's Olympia (if he'll be unbanned) he said "nah...too early to say".
I would say he is pissed off and disgusted by the IFBB's decision so he might never comeback as well.

Hopefuly by 2021 someone as dominant as Haney/Yates/Coleman will show up.

Finally that big bloated gut look is starting to fade away.

I think if Flex Lewis comes back he will win for sure.

^^Right now he's a bit light in the quads and traps, but overall has a great structure. Will be interesting to see his progress over the next couple of years.

He's a great champion and role model. Much better than Phil Heath.
