I have put together a list of Olympia posts that received responses both positive and negative. Many of those were in response to the final outcome of the Mr. & Ms. Olympia results and several revised predictions after prejudging. Many I think were surprised by the Friday night showing of the men and it was quite obvious that this year was going to be quite different from previous years.
The biggest differences were the physiques of Ronnie Coleman, Dennis Wolf, and Toney Freeman, just to name a few. Of course this is just my opinion so feel free to post additional responses to the following posts:

"Here are some pics of Ronnie at prejudging. Will he get number 9?"

Anonymous Says: Cutler has him
Robert Says: "Not even close. He will be lucky to make top five."
john Says: "Age has really caught up with Ronnie. Jay isn't that good - he's blocky - but Ronnie can no longer produce the physique we're used to. I think dexter Jackson looks better than anyone. Jay is a block"

Dan Solomon Prediction for 2007 Mr. Olympia! - Read Blog
6. Ronnie coleman
Dennis Wolf Overall! Says: "Has anyone failed to view the balance, symmetry, and mass that this guy carries. Ronnie is in great condition and appears to have come in at a lower weight to do so, but the injury is evident. Jay looks like he forgot to diet; no cross striations anywhere and extremely smooth. Mass alone can't carry a title. Dennis looks to be the pic if the judging is not sidelined with the oh so evident POLITICAL OVERTONE that this event carries."
John taylor Says: "Crush into a tree, man. You dont know anything about BB. Go sleep."
KingDavid1 Says: "i don't think your watching the same show. Victor Martinez looks a lot better than Jay Cutler. Ronnie Coleman at six place, your funny"

4. Lisa Aukland
5. Heather Policky
6. Betty Pariso"
goddessamazon Says: "I told my friend Jazzmon that Iris Kyle was gonna win this year. Poor Dayana!"
curt_james Says: "Dayana says there's unfinished business and she's going to settle it at the Arnold Classic. Iris didn't commit to the Arnold yet, but I'm looking to see them compete against each other again. I agree that Dayana deserves some sympathy but you can't fault the razor sharp Iris Kyle. Dayana has the tinier waist, but Iris clobbers her on calves. I love them both although I was hoping for a Yaxeni win this year. I'm not a fan of "the same champ every year" syndrome."
paul thomas Says: "too much anadrol for dayana"

Shots From Olympia '07 - Read Blog
Hey everyone! Here are some shots from the expo and show. Hope you enjoy them. T-
Expo-Did you stop by the Bodybuilding.com booth- I did!
Big Wilk Says: "Ronnie looked better than ever."
John taylor Says: "Jay was soft all over with oil pipes in there big time. Hey, these are your judges, deal with them. I dont get it anymore."
DoubleD at GOLDS RC Says: "Jay won but I think he sees the writing on the wall the sport is going back to a smaller, tighter physique...Jay should back it off to about 260-265 lbs next year or these smaller 230-250 lb guys will eat his lunch...he was lucky this year...but next year we go back in time!!! I think it is good for the sport"
These are just a handful of the great posts and responses we have received before, during, and after this historical event - The 2007 Olympia, which was held this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.
