Tiger's count continues skyward. In golf, this would be a bad thing.

Link

At least its better than reading politics or the economic news...

And here's the perfect song for The Death of Tiger's Career...

Do you worry that you're not liked
How long till you break
You're happy cause you smile
But how much can you fake
An ordinary boy an ordinary name
But ordinary's just not good enough today
Alone I'm thinking
Why is superman dead
Is it in my head
We'll just laugh instead
You worry about the weather and
Whether or not you should hate
Are you worried about your faith
Kneel down and obey
You're happy you're in love
You need someone to hate
An ordinary girl an ordinary waist
But ordinary's not good enough today

Doesnt anybody ever know that the worlds a subway

This has probably been rolled over a ton in other threads.
But, I kind of feel bad for him. If he's an addict then he has a problem. Unfortunately this kind of addicting is hard to forgive by your spouse.
I live with an addict. (not sex. and I guess that could be a good or bad thing for me). But one will go to great lengths to feed their addictions. And bad things happen.

IF it truly is an addiction, then he needs to get help. If he's just a schmuck, I have little sympathy for him. For his wife, I have tons of sympathy, either way.

Indeed. If he's out to see how many chicks he can score with, he's a prick - plain and simple. And he won't be able to reach Wilt Chamberlain's record. So he needs to give up.

Hopefully his wife can raep him in court, big time.

Honestly, since there are kids involved, I'd rather see them work it out in private, and go on to be a happy couple. I don't expect that to happen.

OMG they procreated? I was not aware of that.

Well, I hope she's able to take buckets of his $ without long, vicious court battles, for the kid's sakes. I have no tolerance for cheatin' cheatersons of either sex. If the relationship is ****ed, end the goddamned relationship and then go play the field or whatever.

He's a golfer. One of the best ever at a sport I like playing a little, and can't stand watching. Why am I supposed to care who he screws?

Because, you can't pay attention to the clowns in DC if you are paying full attention to this sort of crapola! And that's the way DC wants it

His career will only suffer if it affects his game. Once the media moves on to another breaking story, people will cease to care.

Hopefully he doesn't get the ugly Kobe tattoo.

Luddite, they had a prenuptial agreeement. She will get what she signed up for in her marriage contract and go on down the gold brick road. I have heard between 30% and 50%. He will have to learn to live on $500 million and whatever he can scrape together playing golf.

He obviously brought this on himself but who knows, competing on the golf course may be his only escape from here on out.

There was a cartoon poking fun at Tiger today. A US law official, announcing that it would be easier and cause less paperwork all those women who hadn't slept with Tiger would come forward.

I did notice that in the OP's link, that most of the accusations aren't confirmed. I wonder how many more will turn up and how many are people trying to catch a ride on a gravy train or get some media attention.

I do feel sorry for his soon to be ex-wife and children though.

Did you see the "model" that went on The Today Show this morning? Not really that cute and overtly made up. From what I've seen so far things would suggest he's more of a sex addict, or simply a healthy male with money that doesn't understand that when you get married, unless you and your spouse agree to an open sexual relationship, that sampling the smorgasboard is kind of a no-no.

Just wait... he'll go to sex therapy/rehab. $20 says that one story that says he's going to quit golf at her request to save the marriage ... she'll eventually end up filing a divorce petition. And it really makes SENSE for her to do so. Even if some of the unconfirmed trysts turn out to be bogus, there's probably others that simply don't want to come forward that spent a night with him. And I agree with the poster that said "who cares?" I really don't, except I find it amusing how corp ad culture will sell a "wholesome" image of these stars and then when their life doesn't match the image they run away.

Since he's been ****ing porn stars/*****s, there's a high likelihood he's brought home the Gift That Keeps on Giving, too. Once his wife gets tested for everything in the alphabet, she's gonna be 3X as mad as she is now.

His European endorsements have already hit the back door and the America COs have pulled his ads. The poor Schmucker may have to live off the $10mil annually he makes golfing for a while.

His Tiger Jam in Vegas has raised $15mil since 1996. Today they announced that he has never dropped a dime for a charitable cause in Vegas. All the money goes elsewhere, and he does have good charities.

The Vegas newspapers also ripped Tiger for tipping $10. to limo drivers that he uses for half a day. Mike Ditka is the gold standard for tippers, $50. to everyone who parks his car, opens a door or hands him a drink. Same is true about Matt Damon.
