Tiger Woods Tiger Woods has announced he will have an intimate interview with a small number of media reporters this coming Friday.  I, for one, do not plan on giving a hoot and I hope you share the sentiment.  Mr. Woods is expected to offer an apology to the public and express remorse for his actions (multiple affairs reaching into the double digits, reportedly).

With the media circus that ensued, it’s no wonder he would feel terrible regret; his marriage is destroyed (whether or not Elin kicks him to the curb in the end), and as far as his career goes, only the future will tell.  None of this information is newsworthy or worth caring about.  The media is already so fueled by chronicling and tallying the sexual deviances of celebrities, there are hardly any other scandals making headlines, except for sudden deaths (RIP Alexander McQueen).            

Tiger Woods is not going to win back any admiration or respect from me by making a public appearance and apology.  I’m sorry for Elin and her children, but her obliviousness to the shaking fault lines in her marriage cuts my pity short.  She is the only person his apology possibly will matter to, but not to the general public who has not suffered at the expense of his pants dropping.

    • I agree one hundred percent Yana  - in the UK we have two big “sex scandals” - the England Football Team Captain cheated on his wife with a fellow players girlfriend and then another player also in the Premier League who is married to Cheryl Cole the singer in Girls Aloud  - so day by day we have had acres of trees destroyed so every inch of these tawdry scandals could be uncovered inch by inch -Toni Terry the wife of the England Captain is back with her husband and we have all seen the very public displays of affection with their children and the second affair seems like Miss Cheryl is going to divorce her errant husband as this is the second time he has been caught .....
      Both men earn obscene amounts of money two hundred thousand a week plus and endorsements and are high profile – it's just gross – thankfully John Terry the England Captain has been stripped of his role as he is not a good role model to the millions of young boys who idolise him ........
      I think as a nation we have fatigue over this  - sadly no one has told the newspapers !

    • I agree! I could care less about his apology to the public. I think the only reason he is apologizing out loud is to protect his financial assets.... again I don’t care!
      I do care about his poor little children tho and that is where his focus should/needs to be.

    • It really does not matter to me in the least about him and his sexual dalliances, he is just another putz in a common and recurring problem with some men who are on a huge ego trip...so sorry for the kids who do suffer because of a parent’s irresponsibility.

    • Personally - I blame the media in this whole debacle. JFK cheated on Jackie repeatedly, but no one would have dared breathe a word of it back then. So did FDR and Lyndon Johnson - as well as many of the most respected sports figures of their day. It didn’t affect their performance as president, ballplayers, etc., so it wasn’t considered newsworthy. The media is forcing the entire world to watch what should be a private matter. It hurts the public figure, it hurts their families - and, most importantly, it hurts the kids who look up to their idols. I’d rather see it kept private and let the children continue to believe that heroes can exist. Until the stories about Tiger became public, he was someone parents could encourage their children to emulate. I would MUCH rather have that than to hear about all his escapades.

    • I don’t plan on watching nor do I care he’s finally going to make a “public apology“.  The news said HE will be doing the speaking and NOT answering any reporter’s questions.  What does that tell you???  Exactly!

    • I absolutely agree Tiger’s apology should only matter to 1 person, his wife. His so called public apology is only to make himself feel better somehow. It’s hard to believe someone could be so cruel and deceitful to someone they‘re suppose to love and cherish. I just don’t know how he could live with himself after what he did to his wife!  

      And I don’t buy that sex-addiction stuff in the least. Someone as (assumably, but yet not) smart, well-disciplined and self-contolled as Tiger, makes choices. He knew what he was doing each and every time he did his thing, he made a choice to do the wrong thing each time! Nobody’s perfect, I know. And everyone makes mistakes ...but, come on, that many!  I’m sorry but there is absolutely no excuse or forgiveness in my book for what Tiger has done to his wife—how absolutely disrespectful and humiliating.  Although I feel bad they have children together, I truly hope Elin does not stay with him!  He does not deserve to be her husband, or anyone’s for that matter!

    • It’s great to see that you guys are not interested in what he has to say.  Such a pathetic situation. Disgusted how many affairs he had.  

      But for some reason, our society accepts such behavior in our male celebrities, but not our leaders.  Given the ratings for televised PGA events with Tiger vs without, I’m afraid the majority of people don’t agree with us.  Many will be watching.  

      Kobe Bryant “rebounded” from a rape accusation, and Tiger will, too.

    • I was sitting at the sushi rest. during lunch. They had three televisions on three different channels, all were broadcasting his apology.  

      I had to get up and ask them to switch stations.  

      Do we have nothing else to watch? Seriously, what’s wrong the the media?

    • I could care less. I’ve lost all respect for him. He did this right before one of the tournaments sponsors that was the first to dump him. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
