Looks like filet mignon gets older a little sooner than expected.

The title of this thread really needs to be changed. Tiger isn't and never was in serious condition. Unless you guys were referring to his mental condition.

If it's not about golf, Tiger Woods owes us no explanation. This is not in the Bill of Rights, but I think all Americans have a right to screw up their own marriages. I don't know if Tiger Woods has exercised that right or not. We might never know. It is, frankly, not our business.

Quoted from ******.

Tiger doesn't need to explain, except maybe to the legal system, what went on and why.

Having said that Tiger is also about image and endorsements. The sooner he answers questions the less damage he will do to both. Elin may have attacked him, Tiger may have had an affair. Tiger suing or not suing the tabloid that may have precipitated the attack / crash will tell me whether there was an affair or not.

I agree with this.

I'll cite Pierre Trudeau said the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.

I imagine this includes a domestic dispute in the driveway.

Unless it crosses the line to criminal charges which this could. But unlikely.

Tiger could also be pursued for compensation of damages to the fire hydrant and tree of course.

I agree completely. Unfortunately, this will get dragged out for days and maybe weeks and Tiger's name will be dragged through the mud.

I find it surprising that some in this thread question the mans character.

I have met the man before and he is as down to earth and genuine as you can get. My goodness gracious. Can't believe some of the things I've read. The world would be a better place with more people like Tiger.

That's odd, because I met Chris Benoit and thought that he was a helluva nice guy years before he killed his wife, son, and himself.

Agreed...I went to the same High School (O'Leary), and even though he was a couple of grades ahead, he wouldn't think twice about giving you the time of day and a friendly acknowledgement

I think it's safe to say that was a one in a million situation. I doubt Tiger is going to go crazy and do something as ridiculous as Benoit.

I'm willing to guess that the average pro golfer is more mentally stable than the average pro wrestler.

It was a real surprise to me because he seemed like a genuinely nice guy and I mean a really nice guy. Yet his legacy in life will be remembered by his last few days on the planet.

Many Americans joke about hockey and put it in the same league as ringette, lacrosse and tiddlywinks. That's the unfortunate reality of it.

Until the league builds up its credibility and the sport is more appealing to a wider audience of course jokes are going to be made about it.

Why would anybody get ******** about it?

Might as well get the tinfoil hat out.

Not everybody is a Benoit and you're reaching for the stars if you're trying to make any sort of comparison between the two.

Obviously you despise the man and wouldn't hesitate to take a golf club to his head should you see him on the street but don't compare him to a steroid junky who probably didn't know left from right half of the time.

Did I ever say that he'd do something like this? Hell no, just that the guy said that he met Tiger and that he was a nice guy, it reminded me of my meeting with Benoit, he was a nice guy and I was beyond shocked when I heard that he took his families life and then his own. Just saying that a chance meeting doesn't exactly give you a defining look into someone's soul.

I don't like Tiger, but Benoit was coherent and carried on an intelligent conversation with me, so steroids or not, they didn't affect the way that he spoke to me that day.
