    You make a good point, like when someone was saying he owes his fans and the game of golf a major apology. The only people he owes an apology is his wife and family.

    True, but from a moral standpoint it certainly doesn't make him a role model for kids either; as he's often portrayed.

    He is a very gifted golfer, but that's about where it ends with me. Honestly, I'm tired of hearing about his personal drama already. You play, you pay; it's as simple as that.

    I never wish bad on anyone, and hopefully he learns a valuable lesson from this and everyone involved can move on in their lives. When someone of his celebrity stature falls victim of a major faux pas like this, the media will eat you alive.

    I don't disagree with anything that you said, he has definitely majorly tarnished the image that he had so carefully built up over the years. This personal flaw of his makes him a horrible role model for kids but it also gives parents a opportunity to once again teach a lesson to their kids about how life can change in a instant.

  5. The whole thing is ridicolous!!! I mean seriously kobe bryant was accused of rape and didnt get nearly as much media coverage... It wont effect him at all. He will take some time off and be right back in the game.. sponsers are just pulling away to save face of the situation then he will get signed right abck again. Look at mike vick, he was not only accused but convicted of a crime and served time and is back on the playing field and still selling jerseys!!

    I could care less personally what anyone does. Most people are fans of a person for what they do in a particular sport not of them as a person, who cares about what they do? As long as hey are good at their sport they will sell tickets and fill seats.. who are we or anyone else for that matter to judge

    I belive he does owe an apology to his fans and supporters and his consumers because these are the people that helped gain the succes he has, wether athlets or celebs belive they are role models they are and im not saying that they are responsble people but most cant handle the succes, to whom much is given much is requierd.

    It also goes to show that even though this guy has every thing the world can offer he still is empty, hes a billionair, his wife is pretty nice looking compiared to the trashy ones he was sleepin with. He gets swag every where he goes (he dosent pay for anything), I wonder what it could be?

    Tiger seems like hes one of those guys thats real anal (no pun intended) he probally has a little ocd going on who knows Ill pray for the guy but I hope his wife takes him to the bank and goes and gets a check up.

    What does it profit a man to gain the hole world and loose his own soul?
    The looks of your mate have NOTHING to do with cheating. Hell, looks has been rated at the bottom when asked "what makes a person cheat". This goes for the visual on both the wife/husband and the person they are sleeping with.
    There are multiple reasons why one cheats. I am a realist and understand if a person does. I do not agree with cheating but I do know that it's reality.

    This is why I laugh at sponsors who drop the guy when those same CEO'S go on long "business" trips and father kids in the islands behind their wives back....

    Don't sweep up around my door until you dust your own damn welcome mat.

    Cheating has and always will be a subject matter. Just do what you have to do to remedy the issue, divorce, make up, etc. But, for goodness sakes, don't hit the radio waves with the same boring bs ever single day until till nausea

  8. Maybe it's just me being full that drives me out of the media interest. I have no idea.

    I watched yesterday for about 25 mins (which was my first time I seen anything specific) and I was completely bored by the whole hoopla and disinterested...a man gives 50 million to some starving kids in (name that place) and gets 5 mins of coverage, Tiger holes in 10 and gets a month's worth.

    Civilizations' morals for watching this bullshhhyat can be questioned. Obviously we all have our priorities lined up totally wrong..

    couldnt agree more...when you watching fox news and they have this breaking coverage and the news guy is updating you on britney and kfed im just like WTF??? this is news? seriously? But hey we cant all blame them, they do it because people watch it. It is society as a whole that would rather watch nonsense then something informative.. This is the age of stupid people! I mean if you need proof look at our last president.. (LOL)

  10. I don't know when athletes became the moral compass of society. It's time for people to look elsewhere for their inspiration!!

    agree...but kids and even myself back in the day looked up to many athletes cuz I/we are into sports and this dumb arse just does not show good character after portraying the "good" guy for many yrs...

    I personally didn't like him even after when he first turned pro...never showed respect to his opponent after he beat him…can’t remember his name...

    Umm how about the kids parents, teacher, youth pastor, doctor, uncle who is a archetiect, etc.. There are many people a young kid could look up to depending on their family sorrounding and these should be the people they look up to not some guy on tv hitting a ball with a stick. How about parents stop having tv raise their kids and teach them values themselves... Just a thought I could be just some crazy person

    If I was on my computer I would rep that post, first post I've read in a while that deserved it.

  15. As a kid, I followed the work ethic of my father and mother (six kids, little education for borh) but they made sure we went to college and graduated, some with honors and two hold phd's. This doesn't make us any better than whomever but it shows that inspiration can come from the parents regardless.
    I can understand the ones that have parents that allow anything, hell I had a lady tell me that she gives her daughter her ID to get into clubs because she's 16? WowJ

    So yeah, if the parents are lack luster then the kids have to look elsewhere for direction. However, we need follow the positives that these people do and learn them to not follow the negatives.

    If mick vick runs into a burning building to save a baby then great, follow that example (not saying run into a burning building, exactly) but if mick vick is burning dogs, learn that this is not acceptable behavior.

    But, as long as the media glorifies unacceptable behavior then kids will be drawn to it.

  16. The problems with role models are that people take one area they excel in and apply it to the complete persona. I think people should be chosen by what they do well at and be taught to recognize to know the difference in what to emulate. You can pick a family member, a local friend or a wealthy star/athlete and any combination thereof and still end up screwed up and let down if you're not taught that a person isn't necessarily living the perfect life because they made a lot of money or do something well.


    Guy A donates to charities and done tons of volunteer work but ends up being charged with spousal abuse. Does this suddenly make his charity work fruitless or any less important because he was a screw up in other parts of his life? No, just be smart enough to know that you can learn something positive from his charity work as well as learn an important lesson about his home life.

  17. ^Well put!
    ---The internet is the father of the electronic lynch-mob---

  18. He is still the best golfer in the world. They aren't paying him all this money for what he does off the links. I think people should mind their own business. The only person who deserves an apology from Tiger is his wife.

  19. Some great thoughts in here. Hopefully, as others have said, it will be a lesson and a slap in the face for people who think that celebrities and athletes should be role models of morality for kids. What nonsense. Jayhawkk I totally agree with what you posted about recognizing what to emulate. It's common sense.

    Yeah, the story about what's gone on in his personal life is juicy but does it make me feel any different about Tiger Woods as a golfer? Not really. In fact, I think I'm going to go and buy a few bottles of his Gatorade product and relable it as "F*%# Fuel".
