    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    The problem with going into rehab because your manager suggested it or because your wife gave you an ultimatum is that if you aren't doing it for YOU and because YOU want to, it won't stick. Nobody can make you change. You have to want it for yourself. Ask any alcoholic or drug addict, they'll tell you that. I don't presume to know his reasons but if they aren't because HE wants it, he's wasting his time.

Then the healing for those that have been hurt by his behavior (including himself) can begin.

    But, I'll stop now before I get booted off of FORT for sharing my thoughts.
    The point being if you go into rehab for your image whats the point, nothing done there will stick.

    Unless one has access to his medical records it's impossible to answer this question either way.

    I know a couple of people that have entered rehab only to appease a spouse/companion and realized once there they really had a problem and were able to kick their addiction.

    It doesn't work that way for most people, but that's wonderful that it worked for the peeps you know. Maybe it will work for Tiger. For Elin's sake, I hope it does.

    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    He went on his website and plainly apologized for the hurt his actions had caused his family and other people. The guy knows he has a problem. That is a given. He has watched his wonderful life go down the toliet.
    Who cares how or who was the impetus that got him in to get help for the problem he knows he has? He gets help regardless of who is responsible for getting him there and regardless of what label name or description we put on the problem.
    The hitch will come in when he gets out of rehab and is faced with the same kinds of temptation that got him into so much trouble to start with. Will the rehab be enough to help him overcome his problems and pull his life back together? That is the major concern as I see it. JMO.
    Dear paranoid people who check behind their shower curtains for murderers, if you do find one, what's your plan?

    I concur. If I felt he was sincere then I'd be rooting for him. However, this smells of a PR move to me.

    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    I am skeptical in that after the sh!t hit the fan, and after Tiger posted on his website that he needed to focus on his family... there were rumors that he and Rachel U were still in contact. That didn't suggest someone who was trying to work on his marriage.

    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    But this is how all scandals are handled. Do something wrong, apologize for it and all is forgiven. We see this every day. Usually the apology does not come until it is made public, then the PR firms make their big bucks. I am just very tired of hearing the apologizing that it is falling on deaf ears. This is not just Tiger Woods but so many others is the past few years.

    I am trying to understand what you are saying. Do you think Tiger (and others) should stop with the apologies as the public no longer wants to hear them, or are you saying that the public should open up their ears and listen more carefully to the apology?

    I say the public just needs to mind thier own personal business. He didn't do anything to the public so he didn't need to apologize to the public in the first place (well maybe for depriving the public from seeing him play golf). What he did was to his family and they are the only ones he needs to atone to.
