Tiger Woods Loses Another Endorsement

12/13/2009 5:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger WoodsTiger Woods has been dropped as a spokesman by Accenture, a global management services company that featured Woods very prominently in its ads.

The company released a statement that reads in part: "Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, after careful consideration and analysis, the company has determined that he is no longer the right representative for its advertising. Accenture said that it wishes only the best for Tiger Woods and his family."

Gillette announced earlier this weekend they were phasing Woods out of its ad campaigns. Nike, on the other hand, is standing by their multimillion-dollar man.

If Nike didn't give Tiger $$$$$$$$$$$$$ maybe they could pay the slave labor that makes their shoes more than 30 cents an hour.

Has anyone been updated on the time the group was planning on doing the burning of the Nike products on YouTube?

Anyone who wants to do that will probably get some national news coverage. The more bon fires the more negative publicity for Nike.

Maybe there could be one every day organized until they stop sponsoring Tiger Woods. People have actually gotten big corporate attention when they do things in protest on YouTube. I saw it with I think it was Apple computer. They really addressed the problem once that happened. Make Nike weep.

THE Golfer    

Does anyone honestly believe that if Tiger stays out of the game for 6 or 8 months, or possibly longer, that his sponsors will stick with him? How could Nike or EA Sports, who have a Tiger Woods golf game coming out in a few months time, successfully market a product associated with his name? The longer Tiger stays away, the less cachet his name will carry. It will soon get to the point where no one will care if he plays Nike golf equipment or has his own video game. This is a unique occurrence in the history of professional golf and thus there are uncertainties as to what may occur. One fact is undeniable. There are no positives from what has transpired. Tiger loses, the Tour loses and the fans have lost big time. While Tiger can quite happily survive on his vast fortune, the prospects of professional golf are much less certain. Having hitched their horse to Tiger's star and literally built the Tour around him, professional golf now finds itself in deep doo-doo. Let's hope that a rejuvenated Tiger resurfaces in time to bring stability and watch-ability back to the game.

To those that say the tour cannot survive without Tiger have not been watching the game for 40 years. There will be other golf stars some in the making right now. Every time sports fans say there will never be another great sports star in any game......come to find out there always is.

Tiger was interesting because he was a black man (although he does not want that association) who became a star in what was up until he played a white man's game. There were a few blacks that played golf on the tour and that was it. There will be other greats. Tiger may come back and probably will after all Jack won the Masters at 46 and George Foreman at 40 became World Champion again.....so Tiger may not be gone forever........however the charisma is gone forever.

The ratings and attendance may suffer initially; however, once the media and PR machines start gearing up again, there will me new stories and heros. That is the nature of any sport.

My thoughts are with his wife who sacrificed so much for nothing. She has two children and no family. She is the victim here.

Tiger is only acting the way the majority of men would act, that is; if men truly had the chance to be surrounded by beautiful women telling them that they are wonderful AND willing to have passionate sex with them. Yeah, most men would go for it.

Wow, this has been the most honest direct gutsy statement so far from any company that has dropped him. Good for them. Nike is really looking bad/pathetic.

The only NIKE shirts for sale soon will have a pic of Tiger with a red circle and a slash through it. Nothing else will sell.

Anderson Consulting was the most prestigious accounting firm Worldwide until they did themselves in with Enron. Accenture spun off from Anderson Consulting almost 8 years ago when the government required audit be seperate from IT/Computer Accounting Software consulting. Accenture primarily implements ERP / Accounting systems in Fortune 1000 companies.
No one ever thought it possible for Anderson Consulting to go out of business, that is, until the Enron corruption.
Since integrity and the morals and ethics in your business life directly reflect who you are in your personal life, it was a good move that Accenture bowed out from the association with Tiger.
