    It's an interesting question to ponder for a swimmer who retired three years ago.

    Flip turns can be very disorienting after a few beers.

    Does being an idiot preclude you from doing what you do best?

    Let him swim. Who cares? The justice system (presumably) took care of disciplining him. Unlike the NFL or MLB, which discipline players for off-field incidents (cue Ray Rice joke) to protect their images, USA Swimming has no image without Phelps. Who or what does it serve to keep him out?

    USA Swimming has an image?
