Yeah, I don't know if it's the caliber and personalities, or just getting older and not as Olympia-giddy as we once were as September approaches each year.
I know some people used to whine that Jay was "boring" (as if it's a requirement of being the best bodybuilder in the world to be considered entertaining online), but watching him duke it out with Ronnie, wondering if Dex or even Vic were gonna edge him with his sporadic conditioning, but there was still some excitement going into each year's Olympia.
People don't really seem to like Phil though. It's not a boring thing, it's (I think) more of a cocky arrogant thing. Couple that with obvious comparisons to his not being anywhere near as dominant as previous winners, and.. well, here we are.
