There is currently a ton of press right now regarding the situation that Tiger Woods has gotten himself into and after perusing the comments made in regard to the most recent personal statement released by the athlete this morning, I'm pretty upset.
Tiger: you, like any other celebrity, gave up a certain amount of privacy when you became a billion dollar universally known athletic superstar. You are not immune to the same fascination and scrutiny that the likes of Lindsey, Paris and the Kardashian clan receive. Granted, you are not out every night flashing your public intoxication and other signs of poor decision making, but when rumors start to become substantial, the public will want to know. And the intense focus might be even greater considering the fact that this is in every way in direct contrast to the public persona that has been carefully crafted to reflect respect, dignity, morals and values. People feel a bit cheated out of one of the few athletic superstars they felt were actually good role models for their children.
What frustrates me even more is the fact that many of the comments on his webpage speak about Tiger being "human" and that "everybody makes mistakes." No! Not everybody cheats on their wives with multiple people for almost three years. That's not being "human" that's being a ass hole. I don't care who you are or what you do...cheating on your spouse for that amount of time combined with the obvious deception and lies...it's NEVER okay. Why should we, as a public, forgive him for this discretion? Because he has broken every golf record in the world? Still doesn't make you a good person.
Sorry Tiger...but I'm jumping off your bandwagon.
