    He's a man first. No one in their real mind really expected him to keep his nerdy dick in his pants when all that hot tail is on the prowl? I'm not surprised, and at this point, his apology would be ineffective.

    Funny how the money and corps control everything (going with the business angle), even when it comes to celebrity mores, which in itself sounds like an oxymoron--in every which way. Corrupt business telling corrupt celebrity to apologize to pathetic masses. It's just too gross.

    Translation: YOU can't be counted upon to remain faithful, and project that characteristic onto other men.

    As for Tiger, I couldn't care less; I ain't his wife or kids. I suppose some parents who actually used him as a role-model for children might be upset enough to want an apology, but it still doesn't mean anything at this point.

    Wrong. That means he's a human being first, so people shouldn't look to him to be above reproach in line with all of that temptation.

    Private life should stay private. Even with celebrities or politicians, it's none of our business.

    They marketed this guy as wholesome American Pie. So he was paid for that image. So I understand why he is suffering.

    Humanity combined with money and fame is not an excuse for infidelity (especially not serial infidelity). That doesn't make him Hitler, but it does make him a man who repeatedly betrayed his wife and kids, apparently with multiple women. No one is advocating he wear a Scarlet Letter, but a little bit of negative social sanction is not uncalled for.

    hee hee, yeah, he took the money and played the part... so now he has to do the dance.

    But really, like others have said, I don't want to be privy to anyone's personal life and I certainly don't need this on the evening news. This is why I don't turn the tv on anymore.

    My favorite part about his apology was the Stare of Death Kim Jong-Il was giving him the whole time.
