Red Alert for Tiger Woods Mea Culpa

2/18/2010 11:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The golf course where Tiger Woods is expected to make a statement Friday is putting together a serious battle plan to keep spies, poachers and other no-goodniks away from the event.

TMZ has learned the staff at the TPC Sawgrass golf course in Florida has a 4:30 AM call time on Friday so they can get an early start on transforming the links into the safest place on Earth.

Sources connected to the event tell us the staff has been instructed to move all golf carts from underneath the clubhouse by 5:30 AM to clear a landing pad for Tiger's convoy.

We're told officials believe Tiger will arrive in a fleet of black SUVs sometime before 11 AM when he is scheduled to speak. Tiger's crew will drive underneath the clubhouse presumably so he can move about freely without worrying about interlopers seeing or hearing anything Tiger doesn't want people to see or hear.

We're told local police officers will be on site during the event -- some of the cops will be in plain clothes.

It seems Tiger plans on having complete control of the situation -- as we previously reported, he's not even taking questions.

What is he still hiding? One would think he would want to be seen so it doesn't look like he is still hiding something. Don't trust him!!

NOW THAT WE HAVE ALL OF THESE RELATIONSHIP AND EXPERT POLICE AROUND, I WANT ALL OF YOU TO BE TRUE TO THE MORAL YOU PREACH AND IF YOU HAVE HAD AN AFFAIR- THEN STEP UP NOW AND TELL THE TRUTH. THEN TAKE AN ARMY OF YOU TO EVERY TOPLESS CLUB AND FIND ALL THE MARRIED MEN AND EXPOSE THEM TO THE PUBLIC AND THE RIDICULE. MAKE SURE TO TAKE NOTE OF OF THEIR RACE AND MAKE ANIMAL LIKE COMMENTS. THIS SHOWS YOUR TRU MORALITY ON THE ISSUE. NOT ONE OF YOU, KNOW WHAT GORE OR HAS GONE ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WITH TIGER AND HIS WIFE AND SO THOSE COMMENTS ARE JUST PLAIN OLE BS. IT IS JUST SOMETHING FOR YOU TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE NO EXCITEMENT IN YOUR LIFE.

ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE CONCERNED ABOUT TIGER LYING TO HIS WIFE- SINCE HE HAS COMMITTED NO CRIME, EXCEPT FOR A TRAFFIC TICKET,I WANT TO TO YOUR EQUILAVANCY ON YOUR IDIOT BUSH AND HIS LYING SOLDIERS TO HIS DEATH IN IRAQ???????????????????????

He doesn't owe me an apology. I watch him because he is a great golfer not because of his personal life. For all of you talking about role models for the kids. Parents should be their kids role models. Tiger will be back and for all of you being so negative you just were happy to see his demise. Mad that a black man is the best in a predominately white sport. Get a grip and get over it. Stop judging people.

F**k Tiger. Oh that's original. What I mean is that this MAN is not the president of the United States of America. Why is it that the media is still fawning all over him even after his scandalous behavior. He has been punking the media for so long that they act like they have some sort of victimization syndrome. Tiger Woods should NOT be calling the shots here. No one can ask questions. There will be no video. So what's the big ass deal? I don't care about Tiger or his brand anymore. No one should go to his party tomorrow.

"opinionated" I agree...he does not owe us or the media anything. This is between him and his wife thats it!!! People can choose to watch or not watch him.. NOBODY except for him and his wife know what went on, nor should we care....Hell, she probably knew about his affairs and maybe that is the kind of relationship they have, still none of our business........

Scenario 1

Dysney will make a movie over this and all the sponsors who dropped him will come back beggin' and his wife will be on his side. Only in America!

Scenario 2

His wife will leave him with the kids and he'll turn out the best single father of the year. Dysney will make a movie over this and will make a fortune and so is the Kleenex company. Lots of women will come forward to offer their help ( sexually and motherly). On ly in America!!

This bothers me more than if he had just kept quite. The fact that he timed this to be exactly during another golf event really screams how arrogant he is. He is not sorry. He is sorry he got cuaght!!! And he sure didn't take very much time to become a better human being because he has NO humility. I was rootin for him before but this is the last straw. All he wants is to play golf & make money.

There are other ways to deal with one's problems than cavorting with bimbos and humiliating and embarrasing a whole bunch of people in the process. His freaky behaviour has probably affected more people than he could ever imagine. After everything that's come out about this man-ho and his sordid lifestyle (and probably more that hasn't come out), he's chosen to make his big comeback speech at the 'Players Club' - charming! If his wife needs to get a clue, this would be it.

Seriously    

If Elin shows up I will have no respect for her.
This guy is a control freak. He will continue to do
whatever the hell he wants no matter what he says.
He may be a great golfer, but he's a sad excuse for a man.

I mean Really...people so bent up about Tiger making a controlled statement. If he wasn't a celebrity this whole thing wouldn't have made the back page on even a local newspaper. Yes he had an affair or four which is wrong but sadly a more common situation these days. Again if not for his celebrity status this whole thing would not have been deemed newsworthy.

Paparazzi are scrambling around trying to get a pic of him and when that fails stalk his wife in hope of getting a "million" dollar picture. Now they are crying that the "first" picture was staged and taken by a professional robbing them of their chance at fame and lots of money.

Sports reporters are crying that Tiger is not taking questions after his statement robbing them of the chance to, as one sports reporter said this morning on cable news, "interrogate" him for fame and glory. Upset they did not get their invitation to be part of Tigers re-appearance opportunity. Let alone the Entertainment Reporters who have had pages of spicy questions to ask Tiger to stir the story another notch.

And then there's the Celebrity Lawyers out to make a buck on this whole thing. A stripper walks into the celebrity lawyers office and tells them I have had an affair with a married man. Who is this married man they ask? Joe Plain the stripper responds. What does he do the lawyer asks. Works at a construction company the stripper responds. Oh he owns the company the lawyer asks? No he is just labor for one the stripper answers. I'm sorry we are not taking any new clients right now the lawyer reply's.

Meanwhile Stripper 2 comes into the office. I had an affair with a married man she opens. Who was the married Man the lawyer asks. Tiger Woods the stripper responds. Oh my poor dear, I can't believe how this monster took advantage of you like this. Have some champagne and caviar while I arrange a news conference.

Please celebrity ambulance chaser more like it! Anyway if this was just a normal joe on the street the reporters, paps, lawyers would not be interested. But since its a celebrity sports hero it's the biggest story of the decade.
