    Default If Branch ever wins the Olympia

    I dont know how the BB will recover, even his apologists admit he isnt aesthetically appealing but lets not forget that BB is a pageant

    That's right it's a pageant and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I think Olympia has traditionally been about the biggest bodybuilder but I'm no expert.

    Samir was not the biggest, or Dickerson certainly. Zane was seriously outmuscled by the other top contenders. Oliva lost to Arnold despite being significantly bigger pound for pound.

    by progressively marginalizing itself as an extreme sport in which a continually smaller percentage of the general population is interested. yes it will go on just like that.

    In the late 70's our top show was broadcast on network television sports broadcasts. Even as late as '86 and '87 our shows managed to get on ESPN. Now even our pro BB shows cannot even draw enough of an audience to make money for promoters. We have to package our shows with other pursuits like fitness, physique, bikini, et al to make events financially viable.

    This^^

    It is and always will be about aesthetics, and not about who is the biggest. It is the reason that Arnold won so many, and also the reason that Branch will not see one

    sergio was infinitely more "aesthetic" than arnold.
    arnold knew the mind games and had the connections.
    not saying arnold didn't deserve it, but just comparing physique against physique, sergio had the upperhand.

    The 2001 Mr Olympia was shown on Fox Sports Net if I remember correctly.
    I like women with curves: Sweep, abs and pec/delt tie-in.
