Haney wasn't that special for his time - he got lucky because he was only up against the little guys like Labrada, Gaspari, and Shawn (before he improved). Strydom et al buggered off to the WBF and they were never really a threat.

If you're looking for physiques ahead of their time, think Arnold and no-one else.

Oh brother.  ::)

Looks like I'm upsetting every gimmick account holder this evening.

Give me one good example of how Haney was ahead of his time. Just one.

I saw Lee Haney competing several times. At only 1 of his Mr. Olympia wins de didn`t deserve the title
(1990 Chicago). All other Mr. O Contest he won clearly....

And form the mid 80`s to the early 90`s Lee Haney was without a doubt the "lion of the animal kingdom..."

Glad to see you on the Board, Squad. Was wondering when you'd make it over here ... btw, ever hear of a Bodybuilder by the name of Alex Federov ? How about Frank Zane ? ;)

The reason I brought up those 2 Names is because those are the 2 Names usually brought up in a conversation when the words, " Overrated Bodybuilder " are tossed around ... not Haney. Funny that you think a Man who Won 8 Sandows was " overrrated ". :-\

i definitely have to agree with squadfather on this one. i never saw what was so great about lee haney. sergio olivia absolutely crushes him in almost every single pose. so does dorain, ronnie, and jay would beat him as well.

Ok. So let me get this straight ... so I understand correctly. You agree ( with Squadfather ) that Haney was the most " overrated Bodybuilder EVER " ... please take notice that Squadfather used the Word " ever ". Now ... taking careful consideration of what I just said ... do you still agree with Squadfather and his original statement regarding Haney ?

Every decade has there best Bodybuilders..."Steve Reeves", "John Grimek","Bill Pearl", "Reg Park", "Larry Scott", "Sergio Oliva", "Arnold Schwarzenegger", "Lee Haney", "Dorian Yates", "Ron Coleman",
and i would never say that one of these was totally overrated. All these are still great legends....

who cares what squatfatter thinks. he is nota bodybuilder and he has never competed in a bodybuilding contest and and has been to even fewer...so his opinion still only matters when we need advise on what JUNK food to eat on our cheat day for the month.  :)~

Not to defend Squad, but that logic is completely fouled.  Can you cook a 5 star meal at 5 star restaurant?  Can you design the next supercar from Ferrari?  Just because you can't do those things, does that mean you can't comment on them?  Of course not.  If I went to a 5 star restaurant and thought the food was shit, just because I'm not a chef does that mean my opinion is automatically invalidated?  No.  But by your logic because Squad and 98% of the people on this board have not competed in BB comps their opinions are somehow invalid?

Some really sound logic there bub =)

Solid point, Emmortal ... attack the Opinion if you want, but never the man. At least not on this Board.  ;)

haney was the man when I got into BB back in the day, I understand why he won the shows he won cause he was so much bigger than everyone else, I'd say he was untouchable 84-86, 87 he was a little off but Gaspari came in waaay to big and his waist was huge, Christian was off and Labrada was just coming into his own.  88 was a close call, Gaspari, Demay, Labrada and a few other guys were great....Christian skipped that year and he was awsome in the earlier shows...

89, I'd have given it to Labrada, he was so f'n good it was shocking, totally ripped, detailed...no missing bodyparts, only problem was he was short and I don't think that should matter that much.  90 Haney got a total gift, Labrada beat him and he didn't even nail it IMO.  Christian and Ray were awsome, either could have been 1st or 2nd, labrada 3rd and Haney at best 4th....BUT, Benfatto looked incredible that year.

91 haney won hands down but he wouldn't have beaten dorian in 92.

just my 0.02
