Sorry. You're right. I think I thought you'd quoted my post and responded. My bad.
"Scum" goes way too far. I think it was a breach of trust. I think that if you invite someone into your home, and he writes a book sharing private details, it's not the most upstanding thing to do. Even if the book was 100% golf I don't think that, as someone Tiger paid, he should necessarily write it while Tiger's still playing. Those parts, according to the people I trust, are a mixture of sour grapes, chest-beating, subtle Butch/Foley-put-downs, and so on.
And I have cited specific things. The first three that spring to mind:
- Hearsay re: Tiger's injuries.
- Almost anything involving Elin.
No, I'm still not gonna read it. Not really even because I don't want to (I'm pretty ambivalent). I might get to it in a few years. But there are about 20 books ahead of it on my Kindle and 10 "physical" books I'll read first. I'm currently in the middle of "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running".
I get that the book is 98% "golf-related." Doesn't mean it's not a lousy book.
Two independent sources cited by HH relating to the source of the injury. One was Tiger's best golfing bud.
What is "almost anything" involving Elin? Is that what you call a citation to a passage in the book, or is it speculation about what you thought might be in the book based on excerpts?
Popsicle-gate is stupid. When I posted my specific thoughts on this topic, your response was "I'm not going to read your analysis, because I don't care" or something like that.
I'm not trying to be argumentative here, but I do think you need to justify your opinions if you're going to attack mine. Otherwise, your opinion is that of someone with a Tiger man-crush who refuses to read the book, but insists on judging it anyway.
