Tiger Woods is getting "raw" in a never-before-seen pre-scandal Annie Leibovitz shot.

"In the end it was the age-old clash of image versus reality, the compartmentalization of two different lives that inevitably merge at some certain point, whoever you are. He exhibited the same superhuman confidence off the golf course that he exhibited on it, apparently convinced he would never be caught despite the stupid sloppiness at the end—text messages, voice-mail messages. He deluded himself into thinking he could be something that he wasn’t: untouchable. The greatest feat of his career is that he managed to get away with it for so long in public, the bionic man instead of the human one who hit a fire hydrant."

And as long as we're on the topic, FOX News' Brit Hume says that for Woods to recover from all this he needs to switch from Buddhism to Christianity, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Correction: the greatest golfer is Jack Nicklaus and by all accounts, a far better person. Tiger is a lost soul who needs therapy. Either he is trying to still please his father and have all these women "like him", I bet for his looks and personality. lol or He has a huge ego and needs to satisfy himself at every turn.

    He is a participant of one of the most boring sports on Earth. I remember when Oprah was jumping up and down saying "yes - the world needs Tiger Woods" like he was the next God or something. Pathetic.

  3. Tigers Woods is not a sex addict, he’s a rock star. And like all rock stars, he felt he could get whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. But he should stick to the sex addiction excuse because diseases are much more palatable to the public than bad character.

  4. Jack Nicklaus is a antisemitic puddle of snot. He's CURRENTLY the greatest of all time (second to tiger in terms of value), which will change as tiger woods easily destroys his record. And good. I hate golf, and I hate golfers...especially the asshole racist antisemites who dominated the sport and profession for most of its history...and continue to.

  5. I think that this is discusting.

    Not only at what he did, as that should be between him, his wife, and their lawyers.

    But, the media treatment is way overhyped.

    Monogamy is a an ideal that rarely works; its very much human nature to not be loyal to one partner only.

    All that said, I love this picture of him. With his recent scandals, it makes him look more human, and not the sterilised image that we had of him with his sponsors.

    The male animal is not one that is easy to tame.

    Me? I've never been 100% loyal in all my relationships, sometimes. But, I'm not a billionaire sportsboy.

    I wish Tiger all the best in his recovery. I also wish the media the best on moving on to other things.

  6. tiger is getting hoisted by his own petard. elin has a "tiger by the tail, it's plain to see." david's fruitless arguments not withstanding, there is something pathological about a man who immediately starts cheating on his wife. for gawd's sake, his marriage was not even 5 yrs young with 2 children, and he's fucking cunt number 14? whatever happened to the 7 yr itch? what ever happened to constraint? yet, common opinion is that gay men are promiscuous. what about wilt chamberlain who claimed to have fucked 10,000 women? should we be surprised? no. should we be complaining? yes.

    tiger woods did not only cheat on his wife once, he fucked upwards of 12 cunts while his wife was pregnant with his children. he built his reputation on a squeaky clean image, and he failed miserably. why should gay men excuse this behaviour while straight men get off Scott free? wtf is wrong with you gay men?

  7. Nic,

    Get real. Tiger's behavior is between him and his wife. How does Woods sex life affect you? It doesn't. You're just as bad as the straight people against whom you're railing.

    Sure the guy is a jerk for cheating on his wife, but how is that any of your concern? Did you even care about Woods before this phony scandal?

    Sorry, this moral outrage of yours is pathetic. You're worried about gay men being admonished for promiscuity but you are willing to use Woods as whipping boy for his.

    The media are just using Woods' story to make a buck. Charlie Sheen has a long history of violence, both emotional and physical, against the women in his life. he just allegedly held a knife to his wife's throat, but he gets a free pass in the media. Please.


    Where did you get your Ph.D in psychology? The same place as Charlie Brown's friend Lucy? Good grief.

    The bottom line is that Woods' wife will either stay with him or leave him.
