12/9: Tiger’s Troubles…Americans Say, “Butt Out”

As more tawdry details of Tiger Woods’ marital infidelity make their way through the rumor mill, the golf great remains tight-lipped.  Is that the best strategy for Woods?

According to nearly seven in ten residents nationwide, he should deal with the events privately.  25% disagree saying Woods should talk about the situation under public scrutiny.  6% are unsure.

What about all those endorsements Woods has been cashing in on?  Will the public still purchase products promoted by the now tarnished sports figure?  Americans respond overwhelmingly, “Yes.”  91% say Woods’ “transgressions” make no difference when deciding whether or not to buy a product endorsed by the golfer.  8% say recent events will make them less likely to buy such products.

    I agree with Janie. Personal life is just that and couples have had problems with each other since the beginning of time so why publicize this. I do not see it as news and actually do not bother with it at all.

    There is more to life than the Tiger Woods family problems and that is just what it is their problems and for them to deal with them. Every one in the world famous or non famous have a hidden life for one time or another. Life is not easy and everyone should just stay out of their affairs and the news should stop trying to make things worse and let the family work out their problems together. Give them their time and space to try to resolve what has to be done between them and their families….I really feel sorry for his wife and children it is a hard enough for them to try to heal think of the children and the others in the family

    I think they should leave him along he is just a MAN. This happens all the time . I’m not saying it is right but it is what it is. This kind of stuff goes on all the time with men Kobe, Jordan,Clinton, Mayors. If I was his wife I wouldn’t go no where I would sue every last one of those ***** because they all knew he was married with children
