Fan boy, steroid boy, fan boy... and so forth.

Why? Why do you seem to always include "boy" in your insults? Do you have a problem with males?

Additionally, what is your fixation on Tiger all about? I mean, its bad, but he isn't your ex or anything. Geeezzz...

Ahead of the Bell: Kaufman downgrades Accenture/ Associated Press, 12.09.09, 08:05 AM EST

NEW YORK -- A Kaufman Bros. analyst downgraded consulting and outsourcing firm Accenture Ltd. on Wednesday, saying that although the company has characterized a pick-up in consulting activity as "remarkable," he thinks the recovery in client bookings and revenue has been only "modest."

Analyst Karl Keirstead cut his rating on the Ireland-based company to "Hold" from "Buy" and trimmed his earnings and sales estimates through fiscal 2011.

Forbes

I doubt Woods cares, has enough money, world's best golfer at this point...talent pick-ups have been slow, dropping Woods won't help their slowdown improve any.

Without the work for Accenture, maybe Cheetah will have more time for the Tiger Woods Foundation and the Character Counts foundation. http://charactercounts.org/getstarted/funding/grant-opportunities.html

Hmmm... Phil Mickselson’s wife was ill and he took two months off in 2009 from the PGA tour and shot lower scores than Tiger at Doral, The Masters, The U.S. Open, Shanghai HSBC, The Tour Championship.

“Character Counts” is the name? You have to be kidding? LOL!

Does he bring in Phil Mickelson to be the role model for the kids?

Why? Why do you seem to always include "boy" in your insults? Do you have a problem with males?

On another thread Frantzie said: "To: libh8er
Is he a child molester too? Nothing would suprise me with this guy...[earlier]"Do they think he is a child molester? His poor wife and kids. Steroid users are often child molesters too."

I agree with you, StolarStorm, would say there might be more going on here (FR posts) than meets the eye.

Remember the FR "Loose Lips" thing! Careful.

This is an especially interesting story because of the way the sports media and the mainstream media covered it up for many years. We’re now exposed to the truth because of the tabloids. I think it would be good if the National Enquirer buys the NY Times and investigates the health plan.

The Tiger fixation is good to remind us how corrupt the mainstreams are.

The beginning of the end of an otherwise spectacular career and athlete.

Maybe he “wasn’t the right representative” all along. What made them think he was something other than what he’s turned out to be. Could it be the media “created” his persona and these people “fell” for it? Tiger’s fault? Nope. So they sit back judgmentally and drop support for something that never existed in the first place. Put your faith in a media myth and that’s what happens ... you get embarrassed. One day the same will happen with this President ... he too is a myth, created from the same hype and buzzwords. And someday they’ll abandon him just as quickly ... I wonder what it will take?

Everyone loses. Some more than others. Never put all your Golden eggs in one basket--goes for advertising too. Nike, for instance, knows it only too well.

I first heard this term on the Macintosh threads claiming that I’m a Mac “fan boy” and “gay”. All of this new to me as I am neither a boy nor gay.

It seems to be some silly put down. I attribute it to a lack of vocabulary on the part of the user.

This other person is acting like a Democrat in the same way they smeared Rush Limbaugh. Nice the fan boys use Dem tactics. “Fan boy” is a reference to Tiger’s fans not Tiger. It is pretty commonly know in the golf world. Fan boys are drooling fans.

Nope - he paid hookers more so he wouldn't have to wear anything. The "twofer" is more diseases for his wife and children. I wonder if his baby son has been checked for AIDS yet...

Trojan won't want him.

Maybe the DNC could use Tiger to advertise for "choice"...

Actually Rush smeared himself, so to speak. People were also shocked, dismayed, but supported, moved on and everyone lived to fight another day, probably even stronger. Then came Beck, who on the other hand, admits to being only "human", no great scholar, a recovering alcoholic, fights the fight, chooses his battles and leads an army against the Left.

Look at the same dup stories posted tonight on Tiger. More reads than on war (our fighting men and women), health care, other government and economic news.

Talent on the youth is often wasted, reality suddenly bites, not pretty. Age will define. Oh, well.

"I attribute it to a lack of vocabulary on the part of the user."

Or perhaps on the part of those who don't know what it means.

Here is the top definition on urbandictionary.com, it seems fairly accurate:

A passionate fan of various elements of geek culture (e.g. sci-fi, comics, Star Wars, video games, anime, hobbits, Magic: the Gathering, etc.), but who lets his passion override social graces.

And he can replace the Gatorade product line with some Adult Toy Lines.

Who knows, if he works the sleezy crowds at the Sex Toy Conventions, he might overtake the Doc Johnson line.

Yeah, but its not being used correctly here. He/she/it has been using that term for freepers all over the place. Seems like a kid having fun trolling us... or a mental case.

That will really make the tournaments he may play in look good on National TV. It will be a circus when he comes out of hiding.

You sure post a lot about Phil Mickelson. Interesting. Are you a fan boy? Or related?

I know -- Fran seems to go ballistic over Tiger woods. Come on -- I never watch golf and am hardly a Tiger fan, but realise that Woods is good at playing golf and I HATE the media circus that is forming around this -- he was a private person and they're swarming like sharks over everything. This is a private matter.

Fran seems to have a lot of schadenfreude

Accenture needs to go a safer route. A sponsor that they know is not going to screw up. I have it. Bugs Bunny!!!

Hey, if Met Life can have Snoopy, why can’t Accenture get Bugs Bunny? He’s as cool as Tiger is (was) and is not going to screw up!!! If not Bugs Bunny then maybe Foghorn Leghorn.

What are you a bag boy at some golf course that sells Nike gear or an Accenture employee or a dial tone sales person for AT&T? If you are a bag boy at the local course - reshine my shoes and use the finest chamois.

Loads of great guys on the PGA that are not slime like Toger. Steve Stricker, Kenny Perry (fired his caddy in a sleazy way but beyond that), Nick Watney who beat Tiger in Shanghai, Sean O’Hair, Lucas Glover, Stuart Cink, Padraig, Rory McIlroy, Vijay, Ernie. Loads of great guys who do not throw clubs, swear and act like an a*s.

Phil is number #2 right now and was beaten Tiger like a red headed step child at the tourneys I mentioned.

Ditto 59 year old Tom Watson at British Open and 16 year old amateur Matteo Manassero from Italy who both beat a club throwing and swearing Tiger Wood’s a*s at the British Open. Tiger missed the cut and left the second day. The 16-year old had a real shot at winning.

Matteo is the kid on the right. Another teen phenom like 20-year old Rory McIlroy.

bag boy? Again, you sure like to use such terms. Sorry, but my IQ is too high to watch sports without falling asleep from sheer boredom. I could care less about Tiger as a golfer. But I don't like people throwing out horrible accusations like "he is a molester". That kind of talk will get you sued. Be careful and have some decency.

Your "bad boy" sports shtick is rather lame and seriously immature. Grow up.
