AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Just saw the new Tiger Woods Nike commercial and almost threw up.

Just in case you haven't seen it, Woods' father does a voiceover as the camera pans in on Woods' face. Woods says nothing, it's just his father talking. Woods stares unblinking at the camera as his father speaks.

His father, of course, is dead.

Now, there's bad taste, and then there's using your dead father to move product.

Throughout this entire scandal, I've defended Woods (somewhat) from all the hypocrites who chastise Woods for his infidelity, while many of them are bagging their own women on the side. I also thought Woods' apology tour was sincere.

Then came this disgusting commercial.

He lost me and he likely lost the few defenders he had.

Woods needs to keep a low profile and play golf. He doesn't need to use his dead pops to sell more golf clubs.

Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

Somehow, I think you are right...Freeman was riding Tiger shirt tail because he isblack.....I agree. I think he is also  wrote this because he (Tiger is black). Trust me, how in the hell could I possibly know any of this is true....but like Freeman's read on the the commercail , this is my read on this article. He wants to make us all think that he is not Racist! Freeman, is a Racist and money hungry. I didn't want to belive it but this article t makes me believe it is true.

Tiger is a man, married man that obviously went  out screwing around...he has to pay for that...he is paying for it and will continue to do so.  Im sure so many spouse have done that....Obivously that is wrong....I wonder if having sex before marriage is wrong? How many more people would this bring in the  mix ...of screwing up?  I could keep going about all the damn mistakes we make...and make light of them and still judges others using God and morals. I think we should in some sense....but not to a point where we are trying to put ourselves on a pedstal....half if not more than that hate Tiger strictly be cause he black and  is the best Golfer in  the world. It has nothing to do with him and his wife....not a damn thing(that is the sad part). Those that dislike him for screwing on his wife and for that only....I understand(do you care)....nevertheless, be sure and im absolutle sure there is no one I mean no who hasnt made mistakes....and expect those mistakes be forgotten.....150% percent sure of this!

Freeman you need to stilck with  writng about Sports......

Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

Dogteam5, uhh...dude you gayness is showing. I haven't seen that much homoeroticism uuhh...ever on this site. Save that for the gay porn sites, I think you may have a bright future there. Anyways, back to my goal of trashing Elling...
In other news, CBS sports hack Steve Elling was arrested outside of the Woods home in West Palm, FL. Elling was found rummaging through the Woods' garbage with multiple discarded pairs of underwear stuffed into his pockets believed to be worn by Tiger. Elling was visibly upset and disheveled while being led to the police cruiser. Officers stated that Elling was muttering the question "Why not me too Tiger? Always a bridesmaid." repetitively during questioning. Elling was later released and transferred to a local psychiatric hospital and placed on a 72 hr hold and suicide watch.

Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

You are right....We have the right to judge.....He chose to win and take the opportunity that were presented to him....we all do. Yes, we have the right to just a damn shame , we have so many chumps on their knees who wish they could be Tiger....and have their butt holes wide open for him to make it hurt when he that when(if) he continue to win all these people on the board with so much hate...keep talking it in the butt....yea, let all those who have the right to judge....keep judging(like you) amd keep letting Tiger keep pumping you in the ass.   I hope you are young, so, you can handle it all.....

Tiger, I will tell you are entertaining all...those that like the way you play golf...and those that HATE you. You were doing that before the media let us know about the Trasy women  and how you hurt your family and you will continue to entertain us all....even if you became the nicest , sweetest  guy whoever won 21 Majors. Here's hoping you keep entertaing me as a winner 9hopefully, no more trashy women issues) and you keep entertaing the haters because you keep winning.

We know...none of those haters ever bought a car or clubs because they hate you....Those that are judging you......did they help you make those 40 or 50 millions dollors....if so, their BUTT must be damn sore.....if n t...Im sure you don't give a damn;-)

What you think think he gives a damn if your butt sore? Oh, by the way...I never bought  any Golf clubs or a buick...Im absolutley sure , I never will;-)

No, he doesn't want keep watching ...keep writing ...keep wishing for his downfall....he will keep making that 40 to 50 millions...maybe you should stop dropping your pants, getting on your knees and tooting up ypur butt for Tiger.

Steve Ellings Tears

Oh the joy I feel in my heart. Steve Elling, senior golf sports writer for CBS, has incessantly written Tigercentric article after article, hoping and praying for a meltdown of epic proportions today from Tiger. Elling has written more about Tigers  personal life over the past 6months than TMZ, The National Enquirer, and UsWeekly combined. Scathing, pointed articles all written from our perspective, the outside. He has dreamed up scenario after scenario about Woods' return, in none was this return even a possibility. I was always a lukewarm fan of Tiger, but I have become more of a fan because of Elling. Not because I approve of what he did, but more because he hasn't ever let any part of the media in, because he tells people like Elling to suck it, with a cold shoulder and a blatant dis-acknowledgement of the bottom feeders of the media's existence. To that I say, bravo. And today, when Tiger strolled up to the first tee with a warm welcome (to the Masters for christ sake, where he a four time champion, not a marriage values rally, a promise keepers meeting, or to give a speech on the value of fidelity mind you), striped it down the middle, and proceeded to have the best opening round at the Masters he has produced, i only strengthened his defiance towards all those who desperately wanted him to fail in his profession like he did with his marital vows. To put it in Tigerspeak, he gave Elling and the rest of the media a money shot to the eye, and then asked if they wanted a bukake party afterward. If he puts the green jacket on this Sunday, we might see Ellings obituary on Monday.

Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

Question: Did anyone think that Tiger wouldn't have gone so buck wild, if his Dad was living?  I did and thought that the loss of his Dad may have begun his self destructive behavior.  As a kid who lost his father at 9 and having gone to a school for fatherless boys since then til graduation, I can tell you that loss is immense.  So for me, that commercial was right on the mark, just seems it didn't meet your expectations.  We have learned to lower the off-course expectations. Just enjoy the on-course GREATNESS!
