Re. the Tom Daley (a.k.a. the Justin Bieber of the Olympics) twitter saga.

The 17-year old dude relates to Tom because Tom lost his dad last year to cancer and he lost his mother recently.
The boy has a history of insulting on twitter. He's a bit of an emotional wreck by the looks of it.
He started by writing that Tom let his dad down. (paraphrasing)
Tom retweeted that and said that after all the effort he put into it, he gets ^ this.
Tom's fans get on the case and start bombarding the 17-year old's twitter account for his stupidity.
The 17-year old apologises but his previous history on twitter to insult at random makes those apologies sound empty. He keeps getting heckled on twitter which pushes him over the edge so he starts making death threats (more than once).

I'm guessing he got arrested for the death threats.

Can you imagine the police arresting everybody who has made death threats on MTF?
It just goes to show that IMO, MTF is right in banning people for it, even if it's said "as a joke".

I'm not defending the 17-year old boy. He was an utter idiot but I'm pretty sure that the police wouldn't have arrested him if he'd made it against any other unknown dude. This is what annoys me in this.

I guess I’m failing to understand the whole tweet thing.

I mean send a fulminating email to your best friend or something, but why do you want the whole world to see your thoughts?

At least he wasn’t arrested.

But, the Greek girl was punished more severely. The Swiss guy got to compete, he just couldn’t stick around the Olympic Village.

Could people stop puting Federer on those lists with the hottest Olympics athletes?

It's so strange that these athletes work so hard to be in the Olympics and throw it away with these stupid tweets. Is there no one around them to prevent their idiocy?

I agree. She just made a joke, albeit a bad one

He was much, much, worse ....

btw, those GB divers clearly went over on their dive. Huge splash.

Just saw your princess knock down some fences and get time penalties to boot.

Jesus! This canadian rider who was thrown broke her tailbone and had a concussion. She said her horse had a history of bucking and had sent her to the hospital three times before.

There’s not a more reliable mount to send to the Olympics?

I thought she should have been severely reprimanded, but being denied the ability to compete was harsh. If she did it again, then she could have been banned.

Agree, sick and fed up hearing about twitter thesedays

cant blame Tom Daley for anything in this but he's milking it a bit and so are the media (who hyped him up in the first place) as you pointed out

a horse cannot be replaced so easily, I suppose. There is no way that a rider would compete with a different horse.

I have no problem with "The richest..." list

But Fed and Phelps on "The hottest..."? Seriously.....

I was thinking of picking a different pair altogether.

Some of these professional riders ride several horses in one event.

I think almost none of them (except the princess) own their mounts. They keep them and ride them, but someone wealthy — like Ann Romney — owns the horse.

Sort of like the musicians who play those rare and ancient instruments.
