Tiger Woods and race

It has been implied by nameless, faceless people that the position Tiger Woods finds himself in, is a result of his race. Even going so far as to say "Tiger and the MASTERS, b/c we all know that MASTERS have a reputation for fair treatment for all Americans, right?"

Please keep replies PG rated, and civil. YES or NO, do you feel race has anything to do with Tiger right now?

I say no. Tiger Woods current situation is a result of the choices he made in his life, and his race has nothing to do with any of it.

Mods, feel free to lock this thread if it gets out of line.

Tiger's only race was the one to get into as many females pants as possible.

I havn't really been hearing that. I can think of a lot of white guys that have had similar scandals.

I don't think race has anything do with it. I blame his Nike sponsorship. He took their slogan to heart: Just do it!

A LETTER TO JESSE JAMES

You Stupid Bastard! You cheated on Sandra Bullock?

How in the world can you be so stupid? You are married to one of
the most beautiful women in the world.


She has a body to die for and her current wealth shadowed only by
Oprah.

Your wife recently beat out Julia Roberts in the polls and is now
named "America's Sweetheart."

You also remember, she just won an Oscar and praised you up and
down in front of the world while you were porkin' away with some trailer park reject.

You are really a piece of work! You are the most hated asshole
cheater on the planet!

How can you live with yourself?

I only have one thing to say to the despicable, miserable,
cheating piece of shit that you are:



Thanks for taking the heat off of me.


Let's do lunch.


~Tiger

That's because jesse james is a pimple on the ass of tiger woods to the public.
Plus, what kind of rule model was jesse james supposed to be? I would expect him to cheat on his wife with every women he ever meets.

Jesse James is still getting more press about it than he should. Its just that Tiger has much much much much more than he should. The way I see it, their personal life should be no more important than my own.

Didn't South Park do an episode on this already lol?

Anyway I believe it has nothing to do with race when it comes with Tiger and the choices he made. He was always this stand up guy he was very well into "privacy" of himself and his family you could never see this guy in public when he was off the course. Once the dirty laundry got aired forget about it now he wants to be seen and have silly news conferences about crap that any other man out there would have done the same.

Well...Tiger got his first win since the whole thing blew up! Is all forgiven? I think he just needed a pimp role model. Hard having all that money, and access to "stuff", and keeping that squeaky clean image. Hope he keeps it up. He and Tom Watson were the only reasons I ever watched golf.

LOL Tiger Woods.........

In todays society it seems that we all must blame something on someone for some reason. Look at the past few years...we have Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Tiger Woods....they just happen to be black as much as Heath Ledger, The young white girl, Jerry Sandusky etc........ are white.

Each of the people made a bad decision and it cost some their lives and some their livelihood......Was it race who made them make bad decisions?

From all accounts on most of the above people they came from good backgrounds, had good up bringing etc......but simply got caught up in the lifestyle and made bad choices....As people we have FREEDOM of CHOICE but not FREEDOM of CONSEQUENCES, unfortunately the wealthy do not see it that way.

Simply look around at the sports, movie, and recording industry and see how many people really screw up......Normal people in everyday jobs do NOT get the same opportunity. I have witnessed several people where I work get terminated because the flunked a drug test but we do not see that in other areas. MOST care about winning at all cost.

I NEVER watched golf until Tiger Woods came onto the scene, but because of his great skill I watch. Pesronally I think he is smug and his attitude really stinks even after all he has been through.

Michael Jordan was the reason I watched the NBA. Simply the gretest basketball player I had ever seen.

Everyone seems to want to make things about race and that is an easy target. Tiger Woods screwed up and it had nothing to do with race. His mistakes will follow him for a long time and that is a good thing....Maybe just Maybe people are sick and tired of the erosion of values in todays society....But then again all he has to do is win and all willbe forgotten.

Just imagine if he ties Jack...can you imagine the coverage the majors will get.

I will say this though about Tiger....it takes two to tango even though I do not agree with his choices, he didn't do it alone. Groupie chasing, pants dropping, gold digging women are to blame as well.
