Being that you were at the contest, I would love to hear your perspective on the show, do you agree with the placings? Was Ronnie as astoundingly freaky as he was on pay per view? Personally I liked Dexter's package the best (except for the lack of calves) Jay looked a little off at the night show, but he looked tight in pics from the prejudging.

I would love it if guys like Jackson, Darrem, Melvin, were winning shows, but it must be difficult for the judges not to reward someone who looks as insane as Coleman. I'm quite certain they will continue to reward the freakier guys, and the trend will continue.

I plan on writing something up in the near future if I can. Ronnie was a total freak. I don't really like his body, but he out muscles everyone so bad it's not funny. Jay has the shape for a big man, but he lacks back density. Dexter really has a Flex like shape which is very pleasing to the eye I agree. However, I was not close enough to the stage (as I could not get a press pass for this show to sit right in the press box) to give super detailed judging. People don't realize how close you really have to be to see what condition they are in and I was not close enough to make a judges eye assesment. Finally, unless I am being paid to cover the show (as I was for the NOC for example) I don't pay super close attention as I have been to 100 of these things. The GNC show next week should be interesting. Anyone going?
