it is interesting stevie would volunteer something like,,,tiger has a problem. just say, no comment, dude. whether the public thinks you know or don't know tiger's problem is so secondary...

You don't think Tiger's people have already discussed what Stevie should say? I would think it distants himself from Tiger, which is probably what Tiger and his reps want right now.

discussed or not, not sure. what they are trying to salvage is tiger. to reiterate "tiger's problem" instead of talking about his car racing is not helpful.

stevie is nobody. who cares what distance he is from what. I'd like to hear him say: i understand tiger is going through a hard time. whereas people may have opinions on his matter, i would like to remind everyone of all the good he has brought to the game of golf and beyond.

Tiger has been dropped as a spokesman by Accenture

Here is the way I think the sponsor thing will play out - assuming no more devastating news.

Sponsors with inventory - such as Nike, Tag, will stick with Tiger, at least until all excess inventory is sold out. Sponsors without inventory - such as Accenture, ATT, will drop him. Sponsors such as Gillette and Gatorade have products associated with him but it is not specifically TW branded like Nike and Tag, will sit on the fence for a while (this is already happening.) Of course, a company like Nike will stick by him forever. They have already proven they have no qualms about their athletes indiscretions.

reasonable assessment.

in this american society, good boyz do well, bad boyz do well, and there is not much room for sleazeball. currently, tiger looks like a sleazeball. all the pr guys are scratching their head because this unique case is not in the textbook,,, could be nike's fault to start with that slogan of ,,,just do it.

Should he get back on track and start playing again, I'm sure he'll have no problem getting sponsors. This whole situation just made him even more interesting and known.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

I feel sorry for Tiger, another time, even another country and things would be fine. Personal mores are just that. This is a brilliant, gifted, driven man who has brought wealth and prosperity beyond imagine to an entire industry and to anyone who associated with him. The real travesty is in how he is being judged by people with no standing to have an opinion. Einstein fooled around too! http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13804030/

Tiger rocks.

Nike is a dubious company in their own right. They don't exactly have the moral high ground when they've made billions upon billions of dollars with slave labor.

HAHA - no sh**!!

I know guys who are 'Nike guys". Even though their shoes are trashed in less than a year, they've stayed loyal. How can you stay mad at a 6 year old? She did the best job she could!

Steve is not nobody. He carries his bag at every event. He is on TV every time you see Tiger. Hell, Steve is sponsored by companies that aren't sponsoring Tiger. If he said no comment or your sugar coated BS, all these tabloids and everyone else would form their own opinions on Steve. Instead, he came out, said what he had to say, and is done. We have to take what he said for face value.

yes, stevie is nobody. esp now, what a sellout,,what a rat.

so one has to do or say things just in case the tabloids will form their own opinions?

"Steve is sponsored by companies that aren't sponsoring Tiger." what does that supposed to mean? that if stevie does not the draw the line in public, he could lose sponsorship? my my.

I did a quick search and found the recent stuff...I don't see how he is a rat unless i missed something?

i am not a big fan of someone like stevie who waits no time to point out in public that he is the good guy...when tiger, the bad guy, is in the dumpster.

so sorry, not a rat,, but a good guy

I think Stevie is an idiot...especially with the Phil Mickelson blast earlier this year. But how did he bury his boy Tiger? I can't find much..help my dumbazz out with a link!

no i think we are talking about the same article. apparently i read it differently

. so a sportswriter suggested that stevie must knew something. stevie in response, in anger, came out publicly and said he knew nothing, meaning tiger did it behind his back. taken at its "face value", it is a valid assertion. however, in my book, for stevie to come out to draw attention to tiger's problem during tiger's darkest moment is an interesting gesture. he knows right from wrong but tiger does not. isn't he supposed to be a fanatic tiger defense person? cough, cough, good person.

Honestly I'm missing your point. If Stevie said he saw nothing I don't see how thats slamming Tiger. But can we at least agree who gives a damn what Stevie thinks. He's hired help and will stick up for the boss.

haha, allow me to beat the dead horse one last time.

IF the whole world knows nothing of tiger's problem and stevie is asked about it, if he says what he has said, then i agree with you that he is standing up for tiger, regardless if he knows or not. now, the whole world knows of tiger's problem already and stevie says he knows nothing. either he is indeed an idiot , or, to me, the implication is that tiger has also mislead him. since the whole world is already mad at tiger for being mislead, stevie raised his hand and yelled,,,me too!

    • Broadcast going from tape delayed to live. Who moves the needle? Who?  
    • I think you are both right to some degree.  We've had a ton of discussion around this house about it. For obvious reasons.  For the gentleman who died. He said it himself. It was his choice. Would he have made a different choice had he know the outcome? Of course he would have. Only a fool wouldn't. I can understand not feeling sorry for him. Personally, I feel sorry for him. He was misinformed. He put his trust in the wrong somebody and made a mistake that cost him his life.  I, however, REALLY feel bad for the grandkids. They are school age kids, but too young to be vaccinated just yet. They may wonder for the rest of their lives. "Geez, if I hadn't hugged grandpa, would he have lived?" ..."If we had just waited a couple weeks until the kids' vaccine was available?"  The point I am really trying to get across is when somebody says "It's my choice. I'm only hurting myself if I'm wrong." That's bullshit! Those grandkids may wonder for ever if they could have done something differently. His daughter will wonder "If I had told dad he can't come see the grandkids until he's vaccinated, would he still be here?"  Everyone he left behind has to deal with thoughts of whether or not THEY did something wrong. Just because HE chose to listen to Facebook instead of his doctor. So, yes, it's his choice. But he's not only hurting himself even if he's the only one who had to go to the hospital. Even if he's the only one who dies. That's a rotten legacy of guilt to leave your family. 
    • TIL: Well, at least from someone who knows hockey, what he told me. That defense and goalies have gotten better so an uptick in deflection scores. That pickup the puck off the ice move looks pretty hard. Especially to do it that quickly under the time pressure of a game. Kind of reminds me of juggling a golf ball, but that skill doesn't help much with scoring in golf whereas in hockey, it did here. I don't watch hockey and don't know it as well as other sports, but this looks like it was quite something.  
    • That's why I said I know it's harsh. My point was essentially a philosophical one. People change their minds about war when they have had first hand experience of it. It has to be personal for some people. Some people can only understand domestic abuse when it affects them personally. Some people can only understand genocide when they have a family connection. People decide to get vaccinated when they think "Shit... x died. I'm getting vaccinated." I get you....I'm making a point in a way that can make me look bad. But I do think the point is valid. Which is why I phrased it the way I did. And..... I accept your criticism. It is not unfair.  
    • He might play Bay Hill at some point… but even that's unlikely, I think. Three majors (not the U.S. Open?). Maybe Riviera (pretty flat, benefits TWF). Those are the tier 1 tournaments, I think. Maybe the Players, since he can bunt it around and putt and it's a flat site, and it pays out a good bit too. I think he'll play six events a year.
