Michael Francois would be one of my "unsung heros"

He was a guy that had the thickness and density of Dorian Yates (yes, even his back!) with significantly better aesthetics.

Damn shame he got cut down before his time.

I'd drop Padilla in favor of Shawn Ray

For aesthetics, the dude that got leukemia would be near the top. Its on the tip of my tongue, but I just cant... Dennis Newman.

Lee Haney would also be top 2 or 3. Ronnie wouldnt make my top 10. Most of the guys that would be in my top 10 would be pre-1995 when the guys actually looked big and in great shape, but also looked relatively healthy. Todays BBers look like mutated beasts that dont even resemble the pinnacle of health.

I don't like the current crop of mass monsters. To me the man that has always had the most symetrical, polished physique is Serge Nubret.

danny padilla never won the O.

Ronnie Coleman at, what was it, 2001 Arnold? and 2003 O were outstanding.

and Dennis Newman and Michael Francois BOTH were definitely Gayle Sayers-type losses.
