The 2 in the pic and any number of other pro's burned into our brains over the decades are freaks. Given what we think we know about how PED programs evolved over the years, some guys were freakier than others. Nicknames don't mean much, but they're still cool to discuss in typical barroom/barbershop debates about who your fav's are. It wasn't accident that Sergio was The Myth.

Sergio over Coleman any day of the week, hate that big bellied unaesthetic look that typifies the modern BB age

Ill always prefer the look of the bodybuilders from the 1950s up to around the time when Lee Haney retired from competition
Nowadays I always look to that past Golden age or the current 'Physique/fitness Pros' for inspiration

Yates seemed to usher in the new era of wide waisted, GH gutted, acne ridden pregnant looking, identikit barely distinguishable from one another mass freaks

Sure you all prefer Sergio. (And I got to see him live, kicking, and at his peak because he knew my father.)

But the judges don't see it that way because they keep on rewarding the freak muscle monster!

Ummm Sergio was the freak muscle monster of the day. And the judges didn't reward him for it. Instead they opted for Schwarzenegger.

To me it's like old school porn vs the porn nowdays... A little more realistic back in the day.
