    I don't get what the big deal about this is anymore. He cheated. Yes, that sucks. I feel bad for his wife and kids. And yes, he brought emotional pain and suffering to them. But you know what? There are so many worse things he could have done. He didn't kill anyone. He didn't beat anyone up. He didn't extort money or cause thousands of people to lose their jobs. He didn't torture and rape anyone. He's a guy who cheated. It's happened to millions of women. Doesn't make it right, but it doesn't make Tiger the worst guy in the world, either.

    Put it in perspective, people.
    I totally agree with you. He is a regular, normal man. He is not a "god", just a man who plays golf and gets paid for it. He still gets up every morning and puts his pants on, one leg at a time - just like all the rest of the men out there. Why does anyone actually care that he was unfaithful? I don't - thats a problem for him & his wife to work through, not for the rest of us. I don't in any way approve of his actions, but it's really none of my business.

    Thank you! I've had several relationships end b/c of cheating. My thoughts? If he'd rather be with her, go for it. And six months later, guess who's calling me? Ha, ha, fat chance, buddy. You got yours and I've moved on.

    All the other things going on in the world today and THIS is headline news? A golfer cheating on his wife? Seriously? You literally could not pay me enough to be a celebrity today. God knows I'd end up splashed all over the news: Surlygirly gets ticket for going 10 mph over posted limit. SG and husband have argument over Christmas tree lights. SG sighted going into Target today wearing New York & Co. jogging suit, hair mussed. SG chooses Honey Wheat Bread over Whole Grain. Whoo! Let the jokes begin, George Lopez!

    Ditto, Anapuni and Surlygirly. This is a private matter.

    You can't say that infidelity doesn't hurt anyone, doesn't have enormous repercussions. The news is that a woman in her fifties has been taken from the house to the hospital in a bad state....is this a parental heart attack or an overdose caused by the stress of Tiger not keeping his pecker in his pants?

    No, I don't think anyone's saying that. Everyone knows an affair does not involve just two people. There are spouses, friends, family, on both sides who are greatly affected. It's just this crazy media frenzy over a deeply personal issue that makes me cringe.

    It seems that Elin's mom is the one that was taken ill.

    Poor guys, what a hell of a holiday season for them.

    I certainly wasn't saying that! I have experienced it myself & it does hurt. But, just as I thought that my situation was private & no body else's business, so too do I think that about Tiger Woods.

    I understand first hand what cheating does to a marriage. That's how my first one ended. My ex-husband thought it was perfectly acceptable to move in with his girlfriend but didn't want us to get divorced. His poor mother, her live-in, his brother, and her girlfriend all got dragged into the mess. I know cheating has repercussions on everyone close to the family. All I was saying is that compared to the other awful things going on in the world- rape, torture, mass-murder...a guy cheating is pretty low on my list of Very Bad People.

    Yes, you will find it in the "adult" section.

    No thanks, I'm good where I stand. (And my cheating days are WAY in my past...but that's another story.) Besides, I'm a crappy golfer.

    When it rains, it pours. It's incredible, really. Tiger was in the spotlight for more than a dozen years as the best golfer and the world's wealthiest athlete. But despite all the fame and glory, his private life remained just that. Private, with not a hint of any serious personal/family problem or scandal.

    All that suddenly came to an end on Thanksgiving Weekend.

    And now, the mistresses are coming out of the woodwork. 12, at last count and growing. Guess that since Tiger's promiscuity has been laid bare for the entire world to see and no more hush money can be extracted, these women might as well spill the beans to the press and get whatever they can at this point.

    As the list of alleged mistresses grow, some of Tiger's sponsors are no longer staunchly supporting him. Indeed, some of his biggest endorsement deals (like Gatorade and Gilette) could be in jeopardy.

    This has turned into such a big mess that even if Tiger is able to save his marriage, even if the public by-and-large forgives him,....... things will never be the same for him. His life has changed... forever.

    just watched last saturday's SNL with its satire of the woods debacle. i couldn't really bring myself to laugh at a skit that essentially portrays someone being brutally attacked by his/her spouse and begging for help.

    that said, after reading the posts so far on this thread, it's quite telling that many of the women posting opine that there are worse things that a celebrity/athlete could do and really, it's none of our business, role model status accepted by said person or not. in contrast, it's the other gender who breathlessly reports every new development in this long-running bit of gossip. such puerile and exuberant displays of schadenfreude are proof of poverty of rectitude.

    and can i just say how lame it is that the american public expects a celebrity/athlete philanderer to trot out before cameras and apologize to all of us, often with his wife behind him, both tearful & triumphant? i'd love to see an end to such a screwy convention, starting with tiger. only morons think the broadcasting of one's begging for forgiveness after cheating does any good for the actual parties involved or for the nosy public. it's as sensible as a flashing neon bandaid on a gaping, spurting and pus-filled wound--all show, no therapeutic effect.

    This forum is what it is. Last I heard, it's not a foum devoted exclusively to the content of the Jim Lehrer News Hour or Charlie Rose. However one's feelings are towards the problems of the world's most successful golfer, it is being publicized by the mainstream broadcast and cable news outlets.

    The thing about the contents of Hawaii Threads is that the threads and the discussions are all labeled so folks have an idea of what to expect before clicking on that link. The title of this particular thread is pretty much self-explanatory. If details of this topic is one that does not interest a person, then one can simply ignore it and move on to another thread without having one's senses be offended by the talk of the "philistines" among them. That would be the sensible suggestion, since it doesn't appear that the reports/developments on this Tiger Woods story is going to end anytime soon, and all the highbrow lectures here certainly won't stop the media's pursuit of this topic.

    This whole thing reminds me of a Saks Fifth Avenue shopper who goes into Ross Dress For Less, simply to mock out loud (at any other Ross customer within earshot) about the quality of the merchandise. What would be the point of doing that? It says a lot more about the Saks shopper than does the Ross shopper.

    So with no apologies offered,.....

    Gatorade has made the decision to drop its Tiger Wood energy drink, but says the decision was already made before the scandal hit.

    Tiger has just released a public statement, saying that he is taking an "indefinite break" from golf and to work on being "a better husband, father, and person."

    Needless to say, the sport of golf will sorely miss him while he is gone. But with all of the turmoil surrounding him, he wouldn't be doing the PGA, his fellow golfers, his sponsors, and most importantly, his family any good by not addressing his problems first.

    didn't say you couldn't post about this. also didn't say you shouldn't post about it. neither did i care to extract an apology from you or anyone else.

    what i did state is my opinion about the kind of folk who enjoy dancing upon others' faults and miseries.

    Would he take a break if he was a quarterback on a pro team? Can a golfer be an athlete if he takes a break from the team?

    Sure. Like any professional athlete, time can be taken out to recover from a medical problem or to treat other conditions. Say, for example, the quarterback or golfer or other type of athlete had .... satyriasis.

    It's gone on to $25 grand 15 girl three day orgies and naked pictures being published.

    Maybe the guy should simply admit that he doesn't want to be married and he has more fun being wildly rich and single.

    He'll only get depressed if he has to remain faithful and quit golf. She should cut him loose.
