Nike marketing wet dream, hear me out on this commercial: Black screen with a Nike swoosh Olson's radio comments playing, audio only, focusing on the Nike "cheater ball" comments Pic

Right, every sportswriter in the world would love to get this story but some obscure guy who is apparently known only for giving out stupid quotes has the inside track on what is going on with Tiger.

A professional golfer with an unverified inside source. Sounds more like he's throwing darts. Everything he said is just vague enough to be plausible without actually being able to cite any specifics.

It is fascinating that you embrace every rumor about Tiger and ignore every rumor about Jack and Arnie.


Well to be fair, Tiger (and Rory) are playing against a field is deeper and has access to better PED's than Jack and Arnie ever faced.

They had them, though, I'm sure. Basebal players of that era used amphetamines to keep going through the long season.

That is an interesting take. I didn't think about the how he could use a slander lawsuit to clear his name for old allegations. If figured his PR people would advise him not to sue because headlines would read something like.

"Billionaire golfer Tiger Woods sues struggling journeyman pro"

^^That's a fair point. Optics either way aren't great here for Tiger I guess. It's unfortunate, I just don't like to see unfounded/untrue rumors get thrown out there without consequences.

A part of me thinks this ^^^^

Nope. Some people just don't go on attack mode with the lawyer. Heck you might not even hear about it. Olsen might get a nicely written document stating to the fact what a big pile of  he just stepped in with all of this.

is a result of ^^^^

Quote:

Olsen backed off Monday, telling ESPN.com's Michael Collins that "it was only my opinion."

"Everything I said on that radio interview was only my opinion and not based on any firsthand knowledge or facts," Olsen told ESPN.com. "I want to make a full retraction to everything I said for the entire radio interview, and I apologize to Tiger, Nike, Phil [Mickelson], [commissioner] Tim Finchem and the PGA Tour."

Translation: "Please please pleaseee don't sue my a$$." :smartass:

How can you have the "opinion" that someone has been suspended for a month?

You may as well say you have the "opinion" that someone was arrested for burglary despite not being aware of anything having gone missing.

This idiot deserves  to be sued.

Nike marketing wet dream, hear me out on this commercial:

Black screen with a Nike swoosh

Olson's radio comments playing, audio only, focusing on the Nike "cheater ball" comments

Picture fades in, TIGER WOODS EARLY 2000's BALL WORKING COMPILATION, no background music just "cheater ball" comments plus ballstriking

Olson's radio comments are repeated over and over while the sick compilation is playing, "cheater ball cheater ball"

30 seconds of Tiger checking up wedges and long irons while "cheater ball" is repeated over and over

2005 Masters chip is the last clip of the compilation, the Nike logo drops into the hole and the picture and sound cut out:

Black screen white text: "Give your playing partners something to talk about.  The Nike 20xi-version 2.0"

Sales go up 1,000,000% and the entire world uses Nike balls

I'm no legal expert,so I may very well be wrong, but I think he's angling for a defense in case he gets sued. Perhaps he'll be arguing that he has a right to his opinions no matter how unfounded they may be. Not sure how good a defense that will be, but....

I would like to see him dragged to court and sweat it out, but I hope Tiger doesn't sue him. Just let bottom feeders be bottom feeders (in PGA tour sense),. don't dignify him with a direct response.

The same way people try to have an opinion on other factual matters these days. Look at any televised science debate and you'll see various stations trying to give airtime to different "viewpoints." It's amazing how often one "viewpoint" doesn't have any real scientists on it, and yet somehow a bimbo who posed in [i]Playboy[/i] decades ago is put opposite doctors as if the two are equally qualified to talk about it. I don't think any reasonably prudent person would view Olsen's comments as being opinions; it's clear he was trying to present them as facts, and an anonymous source (who may or may not be fictional) saying it to him doesn't count as due diligence. I think Woods' lawyers, should he choose to go that route, could likely show some malice in Olsen's statements (which is a major threshold in a celebrity slander/libel suits).

I can't think of a better way to keep this stupid story on the front page. They did the same thing by making a fuss over the Dan Jenkins article. Let it go.

I'd like for Olsen to tell us who his "strong witness" and "credible" source is. He should have just came out and said he lied about all this.

His credible source is his own imagination :-D

Very bad attempt at a topical analogy, FYI. Science is rarely black and white and there is often room for truly differing opinions. Whether or not someone took drugs IS black and white and isn't open to any interpretation.

Olsen is trying to backtrack to to save his butt from legal action. Plain and simple. At no point can what he said originally be construed as 'just his opinion'. He said everything as if it were fact, so if Tiger wants to crush this guy in court I'm sure he could.

What do you mean by this?

My point is many people include on this thread have said Olson should be sued, he won't and he can't be sued. Al Gore had an opinion and agenda about global warming, he made some harsh predictions and even profited from it...now affectionate refered to as climate change...".and now we know the rest of the story" -the late Paul Harvey
