  1. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    Thanks, newtogolf.  You're right, I did miss that.  That crosses a line.  Whatever side of this argument you fall, I'm learning more and more that people will believe what they want to believe no matter what is said, done or displayed.  I guess that's called conviction.  Funny, that word is also the same word used when someone is found guilty of something.
  2. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    I'm sure you are a very fine and intelligent person, but you can't seem to grasp the difference between proof and suspicion.  I'm not going to re-list the items that are contained in this thread and have been published in medical documents that can lead one to be suspicious of PED use only to have you respond line-by-line with possible reasons why they might not apply to Tiger or anyone else for that matter.  I'm tired of that game.  And, I'm not going to ask you to prove a negative.  As you know, facts and opinions are different.  You can mix the two, but they aren't the same.  All I'm going to say is stop trying to interpret an opinion as fact.  Just stop.  It makes you look less intelligent than you probably are. 99% of the people who think Tiger Woods may, MAY, MAY have taken PED's hate him?  LOL.  I must be in the 1%, then.  I think your point might be valid, though.  I can believe there is a large % of people who believe that Tiger took PEDs who want to see him fail.  It might have to do with racism.  It might have to do with the enjoyment of watching the mighty fall.  It might be that some people just don't like his personality or he treated them rudely by not signing an autograph between holes.  Maybe they don't want to see Jack's record fall.  Who knows?  Whatever the reason, NO ONE can deny Tiger has been great for his sport and has been a source of excitement and interest during his career.  So was Dale Earnhardt, but not everybody loved him, either.  By the way, I also believe those same people who hate Tiger and want to see him fail don't care if the cause is PED's, infidelity, injury, swing changes or whatever the reason.
  3. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    Agreed.  There are plenty of other things listed in this thread that would lead one to be suspicious.  If there was hard proof that is public knowledge, then Tiger would already be banned.  So, it is just plain stupid to ask, "Where's your proof?"  OF COURSE, there is no proof that is available to the public.
  4. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    LOL. What's idiotic is believing he absolutely did not take banned substances just because there is no "court-worthy" evidence.  By the way, there are many things listed in this thread that could make one suspect.  I'm not going to re-list them.
  5. The Most Annoying Golf Partners

    Slow-play Joke Teller Guy. This guy has already caused you to fall 2 holes behind, but interrupts his pre-shot routine on the tee box for 5 minutes to tell his unfunny joke.  Meanwhile, you are uncomfortably watching the group finish up on the green behind you.
  6. The Most Annoying Golf Partners

    Haha.  Reminds of the guy I play with.  He doesn't have all those medical conditions during the same round, but he always shows up with a different medical condition every round.  Usually, it's some kind of muscle strain in a different part of his body he got lifting weights or working in the house/yard that week.  Last week, it was poison oak on his leg.  Other times, its some kind of digestive problem.  He's not that old, but he has to stretch before every shot because his neck/shoulder/back/whatever is sooooo tight.
  7. Jason, Amanda Dufner Getting a Divorce

    If divorce was inevitable, I'm just glad they did it before they had children.  Fortunately for the single men on this board, I'm married.  Oh, and I'm broke, too.
  8. GolfDigest Editor Goes Undercover as a Cart Girl

    It's uncomfortably awkward when the cart girl flirts with me.  I just take off my glove and show my wedding ring like a crucifix to a vampire.  I'm so incredibly good looking, though, I can't blame them.  Leave me alone, I'm trying to play some golf here.  I don't have time for these distractions.  Oh, and wake me up from my fantasy...
  9. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    Tiger Woods just announced he is not playing next week's Arnold Palmer.  We all know what THAT means!  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
  10. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    No, I'm not.  You are using what's called Cognitive Bias.
  11. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    Just an observation.  Seems like you observed the same thing.  Do you even know what inference means?  Most on here don't.
  12. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    You're right about Jack being built like a linebacker when he came into pro golf.  I agree.  But, Tiger was built like a pine needle when he came into pro golf.
  13. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    First of all, I don't hate Tiger Woods.  I enjoy watching him compete and I think he has been great for the game of golf and the touring pros' professions.  I hope he can come back and beat Jack's record.  But, there are many on here who have their blinders on, their head in the sand and just don't want to even consider the possibility that Tiger used some form of PED.  It is telling that you say "0-for-however many things you want to come up with." How about if I came up with 5 more?  10? 100?  What would it take? Once again, I don't have pictures, eye-witnesses or receipts.  Seriously, what would it take?  All I have is what we all observe and you disagree with that.  Obviously, you are pre-disposed to disagree with any, or any other, indicators I come up with, so it doesn't matter.
  14. The Tiger Woods/PED Thread

    I think you have to remember that physical fitness in golf is a relatively recent phenomenon. Tiger and Vijay are noted as being at the forefront (Hmm, that's interesting...  OK OK don't throw things at me, I'm not insinuating anything there).  Anyway, I think vanity, intimidation and gaining or keeping an edge might go into it without really knowing what the short term and long term effect would be.  I think pro golfers saw the potential benefits and results of at least staying physically fit, and that continues today.  I don't think pros see the need to get linebacker big or any benefit of PED's. With Tiger, and this is PURE CONJECTURE (so don't get overly sensitive, here), I think he was so wispy thin and unpopular with the ladies during college, he might have been attracted to something that would help him look like and become a stud.  It would make sense with his later womanizing.  Again, pure conjecture, no evidence, but it could be a possible motive.
