Global consulting and outsourcing firm Accenture is ending its sponsorship of Tiger Woods, saying the golfer is "no longer the right representative" after the "circumstances of the last two weeks."

No biggie - He can be the new spokes-woodie for Trojan brand condoms.
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.
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
Check out this cover letter written by Cheetah himself
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.
No you s*s**r was my ex. Get a life fan boy.
“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.
Earl has to be rolling in his grave.
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?
One day you are way up..the bubble breaks!
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"...
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.
