Gatorade -- The Tiger Woods Well Has Run Dry

12/8/2009 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gatorade -- The Tiger Woods Gatorade is shutting down production of their special brand of Tiger Woods' brew this month -- but the drink giant tells TMZ it has "absolutely no connection" to Tiger's current predicament.

Gatorade says Tiger Woods Focus Gatorade will conveniently be discontinued as of December 26, saying "We made the decision several months ago ... our relationship with Tiger continues.''

Chalk it up to coincidence ... or not.

They are not going to shut down production over night. It obviously was already decide before this happened. This whole thing will be forgotten about when the next big story hits.

He cheated on his wife, big woop. Brandi and other celebs have killed people and everyone has already forgot and moved on.

Just because their are blog junkies that talk about it none stop doesn't mean the majority of people care.

One word - Good! I hope they all pull the rug out from under him. Everyone makes mistakes but clearly he was way out of line and totally out of control. Double digit mistresses, unprotected sex, not to mention risking his wife and kids health too, Tiger Woods is obviosuly a very sick person and he needs to step back, repent, and most importantly - get help. Like many others he thought he was bigger than life, maybe he needs to hit rock bottom to see what really matters... I hope for his sake his wife hangs in there. What an absolute mess.

Predictably you'll start seeing a few sponsors begin to drop off. In light of recent events how can they not? They'll claim it has nothing to do with his problems. A beverage like "focus" turns into a farce after all the recent news. I'm not sure how any product or service can use him without convoluting their intended message.

Yes, he cheated on his wife like too many men do. But, Tiger always acted aloof, perfect and like he was too good to be around normal people, to even SPEAK to the fans - unlike most men. When perfect people fall, they fall hard. Tiger deserves EVERY bit of the stuff that's hitting the fan for him now. And the longer he stays away from the media, the longer the stuff will continue to hit the fan.

Sure, it has everything to do with Tiger's current problems. Gatorade's CEO would have the last word. If he / she is pissed off, they would'nt want their company's name to go down with him.It's very easy to discontinue a brand. Gatorade will stop using his image and affilliation on it's bottle. Any remaining stock will be sold off.They will take a wait and see policy, before letting Tiger endorse their brand, again. In the meantime, it will be business as usual.
