    I think, considering his offenses, Tiger handled things with as much class as a man in his situation could. He went away, he came back with a respectable apology. And his wife, bless her, didn't leave him, take his money and go to the papers. Best case scenario for the children.

    I would have liked it better if he had worn a tall hat and tux and sung a public rendition of Geroge Strait's 'If you're thinking, you want a stranger, there's one coming home"
    OR

    Alternatively, LTD's "Stranger"

    Disagree. Why not just ignore the whole thing? What would have happened? It would have blown over and it would have been better for his family to have had a lower profile. Everyone wanted to see a sideshow and that's what they got.

    I believe that when it's your own intimate family/friends. Not with strangers. With strangers/public it just creates more problems than it solves. Sometimes the least said, the soonest mended.

    But it's not like this was private business between himself and his wife. It was a HUGE scandal. In order for him to be able to move forward, he has to abolish the elephant in the room between him and the public. His public image is his job -- corporate sponsorships comprise nearly 90 percent of his annual income, according to ESPN.

    Because he is a public figure, any time he is in public the press would ask him about it. Better to have a statement, answer a couple questions [which he has yet to do], and then get on with his life. Once he is asked a question and says he will not answer a couple times, they'll stop asking once they know they won't get anywhere. Why delay the inevitable.

    Oh, I think Tiger would/could still have an amazing career without a public apology. It's his job as husband and father to keep the media at bay, and keep boundaries intact, regardless of money. Just because he has little privacy as a celebrity, doesn't mean he has to be a victim to that, or fuel it.


    To Jock: Because the media are whores and they love a scandal. You give them a taste, and they'll clamor for more. He should not allow them or the public to make him their bitch.

    Besides, like Halla said, all he should apologize to is his wife anyway, if even that; we have no idea of their relationship, nor should we. Who says fucking groupies is so wrong? Our country is a bunch of righteous bigots.

    Nobody really doubts that, but it really does make it is easier for him if he gets it out of the way in one shot. He will be asked these questions, he will face scrutiny, it is an inevitability for someone of his international appeal, so it is better to face it all on his own terms.

    Regardless of whether one feels like they shouldn't have to play into the paparazzi and media game, the fact of the matter is that the media forces you to play it. Really isn't a way around that, short of disappearing, which hurts him athletically and economically.
