Elin Nordegren -- From Tiger to Puma?

12/16/2009 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

While Tiger Woods is losing sponsors left and right, TMZ has learned his wife, Elin Nordegren, is "very close" to signing a deal of her own ... and the company happens to be Nike's archenemy -- Puma.

An official from Puma -- the athletic wear company -- has confirmed they are in "internal discussions" to sign Elin as a spokesperson for a new Swedish-inspired clothing line called Tretorn.

The rep tells us Puma is after Elin because they feel she's "a good brand fit."

We could not reach Elin for comment.

This post a few days ago sums up a woman's point of view. Best post I have read:
I am so happy for women everytime I see an endorsement lost for this guy. Everything he did was misogynistic to women on every level. There was not one woman of any calliber that he treated with any respect or dignity, including his mother. He has shamed his mother as well by his actions toward women.

What makes him different than someone like the any of our past presidents is that all his whores came out in a grand parade and outted him. This shows you that whores actually hate being whores and this is the pay back they will give men for what they do to them. Most hookers probably have no respect for men after a short time working. While men think they are powerful paying women to sell themselves out, men are actually very weak that they would have to actually pay women and cannot just attract us with whatever natural traits they have. Most of these hookers he paid are so deeply effected by the misogyny of prostition that they only seek to make more income off of men by promoting themselves more. Johns cant trust hookers and that is because they reflect back the hate men heap on them.

What I want for my Holy Day, December 25 is for Tiger Woods to lose every single endorsement he has. In honor of the Virgin Mary on her most blessed day, I would love to see women around the world get their respect by dropping this MISOGYNIST and putting the Mother and Child in the very highest of esteem. Elin is in the Madonna role in the Woods family and women around the world identify with this sacred and delicate time in all womens lives. As his wife and mother of his children, she blessed him in the most profound way a women can bless a man. She also did this without regard to his race and simply gave all her gifts to him in a sacred ceremony we call marriage. He on the other hand, had to get a prenuptial agreement to protect himself financially, but Elin gave ALL to him. What she gave to him in marriage and in the birth and care of his two children has no monetary price. It is a treasure beyond measure. There is no monetary settlement that could come close to paying for all the disgrace and humiliation and suffering he put the sacred mother of his children under. This was the most public humiliation of a young mother and children I have ever heard of in history. If there has ever been a young mother more publically humilated in the world I would be very interested in knowing who that is? Because of the times we live in with our media and the use of the internet I would say no women in her sacred time of mothering could have been humilated more internationally than Elin Woods simply because of the amount of exposure that is possible now.

My love and support and my deepest empathy goes out to her and her children. I will be thinking of Elin, Sam and Charlie on Christmas and may all the love of the world come into their hearts on this day.

Puma was always NIKE's competitor.

Elin was sent to get NIKE's money.

This relationship was strickly about business.

Elin promised to return 200 million of Nike's money to PUMA.

They can take all their "stuff" from Tiger but what they can never take is his God given ability to play Golf! There will never be another Tiger Woods so I hope the only Tiger Woods comes back soon!

That's good thinking by Puma, if they could sign Elin. Because that could be counter marketing against Nike, Tigers core sponsor. So even if the product Elin is promoting doesn't fit the male programing that Tiger's Nike ads would normally air, like say a PGA tournament, just throw one or two of her ads would remind people what a sleezebag Tiger is and thus weaken Tiger with some demo.

-------------------------------------------------

First of all, no one put a gun to their head and told them to be whores. Just sticking up for these women, who would rather earn a living laying on their back and destroying marriages is sickening. I don't pity the whores in Tiger's life, several of whom came from good families and were likely the dirtbag black sheep of the family. I pity the single mothers out there busting their tails working three jobs to support their children, or the stressed out female students, juggling work and school to pay their own way through college (even if it sometimes means taking less than desirable jobs), or any woman trying to better herself or make an honest living. Sorry, but it will be a cold day in hell before people pity lazy women who think the answer to all their dreams is to open their legs for a rich guy and in return, get paid to stay quiet. It especially disgusts me that they entered into an agreement to stay quiet, yet ultimately proved that they are too trashy to even uphold their end of a bargain. A whore is bad enough, but a dishonest whore? And we should pity these "ladies" (using the term VERY loosely)??? Call me a mysogynist all you want, but right is right and wrong is wrong. These busted nasty chicks are indicative of everything wrong with America and I hope they go down in flames when their 15 minutes of fame is up.
