Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

also, whoever sold this picture is a ****ing moron. I bet he could have gotten a million bucks selling it to phelps people instead of prolly like 10K or whatever he got selling it to the rag he sold it to.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

Its not blackmail....its just giving them the first option of purchasing it

even if it could be construed as blackmail, they still wouldnt care, since if they did anything about it, the picture would hit the presses anyway

If South Carolina prosecutes, I think they should be kicked out of the union... it's what they have always wanted anyway.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

This whole thing is blown out of proportion. So what he smokes weed. It is his body he is damaging (not like other things don't damage the body that are legal). On top of it, it isn't performance enhancing drugs. The prosecutor is only trying to make headlines even thinking of pressing criminal charges. That photo of the bong doesn't even have smoke in the tube and the bong looks unused.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

It's against the law, bacats. And Phelps should be subject to it just like anybody else, but it will probably be swept under the rug because he's a big star. It also hurts his image which is bad for his advertisers. I know if my little kid now says he wants to grow up to be Michael Phelps I will tell him, "So you want to be a drug addict? Not in my house!" And I will ban him from swimming.

After Phelps got the DUI he said that you should always take responsibility for your actions and I hope he gets thrown in jail. He's a hypocrite. How many chances does this hooligan get? Who does he think he is, Pacman Jones?

LOL, A+.

Also, that sheriff's beyond ridiculous. There's a 3 month old photo of a guy with a pipe, what are you going to charge him with? Being in the same room with something that could be used to smoke marijuana at some point in your life? Might as well just start arresting people at random and assuming they're guilty.

It is only against the law in most states. Ok it hurts his image I agree, but drug addict!? That is a little steep don't you think, and banning your child from swimming because he wants to be like Micheal Phelps who is only doing what 95% of young adults do. Experiment. Hooligan, comparing to Pacman Jones!!!

You see Tuq, just rediculous' sometimes.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

In fairness, they probably didn't want to renew him anyway and this is a better excuse than "you're not going to famous again for three years, we'd rather spend the money on Ben Rothlisberger or somebody". Then when he "redeems" himself they can hire him again.

just saw this on ESPN. This is getting beyond ridiculous tbh. But so is his fame iyam. Winning 8 gold medals is pretty much only something a swimmer can do anyways. How many can Kobe win? 1 per Olympics.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

You don't know how often he's been toking it up! Phelps could have more drugs in his system now than Heath Ledger's corpse! I, for one, and glad to see him lose sponsorships for this. I will now feel good about myself when my son gets diabetes from eating too much sugary Kellogg cereal.

And good for the swimming pool committee, which I didn't even know existed, for suspending this druggie. Hopefully this lends credibility to South Carolina's prosecution of this junkie, who took the Lindsey Lohan path to destruction. And hopefully bacats and Greear10 get their sarcasm meters fixed soon, but maybe they're just lost causes anyway.

Umm weed smoke is just as bad for you, if not worse, than cigarette smoke. I will pretty much guarantee no one can smoke at a stonerrific pace and be an olympic champion. So, as someone else said...gtfo.

Is there a reason to go overboard like this. One pic and he is a junkie?? I have never smoked weed and probably never will, but I think everyone is overacting. The guy went out one night and made a mistake. If you think Phelps is the only athlete that smokes weed you are very naive.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

lol no one thinks he is the only athlete that smokes weed. wtf. it's just that the athletes that smoke weed generally don't have pictures of them doing it. also, this thread should be about the stupidity of phelps for breaking the law around unknowns or shady people and not whether or not weed should be legal.

In an unrelated press release, the swimming pool committee canceled all swim meets for the next 3 months.

I could be wrong about this too but I think in general cigarettes end up being worse for you because people smoke a lot more of them. The fact that weed smoke is generally completely unfiltered makes it much worse for you on a "hit for hit" basis

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong

THC is actually a good fighter of cancer as it kills dangerous cells where as nicotine inhibits the death of those cells.

Also, my sources say that the bong has been confiscated and people associated have been questioned. Weed smoking srs bznis

Joint vs Cig the joint is probably "worse" for your lungs, but as you pointed out, people smoke ALOT of cigs, like packs and packs over the course of just a few days. The average smoker is doing alot more damage to their lungs vs. the recreational pot smoker just due to the number of cigs they smoke.

Also, I agree Kellogg's is using this as an excuse. Let's be honest, America doesn't give a crap about the Olympics or olympic athletes for like 3.5 of every 4 years. The 3 months before and 3 months after the games is about the only time the average joe on the street hears about 95% of the sports they do in the Olympics.

Pro athletes in mainstream sports (football, basketball, baseball, etc.) have much better staying power as you see them on tv and competing every single year over many many games.
