Tiger's new commercial an exploitative disgrace

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.

well, I would say if you are using that argument, you are just an ardant Tiger supporter.  I think he has a point, the sheep that flock around Tiger and see him as a God could never acknowledge anything negative about him.

What is a disgrace is all the comments and concerns on what Tiger Woods has done!  No one in the world should hold themselves on a high moral standard.  What secrets do you have?

So redwings1969 you think you know Tigers father better than him?  You are clueless and a utter disgrace.  Those of you who think their father would not support you in YOUR time of need, need to get better fathers.  You disgust me with you self righteous indignation.  Tiger should tell the lot of you to go crap in your hat.

BRavo.  Freeman is being dramatic to sell himself. He is exploited the misdeeds of Tiger, the pain of Elin and their children to elevate his own status. Shame on you Freeman, shame on you.

Damn, this is a  message Im in total agreement with you....The media attempts to make Money off the Stardom, the middle of the road and the fall....whatever it takes....got to make my money....and the excuse..just reporting. LMAO Freeman, you are piece of shit but of course it is not you..it's all Tiger.  Oh, now you know he isn't sorry...LMAO; Oh now , you are different those who you defended Tiger against...Laughing my damn ass off. Your reason for defending him is because he is black....and now you need to change the flow of the raft..Tiger did nothing wrong in this commercail....but you have decided he did....is that any different from the judgement  that is being done for months.....It is no way in hell you canmake the jump from saying Tiger was ok before now but not after a commercial....which i doubt you know what the commercail was attempting to do...LMAO. Freeman, you have lost my defending you....lol

Tiger is a disgrace and finally Mike Freeman has found a bottom past which he will not go.  This commercial is just plain sick.  All of his defenders on here are so full of it, I could only read a few of them.

I've never bought nor worn anything with a swoosh on it. And I never will. And I am a graduate of the University of Nike in Eugene, Oregon.
