Tiger Woods Mea Culpa, Real or Fake?
Wild Bluff Media » Celebrity » Tiger Woods Mea Culpa, Real or Fake?

Here’s my take on it. I don’t care. I don’t care what Tiger did, who he did it with, or if he is truly sorry for doing it. For me this is true for any celebrity. I don’t watch their movies or TV shows, listen to their music, or watch them play sports because they are paragons of virtue. I do it because it entertains me. What they do in their private lives is there business. This ridiculous media-fueled fascination the public has with these people is absurd, disturbing, and frankly cruel. There are few enough members of the public or media whose lives could stand up to the same scrutiny. I don’t want to know about their personal lives. I just want to enjoy their performances be it on the big screen, stage, or golf course. All this media attention has done is made life even harder for these people and their families and ruined my Sunday afternoons watching golf.

    I am with you,Walt.He is a great golfer and he is the reason I watch golf.I do not care about his personal life.

    Well said and for me the same goes with politicals IF they spend their own money on their sexual adventures(including lesbian fetish clubs RNC)

    I agree also. I might think to myself, “Wow, what a lowlife.” “or “How stupid could you be”, but that’s the extent of it. The idea that he owes ME an apology is absolutely ludicrous! He didn’t do anything to me, or to hurt me, or against me. Heck, he doesn’t even know me or anything about me (I assume). Why does he owe me an apology and what difference could it possibly make whether I deem his apology sincere or not?
    If I bought Gillette products, it wouldn’t have been because he endorsed them, and the video game (had I owned it) would play the same regardless what he did.

    We have a long standing tradition of leading sports figures being heroes to our children. While all you urbane, sophisticated, adults don’t care what (or who), the likes of Tiger Woods does, the little ones do. It makes a big difference if their sports heros are not good guys through and through.
