    Actually without public judgement, Tiger never would have gotten the endorsements in the 1st place. He was successful through endorsements because of his image and people judgement of him.

    For doing his job, not for his private life, which is absolutely none of our business.

    Nuh, uh. Tiger Woods was far more than just golf. His publicists, managers and himself... they chose to present him in a certain way.
    Celebrities choose to take on product endorsements, and as part of that, WHO they are becomes a part of what they endorse. The celebrity becomes the product in a sense. Tiger presented himself as a moral family man, and a person for kids to look up to.

    When that presentation is proven to be false, it is the public's business. TIGER made himself into this image for MONEY, no one forced it on him. He screwed up royally.

    Interest in Tiger has always been a combo of what he does and who he is. He and his dad created it that way.

    No oither golfer comes close to the image Tiger created for himself. And no other golfer will ever come close to being the golfer Tiger is. He is in a class by himself. And IMO it is possibly naive to think that any other golfer could in any significant way replace the best golfer in history.

    Tiger made golf what it is tioday and it is going to be interesting to see what--if anything--golf can do eithout him.

    My own suspicion is=--"not much."
    tjhe only inerest I've ever exhibited in golf has had to do with the incredible athlete Tiger is.


    Without him playing I couldn't care less. Living in an area where there are a lot of gold tournaments I know I am far from the only person who feels this way.

    I don't think that's a fair characterization.

    This all began--see thje beginning of the thread--as concern over Tiger's welfare after his accident. That was my reason for starting this thread.

    What has happened is that because of his accident there has been a slow but steady drip of revelations that no one who followed Tiger could have predicted.

    It started out as shock that any of this was true and has become disbelief that any/all of this is happening to someone who once had a reputation for the exact opposite.

    I hope all of the companies who pay him for endorsements will drop him if there were morals clauses in the contracts. If you play, you should pay.

    There would be a lot of atheletes without endorsments if there were morality clauses. Too bad morality clauses aren't the staple in everything if Tiger has to pay lets start from the top and work down.......what a fallout would happen.

    I would venture to say that should Tiger return to golf and he starts winning like he always does there will be companies clamoring to sponser him. They won't have to worry about presenting a good guy image.

    Actually morals clauses are standard for contracts for spokespersons..

    And some of the companies Tiger is spokesman for have stated they are looking at the morals clauses in the contracts to see what course of action they want to take.

    Heck there would be a lot of people unemployed if they had morality clauses in their employment contracts.
