She is probably boring in bed, but he should have never married her if he is a freak.

He should be ringing up endorsements for Trojans, Viagra, and Ketel 1. Boooooooooooyaaaa!!!

I've lost all respect for the guy. If he had one infidelity, I could possibly be empathetic towards him and hope that Elin would forgive him, but this guy is a perverted PIG who slept around for years and thought the grass was greener on the other side. I don't think there's anything he can do now to repair his deeply tarnished image and he has no one to blame but himself and his wandering peter.

Tiger Woods: 'I Am Deeply Sorry'

2/19/2010 11:15 AM ET By Michael David Smith

In his long-awaited first public statement since a car accident led to revelations of his infidelities, Tiger Woods offered a series of apologies to his friends and family, while defending his wife, Elin, against accusations that she caused the accident by attacking him.

But Woods did not say when he will play golf again, other than to mention at the end of the statement that it could be this year.

"Every one of you has good reason to be critical of me," Woods said to the gathering of his personal friends -- but few reporters -- in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. "I want to say to each of you, simply and directly, I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in. I know people want to find out how I could be so selfish and so foolish. People want to know how I could have done these things to my wife, Elin, and to my children. And while I have always tried to be a private person, there are some things I want to say.

"Elin and I have started the process of discussing the damage caused by my behavior. As Elin pointed out to me, my real apology to her will not come in the form of words. It will come from my behavior over time. We have a lot to discuss. However, what we say to each other will remain between the two of us."

Woods mentioned his educational foundation and suggested that it is his highest priority other than his family, although he may have come across as too corporate when he directed part of his apology to the "staff, board of directors and sponsors."

Woods gave few details about the Thanksgiving weekend car crash on his property, but he did insist that it was not caused by his wife abusing him.

"Elin never hit me that night or any night," Woods said. "There has never been an incident of domestic violence in our marriage. Ever."

Ultimately, Woods said, he takes full responsibility for what he did.

"I was unfaithful," Woods said. "I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame."

Woods decried the media attention that has been paid to him in the last three months, and he specifically noted a story linking him to a doctor who has been accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

"Some people have made up things that never happened and said I used performance-enhancing drugs. This is completely and utterly false," Woods said.

Woods asked the media to leave his family alone, and claimed that his young daughter had been followed to nursery school, and he said of the media, "They staked out my wife and they pursued my mom."

Woods also mentioned his religious beliefs, saying, "I was raised a Buddhist and I actively practiced my faith in childhood before I drifted away in recent years."

Although he didn't specifically address reports that he has been living in a sexual addiction rehabilitation clinic, Woods said he has "more treatment and more therapy" ahead.

Woods, who hugged his mother at the end of his statement, said he will play golf again, but he's not sure when.

"I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don't know when that day will be. I don't rule out that it will be this year."

For a statement from Woods on the course, the golf world will have to wait.

Sorry - but Tiger has sold himself as Mr Perfect on and off the golf course. He has made over half a billion dollars in endorsement deals based on his clean cut image.

IMO the only real aspect of Tiger's life has been his ability to win golf tournaments consistently with his skill and determination. He is entitled to celebrate the success that follows and the half million odd dollars he has earnt in prizemoney, appearance fees and golf associated deals. Good luck doing so.

If you are a sexual pervert then remain single and play the field. Good luck if thats how you want to live. But dont put yourself up on a pedestal and market yourself as something you are not, A pristene perfect family man who has never done anything wrong anywhere / anytime. That was the image rolled out at all times (frauduantly)

The interview was all smoke and mirrors, exactly in the same mould as he has lived his life over the past few years. He really said nothing and achieved nothing more than a token ( completely controlled and artificial) apology to appease the nobody in particular. Pure arrogance.

Stand up. be a man. Tell your wife you are a pervert, let her end the marriage and save her the embarrassment and shame that she will endure being beside you. Pay her what she deserves and continue to pay what you should for the rest of your life. Then go back to living the life in the gutter that you really want to pursue. I wouldnt give a crap about your personal life, just dont ever try to ram your image down our throats again and try to make money out of it. Take your endorsement deals from Nike and other golf related companies because you can most definitely use them better than anyone who has ever lived. But stick the Gillette ads up your coit because you definitely arent " THE BEST A MAN CAN GET" as Gillette likes to tell us.

I don't condone what he did, but he doesn't owe me, or anyone else in the public an apology. This is between him, his wife and kids, and his imediate family. I just want to watch him play golf. Anything else, short of a criminal act against society... I don't care.

I don't understand the animosity with Tiger. He didn't break any laws, he didn't rape anyone, he didn't get drunk and kill anyone, he didn't murder dogs, he didn't shoot himself in the leg, he didn't piss in public (i.e. Reed), he didn't do illegal drugs (i.e. Holmes) yet people are more pissed off about what he did with other consenting individuals. Sometimes the hypocrisy on this board is overwhelming.

Roethlisberger is accused of raping a woman, while i have serious concerns about the validity of that, not a single person has posted publicly about their disappoint with Ben in any manner approaching what Tiger did. I cannot understand the hatred. He played golf and is a savvy and intelligent business man. He never played on some clean cut image, he played on his golf game deliberately keeping his family out of the spotlight. What he does in his private life is his business.

However the true sign of hypocrisy will come when you turn on the TV to watch him win the Masters and mark my word, the ratings will come back. Tiger won't miss a beat.

There is no hypocrisy here SteelersinCA - only pure disgust at the pain and embarrassment he himself has brought upon his wife wife and children - innocent parties - because he couldn't keep Mr. Happy in his pants and his own egotistical sense of self-entitlement . . .

I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled.

By his own actions, he has now PUT his wife and children IN the spotlight. The media follow Elin and the children around and they have very little privacy as a result of his sexual addiction and perversion.

