I can understand that .....
but then please don't impute opinions to me that I do not hold. Thanks a bunch.
No opinions were imposed. Again, I simply responded to a single post. Perhaps you should be more clear about your opinions if you don't want them taken the wrong way. You are most welcome.
I was taking the mick (TW as Superman). It is hard for me not to so so, my bad. 10 demerits for me.
I repeat, I'm not saying TW wasn't a superstar - he was the brightest in the firmament - but right now he's more of a black hole. Let's hope he starts burning bright again.
I actually never once said that you didn't think Tiger was a superstar. I said that you are not giving him credit where credit is due, which is true.
So here we have it. Everyone else is "a bunch of vanilla golfers", and only your hero Tiger has any flavor. That is my definition of a boyfan, and it really makes me wonder how much you truly appreciate the game of golf as it is played professionally.
See, now YOU are imputing opinions on me. It is true that the PGA doesn't have any real exciting stars. The ratings have proven that.
I actually have not once stated my opinion about what I think of Tiger the person or the golfer, other than to say that he has done a tremendous amount for the game. That is what I think is so comical about your response to my posts. You have taken to calling me a boyfan and saying that I don't appreciate the game simply for giving Tiger Woods credit for advancing the game.
Truth be told, I don't care for Tiger the person. I have stated numerous times that his behavior on the course is embarrassing and someone with his influence should be a more appropriate example to the public. I especially don't like Tiger's life decisions that we've heard so much about. I also don't care for the Buddhist stuff that he's into.
That being said, I think anyone who tries to discount what Tiger has done for the game is verging on stupidity or at best denial for whatever reason. Like I said, you have actually imposed an opinion on me that is not at all true. I watch pretty much every golf tournament on television whether Tiger is playing or not. I especially love to watch Tom Watson, Fred Couples, Charles Howell III, among others. I am fascinated by the history of the game as well. IMO knowing the history of the game makes Tiger's contributions even more obvious.
So you see, it is actually possible to know and respect the game while also acknowledging the truth about one of its superstars.
On that at least we can agree.
Judging from the single post that I commented on it doesn't seem that we do agree, but I will assume that you didn't portray everything you believe about golf and life in one single paragraph.
