I don't live in a world of "What if's?"
It's that simple.
We all 3 took turns beating each other in head to head competition which made us all better and more Aware of each other's gifts, strengths & weaknesses.
It's a sport of Opinion.
I'm raising my kids not wondering "If" this or if that.
I'm 16 years removed from the stage bro, I look back with admiration and appreciation not with "What if'."

ok well thanks for addressing the question, but with due respect it wasn't a "what" if Question Shawn if was a...in your opinion...question, for most the 1990s I was arguably the best Greco wrestler in my country bar none I haven't competed in over 15 years now but the younger kids (guys in their 20s) ask me frequently how I'd do against the best wrestlers nowadays...and I answer them honestly...in my opinion...it doesn't make it a FACT...it's just my opinion.

You were one of the very best of ANY GENARATION of bodybuilders and you proved it consistently over the 1980s-1990s...that's the reason I asked you YOUR OPINION shawn it's not a crime too say you feel you could beat the best of today personally I think there's a good chance you'd beat MOST top guys nowadays but heaths a tougher closer thing against Phil because regardless of his persona he's pretty complete...and so we're you.

It's not a crime too admit you were good enough too beat the newer generation it's just your opinion.

i'm guessing this is your way of saying phil would beat you guys, because you did say that you would beat flex lewis

If you think Lee is an "Ambassador" for this sport, I certainly won't try to dignify you're question with an answer.

flex would win over 90% vote on any board for being all time best bodybuilding physique on Olympia stage.

Never met anyone else like Shawn. A sociologist, a bodybuilder and also a bodybuildingwriter. Creds to him! Like myself.

Shawn,

One thing I noticed on all the boards and online in general in reference to the Olympia broadcast on Amazon was that people generally enjoyed the feed for a change. What they did not enjoy and this is something that is brought up online every year and nobody who does the broadcast does not seem to pay attention to is that during the personal posing routines, that nobody wants to hear the commentator yapping away because it takes away from the routine we are watching. Like seriously, you and Dan do a great job commentating, but perhaps someone needs to tell Dan specifically to shut the fuck up during the routine. You like to tell it like it is, so appreciate that I am telling it like it is. If you do not believe me, pull up the commentary of people online during the podcast and you will see those comments specifically like crazy.

If we went back to when you did your awesome routine at the Nationals, the whole would have beenruined had 2 guys been babbling the whole time during. Everyone including you talks about the lack of good posing today, but one other facet ruining the posing is exactly the babbling that goes on during live streaming of events. Boxers, hockey football, mma are geared to commentators talking during play because they don't do it to music, the posing routines are done to music 100%.. Huge difference. I suggest wathing figure skating routines as an example, they talk very little during routines

That is my major criticsm about the commentary, everything else is great, thanks

Good question.

here is a good example, minimal talk during the routine, different sport but similar where they have personal routines to music

definetly NOT the greatest Mr O never crowned
He was one of the more boring pros of his time-and left no legacy and paved no way -and he set no standards for anything
On video he was boring as hell and spoke with an irritating effeminate voice
His junky red car had the worst sounding brakes when he backed out of his garage-and u just about fell asleep listening to him talk about his diet and training
There were countless pros more deserving than him who should have won the O
If u wanted a pro from back in the day to represent the time period or how great bodybuilding used to be-Sean would not be it
Heís most known for trannies, confused backwards dieting, and eating a plate of fruit as a snack when he was dieting
