Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

Can you blame him?

I dunno.  Thats a pretty serious chemical cocktail.  A little pot is one thing but this?

Imo he's a very lonely man searching for stimulation.  

He was literally raised to dominate golf.  After that what's left?  He screwed up his marriage/swing.  I don't pity the fool as Mr T would have said.

Due to money it appears he will obviously not get the full charges any average person would get.

Hes nothing like Hogan.

*Is accused of.

Lots of stuff happened to O.J. besides the murder case. He's been sitting in jail for years because of other events. The trial and all that went down was the beginning of it all, but he really declined in the next years.

This is not the thread to go deep into Simpson's story. Just a thought that came to me when I read this thread.

OK...how's this:

I think it's unlikely that Tiger Woods loses all of his money in a civil trial related to a double homicide, and is convinced by his friends to commit armed robbery, and goes to jail.

My point is that a comparison between TW and OJ is absurd.

I didn't compare. I said I hoped he didn't end up like OJ, where my primary focus was on the events not related to the trial and double homicide.

I've always believed Tiger used PEDs to some degree in his prime.  This revelation, while unrelated, ticks another box on the Yes side of that argument for me.  Clearly no compunction about putting dangerous, illegal substances into his body.

What is the percentage of PED users who are also addicted to prescription medication? I don't remember any account of PED users in other sports like football or baseball that also stated they were abusing prescription drugs.

Unless you have evidence pointing to a link between PED use and prescription medication it might be a bit of stretch to think one should be used as evidence for another. I think you are more likely just fueling your own bias on this subject.

What illegal substance is he putting in his body? All of those are prescribed drugs, and legal. In Florida you are allowed medical marijuana. Typically it isn't hard to get a script for it.

Uhhh, no.

There's been no indication that any of the drugs were "illegal" either.

All of those drugs are illegal without a script, doubt he had current scripts for all 5.  Anyway, that's a minor component of my post.  

More important is the fact that they are dangerous and potentially harmful and Tiger had no compunction about putting them in his body.  

As I mentioned, just another tick mark on the Yes side of the argument for me.  There are a few ticks on the No side as well, but Yeses far outweigh Nos on my scale.  Perhaps not on yours.

You don't know that.

No, because I like to use facts to determine the outcome, not the other way around like you who already determined your opinion and then forces things into columns that suit that.

For me,  I can understand wanting something that gives a positive feeling like one you had achieved in a healthy way like Tiger did in golf.

Add real pain of injury.  Add personal problems...

This can happen.  The only thing that really draws my attention is driving while under influence.

Tigers could get someone to drive.  No need to drive while intoxicated.
