The 1980 Mr. Olympia is definitely the most debated contest ever. I just saw a video by Norm Komich recently and I can understand why it was so controversial. Norm was at the show and he filmed it from the balcony using his video camera. Arnold's legs were really down in size and there were a lot of guys who were in top shape. Zane, Mentzer, Coe, Walker, Callendar and Dickerson were all peaked and ripped. The fact that Arnold didn't let anyone know he was competing and he also had friends on the judging panel (Reg Park, Albert Busek, Mits) created a lot of resentment from all the top competitors. Looking at it from Norm's video (and not pictures, which don't always tell the story), you can see the big weakness in Arnold's legs. Although he still looked great for the limited amount of time training for the show, a lot of the audience and all the other competitors didn't feel like he deserved the victory because he had a glaring weak point (just like Franco did one year later). Like Zane said after the contest, when you have had a layoff that long and you only train for a couple months, the strong bodyparts (Arnold's arms, chest, back) are going to come back quick but his weaker muscle groups (legs, delts) are going to lag behind.
I've seen this video as well. Being shot from the balcony it gives a distorted perspective of how the physiques looked(heads closer to the camera,legs further away etc.).And this affects Arnold the most as he was the tallest competitor. The other videos and pictures taken from behind the judges table give much better perspective.

It's strange at the 80, in many shots arnolds thighs from the side looked great with better hams and separation than before, his traps were really huge and wide and delts looked more rounded. When he was introduced and walked on stage in the comeback/ total rebuild he looks awesome

There is no fooking way that man-hoe butt-slut Dicksuckerson should have been allowed on stage, much less come in second place.  What a waste of drugs,  macaroni-elbowed butt-munching munchkin he was.

Mentzer or Zane deserved 2nd.

Yea and look at them side on, barely any chest visible, arnolds is ridiculous. His arm is also the same width of their torso front to back.

He dwarfs Dickerson and Zane big time.

Again, look at the superior hamstring separation in 80. So while some size was missing, he made up for it with new qualities

At a guess I would say Scott Dosent like the Arse loving queer
And also Dosent like his awful physique

Hence why he thinks he shouldn't of been on stage.
