I am writing to express my frustration with the continual obsession of NBC with Tiger Woods, as exemplified by its TV coverage May 12 at the Players Championship. It becomes apparent to me that the NBC love affair with Woods is only exceeded by the one with President Obama.
It is so frustrating to see this network and all its affiliates show every shot, every walk and every move by Woods as the focus of all tournaments he is in. I have no qualms that Woods is an outstanding golfer, but the tour is more than him, notwithstanding the money Tiger brings to the tour. It is amazing how many times Tiger’s wins are because of the poor play of his opposition.
Further, the continual adoration with every shot and how great he is becomes somewhat sickening!
May 12 was no exception. It seemed like the network was continually rooting for Tiger.
