Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments Wonder how sincere his wife will find this...... so i guess this is for the fans..... shouldn't his private life be just that, private? (yeah i know, the media and his career has already made his life public.........) thoughts?

Dr. Detroit | 6019 comments I'm wondering how - while he was randomly and wildly dipping his wick over the past several years - did he ever think he wouldn't get caught?

He. Is. An. Idiot.

Matt | 819 comments Maybe i'm too jaded, but I always interpret pr events like this as the person is apologizing for having gotten caught...

Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments EXCELLENT point!

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) Maybe it's the cynical bastard in me but every time a celebrity makes an apology of this kind, I think of that episode of The Simpsons where Bart has to apologize to Australia. "No problem-o. I'm an expert at phony apologies..."

This is nothing more than a ploy so that he can get his marketing machine moving again.

I don't follow golf AT ALL, but has Tiger been held out as some sort role model to kids at all? If he has and willingly accepted that role, I'm wondering if some sort of apology to the youngsters is in order, although I'm not sure how you'd explain energy-drink-fueled rough sex with porn stars, saucy tarts, and nightclub trollops to a bunch of grade-schoolers.

Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments BunWat my point exactly! ...... not sure why this IS our business..... but good point Clark....not sure how you sell this to the kiddies in apology form or explanation, but possibly with the millions of copies of his video games on sale they feel that that may be necessary in some shape or form....... not sure???

Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments Sports skills are sports skills, intellect is intellect and character is character they are not synonymous ...... sometimes they coincide with each other but they are not required to exist simultaneously.

Phil | 11628 comments Tiger could benefit by being more like John Daly regarding his personal life.

Sure, Daly has his faults -- he's alcoholic, has hit people, has a gambling addiction and has been married four times -- but he owns them!

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I agree with Buns on this one. He's a golfer. He has to play golf. It's sad because I'm assuming the only reason he would apologize in public is for the PR value. So I don't believe him, even if he is genuinely sorry.

message 13: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Here's what bothers me about his planned news conference: it's before a hand-picked audience of golf journalists who have been known to fawn over Tiger, and won't give him grief, and, worse yet, Tiger will NOT take any questions after his statement.

His arrogance is stupefying, and that news conference will demonstrate what a phony he is.

I'm betting he gets caught planting his dick in another skank before Memorial Day.

Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments Hah I am not taking that bet!

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i am also with bun on this. i am humbled that in my life most of my personal failures have been somewhat contained within my family.

Youndyc | 1255 comments Kevin, right on.
Isn't it wonderful to *not* be a celebrity? For example, we don't have to get called idiots by every random individual with an opinion about our personal lives. And that's just for starters. There's also not having people following us as we take our children to school and then publicly reporting the address of the school our child attends. Etc. Etc. And, I do recognize he gets a lot of money for being that celebrity figure, but I don't think the exchange rate is at equilibrium.

As for the apology conference itself, I thought it wasn't so fake as all that. I am over the news coverage of it already. But to me it seemed that he's miserable and I think he's just trying to get some pieces of his life and empire righted again. I'm sure I'd be trying to do the same thing. Maybe not with a news conference - but then again, I'm not a celebrity.

Flora Smith (bookwormflo) I personally could care less about what Tiger Woods did, nor did I care he apologized. It had absolutely nothing to do with me. Its not like this was some rare event. He's not the first guy to cheat on his wife since the dawn of civilization, and I promise you he won't be the last. And most likely this won't be the last time he does it either. But thats not my concern either. If he wasn't a celebrity he wouldn't be in rehab either. Most ppl don't go to sex addiction rehab for cheating on their spouse the end up in the dog house instead.
