Sorry Tiger Woods 'paid $65k for sex with prostitutes'
The Daily Telegraph ^ | December 13, 2009 | Jessica Halloran

Posted on 12/13/2009 2:17:16 PM PST by myknowledge

TIGER Woods rocked the world of sport yesterday by announcing he was giving up golf indefinitely in an attempt to save his marriage.

Just hours after one of his 12 mistresses appeared on US breakfast television revealing intimate details of their affair, Woods admitted for the first time he had been unfaithful to his wife and said he was putting his career on hold.

"After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father and person," Woods said in a statement on his website.

The shock decision has major ramifications for golf. Woods dominates the sport and is responsible for a large part of the corporate sponsorship that underpins the PGA tour's burgeoning prizemoney pool.

Whoa. $65k for 10 'hookers'? Tiger must know how to shack up with other 'tigresses'.

65K?

His wife is going to cost him millions and he might not ever "sleep" with her again.

I like to think of the mischief I could get up to if I had $500 Million.

But clearly...if the reports are true...he does have a problem.

imho, Tiger Woods' PR firm wrote the statements attributed to him.

While he spends wildly on 'escorts,' Mr. Cheater & Cheapskate begs for free meals from restaurants.

. VIP madam Michelle Braun said she sent at least four escorts on pay-for-sex dates with Woods, six times from late 2006 to 2007, charging him more than $65,000 in total.

 

I don't know if I believe this from what I've been hearing he  is to cheap . I saw an Interview with one of his "girlfriends" and she said they broke up after a year and a half when she asked him for some monetary help.

I really don’t think rehab will cure him.

His wife is better off with the children and the money.

Tiger, I’m sorry to say, will continue to spiral till he flames out totally.

Maybe Tiger is just looking ahead and trying to qualify for some Democratic Political office. You can’t get in unless you can get off the porch and play with the big boys (Spitzer).

Tiger Woods. Next mayor of Chicago?

“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from golf”.
Translation: “After getting caught cheating on my wife and being dishonest with my sponsors and fans, I have to decided to get my arse atta here, until this whole thing blows over.”
When talk of his “comeback” surfaces, why would anyone think he is going to be able play like he did before? Golf is a game of intense concentration. Distraction and the demise of his public image will be his downfall. Even Tiger’s level of arrogance and seeming self importance won’t be enough to salvage his career. He’s done, one way or another.
Work on his marriage? How’s that workin’ for ya, Tig? Elin is moving to Sweden and has hired a divorce lawyer.

Since the Super Bowl last year, I’ve been seeing more and more stuff like that written about Ben Roethlisberger. Several bartenders have been in the press saying that he comes into their bars and expects to drink for free. He even told a reporter that when he goes into a bar, people text their friends and within 20 minutes there will 300 people in the bar - so he thinks he should be comped. He’s making a few enemies on the Pittsburgh bar scene, that’s for sure.

He’s right. He, and anyone with him should drink for free.

If they think not, he should leave and go to the next closest bar. Then the bartender would have lots of room to sweep up and wash glasses.

Sorry, but you are wrong. There’s no written law that says he gets to drink for free just because he’s Ben Roethlisberger. As a former server myself, I can tell you that no matter who the hell you are, you offer to pay. Nine times out of ten, you’ll be comped anyway. But if you act like an ass and just walk out, the bar will be entitled to call the cops.

He can ask, but if he has to ask, the bartender is either stupid, or a jerk.

With cellphones and texting these days, he’s right, he draws more of a crowd than a band would draw. And the club PAYS the band.

Obviously you’ve only been a server and not an owner.

You know what they say. When you pay a prostitute, you are not paying for the sex. You are paying her to leave afterward.

That's so petty. All he has to do is make the first drink last 20 minutes... then he'll get offered freebies by the fans until closing time.

And he was a gorgeous wife.

Not too repressed by his Dad was he.

A shame all around.

Sad.

This cost him a LOT more than $65K.

His Wife, His Children, His name and damaged his career.

So, He is worth 1-billion. I am still sorry for what he has done to his life, and for what?

Very Sad.

I agree... unfortunately so... I actually thought that his ties to his father (who I thought taught him ethics) was not only great, but the over-riding effect in his life (what a joke)! Gads, was I not only wrong - oh well, I guess it’s time to put all those fantasies to rest and accept that almost all of those that get rich tend to become narcissists.

Really sorry to see this though - Jack Nicklaus will continue to be the greatest golfer no matter what this idiot does in the future. He became rich and famous and was a most honest and family oriented man...

Tiger...just go away!

Oh how hard the lofty elevated fall from grace and adulation’s.

When the day arrives for the decent of Obama I would suggest that any delicate figurines, glassware, souffle’s etc. be placed in a shock proof area.

When Obama falls elephants will jump.

When Obama falls redwood forests will shake.

When Obama falls millions of pregnant women all over the planet will break water.

When Obama falls California will have a new 1000 mile beach, on its eastern coast.

As a server, you don't necessarily own the bar but are stuck doing the heavy lifting for whatever celebrity happens to be there. As a college student I served John Everett (Rams) at a restaurant one night. He was great and left a great tip.

I always cheered him when he played.

NEW Zealand sports broadcaster Sky TV will screen an eight-minute interview with Tiger Woods, where the under-fire golfer claims family values mean everything to him. The interview was conducted in Melbourne during last month's Australian Masters, and sees Woods talk about the importance in his life of his wife and family.

The guy must be a compulsive and pathological liar.

Work on his marriage? How is that going to work exactly?

Tiger: Elin, I’ve been screwing around on you behind your back every single chance I’ve had for the past several years, but now that I’ve been caught I promise from now on I’ll be really really good to you.

Elin: Talk to my lawyer, and keep your checkbook handy.

Well, if Tiger cheats normal middle class business people out of money they work hard for - and he has more to waste on two bit whores then - that makes him a liberal...

You’re right! He will never change...actually, I would expect him to get his divorce and become a daily episode in the tabloids. His reputation is gone and his only out is to become the “Daily” of golf. I really just don’t give a damn about him at this point. He is simply an asshole that turned his back of a beautiful wife and two kids! He deserves all the negative press that he is going to receive.
