Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong - arrests ensue

From here.



This is just monumentally dumb. How many millions of dollars is he jeopardizing by doing stupid **** like this? This is nearly Vick-level stupidity imo.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

Why can't he do what he wants? Only has a few months where he's not training and can live it up. Weeds not bad. calling smoking weed, nearly vick-level is just crazy.


Also, the great part imo, is that is a 2p2ers bong he's smoking from (ckingusc)

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

He swept his DWI under the rug pretty nicely. When he's relevant again in 2012 no one will care about this.

Also, can someone explain drug testing in swimming to a noob. Wouldn't they check for marijuana (although it's obviously not a performance enhancer ldo)?

This act, this picture, is going to cost him millions of dollars. Advertisers care about this sort of thing, whether or not they "should".

Maybe I'm underestimating the people he endorses and they'll be more understanding than I think they will, I dunno.

For someone who already has millions of dollars, possibly jeopardizing future income isn't that big of a deal.

To be honest this has the potential to open up an entire new range of promotional opportunities. Any potato chip, pizza delivery chain, frozen food company should be jumping over themselves to sign Mr. Phelps to an endorsement deal.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

I just find it funny that in some places smoking weed is career suicide, almost on par with killing dogs.

I haven't been keeping track, what kind of endorsements has Phelps had since the Olympics? What kind of existing money is at stake here? Anyone know?

Meh, he can just claim it was photoshopped or it wasn't him completely. No big deal.

Phelps said it was him. Isn't it legal in England?

He released a statement apologizing.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

And now Costas has to mention it in the first 10 minutes of the pre-game. This is ridiculous.

And LOL at Phelps ".. and I promise my fans it won't happen again." Translation: I promise I won't let anyone take a picture of it again."

I've said it before, but this picture could be like 80% of the white male population ages 18-30. It means less than nothing, and if anything will just give him more street cred w/the kiddies

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

Of course, had he been caught with a Heineken in his hand, it'd have just meant another endorsement deal.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

and why phelps didnt get the camera and break it. my guess is that people there would be on phelps side to help him get and destroy the camera, no?

i would imagine he's smart enough to quit smoking when the olympics roll around every four years or so
