"... Luxury Swiss watchmaker Omega termed Phelps' actions a private matter and "nonissue." Swim wear manufacturer Speedo called the 23-year-old American a "valued member of the Speedo team. ..."The consensus is that Phelps will come out of this unscathed though summarily embarrassed but I take a contrary point of view: I suspect those outrageously paid marketing director's at the multi-billion-dollar 'conglomos' who took Phelps on as the face of their company are evaluating whose job is at risk here, his job or their jobs! Especially at companies like McDonalds, Kellogs, and Visa.
