    I fully understand that someone wants to make amends / goes through 12 step programs, but I think to call "womanizing" or "mannizing" a sickness / disorder that needs treatment just serves as an affront to people out there battling real sickness and disorder.

    His sickness, like he stated, was one of entitlement.
    Far different than a drug addict trying to purge his / her body from drugs.
    First of all I don't care if Tiger is boinging 13 women. He is just doing what a lot of athletes do, taking advantage of freebies. I personally think the only thing he regrets is getting caught because it messed up his perfect little world. Do I need to hear an apology from him. Heck, no. Does he really need to explain himself. Heck, No. What he should do is treat his public with a little respect which from one of the sports writers I listened to on the radio, Tiger does not treat his fans well. The fans helped make him rich and he should show his gratitude for that. What did surprise me is hearing this sports writer say that Tiger owes an apology to all the kids that have his poster up in their rooms. Come on, What little kid would have a poster of Tiger in his or her room??? A football poster, a baseball poster, a soccer poster, a wrestling poster, a Nascar poster I understand but a poster of Tiger Woods in their bedroom, I don't think so.

    In fairness, we can be "addicted" to anything that we choose to.
    His choice came from entitlement.
    I just bristle when people start saying Sex Addiction - get thee to rehab!

    Why can't people just exercise some self control?

    BTW, I know a lot of kids who really look up to Tiger, just like they look up to all the other athletes out there.

    Part of the 12 Step process
    12Step.org for Sobriety, Strength and Serenity
    Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all
    Step 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

I gave up on the Tiger saga long ago because to me, a cheating scandal just isn't newsworthy anymore, even for someone like Tiger and even in this type of situation. Who cares? Especially when more women come forward to cash in on their 15 seconds of shame, and all say how they're betrayed and fake cry because they weren't the only one (besides his wife). I do get a kick out of the mistresses who keep coming forward and telling their stories and don't seem to want to let it die down. They're capitalizing off of it, and probably will continue to do so. And sorry, but anyone who gets Gloria Allred to defend them has no credibility with me. I agree with those who say Tiger owes those women nothing, they owe his wife an apology for sleeping with her husband when they knew he was married. So let them keep crying and now that Tiger has addressed the issue, let's see them try to move on and stay out of the spotlight. I can smell the book and movie deals coming already.
    She must be sitting on go all the time for the next scandal so she can grab her a client. That chick she was representing today was so fake she couldn't even get a good tear to fall.

    This is the one that claimed she got pregnant twice, right? He's had so many, I lost track. Anyway, I think even her own mother said she was a pathological liar. In an interview I saw with her, she looked all smiles and like she enjoying it. Gloria is the Hollywood equivalent of an ambulance chaser. She really thinks her client deserves an apology, despite the fact Tiger said the same thing to all however many he had? This chick was a late comer, wasn't she? I just remember a few weeks ago people rolling their eyes that Gloria had to call a press conference because she had text messages from Tiger (ooo, big deal) and something about her face being on a golf ball and she thought it promoted domestic violence against herself? Funny again she didn't mention any of the other women whose faces were on them.

    Tiger is a better person than I am. There is no way I would apologize to the public for something that isn't any of their business to begin with. I understand the wife and family but everyone else I would tell to get bent.

    Those skanks need to shut up and crawl back into the hole they crawled from under.

    I so totally agree with you.

    I also sincerely believe the only reason Tiger is in rehab is to cover his own "ass" and look somewhat sympathetic to the public and to appease his sponsors. From hearing from some writers who cover golf, Tiger is not as nice as his image implies.

    If I got pregnant by Tiger there is no way I would abort it.......free ticket to ride there. I agree Gloria is an ambulance chaser type of lawyer. Yes she is a latecomer so she thinks apparently that makes her more credible.

    Tiger owes no one an apology but his family he isn't hired by the American people to represent them he is an excellent golfer whom these companies saw as dollar signs and so they lavished him with big bucks so they could make bigger bucks and Tiger would have been stupid to turn down their generous offer.

    He said he owed an apology first to his wife and family and then to all of those who believed in him. To me, that would be the fans who paid money to see him play and who bought the products from the companies who endorsed him as well as people who simply bought stock in general in companies tied to Tiger which took a fall when he did as well as the people involved in his charity. Those people have a direct vested interest in him. I believe he probably was including the millions of golf fans who enjoy watching him on tv as well, but that is more open for debate.

    He then went on to say that he was a private person (or that is what inside he wants to be), and what he and his wife said belongs between them.
    I agree with these two things whole-heartedly.

    Whatever we call it, the man has had a problem. He absolutely had the world by the tail ( it's a pun, but best words I can use), and he absolutely kept on with his problem until he self-destructed.
    It appears to me that there might be some very deep rooted psycholical problems that therapy is attacking and which may be one reason he is so willing to go back for more treatment, and is also a possible reason why his wife hasn't left.
    Because he ruined his life, I think it runs deeper than, "I work hard, I have a lot of money, and I deserve to fricky-fricky with restaurant, manager, and porno-type women."

    I think so too. I mean, how old was he when he was on The Mike Douglas Show?... (or was it Merv?). Three years old? I see his life as kind of akin to a child actor. Many of whom have had there own share of problems.

    Cheers.
