If they should have, they would have. 

I don't think Arnold had the best Physique in the 1980 Mr Olympia he won because lf his name and was friends with the Judges.

And if you think that was a travesty look what happened the year after. A guy with terrible gyno and one leg won whilst Danny Padilla in near perfect condition got 5th.

Shawn ray? :lol:

Why not Shawn Ray? 12 Olympia consecutive top 5 finishes including 2 second places. That’s quite a feat.

To be fair it's a far more aesthetic physique than Yate's.

Yeah the 1980 Olympia was a total stitch up! The 1981 version doesn't look much better from that photo. 

When I was younger Yates was always my favourite. Now looking back I don't actually like his physique that much, I think I was blinded when I was younger by his size and strength. From an aesthetic point I dont think it flows as well as many of the other competitors from that time. That said those black and white off season photos of him were insane!
