Completely Disappointed in Tiger...

If you're going to allow yourself to be potrayed as this high standard, example to young men in this county, and profit handsomely from that image, you'd better be willing to walk a mighty thin line or you will get called on it.

I'm with Bobby here on this... is he still the best golfer alive, yes. Has he been portrayed in the media as this great family man and great person? Yes. Do I now have to explain to my kids what he did? Yes... that's why I care.

Should these corporations that have paid him tens of millions of dollars to be a spokesperson and sell their products care about his off-course behavior? Absolutely they should and do.

On a personal level, do I care, hell no... he's an adult and can do whatever he wants, but there are consequences in the real world, and he's dealing with them now.

Wish I could find the quote by his dad, saying what a phenomenal person his son is and how he was going to change the world.

Edit, here it is...

"Tiger will do more than any other man in history to change the course of humanity," Earl Woods said. No kidding? Smith was understandably skeptical, so he followed up: Would the kid do more than Buddha, Gandhi and Nelson Mandela?

"Yes, because he has a larger forum than any of them," Earl said.

He may have been right... Tiger may turn this thing around and make it acceptable for every married man to have 12 mistresses. If that's the case, my hats off to him and I'll be a fan for life.

it use to be acceptable in Bible times. Concubines and stuff. Society should go back to that.

You all must be young and naive.

Something my late uncle-in-law taught me on the shores of the South Core Banks.

We'd be out there...fishing..stinking...and some lass would occasionally come across on the ferry to look for shells and whatnot. Sometimes a hotty. We were all pretty inebriated and we were talking about this one...and he said "boys...let me tell you something. I know ya'll are checking out that woman. She's hot..there's no doubt. But let me tell you one important fact. Somewhere...someone is sick and tired of her s**t"

Puts things into perspective.

12 women? Are you farking nuts?

Did I say all at once? Did I say marry all twelve? Hell no, I'm not that crazy. 12 mistresses... BIG difference.

mistresses entail handling

now...if you'd said 12 random events...ok...I'd say fine. But management? No.

Purity-Control - I hear ya man and I get it. I just have this compulsion to point out how ridiculous it is.

I'm with Bobby here on this... is he still the best golfer alive, yes. Has he been portrayed in the media as this great family man and great person? Yes. Do I now have to explain to my kids what he did? Yes... that's why I care.

Should these corporations that have paid him tens of millions of dollars to be a spokesperson and sell their products care about his off-course behavior? Absolutely they should and do.

On a personal level, do I care, hell no... he's an adult and can do whatever he wants, but there are consequences in the real world, and he's dealing with them now.

The only reasons those corporations give a flying fug is because we are all crowding around the TV with our voyeur glasses trying to get a glimpse of his personal train wreck. They know its a better play to move away from him than to be standing too close if and when we start calling for the spikes and cross. Talk about your positive feedback loops...

As for your kids...

Why do they have to know? When I was around 10 a Jim Brown hung his willie out on the pages of Playgirl. My dad never had to explain why that was a bad thing and Mr Brown wasn't the kind of man I should want to grow up to be. I dont mean to tell you how to raise your kids. I just think wer all tell our kids too much about the "grown up" world these days.

If you're going to allow yourself to be potrayed as this high standard, example to young men in this county, and profit handsomely from that image, you'd better be willing to walk a mighty thin line or you will get called on it.

But that's our fault.... not his.

We are the ones who put him up there next to the Gods. And now that we see he is just a man he has to suffer?

I don't understand when people say "he's just a man". I've never cheated, several guys I know have never cheated. There are professional athletes who've never cheated.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. could've been the same way. Had he chose to get married and be a family man his sponsors would've marketed the hell out of that just like Tiger's did, and Tiger did film the ads, do the interviews, and sign the deals allowing himself to be made out that way, he had no problem banking the checks. Junior didn't do it because he, like Tiger, wants a different woman wherever he goes. The difference is Junior doesn't pretend otherwise, so nobody cares.
