Default Tiger Woods...

Do you think that the public and sponsors have the right to judge his personal life. IMO. the public should not really be judging. Yes, he did something wrong, but he is an athlete, and tell me, do you really think that he's the first athlete to do this? Also do you believe he deserves to being dropped by all his sponsors? I really think that the public is overreacting to this situation and he needs his space. It's his personal life and the public should not be so worried and interested. JMO, Let Me Know what you think.

If that is really how you feel, than why make a post discussing him???

Sponsors absolutely. Plenty of talented athletes do not get endorsements because of how society views them. Sponsorship is not just about what a person does on the court, field, or golf course, it is the entire image the athlete projects. Luckily for Tiger many of these companies that have invested heavily into golf really have no other option. There are very few Golf players that are marketable for a company like Nike. A sponsor dropping Tiger is not judging his private life, they are protecting there brand.

I personally believe what Tiger did was stupid, selfish, and disgraceful. My motto with these athletes has always been - DON'T GET MARRIED. With that being said I do not think this makes him a horrible person, although what he did was horrible. People are flawed and will make mistakes. Hopefully he learns from it and becomes a better person. The only ones that can truly judge are those directly affected - his wife, kids, and family.

Oh, I was just wondering if there are others that share my view and if not, what they think...

The public shouldn't be judging and yes sponsors should be dropping him.

Who cares what he does, it's his life.

Aren't those contradicting statements?

Public indirectly pays him.

What Tiger does to destroy his wealth is his problem.

I believe Tiger can do anything he wants, hookup with as many Chicks as he wants. But he gotta face the consequences of his actions.

I honestly believe anyone of the other PGA pros would change places with TIger! Chicks,money,wins,problems.

The only thing about divorce that I don't understand is the money issue. I understand Tiger was unfaithful, but $300 million (and moving away) makes everything better?

I dont think any Man will understand how the courts figure out divorce and the "fair" split. errrrrrrrr somehow it rarely works the other way around.

If anything, I think Tiger can survive on the remaining millions. BTW, what the heck do people do with that type of money? If I received, heck, $5 million out of nowhere yesterday I would probably still be a bargain-hunter. lol. I wouldn't buy a $5 million mansion for one person just because I could. I'd just find a nice place to live.
