    Just my opinion but I've always felt that the Mr. Olympia should be the best of the best. Limit it to 10 guys and only guys that have won a pro show that year.

    I think if they did that then you would not need a 2 day show and the O is about making $$$$. If you get 10 guys you could knock the show out in an hour.

    Exact, business is business, so NBA and other leagues have so many franchises, only to sell games all year.

    Also, sentimentality is used about not limited to few competitors the dream of go to MO stage.

    We want a good show but also want athletes to achieve their dreams, medium term.

    I mean that must address both needs, the public wants a great show without filling athletes, but also give athletes the option of going to the MO, not to do something only for a very limited group.

    Business must satisfy the public, workers (players) and a profit of managers. Everything must be in balance, but usually the managers prioritizes his winnings on everything else.

    How is this about making more money when the number of women competitors has increased fivefold plus the addition of 30-40 more competitors with the physique classes? The only thing I see going DOWN is the number of competitors at the Mr. Olympia, the 212 and women's bodybuilding. All the other classes have increased dramatically the last 2 years. So in reality, the promoter is spending more money now than 2 years ago for airfares + hotel stays. Also, there are 30% LESS shows this year for men to qualify prior to the Olympia and 30% MORE shows for bikini/figure/fitness to qualify. In essence, we will see 70% women and 30% men competing at the Olympia Weekend this year.
