    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    I agree this should not have gone public. If you look at the past few months, not just with Tiger Woods, there have been numerous apologies about things that were said months ago, acts from months ago and now that it was made public we are seeing the apologies. I do not believe half of the apologies. If the person was really sorry the apology would have been made immediately and not when someone else made it public.
    ******
    I think the incident with Tiger Woods is a private matter and he does not need to apologize to me.

    Hopefully this clears up my opinion

    You are so right Tigerusty but we live in a society where the public feels they are owed their pound of flesh.

    I couldn't agree more. I really doubt if people know how to mind there own business anymore. I' don't get where this attitude that we need to concern ourselves with other peoples personal business comes from anyway?

    I refuse to watch another tournament until Tiger returns to the field of play.

    Of course, nothing like a sex scandal to get people worked up. I wonder how many even watched Woods play or have the slightest interest in golf? The real golf fans I know are only concerned (and pissed) with the fact that Woods is temporarily out of the game. My husband and I were watching the last couple holes of a tourney this weekend on TV and chuckling about how dull professional golf is going to be without Tiger. It's like watching the Caps without Ovechkin or the Cavs without LeBron.

    Yeah my boyfriend is going to lose whats left of his mind if Tiger isn't back soon. This is just proof of how dull golf was until Tiger gave life to it.

    AJane and MsDiva I agree golf this weekend was a big bore. The one that they thought would be able to carry golf choked on the last day. I don't believe Tiger is the be all end all of golf but what he provides is excitement and a talent to do what others haven't been able to. Also with Tiger in the field it makes the others step up their game if they want to compete and ight now I don't see any urgency from anyone to do that.

    I think it comes from the advertisers who do their darnedest to humanize the celebrity... They want us to feel as if we personally know these guys and connect with them so that we will go out and purchase their product...

    The attitude seems to have been born of the idiotic notion that celebrities "owe us", and that they wouldn't have the money and fame without us. My take on the matter is that we, in turn, owe them for the entertainment they provide us with. I can't imagine how dreary life would be without books, music, tv, movies and, for those who like such things , sports. To my mind it makes the whole concept of "owing" a wash and therefore their personal lives are no more our damn business than our personal lives are theirs.

    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.
    Oh, please, he had his PR person write it. Do I think he means it. Heck no. it's all done just to be PC. Do I honestly think it is heartfelt.....No I do not. I think he is trying to save his endorsements.

    IF he was trying to save his endorsments he would have personally himself been out talking to the media. Whether heartfelt or not it not for me to judge because he owes me nothing period. Me getting into Tigers personal life would be like him nosing into mine and I would tell him not your business boy take a flying leap and I would expect him to say the same to me.
