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.

You're an idiot.  Go after the kids because Tiger is a cheater?  Stupid.  He brought it on himself, so it's okay to stalk the kids?  Stupid.  Guaranteed you are one of those people that just wants to see stars get shot down to size.  Your size.  Makes you feel better because he accomplished more in a month than you have in your life.

"And, why wouldn't Cheetah's speach fall on deaf ears?  He's not sorry he cheated - he's sorry he got caught. You can't be sorry you cheated when you did it with 15+ skanks.  Ridiculous."

First intelligent comment on this yet. If the man was really sorry he wouldn't have done it in the first place. The rehab and the staged, no questions apology are all part of a well-planned effort to appear to be sorry so the media will move on to other things. Guess what Tiger, it's not going to happen. Most in the media think you are full of it and they are going to spend every waking moment over the next year or two trying to catch you humping another skank from a po-rn film or the local Perkins cafeteria so they can put it on the front page of their tabloid.

If and only if he stays clean and avoids any sexcapades with random women will he finally be left alone by the media because the story will no longer be interesting to people because American star worshippers have a short attention span and will move on to the next celebrity gone bad story.

What gets me is why he bothered to get married. I guess he wanted to have eat pie and eat it too. Given his lifestyle (all the traveling) and his constant need for snatch, wouldn't it have made more sense for him to not get married until much later in life so he could have done all of the running around without any fallout?

I guess it's just arrogance that makes a person do something they have no business doing (getting married and having kids in Tiger's case). I think he truly believed he was "in control" and that nothing like this could ever happen to him. Surprise, Tiger! You were wrong! For your arrogance / stupidity, you wiin a 3 Wood to the head, a 100 million dollar divorce, and unending media scrutiny for the next two years. Enjoy!

Would not be difficult to find his child's daycare, so Steve Eling may have been wrong, but I bet they knew already.  That is the price one pays for being such a well know athlete.  The sad part is his family and especially his children have no privacy.

Steve, it really seems like you have a personal vendetta against Tiger.  Care to elaborate? Your last few articles on him are not just critical (which would be acceptable, if not justified) , they are malicious and seething.  Including this disclosure that is a breech of any so-called journalistic integrity.  The personal attacks you are making on what Tiger apparently 'owes' you are misguided and childish. Tiger owes you nothing.  You're like a pre-schooler who just got stuffed in a locker, ...again.  Stop glorifying sports stars, and start looking up to someone who is actually in your life or profession.  I thought you were supposed to have a little bit of maturity and objectivity in your profession, but I guess they'll let anyone write this crap.  Every other columnist on this topic has displayed at least a morsel of respect and maturity on this story, except for you.  You seem to relish slinging the dirt around.  Maybe try the National Enquirer?

Easy to see who the arrogant preeck is here and it ain't Tiger.

Why does this slug who poses as a journalist try to differentiate "tabloid" journalism from his intentional stating of the location of Tiger's children and the arrogant snide "message ignored" at the end of his pathetic piece of garbage.

YOU are tabloid, moron.

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

1. pricy is misspelled doofus
2. Does your article make you "celebrity media"?
3. Does this mean you live in a "pricey neighborhood" (then CBS obviously pays you way too much).
4. Whoa....photos of Elin picking up her children - now that is a real barburner of a story. Then again moms and dads do that every day.

Good Job!  Plaster Tiger all you want; Criticize his wife if you must, but leave the kids alone. They are barely old enough to walk. How you cash a paycheck to write this jibberish is beyond me.
