WTF, some people here seem to have the mentality that:

If you bash someone who`s successful, you`re jealous.

Whereas if you bash someone who`s not particularly successful, you`re being honest.

No amount of gold medals and super swimming abilities can ever take away how much of an arse someone is.

He went to high school near me, and I have some friends who can witness for him being a douche.

Certainly, he could have matured since high school.. But I`m pretty sure fame just increases dickiness by 110%.

i did swim team as a kid; they were all flamingly gay kids. hated the lot of them and never did it again after a hellish wasted summer. then again maybe its just california. everyone is a douche here, except me :]

phelps looks like a douche but i don`t really think he is. except that he most likely will NEVER change his fashion sense, or lack thereof, so he is probably very douchy.

i don`t think anyone has a right to say that he`s a douchebag (which is a stupid name to call anyone anyways) unless you personally know him. oh... and i`d like to see all of you accomplish even a quarter of what he`s done.

I used to love this guy, then I realized by friends were so much drating hotter, and they`re not that hot.

So as a person, I dislike him.

But because I used to do swim team, as a swimmer, whoa nelly.

So after breaking a world record the world`s response should simply be "Meh, he only beat it by ONE gold medal. Big deal"? Stop f*cking hating. He deserves all the attention he gets.

i hear about this guy like every 10 minutes... it getting old. i mean seriously, he just won 8 medals, people will win more than that in the future, all he did was set the bar a little higher.

plus your depleting his meme ability at an alarming rate, he has to last at least until the end of the Beijing olympics!!!

Say what you will about him, but the night that he won his 8th gold medal, I was in Ann Arbor, where he went to school. When he won it, the cheers just erupted from all over. It was kind of magical.

Awesome picture with the 8 gold medals. Just incredible.

But you people take things too seriously. He`s got some cash now, can afford nice clothes, gets invited to TRL BIG DEAL! He`s a young olympic champion what do you except? It`s not a bad thing.

He`s one of the greatest athletes ever so maybe he`s a bit roostery as I`m sure you would be. And despite all that he still seems pretty down to earth and genuine.

^ u want him. Clearly.

Anyways, I though I had respect for this guy. But after reading this... he`s lost it, absorbed by the media. He really is a duchebag. I don`t care how many medals he won, to me he`s just `the best swimmer`, that`s all.

Now someone needs to beat his record, someone with more brains, and someone who isnt so... duchey.

still at perfection :

do you know that even the announcers that probably know a whole lot more than you and me even said that his record will almost never be broken and if so, it would almost certainly be another swimmer because getting that many medals in ANY other sports is impossible...(unless the IOC does some changes)

O and by the way....7 of the top 20 medal winners are swimmers....

@ concentra - when did i say he was a douche?? i actually defended him by saying that he WASN`T one....

@ Perfection - I`m not trying to diminish anything he did....he won 8 gold medals...tahts fantastic.....i think hes one of the greatest atheletes ever.....and just because i don`t hes THE greatest athelte gives you a right to call me a "jerkoff"???


"As a male gymnast, you could win 7 golds, by being the best at everything"

ya and as a male swimmer you can possible win a total of 16 golds....but just because you can doesn`t mean you enter everything .....just like a male gymnast who doesnt enter everything because some events and heaats overlapp...

What does being a douche have to do with just wearing a certain type of clothing? I admit I hate the clothes that he wears and the way he wears it but I don`t label him as a douche.

And why is everyone complaining? Especially the people in the US, he won 8 freaking gold medals he deserves a poo load of awesome.

Oh I dunno mickeym19, did ya know that out of the top 20 all time medal holders, only 3 are swimmers??? Yep, it`s totally easy to win shi*t tons of medals in swimming. He won events in different strokes, against world class atheletes that specialize, in those strokes. He swam 17 races in like 9 days. He swam 3 different lengths. As a male gymnast, you could win 7 golds, by being the best at everything. As a runner, to equal what he did, you would have to run the 100, 200, and 400, plus the relays. He set 7 world records in 8 races. Don`t be a jerkoff and try to diminish what he accomplished. Try and know some facts before you go and parrot back the crap you`ve heard from other morons.

Has anyone actually heard the guy talk and come off as a douchebag that way? To me he looks like any other normal guy. Geez if I won 8 gold medals and everyone was gloating about how great I was I`d be quite proud of myself too and take pictures with my 8 medals.

last time i checked, being a douchebag is a personality problem, not a clothing problem. i can`t say i agree with this. plus he won 8 gold medals, if he`s roostery let him be.
and globpharm, how does your friend swim with him if he lives near b-more?

You missed the most obvious reason why Phelps is a douchebag...

i think i stand in that middle ground between blow, and bash. I think he represented america very well with his 8 gold medals, not saying hes a dousche but even if he is he kinda has the right to be.

plus there are way bigger dousche bags out there that i would rather see bashed like people who are roostery that don`t deserver it, i think 8 gold medals and you can poo on the american(or w/e nation you were from) and i could care less.

What is the actual definitely of a douche from this guys pov? Honestly >.> So he has bad fashion sense, who gives a crap? Fashion`s overrated, ever changing, and usually stupid anyway.

Geez, people either want to blow him or bash him. Can`t there be a middle ground where we say "Wow, congrats on 8 gold medals in one Olympic event!" and be done with it?

comeone...he`s not a douche...

but then again, he`s also not the "greatest olympian"...tell me which other sport can you enter 8 different events???

is he a great athelete - absolutely

is he one of the best athelets ever - absolutely

is he the greatest athlete or olympian ever - well thats subjective...but i don`t think so....


just my 2 cents
