ORLANDO, Fla. -- When will the celebrity media leave Tiger Woods and his family alone? Don't hold your breath.

Woods made a passionate and defiant plea – more of a demand, really – to the press and paparazzi in his speech Friday to leave his wife and kids alone. He said tabloid photographers had stalked his 2-year-old on the way to daycare and implored people to back off.

Woods' kids attend a pricy daycare located about 1.5 miles from my house.

There are currently eight photographers camped outside the daycare at this very moment, presumably hoping to get a money shot of Elin Woods as she picks up, or drops off, her children.

Message ignored.

Woods speech falls on deaf tabloid ears

Ellings' Cheshire-cat grin comes through loud and clear as you read this article. Tiger has never been too buddy-buddy with the press, but you get the feeling that Tiger must have done something at one time to really get under Ellings' skin, and he taking this opportunity to really pour it on, and kick Tiger when he's down. Obviously, he could have never kicked him while he was up.

By tabloid, you are referring to yourself, right? Get a life already, if it is this hard for you to find a genuine sport's story to report on, choose a new profession.

Why don't celebrities fight back? Simply put out a $100,000 reward for anyone who can dish up dirt on Elling? See how they like it?

It is unfortunate that Tiger has this problem that has blown up his world. People like this writer has been thanking his lucky charms since it happened because no one and I mean no one ever paid attention to a Steve Elling article until this past November. Keep up the Pulitzer Prize winning material. I'm sure you are bucking for gig over at TMZ and I'm sure they are pining for someone with your wealth of golf writing talent.

How about writing something about GOLF!!!

There are tournaments going on...oh yeah Tiger hijacked that today didn't he? How selfish of him to make an apology before just before the tournament is about to start and take the ratings away from the current tour players.

Woods speech falls on deaf tabloid ears

I am not the smartst person or a person that thinks he is always right, but when I read these posts that shine Steve Elling in a positive light........I think of one word..........jealousy!!!!!!!!!!!  It is o.k. to hate Tiger  Woods for what he did.......not a problem.  Don't let the fact you or your favorite golfers can't play as good as him come into the equation.  Don't let the fact that you have less money, less fame, or less opportunities to sleep with hot women come into the equation.  This journalist crossed a line.....the line is a line of "class".  He showed on several occasions he was upset he did not get his way, and he posted a senseless post on CBSSPORTS.  He disgusts me.......and he should be fired........period.  I don't have National Enquirer as a part of my favorites list.......hope to keep it that way.