Comparing Ben's situation to that of Tiger's is apples and oranges imho. Though I am a vehement opponent to anyone being violated against their will, I think most of us can smell :bs: a mile away and figure out what McNasty's game plan is. In addition, Ben has the reputation of being a ladies man and is SINGLE. He doesn't have a wife and children whose lives will be adversely affected by his sexual appetite.

Finally, yes - Tiger did play on some clean cut image. By his own statement yesterday . . .

Parents used to point to me as a role model for their kids. I owe all those families a special apology. I want to say to them that I am truly sorry.

The true sign of hypocrisy will come when you turn on the TV to watch him win the Masters and mark my word, the ratings will come back. Tiger won't miss a beat.

I respect him as the greatest golfer to ever play the game, but as a person, a husband and a father? Nope, nada, nein - not going to happen.

Maybe that's the difference HTG, I don't expect any more out of athletes than what they are paid to do. I don't look at any of them as a role model, nor will I allow my son to. There is nothing about being paid millions and being greedy that I find endearing. In that light, I'm all for whatever someone wants to do to enhance their performance. It's their body, it's their choice. If sex helps his game, so be it.

I don't understand why he stays married, but it's not my business and doesn't really affect me in any way. I'm not tuning in to watch a soap opera, I'm tuning in to watch good golf. However I still think people crying about what Tiger did in his private life is hypocritical. I judge everyone by the same measuring stick, I don't care if Ben had consensual sex with an ugly woman and I don't care if Tiger had sex with 27 gorgeous women. Money and fame bring certain things to the table that the ordinary person doesn't have to deal with. I don't know what it's like therefore I cannot judge. I surmise it would be very difficult for a man in Tiger's position to resist the constant temptation and I have said as much all along. My mom always told me walk a mile in someone's shoes before you judge them.

In that event, he shouldn't have married and had children. I'm sure he had just as many "temptations" before he met his wife and decided to marry her and bring children into the world knowing that he had these "temptations". Hell - this slug was dickie dunkin' while Elin was pregnant. :shake02:

Sorry - in this case, can no do. There is no way in hell I could or would ever put three people I claim to love and have a moral duty to protect through the deep hurt, anguish and public humiliation Tiger Woods has placed upon his wife and little ones. Not in a million years. I guess in that respect, we ARE different. :noidea:

I don't think he thought he would ever get caught. I don't really think people who cheat on their spouses see it as hurting their spouse or kids. I dunno, again, haven't been there. I find it difficult to feel sorry for a spouse of a professional athlete. They know what they are getting into way ahead of time. Doesn't make it right, but they know the deal. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

I was baffled that the major networks cut into their scheduled programs to carry this press conference live. What he did stinks, but I don't see the importance the networks put on that. That's something I think should be reserved to serious news events, not Tiger.

Also loved the coverage of a couple of his mistresses watching, then being devasted that he didn't mention them. :huh:

They chose to have an affair with a married man, yet they feel they've been wronged?? I just don't get that. :doh:

I was also struck how he vehemently denied that his wife had attacked him. It seemed sincere which is disappointing. I had hoped all along that she had kicked his ass that night.

So do the men when they choose to propose marriage. They too know what they are getting into and if they aren't willing to commit to a wife and the children that comes along during that marriage, then they shouldn't be getting married and taking vows in the first place.

I don't disagree, I don't feel sorry for Tiger's wife or Tiger, they knew what they were doing. As for the chics who want an apology, uh, who told the media about it and put you in the spotlight? Not Tiger, why should he apologize to you?

There are also reports that Tiger cheated on his wife in rehab, I find it most amusing. He needs to just get divorced and be done. Then he can do whoever he wants.

I think I feel more sorry for Tiger's kids than anything else. They didn't ask to be fathered by a sexually addicted pervert.

I agree - those ho-bags deserve no apology. They knew up front that he was a married man with children and are doing nothing but looking for a big payday in the form of rag magazines, book deals, etc.

There are also reports that Tiger cheated on his wife in rehab, I find it most amusing. He needs to just get divorced, be castrated and be done.

There - fixed that for ya. :thumbsup: :chuckle: :wink: That would solve his perversion and he'd still be able to swing away with that club. :thumbsup: Of course peeing out of his ears would be a bit of an inconvenience. :chuckle:

Link?

That's the first I heard of it. And I really don't believe it.

I think the one thing that's indisputable here is that tiger wants to save his family. The easiest thing in the world would have been for him to just walk away from the marriage, claim he either wasn't ready for marriage or insinuate Elin just maybe wasn't his soul mate after all.

To go before the nation and publically state you've been as ass is surely not the path of least resistance.

Tiger's no hero, he was wrong to carry-on the way he did being as he is a married man. But he's far from alone in it. Men of power, wealth, and influence cheat. It's been like that since the beggining of time, and it will be like that until it all comes to an end. The biggest thing that seperates men like Tiger from the average Joe is money and opportunity. I'm 49 now and I think I've matured to a degree that i could rise above the sort of temptations Tiger faced ( and created) on a daily basis. But when i was his age I could all but guarantee I would have succumbed as readily as he did.

Sure it is to some people. A ton of people are addicted to internet porn, often to the detriment of their careers or family life.

Or how about the guy who drains his bank account at the strip club.

Obviously addiction is a sign or weakness, be it drugs,food, gambling, porn, or even the internet for that matter. And some people are more susceptable to addiction than others. But you're damn straight that people can be addicted to sex.

Now I'm not saying that was the case with Tiger. In fact I'll go as far as to say it wasn't. Because personally I think the only thing Tiger was addicted to was himself. What's going to be interesting in this whole thing going foward is whether Tiger can stifle his ego enough to satisfy the requirements of married life while maintaining the edge he had to be the very best at his proffesion? :noidea:
