    i gotta agree here. the poll has vet favs but dex lacks size to jay, coleman is too old (still awesome but don't think he's got it) and jay is too big in the waist for all the new competition (he won't give up enough size to correct it imo)

    heath 3rd. vic and kai are hard. kai has better glutes and legs but i think vic is more aesthetically pleasing imo. all three will have great conditioning! if vic come 100% i say...

    1 vic
    2 kai
    3 heath

    I also agree Kai, Victor and heath. I mean Jay,Coleman,Dex were in the scene for a long time and I think its time to see more competition than just the same faces.

    C'mon bro. You know how this sport works. The odds are strongly in favor of the former Mr. O's....always has been, plus the Mr. O's have had a year to prepare unlike vic, kai, and heath who have just competed recently.

    You may like vic, kai, and heath for top three, but there is NO WAY the judges place Jay, Dex, and Ronnie at 4th, 5th, and 6th under those guys.

    I like Vic myself, and could see him busting in the top three for sure. Although Kai looked insane at the Arnold, he hasn't shown the consistency as the other top guys and is too much of a coin flip whether or not he'll be on point.

    My 2 cents anyway.

    remember i said vic must be at 100%...and he is the current fav back from his operation!

    i do my friend and you have a valid point! but look here see: past o's also favored size. jay outweighed dex almost 30lbs last year. kai win's arnold...where past arnold winners typically place top 3 at the O!

    heath breaks out top 3 where most start at the bottom and work up! he also grew 16lbs that year...how much this year who knows. conditioning rivaled only by dex. he combines the best traits of all his competition! this guy is only going up the latter.

    i am a dex fan for the record...have been since i started training 8 years ago...long before he was predicted to win an O. i swore god made him is a test tube and his competition swears he gets ripped off potato chips! genetic freak where i only see heath taking his place! jay is my second as he is always humble! true inspiration and amazing spokesperson for the sport! i follow the sport somewhat and give my honest opinion...i am also not going to jock my favorite pro. i just call it like i see it!

    Right on about the shift in favoring sheer mass. Glad the judges finally shifted back towards aesthetics.

    Good point about Heath too....I'm just leary about the newbies who bust out of nowhere. They have no record of consistency, and so many bodybuilders have ups and downs and can't stay consistent. I guess I'm bias towards the vets until they prove that.

    Oh, and whoever said Jay was bloated last year at the Mr. O, take a look at this ab shot LOL. The only reason he didn't take first are the skin folds in his lower back. I am biased though b/c I'm a Jay fan. Like RaginFtrd, I admire his spokesmanship and humble nature. Best role model for the sport IMO.

    good points as well...09 should be exciting with actual competition!

    some days idk who's my fav. dex or jay...i usually say dex cause he was the first bodybuilder that impressed me physique wise. then i started following the jay-ronnie battle and liked jays attitude and dedication after so many runner ups.

    Oh yes, this is the most anticipated Mr. O for me anyway. Serious competition for once.

    Ditto with the Jay/Ronnie battles. Jay remained confident, humble, and politically correct as a runner up....while insecure Ronnie resulted to smack talk. The sport gets enough heat already, we need the Jay mentality.

    Not to get off the topic of the 6 bb your all naming but I would like to share one though. Many years when I started trainning and reading Flex mag my first one had this guy on it and he looked pretty damn solid.

    Yeah. Alexander was someone I thought was really cool. That pose is just badass. Here is the actual Felx I have I think. My ex prolly threw all my Flex stuff away but here it is.

    Great physique so don't get me wrong, but totally lacking striations for a top contender.

    2nd note.... I had high hopes for Chris Cook too ragingftrd, but like I said earlier....many have a quick run and then you wonder where they are? (Kai and Heath could be...or not)

    WTF happened to Chris Cook though, he looked promising at a very young age too.

    i don't think he could handle the financial side of competing at the pro level without a sponsor. i had high hopes for him too.

    Damn, although I disagree with anybody that opposes Jay, I can at least understand the Dex supporter. Ronnie doesn't stand a chance unless he drops 20+ lbs. though! That gives Jay an auto plus on that. Freakish Ronnie Roid bellies are no longer rewarded.

    Where did you see these recent photos/clips? Has he dropped weight? I saw him at the Arnold and agree he looked good, but hard to tell what his gut looked like in street clothes. I've never been a fan b/c of his bloated ab/thigh shot, but If he can drop some lbs. and control that he'll have a run. He won't win though

    Heath, seen the man in person and is immensely impressive off season. Dont be too surprised if the newcomer who took third his first time in the O snatches another top spot or even the title....

    Not doubting you.....Heath is impressive and will have a good show. But, I would be uttlerly shocked if he beats this super tough lineup this year! Cutler, Dex, Coleman, Martinez, Kai.......That's ballsy to say Heath will beat all of these solid contenders. Honestly, I'm pulling for Jay (obviously), but Dex is the guy to beat this year....all hype is focused on him. Plus he has the mental edge of actually being the current Mr. O.

    No doubt the man has his work cut out for him to no end. Coleman is grasping at a goal he knows he's not going to snatch honestly. Jay is going to be working his ass off to reclaim the title and dex im afraid may get sloppy knowing he already won the previous comp... But its a bit too far out to be making real assumptions, when pics come out there will be countless threads full of guessing im sure

    You said it all right there. Nobody has a better work ethic than Jay. He's hungry and wants to go out number 1.

    Not at all... He still has a few more years to go, but his conditioning is not consistent. If he buckles down and comes in top shape, you're all in for a show stopper!

    If he comes in like the 2009 Arnold.....
