\ They could have gotten an anonymous source who completely made things up, and that's ALL that's required.

You're wrong there.  The NE would lose the lawsuit if it is untrue and based on an anonymous source.

Wrong about what?

Wrong about there being more to it.

Like I said, if nothing comes out, people forget about it. If something comes out, you get to say "see, told you so." It's a pretty easy claim to make because there's little downside.

I'm just saying the NE wouldn't have printed this if they didn't have some sort of information, simple as that.

The amount and quality of the information they need to run with a story is pretty light.

You're wrong there.  The NE would lose the lawsuit if it is untrue and based on an anonymous source.


I don't think that's accurate. Never mind the fact that there's little in the way of reasons to sue rags like the NE. What's to be gained in Tiger or Amanda doing that? There's virtually no upside to them in suing even if they've done nothing at all wrong.


This now exhausts my interest in this. Respond if you like… I will not be. Didn't care about Tiger's actual personal life in 2009, don't care now. If this starts to affect his golf, I may care a bit.

I say congratulations to Jason Dufner.  He got out cheap.  When I say cheap, he doesn't have a lot of time invested in the marriage and no children.  Other than the emotional price, Jason won't suffer much.  Amanda taught him a good lesson about finance.  I am a big fan of Dufner.  Just wished he could make all the short putts.

Would also like to add that as I understand it, if a lawsuit was filed, the questions in discovery on the court record can be brutal.  This is what prevented the National Enquirer from being continuously sued.  I think Carol Burnett was the only celebrity to take on the NE and she did it successfully.

The suit would also drag on for years, and cost a ton of money. Best to let this argument die due to attrition.  All fictional of course.

Then again..............http://www.webpronews.com/amanda-boyd-lindsey-vonn-allegedly-caught-her-with-tiger-woods-2015-07

No one knows if this is true or false. I get a kick out of people who say this is fictional. How do they know??? Same with people who said this definitely happened. How do they know? At this point all we can do is believe what we want to believe. I don't want to believe it because I would hope Tiger wouldn't stab a fellow Tour player and friend in the back like that, but then again, Tiger doesn't have a great history, but this would stoop to a new low and I could never support him again.

Like I've said, for the NE to print this, they likely have something that links the two together. And the NE's history with Tiger Woods is pretty accurate...they were spot on about his affairs in the past. Like I said, I think more will come out about this in the future if it's true. Can't see it dying out if it really happened.

I don't normally explain my posts, but in this instance I will. The " All fictional of course" part of my post was meant for the fictional lawsuit, with the fictional law firm named. I am going out on a limb here and play like the weatherman does in their forecast. I am going with a 50/50 chance that he did knock off a batch or two with her. Now I'd like to see Dufner and Woody paired together in the last group on Sunday, and Dufner whispers something to Woody who then takes 14 putts on the last hole. :whistle:

Many people simply don't understand that there are women who choose men based on financial or social benefits period. This isn't s derogatory notion any more. There are many women who will admit it up front and see no shame whatsoever. As long as there are men who will play the game it will continue. The unfortunate outcome is when a genuinely nice guy like we assume Dufner is doesn't really see it and believes there is true love there mutually. I'm sure he's learned a valuable lesson and will be fine. I feel for the guy and hope he just moves on. As far as Tiger's deal, it's a tough call regarding the validity of such an accusation. But I can't imagine with today's social media being able to hide this for long if it's true.

How do you know that The Duff wasn't an ******* at home to her? I'm not saying it was the case, but how do we know it wasn't? We literally know nothing, at this point, about what caused the break up. She might have been the nicest person imaginable, and he could've been a boorish jerk. Our not. We just don't know. Anyways....

No.  Someone has to stand for maturity, class, and treating ALL women with a modicum of respect.  Maybe some folks on the thread do not have moms, wives, or daughters, but some of us do and find it disgusting the way women are being talked about here.  Panties get in a bunch if someone says some one "threw like  girl" but that is far less offensive than some of the comments made in this thread.  I'll defend to the death your right to say these things, but I will also defend to the death my right to criticize them.

So if you were hurt by what I said, maybe you should reconsider your own contributions to the discussion.  And if you feel fine about your contributions, than nothing I said matters.

Sorry, I have a wife and a daughter but no single group is entitled to respect, it's earned on a individual basis.

All men and women are capable of having questionable motives, morals and ethics that aren't worthy of being given respect.  Amanda might be a great person if you knew her, but our opinions of her are based on the way she conducts herself in public arenas that we are privy too.

If she cheated with Tiger they are both in the wrong, but imo she is more wrong since she was married and Tiger was someone that her husband worked with.

Absolutely right. That's why I said "assumption" Dufner is a nice guy. However, some people find it too difficult to accept that some stereotypical descriptions are really in fact accurate. There are those who truly believe Sterlings mistress was in love with him, that Hefner's women truly love him and his wealth plays no role. And that's fine. They feel good for taking that stance. Most of us know although it's a pleasant and romantic point of view, it's quite naive. But you're right. Who really knows? I personally feel Amanda is as I described earlier. But I guarantee you this, if it comes out that she was nothing but a gold digger, not one of the naysayers will post that they were wrong.

