    There is something rotten in Peking. I have no respect for the Chinese whatsoever. Their entire sports program is out of kilter. I believe Ye is cheating and believe she pulled up tonight trying to draw less attention. I'll never forget Sydney and how they tried to screw the world in swimming.

    That being said, the American official should have kept his mouth shut. It's one thing to bitch on a message board. Another to whine to the press. If she cheated she will likely get busted. They keep the samples for future testing.

    A female swimmer going faster than Michael Phelps is pretty much equivalent to a 16-year old girl showing up in major league baseball with a 105 mph fastball. Physiologically, it's simply not possible.

    Ya know, I don't think she's on anything.

    I'm more suspicious "she" isn't really a she.

    I believe they check for that. Mama don't take my chromosomes away.
