Guardian Angel--hi. Earlier tonight I stumbeld across the NBC "Dateline" show which was all about Tiger tonight. If I'd known it was going to be on I would have said so here.Originally Posted by GuardianAngel;3766904;
I missed the first part but what I gleaned is that a lot of his "activies" occured in Las Vegas and people there really seem to be close-mouthed as long as it's a really big spender who keeps coming back.
He apparently had a rep as a party guy from when he first started in golf as an adult.
About why the women did't talk? It seems they were either pros or they really did care about him and would not betray him.
An amazing situation when you think about it....
I guess what happens in Vegas really does stay in Vegas.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon
I commend him for the humility he has shown, the step he has taken, and the path he is going to try and trod to mend the breech, to heal the hurt and damage, and to preserve his family.
It is too bad that by removing himself from the pro circuit, the golf industry will suffer such a financial blow, but his priorities are now in the right place. Such a step and the time devoted to her shows his wife in no uncertain terms what is really the most important thing in his life. If this marriage can be saved, he has made the best move he can to do it. My best wishes go with him!
Unless someone like you cares a lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

Not anymore. Tiger has singlehandedly destroyed that marketing campaign.Originally Posted by Lil Bit;3767080;
Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.
What I find amazing about the whole thing is NOW he is sorry? He is only sorry because he got caught! What an ass

Since he is what you bolded wonder what that makes all these upstanding husbands that are sitting in front of a monitor groveling over porn and wishing they were in the bed with. I would venture to say that people who are bashing the whey out of him have a problem at home they know nothing about. I learned a hard lesson a long time ago and that is watch what comes out of my mouth because I might have to live my words and in that situation I did. What I condemn someone else for may be the very thing I get taught a lesson by.Originally Posted by taracran;3767127;
What Tiger did was wrong and he had an image to uphold but sometimes our images get tarnished and we have to try and rebuild but nonetheless he is a human being with human failings just like anyone else and he should be afforded the same kindness and concern that we would want for ourselves and our family and friends. My brother who is now deceased did some things like Tiger has but nonetheless I loved him in spite of it and let him know that what he was doing was wrong but never bashed him.
IA. I've got to imagine she made an ultimatum, possibly not thinking he'd even consider giving up golf, and he took her up on it and did it. I completely disagree with all of the decisions he's made that have led him to where he is now but I have to say, my hat goes off to him for taking the indefinite break to try to fix his family. There are LOTS of repercussions about this situation that affect a lot of people but he did what was right for his wife and children and I have to commend him for that. To see the most famous athlete make a decision to leave the sport that got him to where he's at in order to try to fix his family...well, Tiger earned some points back with me for this.Originally Posted by Bloomers;3767123;
Like you, Bloomers, I wish them the best. Such a tough situation for Elin, but at least she'll be able to have him by her side and not traveling the world while they try to figure out where to go next.

I will say that what Tiger does now will effect my view of his character more than anythingg that has gone before. Anyone can make colossal mistakes. It is how they learn from and get through those mistakes that shows who they truly are,
This is where a few of the others will have to step up there game if they still want the big purses that they have had. It was never Tigers responsibilty to make sure the tour had great revenues he just so hapened to be the catalyst that got them there.Originally Posted by Bloomers;3767123;
