Woods speech falls on deaf tabloid ears

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.

Woooo.....back way up. At what point did you actually have any respect for this jackass Elling?Hatestevee...you are probably referring to my post...in the haste of my emotion, I used a word "respect" that was probably not entirely accurate.  More like I "tolerated" him before this.  And as far as the "fan" comment, that was relative...I tended to tolerate Elling in comparison to some of the other hacks on this site.

Hope that clears things up for you:)

It doesn't matter, you don't actually think Elling can count do you?

Man, this guy and the entire media are just a bunch of whores! I pray that he does something wrong and can experience what Tiger is going through. I don't believe in what he did but these media people are horrible.

Elling.....you are low-life scum.  I don't care how many people he slept with.  The man admitted he was wrong.  Scum like you with no life are pissed because he would not allow questions.  Scum like you saw an opportunity to pounce, and it was taken away.  You disgust me.  His wife and kids do deserve to be left alone.  If anyone at CBSSPORTS has a clue, they will fire you for being an idiot.  A spoiled brat that did not get his way.  Punks like you got their butts whipped everyday (sound familiar), and now you use your "job" as an opportunity to show it did not happen enough

Oops - that was Elling, not Ellington.  Eh, either way, I don't really care what this schmo's name is.

What a jerk you are Elling. This is far from impartial, ethical writing. What is your apparent "beef" with Tiger? You add an article or two per week that oozes hatred and jealousy towards the man. Now you attack his family, and most notably his children, after it was quite clearly asked that you not include his kids in anything anymore. And yes this is an attack. I bet you couldn't drive to that daycare fast enough after the news conference to try and get your piece of the action.

You are a sick man that is no different than the 8 photographers camped outside the daycare waiting for a picture of children barely old enough to walk. Way to go there big fella, hope this stokes your ego a little bit more and makes you feel like more of a man.

You're a pathetic excuse of a human being that lacks a decency that even most hardened criminals have. YOU DON'T MESS WITH CHILDREN! Must be nice to be perfect Elling. JERK!

I'm sure that if eight paparazzi pansies know where Tiger's kids' daycare is, they all know.

Look on the bright side - we all just found out about where Ellington lives.

Woods speech falls on deaf tabloid ears

I live near Buffalo, and Mike Mularkey was coach of the Bills for two years, during which time the team did not perform well.  He walked away from the final year of his contract, and one of the reasons was his children took a lot of abuse from the others in their school (I believe his kids were preteens at the time, this was a few years ago), regarding their dads lack of ability to win games for the Bills.

MIKE MULARKEY had to quit his job because of abuse his kids took.

Read that carefully.........MIKE MULARKEY!  A FAR cry from Tiger Woods in every aspect.

Bottom line...if you are in the public eye in any way/shape/form, others will find ways to torment you and your family if things do not go their way, whether it be 10-year olds, or paparazzi.

And for what it is worth...guaranteed that Steve Elling wasn't the one to break the location of Woods' children, if photographers are already located there.  But you readers here are such Woods' lemmings, you will find anything to hang your hats onto.

There was golf before Woods, and from what I remember (I am 48), it was pretty damn good.  When I am a senior citizen in a few years, there will be golf then as well, and chances are it will also be pretty damn good.

There was great baseball before Bonds/Griffey/A-Rod/Pujols/etc, there will be after.  There was great basketball before James/Bryant/Wade/Shaq/etc, there will be after.  There was great hockey before Crosby/Miller/Iginla/Ovetchkin/etc, there will be after.  There was great football before Manning/Brady/Tomlinson/Lewis/etc, there will be after.  Trust me on this.
