Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

From the ESPN article on this, here are a few quotes from the US Olympic Committee:

Quote:
Originally Posted by ESPN
The U.S. Olympic Committee said it was "disappointed in the behavior recently exhibited by Michael Phelps," who was selected the group's sportsman of the year. He also was honored as AP male athlete of the year, and his feat in Beijing -- breaking Mark Spitz's 36-year-old record for most gold medals in an Olympics -- was chosen as the top story of 2008.

"Michael is a role model, and he is well aware of the responsibilities and accountability that come with setting a positive example for others, particularly young people," the USOC said in a statement. "In this instance, regrettably, he failed to fulfill those responsibilities."

...

The USOC noted that Phelps acknowledged his mistake and apologized.

"We are confident that, going forward, Michael will consistently set the type of example we all expect from a great Olympic champion," the governing body said.
Sounds to me like they don't really care at all, and certainly they're not throwing him under a bus or anything. As for 2012, there's also this:

Quote:
Marijuana is viewed differently from performance-enhancing drugs, according to David Howman, executive director of the World Anti-Doping Agency. An athlete is subject to WADA sanctions only for a positive test that occurs during competition periods.

"We don't have any jurisdiction," Howman said. "It's not banned out of competition. It's only if you test positive in competition."

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

I guess it's not a big deal if getting high is more valuable than millions of dollars to you

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

Phelps doing this doesn't bother me in the least of course but I understand he needs to learn to be more discreet because of his endorsements, etc. I'm more amazed at the prick who took the pic and ran with it. You're hanging out with Phelps so you have some right and/or ability to feel you're kind of cool and "I'm so awesome...look at me...I'm hanging out with Phelps who's smoking a bong" but instead this guy decides to try to ruin the guy's rep as best he can and snap a pic with his cell-phone or whatever.

How many people were in the room with him that he didn't notice an up-close pic like that and just destroy the guy with the camera? I guess one can hold a cell-phone like they're checking a text message or something and snap the pic more discreetly.

It doesn't depend at all on where he lives. It depends on where he currently is when he smokes it.
