Good point, the American people’s wants are their needs. Reagan said that in American “perception is reality”.
That has yet to be determined.
Next thing you’ll be telling me is he scored 100 points in one game.
But golf is not just about the integrity of the game; it is also about the integrity of its players.
Perhaps now the 100 Billion pound elephant in the room will be discussed.
Tiger Woods is a Performance Enhancing Drug User.
Sportswriters are terrified of the issue and his peers on the PGA Tour are either privately very upset, or just accept it as a trade off because since Tiger came on the scene everyone is making a LOT more money.
I’ll tell you one guy who is likely seething in his own juices over this, Jack Nicklaus. It’s time for this whole facade to fall now, he’s cheated on his wife and he cheats at his sport.
I’m not defending the guy but here’s some amateur psychology.
Earl was a huge influence on the kid I believe.
Earl died in 2006.
Aren’t a lot of these bimbo eruptions starting right after that?
i was hoping for the same thing.
He hasbeen great with the perssbut never answering questions, i hope that continues as well.
Pretty much the same as you.
Wow, you are so right. Tiger is such a victim. Let’s all feel sorry for him. LOL!
So would you.
True dat. Woods was brought up with a golf club in his hand, and now he finds that he can’t be much of a husband.
Never got those skills, they are all in his 9 iron.
He and his family will get on the way they have to. I laugh though at how unkind people can be at other’s tragedy.Obviously most have never had tragedy in their own lives, or else they would not be that way in relation to the issue.
I read a comment from one of the women who said her affair with him started in 2003 when he was engaged.
I have a hard time believing that, for many reasons.
First, performance enhancers would have negligible benefit in golf. It’s simply not that physically demanding of a sport.
Second, while Tiger has increased significantly in size since he turned pro, he hasn’t really gained all that much in distance (nor is he the longest hitter on tour, or close to it). What distance he has gained, if any, can largely be explained by his swing changes. But these swing changes weren’t undertaken to give him an edge in distance, he did them to make him more consistent and so his swing wouldn’t hurt his back (now legs) as much.
Third, Tiger is the richest athlete in the world. As such, he has some of the best trainers/nutritionists in the world advising him on what to eat. Tiger’s workout and diet are very regulated. Under these circumstances, most people with average to above-average genes could look like Tiger. And I say this as someone who lifts weights four times a week and keeps in pretty good shape.
Fourth, even before the PGA implemented a drug-testing program, Tiger voluntarily did drug testing because people raised suspicions like yours.
I’m not saying it’s impossible, just that it’s hard to believe. The benefits a golfer would get from drugs are not enough to outweigh the risk of getting caught. If you think it’s bad with the adultery right now, drugs would destroy his career.
So would I what?
Did not say he was a victim.
I just don’t feel like jumping on the band wagon to denigrate him.
We’re still very much Puritan, Captain, while secretly wishing we were in Tiger’s paws!
“Oh man, you dont think he was doing the dog, too?:
My first thought, too: He’s a sociopath.
The man is a serial adulterer. This was not some “mistake” he made in a moment of weakness. This is a deliberate pattern.
“I feel sorry for Elin. It seems like she did care for him.”
I’d heard that although she liked him from the beginning, and that he pursued her, at first she thwarted his advances. She didn’t want to be thought of as a gold digger. She finally gave in, trusted him, and look where it got her.
EXCLUSIVE: Lingerie Photos Of Tiger Woods’ Mistress
Jamie Jungers, who is telling friends she had an affair with the golf champ lasting two years, is a model for Trashygirls.com, an entertainment company connected to the well-known Hollywood boutique Trashy Lingerie.
Iam not a tiger fan. I haven;t watch a sports program for over 15 years. I have seen enough tragedy ( altough not of this partuicular brand)in my life to know what its like, and this thing with Tiger and Elin is a trgaedy. I cannot glorify in the suffering of others or castigate others who are deeply suffering.
And folks should know better than to do so.Its not rationalization.
Good luck with your prejudices, we all have them, but this is not one I happen to have.
“Is tramp too strong a word...?
I was going with “floozy”.
My thoughts too.
It is just wrong to string along multiple women at one time who believe that you really love them, when all you want is a quickie. Any woman who has been the target of such duplicity will tell you that it is a very sick and cruel thing to be subjected to and scars you for a very long time.
For me, it’s not a live and live type of thing. Tiger is a cruel, unfeeling, uncaring and deceiving human. He’s left a trail of carnage in his wake regardless of whether or not he ever got married. Being married just makes it all the more tragic.
He is an abuser of women.
If he’s that desperate for sex without commitment, then he should just pay a hooker.
Tiger’s a piker compared to pro-basketball players.
“No crime was committed by him,...”
He broke up at least two marriages, clear moral crimes.
Or, we could ask the question another way: Why are all these white women willing to cheat with him? No Asian mistresses, so far...
If Elin were my daughter, I'd want her to have peace of mind. That can only happen if she leaves him. He doesn't care about her or he wouldn't have been with sluts while she was pregnant.
” Is tramp too strong a word, or would that be the appropriate name of someone who’s sleeping with a married man?”
If “Tramp” is appropriate for her, then the term would be far too mild a word for Tiger.
Amen to that.
Last chance to salvage some of the image. Plus I suspect these skanks have LOTS more on Tiger than just skankiness. Such as, maybe, drug use, transporting prostitutes across state lines (in his private jet) and so on.
It takes money to shut that stuff up.
For some reason, a couple of people don't grasp that fact.
I agree with you 100%. Some people are not cut out for marriage. And remember, his Father started fooling around before he died. But at least he had the decency to divorce his wife. Anyone remember that?
My job has me sitting at a desk for eight hours a day in front of a computer, yet I still go to the gym all the time and regularly get asked what my workout is by random people. Wanting to bulk up (or just generally stay in good shape) is not necessary for your job. The man is not just a sociopath, but likely a narcissist (often associated with being a sociopath) as well. Is it any wonder that such a person would want to “bulk up” without needing to for their job?
Children rarely get it.
All the facts aren't out yet.
And what about the potential for passing HIV to the children during birth?
Tiger, you are scum.
Very well put.
Look where it got her? Are you serious? She’ll have more money than she’ll ever know what to do with, two beautiful children and she’s so young and gorgeous (and rich), she will find love again hopefully with someone who will love her completely.
Oh, please, don’t bore us with this nonsense about how he’s a gladiator. He’s a golfer, for God’s sake, not a warrior. And no man needs more than one woman. Any healthy woman can wear out any healthy man. A woman can have six o’s, or more, to a man’s one or two.
Why bulk up so late in life
Usually you start as a teenager
Didn’t seem to appeal to him in his 20s
Steroids also weaken the ligaments etc —Canseco was always getting hurt
I am wondering if his knee problems were a result of the juice
Most golfers get back problems not knee
There is moral crime in religion. No one has been punished for a moral crime since maybe the Scarlet letter days.But go ahead with it , LOL.
Maybe we need to carve an “A” for adulterer in both of Tigers cheeks so the scars will be there for all to see on the PGA tour?
Yes, so many are demanding satisfaction from the man, who have never been closer than the TV screen to him. Its a sad comment on the state of America.
