    Default Ryan Lochte

    Ok so unless you have been living in a van down by the river, you know what Lochte did at the Rio Olympics. Went out to a party with other swimmers, got hammered as per the usual with him, and then went to a gas station where he pissed in an ally and knocked an advertising sign off a wall.


    so armed security guards stop him and his friends and get them to pay for the "damaged" sign

    he gets back to the Olympic village, and still drunk, gets put on air where he tells the world that he and his buddies were held up at the gas station and robbed at gun point.

    So, I partially blame NBC who should have seen that he was drunk, but couldn't resist the story or him on camera. and I kind of give him a little pass for not understanding what was going on in the moment. Face it, that guy is DEE YOU EM BEE

    but I can't give him a pass for getting out of the country and leaving those other swimmers to deal with the mess


    but MAN, they just came down with his punishment and it is way to harsh in my opinion. It basically ends his career. They didn't give Phelps this long a ban when he got picked up for DUI TWICE.


    So here's the punishment

    he has to give back any money awarded for winning his gold medals

    he has no access to USOC swim facilities to train for 10 months

    he cannot compete in any sanctioned events for 10 months

    After the 10 month suspension he cannot compete in the next National Championships in 2017

    he has to do 20 hours of community service.

    taking him out of the water and out of competition for that long at the age of 32 means they have pretty much called an end to his swimming career. and he has already been punished by losing Sure he has Dancing with the Stars coming up...but thats not going to get him any endorsements

    Sure he embarassed US Swimming at the RIO Olympics...but RIO embarrassed themselves with their green water in the diving pools and unfinished facilities and the trash and pollution in the waterways.

    guess it's considered a bigger deal to embarrass the USOC than to put people's lives in danger like Phelps did.

    Was it harsh? Yes, but I have a hard time feeling sorry for the guy.

    I don't know. I don't think you can be easy on American Olympic athletes who get drunk during the Olympics and go destroying and pissing on property in the host country. Is 10 months too much? Perhaps. But I think they had to be strong on this issue.

    As far as the whole controversy, I can't excuse Lochte for embellishing the story and leaving teammates behind to answer for what he did, but I think his treatment regarding his story is a little unfair.

    Say he did what he did in the US, the gas station calls police, they investigate, and then you are charged with a crime. What isn't supposed to happen is armed security at the gas station detains you at gunpoint and says you're not going anywhere if you don't give them money (even if it is for the damage they allegedly caused). Because, despite the embellishments and lies, that would seem awfully similar to armed robbery to me.

    well, I think the armed security would have thrown me off because you don't expect a gas station to have their own police! Remember, he said that the people who "robbed" them were pretending to be police and during the time that the others were trying to deal with the problem Ryan wandered off. and I'm sure that the Olympic organizers filled the heads of the athletes with dire warnings about the crime in Rio. and in his drunken and stupid stupor he misinterpreted everything. ..... honestly I'm looking forward to Dancing with the Stars not for his dancing, but for the comedy gems that will be coming from this guys mouth


    the one thing I have really do have a problem with is him leaving the other guys behind to deal with this...but I'll bet you his sports agents were the ones that got him out of there as fast as they could

    Ryan Lochte is not the kind of guy who leaves a party early.

    Heard he was doing "Dancing with the Stars" next. Will probably become the next pop culture media darling. We Americans have the short term attention span of gnats.

    So USA swimmer Ryan Lochte gets a 10 month ban by the USOC, can't compete in any championships, and was uninvited to the White House, for lying about the Brazil "gas station incident". Ehhh, Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 emails, more then half classified, from her personal-unprotected server, lied about it, was indicted, and is running for President with protective help of the leftist press. So apparently the American public (and press) are more concerned about a halfwit swimmer vs the career criminal politician running for the Presidency. Yup, sounds about right...

    And she let at least thirty different lawyers that also had over seas governments as clients help erase/destroy the classified e-mails.

    It's a nice attempt by the media to distract the general population over the mess that our government's in.
    Let's just focus on the stories that the world doesn't give a shit about.

    Ryan Lochte was on the verge of being attacked Monday night during the live season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" ... and the man who rushed the staged was taken down by security and detained.

    Lochte had just finished a foxtrot with Cheryl Burke and they were standing next to Tom Bergeron to get the judges' feedback, when a group in the audience ripped their shirts open to reveal the round symbol for "No Lochte" on their chests. The group was booing the swimmer when one rushed the stage.

    The cameras did not capture the incident, but viewers on the East Coast could hear the commotion.

    We don't know if the guy in question was arrested.
