    Default Tiger's Apology

    I expected less - got more.

    Sure it was scripted, but I sort of appreciated that he didn't make excuses.

    What did you think?

    That whole event couldn't have been more scripted.

    It was as good as one could expect it to be. Of course it was scripted. What idiot wouldn't have a prepared speech, especially if you're not taking questions?

    I think he came across sincere and remorseful. Whether he is or not of course is anyone's guess, and honestly, none of my business, as it's a personal matter between him and his wife/family. He's a golfer, not a politician.

    edit: and the hugging thing at the end was fairly awkward.

    Not just the speech. The attendees, the armed guards, everything.

    The entire thing was a live theater performance. He has probably been working on every word, facial expression, body movement, dramatic pause, etc. with a PR firm, voice coach, and other specialists for a month or so. Pretty much what I had expected, and IMO he would have had more credibility if he had done this a week or so after the whole mess initially came to light- and if he would have subjected himself to the gauntlet of reporter questions. No matter what he says, I think that Elin clocked both him and his SUV with a golf club. I think the only thing he is really sorry about is that he was caught. He made his billion, and I think it will be a long time before anyone will take him seriously again.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I think he gave his family, his fans and his sponsors what they were owed: an abject apology that made no excuses and blamed no one but himself.

    Some people are criticizing him for not getting on the firing line in front of a bunch of reporters, but why should he? If he opens that door, they`ll never stop trolling through the muck and the press will feel entitled to question him on every rumor or innuendo that comes up. He apologized and set the record straight. Now he should be allowed to close the door on this and get on with his life.

    Ironically, if it was me, I would`ve done the exact opposite. I would`ve took the stage and been completely honest. `You know what, I`ve thought about it long and hard and I realized I can`t live up to the image of me that was being sold. I`m not a monogamous person or family man. I`m just a great golfer. I`m sorry for what I did and the people I hurt and I will make amends to those people privately, but at the end of the day, I can`t change who I am. That`s it. End of story.

    Given his marriage is quite likely toast, being honest would`ve free`d him up to live the rest of his life the way he chooses. In 5 years, he would`ve been beloved again as the world`s greatest golfer and ladies man<rogue with a host of new product endorsements befitting his new image. Think golf meets the rat pack.

    So often, people choose to be what others (their parents, their peers, their business partners) want them to be, instead of living life on their own terms. If Tiger should`ve learned anything from this, he should`ve realized that you can`t live a life that is a lie out of obligation to others. He may be rich and great at what he does, but he won`t be truly happy within himself until he figures that out.

    I think his whole "no domestic abuse happened" statement is a bunch of bs. The whole thing was scripted and I didn't learn anything new...

    I think the bit I laughed at was where he was stressing Elin wasnt to blame... damn fucking right she wasnt you complete and utter dirtbag, whether she did hit him or not! If this were a woman here, she would be the biggest slut on the planet.

    I have no idea how Elin will ever get passed this. If she does she is a more forgiving and stronger woman than I. Hearing once of an infidelity is bad enough, having 11 others coming one after another must have been excruciatingly devastating and humiliating. I think after no 3 it would have been, "Bye bye Tiger... kiss my arse and hand over the dough!" She's young and beautiful enough to find better than a man who had zero respect for her, their love and their marriage.

    I guess he said what he and his PR people feel is should say to try and get his sponsorships back. As mentioned above, the main thing he is sorry for is getting caught!

    I understand they had to weld the umbrellas into the patio tables at that rehab facility and all that work they were doing to cover the facility fences with tarps was not to keep out the prying eyes of the paparazzi, but to cover over knot holes in the fence boards

    Count me as unimpressed. He rehearsed it and thought it was really cheesy how he would stare into the camera for full effect. I have no respect of Elin if she stays with him. You don't go off and do the things he did and clean it all up by going to sex therapy. Guess what? Guys love sex and love having sex with multiple partners. However when you get married you have to remain exclusive with your wife. It's called will power.

    Anyway I thought it was a sham and loved how he had to throw out there that he will be returning to his Buddhist roots. Oh have sympathy for me because I strayed not only from my wife but my religion.

    Once a cheater, always a cheater.

    All this did was open up the media can of worms that was thankfully starting to close. The man is finished. He will never be able to continue with his golf carrier without this silly event shadowing everything.

    The fact that it's really nobody's business what the guy does in his personal life seems to totally lost on every news outlet. Plus he's got that red head whore sobbing at her own press conferences that the media seem find so news worthy.

    The whole thing is a silly circus sideshow. Tiger needs to just go away.
