Haney Supports Tiger for a Change

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hank Haney came to Tiger's defense in this report:

 

Hank Haney, Woods' former swing coach, who has been one of Woods' most vocal critics since they stopped working together in 2010, told the Golf Channel that he never saw anything out of the ordinary in Galea's treatment of Woods.

"I was there and watched the whole procedure," Haney said. "There was never anything that went into Tiger Woods's body that didn't come out of his body. They take blood out, they spin it, they inject the plasma back in. I totally believe that Tiger Woods has never taken any performance-enhancing drugs."

Hank has been consistent on this issue, to his credit. 

 

Also, that report is weird. It doesn't say that Tiger used PEDS, just that he paid a Galea and the other doctor for treatment. It's not quite the bombshell its being made out to be. I'm sure if the author had found any evidence of Tiger using PED's they would've explicitly said so.

And if Tiger DID do anything shady Hank Haney would've LOVED to break the news.

Yeah, I think this is a bit of a non-story. Folks wanting to create smoke where there is none.

Any athlete that performs at the top of their sport will now be questioned about PED's.  As a NY'er it was funny because for years people speculated that ARod used them, but the defense was he didn't show any of the normal signs in the way Bonds and others did.  As we learned, PED's aren't just about getting bigger and stronger they are also beneficial to healing and recovery.

 

I suspect the PED's cloud will always surround Tiger, much as it did for ARod and Lance Armstrong since it's impossible to prove they didn't take them and there's always the possibility that at some point someone will come out with proof that they did.

 

It's good to see Haney take the high road with Tiger this time.

Want some clicks on your article, stick Tiger's name in the headline. That's basically all I saw there.
