I didn't say they WOULD strip the gold, but that IMO they SHOULD strip the gold for his conduct at the Olympics. I didn't really expect that they would. My opinion hasn't changed. He was an embarrassment to the U.S. for all the world to see.
American Olympians should conduct themselves with a high standard of conduct when they are participating in the olympics, especially when they are on foreign soil. That's what it boils down to for me.
