Enough Tiger already

Why don’t you all get off of Tiger Woods?

If he does something, you put a big picture of him in the paper. But when a NASCAR driver wins a race, it is a little picture. NASCAR is only once a week, and there are other golfers besides Woods. And he once was in a domestic dispute with his now-ex-wife. He should have gone to jail!

I drive four miles one way to get the paper, and sometimes there is not much in it. Tell that sports writer who loves Woods to go live with him. Why doesn’t the paper take a poll and see how many like Woods and how many do not, and let’s go from there?

From what I understand...

From what I understand, TV ratings are 30% higher when he is in contention. He is a big draw. Like many athletes people love him or hate him. More of the latter after his extramaritial activities.

Well

He is the best to play the game since Jack and Arnold. The domestic dispute you mention he was the victim not the attacker. You can hate him for his off the course antics but make no mistake about it (and if you listened to AB sports on Monday you heard the numbers) he may even wind up being the best to ever play the game.

I agree, he very well could be the greatest, but he doesn't have the numbers yet. He better recover fast and get back to playing good golf.

As a golf fan, I'm rooting for him and hope to see him competing with Rory, Bubba and these new comers. I don't exactly keep up with ANY golfer, but it's exciting to see possibly the greatest golfer of MY generation, back in the game!! Some people are critical of everything he does; even his getting mad when he hit's bad shots!! All I can tell those people is, don't go golfing with me!! His reaction is mild!!

Also, everyone I've talk to that has met him, says he is a very nice guy. Yes, he slept with porn stars and ruined his marriage!! I certainly don't think it's honorable behavior, but I also think there are a LOT of men out here, if they had his money and fame, would be doing the EXACT same!! He fell to temptations that were available to him!!

Give him a break and let him get back to playing some good golf!!

His personal life, what he

His personal life, what he did to his wife and children, and his temper tantrums on the golf course have turned me totally off - no matter how well he plays the game.

GG - his wife did to him what most women feel like doing to their husbands when they discover such a grand scale betrayal! He wasn't the victim, his family was.

Ratings are higher ...

when he's in a tournament. I get that. So show him, whatever he's doing.

But when you watch a tournament and the leader, who is at -12 gets less coverage that Tiger at +8? Come on man.

Do you see Arnold Palmer

Do you see Arnold Palmer cavorting with prostitutes?

Or any of the other great golfers?

No, his behavior is all about HIM, and there's no justification for it.

He's trash.

He was spoiled rotten by his parents and thinks he's special, and takes up with prostitutes while his wife is at home taking care of his home and children.

What a pathetic excuse of a so-called man.

Woods was on his way to being the best to ever play golf. His lifestyle started to get in the way and he'll never regain the lofty status he once enjoyed. It's ridiculous the amount of coverage Woods received on the British Open when he wasn't ever in contention. I get that he puts viewers in the stands but his time has passed.

I agree with the naysayers

I agree with the naysayers for the same reasons. He will never be the equal to the past greats because of his comportment. A player's "greatness" extends beyond his/her game stats.

LTE

Perfectly worded LTE!! Tiger may very well be the best golfer in the history of the game, BUT clearly there are MANY, MANY young golfers that deserve the attention that the Augusta Chronicle CONTINUES to give him!!!! Why in the name of fairness can not your Sports Writers do exactly what this LTE writer is suggesting!!!! You all act like Woods is THE SECOUND COMING, and quite frankly we are tired of this!! Report on who is the best when you go to print!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HE was a robot made by his father
