CBS Golf Announcer: I'll Get Fired If I Talk Tiger

12/15/2009 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods' name is golf announcer poison -- at least according to one CBS sportscaster who fears losing his job if he talks about golf's biggest story on the air.

CBS Golf Announcer

Ian Baker-Finch -- former PGA golfer-turned-announcer -- told the Sydney Morning Herald yesterday, "Mate, if I say one word about Tiger, I will get fired."

TMZ called CBS for comment -- but so far, they're not talkin' either.

I've just retained Gloria Allred too... I'm not a whore, but I want my own show, photo spread in a trashy magazine, and a clothing line.

oh yeah    

Awww elin is so beautiful. The most beautiful wife that money can buy. To all the white people commenting on elin’s beauty, it obviously wasn’t enough to keep her husband from straying. She should learn how to satisfy her husband in bed. And another thing she will be as wrinkled as a prune very soon. I am tired of seeing these good looking white men married to women who look old enough to be their mother. They look like Barbie dolls when they are young but by the time they hit forty the beauty is gone.

I have heard this is common among sports announcers right now..but also much of sports media are keeping mum on this topic because even before the scandal...access to Tiger was so limited, reporters never wanted to lose their limited acceess, so they kept quiet...even after all these years of knowing about Tiger behind the scenes.

Now you have reporters who dont' want to talk..because when Tiger comes back...he will be even MORE limited and they don't want to kill the only opportunity they might have to talk with him..maybe 2010.

Oh boohoo…. poor elin. Elin is a very smart woman. Black women must learn from these white women. Love with your head not your heart. Elin worked as a nanny at a place where she was destined to be introduced to wealthy golfers. She realized that none of the white ones were going to marry her as quickly as poor tiger so she settled for him. She couldn’t perform certain acts in bed with a man she was not in love with so he found other women to do the job

oprah    

Elin seemed happy the other day while pumping gas...I don't think all these have affected her much as she also did not love Tiger. Her outburst on Thanksgiving was probably out of spite jealosy to Tiger being the "wife" in all

we should all forget about all these low lives, gold digging, nymphos and Hos, and concentrate in our own lives and this freaking government that is ruining us all
