Why does anyone have to live up to your expectations or anyone else's for that matter? Maybe I had expectations for him to get rich, get married to a hot wife and have women on the side....if so he exceeded mine....

Because we live in a society.  As I said before, my expectation is simply that he (and everyone else) will obey the law, not put others at unnecessary risk, and generally conform to societal norms.  You don't?

Ok that is reasonable. I guess I was talking about other issues that are personal morality based.

Whoa, buddy. You can get kicked off the internet for saying s--t like this! :-P

I know, right?!  Where does something like that even come from?!

:-D

Looks like TMZ screwed us all over again with bad reporting. No mention of LA at all in the dash cam video. Tiger sounds totally coherent and not wasted. He says he knows he's in Jupiter. Totally cooperative.

The road is not wide there. There's just a bike lane. Tough to get much further off the road without getting on the sidewalk.

David, you've disliked (hated?) Tiger since long before this DUI thing. So "society" really doesn't have much to do with the previous stuff.

The field sobriety test shows definitely that he's disoriented to some extent. As to why that is, I think I've learned my lesson at this point to wait and see.

I'm not sure what you mean.  I've never hidden the fact that I don't like Tiger.  That has nothing to do with this particular situation though.

You missed the point. But it's not worth getting into, so…

Yes, it's dangerous, but nowhere near the things I've seen that are a common occurrence. People park on the shoulder of a major highway with little buffer all the time. If I recall correctly, the report said he had his blinkers on.

Watched Golf Channel coverage that aired portions of Tiger's arrest.  It is such a sad commentary on our society that this is even aired and is getting this kind of coverage.  What he did was wrong, but it is just as wrong for the Florida Police to allow their videos to be released to the media.  Give the guy a break.

Well played!

I have to agree it sucks that video is released.  

My only comment at this point relates to his statement.

He said something like I understand the severity of my actions.  Think about that a minute.  It's an admission of guilt of sorts.  If he said I took my meds as directed by my physician and had an unexpected reaction that's different.

I dunno maybe someone mentioned this but I have not read the whole thread.  Food for thought.

Yep.  I believe Tiger is not well liked around there. Jmo

I get what you guys are saying about not releasing the video, but in this case, it kinda makes sense. The video contradicts much of what TMZ and others reported, so in that sense, the video is a good thing. Otherwise, we'd be left with the image of a drooling Tiger Woods calling a cop a pig and then angrily demanding directions to the Pacific Coast Highway or he'll give everyone a knuckle sandwich.

Decent point,  but imo innocent until proven guilty holds and evidence should be presented to courts not ESPN.

Fair enough, just playing devil's advocate.

    • Oh there’s more difference than that. Lol.
    • They can't win fans but they're prolly trying to dull the 'root against'.  Here's wishing you some much needed good luck.. Like muuuuch needed. Y'all should be setting up a 'luck drive' tent for donations. 
    • I became interested in golf watching Tiger in the late 90’s, I was amazed at what he could do with a golf ball so I started playing with friends. Up until then I played Tennis 6 days a week, Monday was rest day…
    • They’re having a bit of fun… Someone is taking this too serious. And what some guy on Twitter calls it doesn’t mean that was their intention. Does anyone believe the European team thought they would win a bunch of new fans in USA, playing against USA, by wearing silly hats? 🙄 The golf is serious when they get started playing, but this is also an opportunity to have some fun in a team event they rarely get to participate in. https://www.skysports.com/golf/ryder-cup/news/26733/12414595/ryder-cup-2020-europe-turn-on-cheesehead-charm-with-green-bay-packers-tribute-at-whistling-straits
