This unwritten rule that the Current Mr Olympia never gets beaten is a fucking joke. No disrepect to Ronnie. I vote that No One contestant can win it more than 3 times. Then he must retire from the Mr O. The fact that greats like Wheeler, Levrone, Ray, Cormier and Priest have never won it is bullshit. What does everyone think??

I agree with you to the fact that the same winner is getting old but to limit a champions tenure is another thing.

Judging needs to be less biased!

I'm not sure if this has been addressed, but I think they should have new judges every year. 

Same judges = same results

The problem is that the Olympia is a business, not a sporting event.  The owners apparently think they can make more money if the same guy wins year after year.

Get enough of the best judges (maybe 11), have a decent judging system (NOT IFBB), have independent officials, use proper judging criteria, and you might be able to select the best person to win. It is a must to do away with scoring the posedown. The posedown cannot be properly judged and allows too much crap to occur and errant judges to be 'corrected'.

I have mixed feelings. I think everybody on that stage has to work there ass off and deserves recognition, but at the same time, if you come in eight years in a row looking the best than by standard judging you should win. I do agree that many of the greats that did not win definitly should have been considered and were past due for their sandow. especially priest, the guys a god amongst common men1

I think they should change SOME of the judges every year, but probably not all, and they all would still need to be IFBB judges. Bodybuilding is an opinionated sport. If it were judged by ppl who didn't know anything about bodybuilding then David Henry would qualify and win every year(no disrespect to him, he is great). I think the judges just need to make more comparisons. I think everyone should be compared to ppl that are within 4 places of them. That way everybody can get more representation.

What you guys fail to realize - the Mr. Olympia is what it is becuase of the dynastys Wink.....if you have different people winning it every year it loses it's luster and is no different than any other show.

Great point, Lee. Yes, I bet they are playing it safe. Somehow I think things would change at the O. if the current O.'s are forced to compete 2-3 times a year.

There's no need to force anyone to compete a set number of times per year.  Just make the Olympia only for the winners of that year's shows.  Then, all the top guys would compete in the smaller shows throughout the year to try and qualify for the O.  The Olympia is suppose to be for champions, not guys who finish 5th at the NY Pro.

I understand what everybody is saying about changing the judges every year.  I think that it the best thing that can be done.  I also think that they follow the mandate that Ben Weider put out last year should be enforced.  How many qualified IFBB judges are there?  I have say that regardless of anything else, Ronnie Coleman is still the best on stage.  Even if he comes 85 or 90% he still can win.  I also do believe that the judges should be made up of NPC judges and IFBB judges.  They should earn the right to be there just like the competitors.

If you made the top 6 (previously top 10), you might have had that luxury to peak for one show.  But I do recall that until last year, Ronnie competed on the European Grand Prix tour in at least two shows.  So if you have to requalify for the Olympia, and you're burnt--too bad..

I think that putting a limit on # of wins on the O defeats the purpose of the show. Its there to present the best in the pro ranks, if there was a limit the retirements would be plenty and the ranks would thin out.

I do like the idea that everybody needs to  qualify.
