Some say Ronnie was the greatest Mr. O, but in my book Haney was the best EVER!!!  He simmply dominated every year (except 1990).  He defeated Sergio, Samir, Yates, Ray, Labrada, Robinson, Strydom, just to name a few.

haney wasn't monumentally bigger than anyone else, but the fact remains that he's pretty much the only guy that both the ironagers and the current crop can agree was incredible. he had the freakish taper and proportions (aside from lagging arms) to make the modern crew happy, but the tight waist and posing to satisfy the older guys.

i never saw it in haney. i feel he is vastly overrated.

still each to his own, i don't see it in jay either barring 2001 he has looked smooth in every comp he entered, and the lack of veins is shocking.

ronnie is king  Cool

Haney took advantage of being the best in the era he competed and that is all he could do, be the best of his time. I met Lee a few times and even trained back with him at the original "Animal Kingdom" in Atlanta. One of the nicest bodybuilders and people I have ever met.

We finished back with shrugs with the bar behind not in front. His advice, go light and let the bar hang for 3 seconds. The growth happens on the down not on the up for traps. we never went over 135.

Great guy, awesome person....respect.

Anybody not impressed by Lee never saw him in contest shape in person. I was at Gold's Venice and saw Gary Strydom doing a photoshhot for FLEX a couple of days after the '88 Olympia. I remember being very impressed by Gary's size and conditioning. That is until Lee walked in a little while later.

A little while later Lee walked in to do a shoot of his own. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with him. I'll admit to being less than impressed with Lee in magazines. And as I told him, pictures didn't do him justice. And they didn't. The thickness and density of Lee in contest shape blew me away. You could hide a quarter in the cleft between his pecs. And his lats were so thick they were U shaped. From the side his front to back thickness was amazing, as was his muscle density. His accolades were well deserved in my opinion.

On top of that, he was the nicest, most humble guy you'd ever want to meet. A great representative to his sport. And he signed my lifting belt as well.

i dont know why so many think haney was great. he was ok at best. ive met him several times years ago. he was not a very nice person so i dont know why people always say he was. his body was ok. lacking alot. but weiders needed a black mr olympia for political reasons. ( and to make money too) every generation thinks that their generation was the best. arnold and sergio were truely the only ones that were way ahead of their time. even today their bodies are far far better then anything that came after them . the 70s had the best bodies. but if you grew up with what modern bodybuilding you will think todays are best. lol. bunch of bloated pregnant bald headed goof balls. they all look the exact same.
