I believe Ronnie will take it but it's hard to make predictions based off current pics since it seems many look better a week out than at the show.

I think ronnie will win again too. Overall Mass is what seems to be in and he's got that.
Why do you think that they look better a week out?
Do you have any pics?

I think Ronnie will end up winning, but I'd love to see Jay take this one home.Originally Posted by somewhatgifted

im not a fan of cutler i dont think he looks good enough to be Mr. O. There are other guys that look better than him IMO. I havent seen Coleman but Im sure he is still going to be a MONSTER.

Not all of those guys are competing this year, that just shows who is eligible to compete in the O this year. For example, Phil Heath qualified to compete this year, but he's taking some time off and skipping the O this year.

Im looking forward to seeing Lee Priest, Victor Martinez, Dexter Jackson, Bautista, and of course the reigning mr. O.

sorry to burst your bubble but I don't think lee will be competing due to the fact that he was suspended for competing in another organization. Sucks cause he probably my favorite bb.

I second that. Dex has been in the top for a while now and I would love to see Ronnie overthrown. I guess it depends on what they are looking for this year.Originally Posted by RenegadeRows

Plus, a close buddy of mine has met Jay on a few different occassions and said he's a total ****. And my buddy is really one of the nicest people I've ever came across. For me, it really takes a lot away from these guys when they are @ssholes.

James looks like he could place high but his midsection looks a lil outta wack. Everything else looks massive enough to compete with RC.
Branch wont make top five. He looks awesome tho not full enough. Maybe too vascular..
Cutler i never really liked. He just doesnt really please the eye to me he is big and has alot of development but aesthetically he has nothing. JMO. I like Ronnie of course but would like to see victor, dex, dennis, gunther take it.

It almost looks like jay is too even i mean all the greats have a signature body part, the coup de gras, and jay looks tremendous but has no trump card.

james ALWAYS looks amazing 2 weeks out but can never nail it come show time .. at least thus far
i'm just not a jay cutler fan

What do you think of Victor Martinez? Ronnie thinks he will take over the throne in the future and have a few years or reign.
I heard Gunter looks great, probably his best ever.
I guess we just have to see what happens. I will be stunned needless to say if someone dethrones the champ.
09-29-2006, 05:43 AM
I agree. Nothing really stands out, he is big and all but what can someone admire from him that others dont have? His triceps look better than most if my memory serves me right. I would be shocked if he wins it. I guess im Cutler hating...Originally Posted by somewhatgifted

I forgot to add, somewhatgifted and whoever else, what is Ronnie's signature body part? I always liked the look of his arms and his chest is always shredded.

I think ronnies best body parts are his back and his legs, he brought new dimensions and expectatinos to the stage, i mean his arms, chest, shoulders are all really awesome too his only problem has been consistently his waist either keepin it tight and small or simply that he doesnt have asthetically nice abs.
09-29-2006, 09:44 PM
My top five (in no order except ronnie winning again)
Ronnie, Jay, Badell, Dex, ..... and, going out on a limb, branch warren.
