Even when this whole ordeal blew up I didn't lose any sleep. I didn't really think much about it, I got my own life ahhaha. I feel bad for him, I mean I do not support his actions but I feel bad for him and others like him where the media makes it look worse then it already was.

Bottom line is it should be between him and his wife. It is none of my business. It is none of your business. I am not condoning what he did, but I have other things to worry about. This happens every day. Only difference here is he is rich and famous. It does suck watching golf without him though :)

The dude's got a BOATLOAD of cash...and is/was getting all kinds of "nookie"!:)

Even if he gets divorced...he will still have a boatload of cash...and will still be getting all kinds of nookie!

I'm not concerned for him in the least...he's not going to go homeless or hungry!;)

Agreed. What's really a shame is that it's not Tiger who ends up paying for this as much as his (ex)wife and kids who will now be relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi as long as the story piques the interest of the public at large.

All i came think about is how good he would/could have been or how many Majors he could have won IF he didnt have this infidelity stuff on his mind.
I mean the bloke is a awesome athlete ATM but if he went into every game he played without the weight of the world on his shoulders, wondering if his wife is going to find out about his flings, then he would be of been RIGHT AT THE TOP his game and even further ahead of the field than he is now ...
Just food for thought

really, tonnes of people cheat on each other, why is everyone so concerned this time? When it boils down to it, Woods is just 1 of 7 million, just like the rest of us

Who cares? He's a just golfer for heavens' sake, not the Pope! He plays games - he doesn't promote any particular moral position. Leave the guy alone and let him sort out his problems.

Let's see, that was the question....

He was wooden, robotic, measured, and rehearsed. He tried to show emotion a couple of times when saying "I'm sorry" but they were forced, flat, and phony. He did show real emotion once. That emotion was anger. From a PR perspective, I'd give him a D-