I think what @colin007 is getting at is why bother even making the assumption if you have to admit it's based on next to nothing? Why bother speculating?

Because it's no bother at all. There are terms such as "intuition", "6th sense", "1st impression" "I've got a feeling about this". Although today's society is trying so hard to believe they don't exist because they are offensive and life threatening, I do not follow that ideology and never will. I read, I listen, I analyze what I have and an not a coward to express an opinion be it premature or not. If I'm wrong, so what? I'll use it to learn better next time. Hell, the entire post is based on a speculation. That mvmac had no problem posting for discussion. Why bother without this accusation being confirmed? Ahh...get the picture now?

So, wait… now it's "brave" (opposite of being a "coward") to post an opinion? C'mon @Vinsk . Let's not over-dramatize this or give yourself too much credit.

You're speculating. My sixth sense, my intuition, my impression, my feeling says this whole thing is bogus. So… where's that leave us? Nowhere.

Just interesting discussion. You think it's bogus, others don't. Relax Erik, it's just simple discussion. Sometimes there isn't a finite answer and that's just fine.

I'm not the least bit worked up. I did nothing but very quickly say the opposite of what you said and caution you against calling yourself "brave" simply for expressing an opinion.

IT'S THE JUSTICE SYSTEM THATS SHAGGED!!! Just ask Robin Williams.

    • I was able to pay off my loans early all by myself, so everyone else should too.  Of course I was only paying $1200 per year in tuition for a chemical engineering degree. Now get off my lawn. It does "feel" like colleges compete based on amenities more than cost than they did when I was in school. In addition to the added cost of those amenities, state governments have reduced funding per student to the schools which forced the schools to rely on  tuition more. The availability of student loans allowed the states to cut the funding. I don't know which happened first, the loans or the funding cuts. I assume there is also some waste at schools in the form of a higher administrator to student ratio. I don't know what to do about the high cost of college and the debt burden on students.  I don't think that the ROI is high enough for some degrees. Many would be better off learning a trade.  In addition to the limits Erik mentioned, I think loan forgiveness for certain degrees in certain locations could help.  In the mean time I recommend everyone use the plan that I used for my kids to graduate college debt free. I have 2 single siblings who make good money who started contributing to a 529 for my kids when they were little.  I only paid about $4K per year which was in order to get the max tax credits. Each kid did/does get some scholarships that covered around 25% of total costs. My son is currently in school and plays on the golf team, but he does not get any money for it. Maybe he can earn a little next year with some continued improvement. My back up plan was for my wife to get a full time job after having been a SAHM and then substitute teacher for all of our kids' lives.
    • I remember last summer, when he complained that a cameraman was "damaging my brand" by having the temerity to video Bryson's actions.  Same here, its not Bryson's fault, its everyone else.  If you care about other people's opinions of you, you better think before you open your mouth and give them a reason to think you're a doofus.
    • Well those are actual numbers for one school, so it’s a small sample. And it’s more years. 1957 was $600, 1978 was $6000 and WPI was $60,000 when my son graduated from HS in 2013. When I was in school it went from $6k to $8K in 4 years.
    • Technically yesterday- 80, Woodley Lakes from the whites - 38-42 with a horrendous 7 on the easy par 5 13th after hitting a great drive AND a very nice 3 wood to about 91 yards short…then the carnage began - 56 degree fat to the collar…square strike (yep, have on - love it) caught the seam of the collar and went 25 feet past…first putt burned the edge but slipped 4 feet by…4 footer right in the heart but only traveled 3 feet 11 inches…BOOM double bogey…   Tomorrow is Balboa - usually break 80 there, but we will see…   good round to all playing today!
    • Scale back the Federal backing of student loans. Allow students to default like any other loan. Universities can offer loans in conjunction with private banks. The universities would be responsible for making sure they have good, sound programs and solid students who can then get appropriate jobs after graduation to repay the loans. If a university pushes too many marginal degree programs to students who have questionable academic talents, they will pay the price with high defaults that hurts their bottom line. That is the only way to change this. There is nothing stopping universities coming up with endless silly programs, recruiting foolish or desperate people to take out huge loans that they will never be able to repay. We have laws against the payday loan people abusing the poorest in society, but here we are abusing the naïve youth of our nation who lack experience at life. Additionally, too many people go to universities. Some schools have programs for the mentally challenged and learning disabled. Why saddle them and their parents with useless debt? In some cases this has become a system rigged to fleece a class of people and the government is complicit. We are allowing the government at the state and federal level take advantage of its citizenry. With the government backing this scheme, prices naturally go up. If the government allows these loans to be written off, the prices will go higher thereby compounding the problem. I have 4 children who have earned a total of 7 university degrees and none have had any student debt, so I have thought a lot about this. I have also interviewed a lot of new graduates some of who have had loan amounts that are ridiculous. Two guys in particular with BS in mechanical engineering with loans just under $200k. To me that is a red flag they won't be able to solve basic engineering problems.
