  2. As I said, the AVERAGE golf fan, doesn't know who Matt Every is. The AVERAGE golf fan, isn't watching Big Break. The AVERAGE golf fan, the season begins at the Masters and ends at the FedEx Cup Tour Championship, if not before because of football season. Hell, the AVERAGE fan now thinks Matt Every is a dope head that lucked into leading a golf tournament. So, the world is going to blame ME for saying Matt Every's interview was off base, if he doesn't rebound from it? Um. Ok. Pretty sure that no one (Golf Digest, Golf, Golf World, Golf Channel) is combing the Sand Trap for 30 somethi
  3. That is my argument and reason for discussing this. The timing is crap! I don't fault Kelly and GC for asking the question. I have a problem of WHEN they asked the question. Matt and his family have already dealt with his problems and have probably worked pretty hard to rebuilt his career and confidence. He finally goes out, plays a good round of golf, begins the process of repairing his career and BLAM, it is tossed back into his lap. They totally diminished his round of golf by proceeding on a witch hunt on the guy. WHO CARES?!? Obviously, he has done his time and paid for his mistak
  4. By the way, I am a political operative. I love locking horns and discussing shit like this. It beats arguing politics all the time! Great discussion guys. Even the ones I disagree with!
  5. I realize that he didn't have to conduct the interview, but this isn't freaking 20/20 or Dateline. This isn't the O'Reilly Factor or Roy Firestone. People tune in to watch golf, the highlights of their favorite players round and to hear what the players say about their round afterwards and how they played. Like I said, if Golf Channel wanted to push the story of his arrest and suspension, I can think of about 100 other settings that would have been a touch better suited than the kids first big breakout on the big tour. I mean, my God, he was suspended for 3 months. I am pretty sure he add
  6. How many people knew or spoke of Matt Every before that interview? My guess is not many outside of his family and circle of friends. I doubt he was picked in very many fantasy golf leagues. I bet you find Jimmy Hoffa before you find a post regarding Matt Every (before this one and the Sony discussion thread). If you aren't a die hard junkie for tour golf, chances are, you didn't even know who Matt Every was. So his introduction to the golf community was Kelly Tilghman roasting him on a mistake he made a year ago? Was Matt Every and his mistake less relevant before he was leading this tou
  7. And that's just it. I could care less if what he did is right or wrong. What nerves me, is Kelly is trying to pass herself off as a "journalist" by conducting these player interviews and totally tosses them into a bear trap like that. I mean, I don't care who you are, you are only going to get away with that for so long before no one is going to talk to you. It is painfully clear that Every had no idea he was going to be asked that question. Golf Channel wasn't exactly knocking down his door when it happened or before the tournament for him to explain, because you know why? No one knew o
  8. A buddy and me went to play Cog Hill Dubsdread one day. We were in town for a wedding and decided the day before the wedding, we wanted to play a course that professionals play. It was a week or so after what was then The Western Open. Well, we got paired up with a local member. Nice guy named Tim. Well, he was a ringer, dude was awesome and my buddy and I are hackers at best. Well, we get to the cabin hole (the Par 3 on the back 9, I believe it is 14 maybe) and he asks my buddy and I, "do you mind if I fire up a bowl". My buddy never smoked pot in his life and I, well, I will just
  9. Matt Every owes no one an explanation. If he has made peace with his family, God (or whomever he prays to), and done his time, he doesn't owe Golf Channel, Kelly Tilghman, the fans, anyone, an explanation. Matt Every isn't Tiger Woods with a following of millions of people. Tiger had to appologize and talk about his problems if he ever wanted to sell a pair of shoes, a watch, a car, a ball, a hat, etc, ever again. Matt Every is just trying to live out his dreams and provide for his family. He owes no one anything. Golf Channel took what might be the guys best round of golf on the PGA
  10. Yeah, I grabbed Petterson on a hunch. I am kicking myself for not picking Kyle Stanley. Than at least ONE of my B players would have made the cut!
  11. That's why I say, I wonder if he has a social anxiety disorder. It appears to me that he does and as someone that has the same problems, sometimes it isn't as simple as saying, "Yeah, blah blah blah". Whether he should have been prepared or not, it was tasteless of GC and Kelly to turn his good round of golf into an attack on his past. Maybe Matt should have brought up that whole Kelly/Tiger thing and seen how Kelly handled it.
  12. Like I said, I am not dismissing how the guy handled the interview. But I equate how Kelly and GC handled it to, your best man standing up and giving his toast and casually mentioning the pro you hooked up with in Vegas. Or getting handed to college degree and reminded of the all night kegger you got arrested at. I mean, if you want to do a hard hitting Q and A with the guy, get at the least, a comfortable enviroment for him to answer your questions in. Sit him down with Rosie.
  13. INSERT RANT - My GF and I were sitting down to dinner, watching live coverage of the Sony Open. They flip to the player interview of the guy leading the tournament, a guy I had never heard anything about. Matt Every. As Kelly starts interviewing him, I told my GF that this guy must have a social anxiety disorder or something, because he acted very uncomfortable even talking about the most basic of things (He didn't even know what he shot on the back 9). What followed was simply jaw dropping. Kelly should have noticed that Matt was uncomfortable, so why she saw that as an oppurtu
