More on Phelps screwing up his reputation

Posted by ZA on February 3, 2009

As I’ve stated, I don’t think this will have a significant impact on his endorsement potential.  Will cool him off for a time while he’s in “time out”, but he’ll be hot as ever by the time London 2012 rolls around.

But Andy Beal has an interesting article on how Phelps marijuana photo is going to overshadow his positive accomplishments on the web.  Read it here.
Sports Business Daily also has a ton of opinions on what Phelps dope smoking will mean to his future.

    Phelps might have made alienated a few people with that pot-smoking picture, but i think he might have gained the support of another huge group of people to take their place

      Great point, Coffee. Expect Phelps to pick up a sponsorship from Cheetos and White Castle any day now.

      And imagine how many medals he could win if he didn’t smoke weed? Look at Usain Bolt.
