I am watching the news now and they are counting down the Tiger Woods debacle. Again he had an affair who cares.. The promise he made to remain faithful was with his wife that's all he should answer to... Again who cares . They are treating him like a world leader or the President.Why are not the press focused on Washington for not getting work done like passing my unemployment benefits. Again Tiger Woods is a billionaire..
The thing is, while you and I may not care, there are a shitload of fans of Tiger Woods who do care, as well as a shitload of people who hate him that love reading about Tiger's fuckups. And then there is the general public that just likes anything that's even remotely "controversial" when it comes to celebrities.
People love seeing famous people fall. It sells a shitload of magazines.
It gets people's attention, which is how the media makes its' money. It works.
I'm not too into it either, but don't get wound up about these bullshit stories. It's just a fact of life, young man.
Good luck in finding a job. A few of my friends are unemployed at the moment and it's not a fun place to be.
I couldn't stop laughing when I saw Tiger on a podium like he was Obama, or more fittingly, señor Clinton himself.
The incident does contain all of the factors that make up a juicy controversy though: filthy rich celebrity and role model + sex + domestic breakdown.
The general public seems to care, a lot, about what happens to Tiger in private.
yes, who does care about that stuff. i am glad for him, for doing a dream that most guys want. to sleep with a lot of girls. he just did his apology speech and a lot of channels were covering them. i was just like wow really, people really want to hear his speech. i do not think he owns an apology except for his family and girls that he slept with.
I totally agree. As mentioned before the UK has recently seen the 'John Terry' scandal hit the press as they found out he had an affair. The press have never shut the hell up about him for over a week now and the thing is nobody cares about his personal life and just want to watch him to play football as that is his job. I personally couldn't care that he has had an affair because face it plenty of people all over the UK and for that fact the World have had an affair and I doubt that they have all been put 'under pressure' to leave their job. I just wish that the media would focus on real news and stop stalking so called celebrities and scrutinizing their boring personal lives for some sort of agonizingly insignificant mistake that really does not concern anyone apart from them and the respective people involved.
On a final note I saw this recently on the TV about the John Terry story and the stupidity of the media and think is is hilarious and so true at the same time! (0:00 to 8:02)
It's really not about whether we care or not. Personally i believe that what he did was wrong and that he's an idiot for cheating on is wife, but to be honest i don't know him so why should i give a shit? I don't , but what is more important is how this affects his sponsers, his image as a role model and an athlete, and the effect it's going to have on the golf world. It's a fact that when Tiger Woods played on TV viewing numbers increased, i think by as much as like twenty percent or something. After what he has done the sport of golf, and the money that is brought in thru viewership and tour attendance will lessen, thus affecting the buisiness side of golf. You've got to remember that a sport is a business, just like a school is, or religion is, or a hospital is. Bad image means bad business and that's what is more important here. Especially as golf is going to be a sport in the next olympics (i think).

But yeah, I don't even know what the whole Tiger Woods fiasco was about.
Apparently, at least 253 people. His name gets clicks and views just to see if he's started up some new controversy or whatnot. People love having something to commonly feel disgusted about as it unites people, albeit with negative emotions. Hey, gotta vent about something.
" Wow. An affair. Nobody cares about this and people act like these are uncommon from celebrities. Plus Tiger Woods is a robot. Have you hear him talk. He is the most stoic person ever. "It's not so much that he had an affair as the sheer number of women he allegedly had affairs with. A double-digit number.
Yeah I don't get why people care but whatever, he'll weather the storm and before you know it everything will go back to the way it was.
Although I would love for a celebrity/athlete to hold a news conference and say fuck it. But that will never happen unfortunately.
It's just a chance for some white people in the media to bash what was percieved as an upstanding black man.
I'm so fucking sick of it, it's like he raped a puppy or something. They have him all up on a podium apologising and looking shamefaced infront of the world, its fucking disgusting.
And to all of you being "women care" etc, fuck that. It's none of their gossipy -nothing better to do in their droll life - business', none of this concerns anyone except those involved.

Possibly multiple times. He's not what you'd call fan-friendly.
Plus BB is an all around asshole. I just want like Michael Phelps to say, "yeah I smoke weed, so what? I got 8 gold medals bitches."
Its different than BB or MJ saying that type of stuff because we expect it from them.
