I am so glad the 'Tiger Woods Accident' is all over. There are so many important things that we Americans should be concerned about today. Such as unemployment, medical care, the wars we are fighting, etc. It is typical for Americans to feel that they have a right to know everyone's personal business, especially if of a 'star/pro' status, but, would however, do anything and everything within their realm to protect their personal affairs. We need to mind our own business and focus on what is really important!!

So some waitress's claim to fame is that she had an affair with Tiger?
That makes her a dumbass whore, and she's still just a waitress.

Harvey Levin and TMZ are irresponsible. They should be shut down.

They sensationalize with a bunch of hokus pokus bullsh**. I thought Levin was a lawyer. How many times has he flunked the bar. He is not very bright when it comes to the law.

Got anymore families you want to ruin, Harvey? You and your dorks!

A big fancy press conference for... a parking ticket. The electricity to power the news cameras alone probably cost the state ten times the price of that ticket. Way to conserve resources in these tough times troops...

Come on. You're all missing what really happened. He cheated, got caught, wife pissed off scratched him up. His ego could let his marred up face hit the public (and he is very smart), so he quickly came up with an 'accident' in his neighborhood, and wa lah, he has a reason for scratched up face and not to be seen in public until the Alovera repairs his cracks. To bad nobody could take a pic under the wife's nails. Cat Scratch Fever.

This FL judge kept a cool head and refused to play into the media circus.

Be exceedingly glad !

Thank God that there are still enough decent people left in this country who refuse to bend the Constitution.
It renews my faith in the US justice system.

There was not enough evidence for a warrant. Case closed.

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE    

WHAT IF TIGER HAD ACCIDENTALLY RAN YOU OVER WHILE YOU WERE WALKING BY THAT NIGHT? OR YOUR DAUGHTER OR SON, YOUR MOM WHO YOU LOVE AND WOULD DO ANY THING FOR?

JUST THINK FOR A MOMENT?

NO ONE HERE WILL HELP YOU. NO ONE FROM THE FHP WILL HELP YOU
NO OTHER ENTITY WILL HELP YOU. YOU WOULD BE SCREWED AND ROBBED OF JUSTICE WHICH MANY CORRUPTED OFFICIALS SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THE MEANING OF. JUSTICE IS REPLACED WITH MONEY/PAYMENTS OR FAVORS.

ARE YOU CORRUPTED AND HOW MUCH ARE YOU CORRUPTED? YES YOU.

FOR THE RECORD WHEN A CELEBRITY ACCIDENTALLY OR MALICIOUSLY KILLS ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS OR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY WHILE DRUNK OR ON PRESCRIPTION MEDS OR IN A RAGE ABOUT CHEATING THEY WILL GET OFF THE SAME WAY TIGER JUST DID.

COUNT ON IT.

FAIR? NO? THEN WHY ARE YOU NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT CHANGING THE LAWS OR THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CORRUPTED IN YOUR STATE?

SO WHO IS READY TO GIVE UP A LOVED ONE TO A CELEBRITY FOR NOTHING?

OH WHAT HAVE YOU BECOME?

Your reporting on this story was a joke. Your un-named sources were a joke. I hope Woods sues your corporate asses off.

As the saying goes, behind every great fortune is a great crime. Following his car "accident," Woods's agent says it's unclear whether he will attend his foundation's Chevron World Challenge Golf Tournament. In 2008 Chevron entered a five-year relationship with Tiger Woods's foundation under the guise of philanthropy. But if Woods had a shred of social conscience, this partnership never would have existed. Lawsuits have been issued against Chevron for dumping toxic waste all over the planet. Alaska, Canada, Brazil, Angola and California have all accused Chevron of dumping. Even worse, Chevron has a partnership with Burma's ruling military junta on the country's Yadana gas pipeline project, the single greatest source of revenue for the military, estimated at nearly $5 billion since 2000.

Ka Hsaw Wa, co-founder and executive director of EarthRights International, wrote in an open letter to Woods, "I myself have spoken to victims of forced labor, r-a-p-e, and torture on Chevron's pipeline--if you heard what they said to me, you too would understand how their tragic stories stand in stark contrast to Chevron's rhetoric about helping communities." Chevron is underwriting a dictatorship, but Tiger Woods apparently sees them as upstanding corporate partners.

Then there is Dubai, site of the first Tiger Woods-designed golf course. Located at the southern coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai has been a symbol of economic excess and, most recently, economic collapse. It has been called an "adult Disneyland"--complete with indoor ski resorts and unspeakable human rights violations. As Johann Hari wrote in the Independent, it is a city that has been built over the past thirty years by slave labor. Paid foreign laborers work in more than 100-degree heat for less than $3 a day. Dubai also has a reputation as ground zero of the global sex trade. The project cost $100 million, and Woods said nary a word about his benefactor's practices. This is business as usual for Woods who would sooner swallow a five-iron than take anything resembling a political stand.

Now that Woods appears to have been involved in a domestic dispute, the media are wondering if there is "another Tiger." They are desperate to pillory the man for his personal problems. It would be more appropriate if they took this opportunity to scrutinize him for the right reasons. Woods has every right to keep his personal problems personal. But when he makes deals that benefit dictatorships and unaccountable corporations, all in the name of his billion-dollar brand, he deserves no privacy.

voice of reason    

Anyone who actually believes that nothing is going is just plain oblivious to the world. Will it come out...eventually, as it seems someone with proof of an affair is coming out... Tiger has every man's spank fantasy wife and yet he's dipping the tiger meat into different cages... I guess he's not as perfect as he wants you to believe he is....
I wonder if Elin will be taking golf lessons now that it's apparent she can't hit the FRONT window while he's pulling away....
