For me Tiger Woods Adultery issues should should have been dealt with out of the public spotlight, and I think the media should of backed of. Sure what he did was bad, however Tiger Woods fame is for his greatness in golf. Thats what sports fans care about. The stuff about Tiger Woods that have been shown the past few months is just junk tv. David Letterman didn't get this type of heat and he did the same thing.

Quite unfortunately the scandalous stuff sells. That is why we have soo much crap tv and reality shows. I personally could care less what famous person is doing what, it's not my business.

reality shows are on tv because there cheap to make. there not only cheap to me but i believe most of them are pure crap. oh i also feel so helpless as all they show is nothing but scandalous stuff on tv. crap tv sells but its also all they show. oh what will become of us. we have no choice but to be amish but just on tv and not with other electronics as that would suck.

As celebrities, they need to face more temptations than us. How many people can really resist this kind of things? On the other hand, celebrities are just regular folk like you and me. They could make all kinds of mistakes. Nonetheless they make more money than us. They get more attention under spotlight. So they need more effort to behave themselves. God is fair. When you get more, you need to give more!

Being a public figure is really an image that you should take good care when you are in. It is one of the assets that needs a clean image or else if you would carry it recklessly you would pay for it to be restored back to its original state. I do believe that it is not the media who is hyperventilating it but the people he had victimized are trying to make money out of it. They realize that since they were used by Tiger they could make some money if they expose themselves out in the public and get some money out of it.

Well I think if I was one of the victims I really do not need let media know it but I will be the first to volunteer the information to make some money if I am that in need of money. I think media just follows this kind of leads to sell them to the public.

I agree with what you say, my friend. Tiger Woods life is a private matter. On whatever happen to his life Media and other people shouldn't help out of the danger he faces. Even the endanger relationship of his wife. Media and all people doesn't have any idea to help that person. Why should they care if they can't help. That is his life and what matter most is that tiger woods didn't say anything to hurt them... He is famous and should live to be a good models to anyone but he's not a saint that never commit a sin...?

I don't give a crap aout Tiger's personal life. I wish that the media would just shut up about him, and move on to real news. Why is this such a media issue, and why there there still people out there who are actually interested in his $h!t? It's just like the O J Simpson thing.

yeah they talk about his image needs to be repaired and making a tv apology but you know what? i don't care. he owes no one on tv an apology. he only owes one to his wife and maybe to the people who didn't know he was married but highly doubt they didn't know he was married. i don't even care about his golf. golf is boring.

Hey elmiko! I am so disgusted and tired of hearing about Tiger Woods! I think he is a disgusting pig and if his wife decides to stay with him she is a stupid moron! He deserves what he gets for being a stupid azz player! He is nothing but a male ho! I couldn't care less about him! I don't even thing he should be allowed to play golf anymore either! But, I'm sure he will be able to go back to playing golf and everyone will forget what he's done in a few months! How sad this is! He is a very sick man!

I couldn't agree more. Now what if every man in the world had to hold a press conference to repent for committing adultery....He is no different than any other man. He has his occupation that puts him on TV, big deal. He is just a man and has the right to some privacy regardless of his job. How many executives and big shots at his former sponsors are squeaky clean when it comes to adultery? Leave Tiger alone so he can either fix his marriage or move on...

No, not me! But with all of the fuss going on, I was like "Is he the same person?" Sometimes paparazzis should just let him live the way that he should. His issues should be kept within their family only. This issues makes me frown, it is not just right.

The truth is Tiger is an obscenely rich black man with the nerve to marry a white woman. This fact alone makes many people hate Tiger. Many women are jealous of Elin for securing a legacy for her family. Imagine an uneducated, no talented babysitter scoring a coo like Tiger Woods and all the benefits that go along with it. Every detail of their lives with make front page news forever.

I don't believe that anyone looks up to David Letterman but there are millions of children, as well as their parents, who looked up to Tiger. He was more than a talented golfer. His foundation, the Tiger Woods Foundation, focuses on helping young people with such things as character development programs, scholarships, grants, junior golf teams, and the Tiger Woods Learning Center. How could he continue to be effective in his role there unless he showed some of the same character traits they promote? He was also a product spokesperson and his sponsors were, understandably, concerned that many parents would be hesitant to purchase Tiger Woods endorsed products. He was a respected public figure so these revelations about his personal life were news. He did the right thing by making the public apologies he made today and, hopefully, he truly is on the road to recovery.

Yeah. Well welcome to modern day media. It's stupid about how they only seem to care about politics nowadays. It's pretty stupid. But unlike past years where it was about actual news, it is now all about getting the most ppl nowadays, and unlike before, people nowadays care less about politics and more about the obnoxious lives of celebrities. and it's stupid cuz I don't care anything about celebrities' lives. What happened to tiger was between him and his wife, and doesnt involve us.

I agree with you, what he did should of been dealt with privately, thats his private life, between him and his wife. I don't see why all those women had to go and make it public, unless they thought there might of been some money involved, and I don't understand why they all decided to come out at the same time, what was that all about. I think it is just junk tv too, and I don't think they should of done it the way they did, who cares...

I do mind Tiger Woods. I do agree with you that issues about him should be dealt with out of spotlight. What is important is he already realized that he committed mistakes. He already asked for an apology. Hope he is sincere.

Hi, elmiko. I am tired of hearing about his infidelity. What is done is done. There is nothing that can change that. Tiger will just have to pick up the pieces of his life and mend it back together. Only he can do this. As far as his passion for golf is concerned, he will have to resume this as he sees fit. Tiger and his wife, will be the persons that will have to make the final decisions from here on.

Although I strongly disagree with what Tiger Woods has done, I am outraged at how the media have seemed to take great pleasure in ruining this man's reputation and picking apart such an "innocent and beloved figure." It's like the media enjoys turning Woods from a sporting icon to some "scandalous, heartless being who has dragged his wife through hell."

i have to agree with you however, i am sure a lot of young golfers dont really look up to dave letterman (or any other young kids for that matter). i agree with you in the sense, the only one tiger really owes something to is his wife!

In my opinion the media should leave the private life of Tiger Woods. As a human we are not perfect we commits mistakes. It is his private life and we are nothing to do with that. Although he is a role model for the aspiring golfers because of the bad reputations he had some of his fans turn there back to him. Although it is hard to get back his reputation but some of his fans can imitate how he played but not his life which is true.

I agree, but unfortunately there are many people who live to enjoy other people's dirty laundry. So the news organizations and tabloids get a big charge out of printing and showing celebrity infedelities and such and since Tiger had such a squeeky clean image, he was the perfect candidate to use as an example. So there will be more such scandals in the future. I think the whole thing went way over board, did he really need a 13 minute press conference taking out 13 minutes of other regular shows that are on at that time to apologize to us all. He needed to apologize to his wife, children, and family and even his sponsors, but not to everyone in America. I really honestly don't care. It does not affect my life in any way shape or form so he did not have to apologize to me at all, and I am sure many people feel the same as well. I do think though that it might help him a little to make people not resent him so much when he decides to go back to golfing again.

I don't, but I have to admit that apology was pretty hilarious. He is not sorry for cheating on his wife.
