    Phelps should give him 50 percent of his profits

    And the corrupt officials who called him the winner of the other race.

    If you don't know what I am talking about, I can't help you.

    I'm not asking you to help me. I just have no idea what you're referring to. It's becoming clear that I wasn't around for one of your irrational rants, but if you don't want to provide a refresher I'll rest easy assuming that I didn't miss much.

    FDP, despite this photo...


    ... and despite the fact that he has zero evidence supporting his grand conspiracy, Simon believes because he watched the race on television, and because it appeared from above the water that Cavic touched the wall first, that a super secretive corrupt cabal of pro-American Olympic officials doctored the timing mechanism (making this decision in the half a second it took for the results to appear on the board in the Water Cube after the race ended) to declare Phelps the winner in the 100 meter butterfly.

    Never mind that there is zero evidence to support this, if you don't believe it, you are a (bleeping) (bleep). This is inarguable among the sane.

    That makes about as much sense as I expected it to.

    Cavic himself has said that he had a chance to get there first, but Phelps hit the sensor first, fair and square.

    it could be a reach to suggest this, but maybe phelps loses to cavic if the lezak relay didn't pump so much life into the whole thing. that's what one of the coaches said in this piece. not a bad point....and also, how much extra money did lezak earn phelps here? gotta be 5-10 million
