Tiger on Thursday: TV or not TV?

Posted on: March 31, 2010 8:41 am
 
Two of the key questions relating to next week's Masters involve how club officials will handle the pairings dilemma and when Tiger Woods will hit his opening Augusta National shot.

That is, which unlucky saps will be paired with Woods in the first two rounds, putting them in the eye of the storm as he concludes a 144-day layoff after enduring one of the biggest public-relations disasters in sports history, and how much will be seen on TV?

Just for the record, below is the complete list of his playing partners at Augusta since he turned pro, courtesy of the Associated Press. Also note the tee times, which are interesting in that the ESPN broadcast window on Thursday is from 4-7:30 p.m. Based on past history, it seems fair to say that in a best-case scenario, only his back nine will be televised live. The latest he has teed off is 1:52 p.m.

If he tees off in the morning wave, before noon, it stands to reason that nary a shot will be seen live on the network since he'll likely be finished by 4 p.m.

The public didn't make him anything. You are a major tool that hasn't got a clue about anything. You deserve nothing from him at all. you are not a pimple on anyones ass. He got paid as you say because the sponsers wanted to use him to better there cause. that's how it works tool. They aren't giving away money for nothing. They think it will pay off for them. They use the people they hire to help themselves tool, that is how it works. He owes you nothing, you are just a hater and a tool that likes to hear himself talk or write in this case. 

Wow.  Websites really need to start getting people to take I.Q tests before they are allowed to post anything. So, let me get this straight "Solid Gold",  he's a tool?

Why doesn't a person who is addicted to alcohol, realize they're an Alcoholic until they get a DUI?  Because like most people with a problem, they either don't know they have one, or think they are in control of it.  Until you are in the same situation where you have an addiction to something, you won't understand.

Really eh.  Yes, that makes all kinds of sense.  Tiger had no idea he had this problem. He is married and has kids, and while he was banging two porno stars in that hotel room, in his head, he thought he was totally normal, and what he was doing was acceptable.  Its not till his wife finds out and beats him with a golf club, that he realizes "hey, maybe Im not living the way I should be?"  hmmmm.

If you are really that naive, you have some serious problems, and you probably forgave the guy as soon as he announced he was addicted to sex.  Good job pal.  You are a smart man.

You are just a jealous hater. You can't hide that fact. People want to see him play. Nothing has changed there. He is the man people want to see play simple as that. If you don't believe that then it is you that is the loser.

We have no choice but to read about it since losers like this guy can't stop writing about it. Don't fall for the line that people still want to hear about the garbage. They want to see him play that is all. Not hear some loser write about how he doesn't like him. Get a life Cub boy.
