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.

Woods speech falls on deaf tabloid ears

I'm glad to see others taking this guy to task on this blurb.  This is very unprofessional.  He comes off looking like the tabloid journalists he's criticizing. 

As an aside, why did Tiger do this?  Why does he feel he has to apologize to anyone?  I fail to see how his personal life is anyone's business outside his own house.  And I've heard those on ESPN radio rationalize it by saying that he built up this squeaky clean public persona, and now he needs to apologize for that part not being true.  Really?  I don't feel that's the case at all.  For one, I don't view any of his current or prior endorsements as overtly saying "I'm an extremely moral guy".  We just werent' witness to the immoral side.  I suspect there are many just like him on the PGA tour.  I also suspect it's as bad or worse in the NFL,MLB, or NBA.  I am a little cynical, and think this is more about rebuilding his image to bring back or gain sponsors, than it is about appeasing the public, but his sex life is his business.  He really doesn't need to apologize to anyone.

So are you applying for a job as a scum bag tabloid reporter yet? What a douche! Tiger screwed up not his wife or children. They don't deserve there lives to be at risk and they don't deserve there privacy to be stolen from them. You sir, along with your tabloid buddies are the lowest form of life there is on this earth. Even lower than Tiger himself!

Cmon people do you really think the daycare was the best kept secret here?  Its not anyhing new to the media.  I have more of an issue with woods still doing what he has always done.  Demand for things to be his way.  Welcome to reality woods your not getting your way anymore deal with it.  Besides you created the media circus by trying to force feed everyone some BS story about it all.

The nerve of those tabloid reporters...

... camped out on the corner of Main and 4th in the small town of Gotha right near the Dunkin' Donuts, which has these awesome flatbread sandwiches. How they were able to find this location is beyond me."

Nice job Mr. Elling. You forgot the hyperlink to mapquest.

Oh well he brought this on himself I hope he falls off a cliff. Next time Tigger keep it in your damn pants you fool. I hope he crashes and burns it would not hurt my feelings one bit if he never won another tourny again. I laugh at his ingnorance and stupidity he should not have got married if he knew what he was going to do and im pretty sure he did. May God have mercy on your soul you punk.

<h3 class="UIIntentionalStory_Message" style="font-size: 13px; color: #333333; font-weight: normal; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden; padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">tiger's speech was scripted. he was told when to pause, breath, and look into the camera. he was not sorry he did it, he was sorry he got caught. i have never been a tiger fan and really never had a reason, now i have a reason to not be a fan.  i do not wish harm on his kids or his wife, but tiger is now going to be watched even closer once he comes back to the public for good.  i have zero tolerance for him now.  he should have come out as soon as the first story broke and set the story straight.  the longer you go to apologize, the harder it gets and the media is eating it up right now.
