Gatorade to Tiger Woods: See Ya Later, Alligator

2/26/2010 7:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gatorade is no longer thirsty for Tiger Woods -- the drink giant has officially cut off their endorsement deal with the golfer.

Gatorade to Tiger Woods: See Ya Later, Alligator

A rep for Gatorade told CNBC, "I can confirm that we no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship."

The rep added, "However, our partnership with the Tiger Woods Foundation will continue. We wish Tiger all the best."

Gatorade is the third company to give Tiger the boot in the wake of his sex scandal -- Woods was already dropped by Gillette and Accenture.

UPDATE: Tiger's agent released the following statement: "We have been in discussions with Gatorade, and while we are disappointed they have decided to not continue with Tiger in their marketing plans, we appreciate their continued involvement with Tiger through his foundation."

Woods is being treated unfairly?! LOL! I wonder if Elin feels that way? Woods signed an agreement, a contract, not just with his wife, but with his sponsors. It's called a 'morals clause.' That's why these companies can continue to drop him, because they don't want Tiger's lying face to be the face representing their product. It's no mystery folks why he is being dropped right and left by sponsors to the tune of millions and millions of dollars. There are other companies we don't even hear about who would have wanted to endorse Tiger before this mess but are no longer interested in him. I work at one of those corporations. Why would ANYONE want to endorse this liar? And for those of you trying to make this a racial issue, Tiger is as white as OJ. So this isn't about the black man being treated unfairly. Don't reach for your race cards.

Give the guy a break... remember the old saying " People Who Live in Glass Houses "

I also believe that his sponsors are .... to drop him. He's sick and he has gone for treatment... maybe he should sue for discrimination. I don't think it's legal to fire someone because they are sick.

I NEED REAL PROOF!!!    

Who cares about Gatorade! I don't buy their drinks at all, they taste NASTY! It's a good thing the relationship is over because there are better brands out there for him like Pepsi and Coke! Besides, I'm sure Tiger doesn't care because the ones have dropped him together make 30% of his endorsement revenue. Nike and EA Sports make up the other 70%, so he can easily find others to cover up the 30%. Once he starts playing and winning golf tournaments again, other brands will fight to endorse him! They did a national poll, his fan based was still strong and more would like to have him represent golf if it was in the summer Olympics! Whatever people, most athletes cheat and have survived their own sex scandals! Get on with your own life...

#19 is SOOOOOO right!! I couldn't have said it better myself. Gatorade will be regretting this naive decision and be kicking themselves just like the companies who dropped Kobe. Executive heads will roll.

I NEED REAL PROOF!!!    

Gatorade dropped him, but still supported his foundation...what??? They're dropping him because he's taking a break from golf to work on his issues, that's why! And their reason for continuing to support his foundation goes to show that they still want something to do with him later on once he starts winning tournaments again! Why cut off sponsorship, but keep in touch with the foundation, Gatorade is a bunch of IDIOTS!!! EA sports said that they have been monitoring their sales in relations to Tiger, NO DROP IN SALES AND MORE PEOPLE ARE WAITING FOR THEIR TIGER GAME TO COME OUT IN THE SUMMER!!! Wow, can't wait for it to come out, must be cool. Please he'll get new endorsements in no time once he's back on the golf course!!!

No loyalty. I've got three athletic teen boys and we would go through three cans of powdered Gatorade a week. About a month ago we switched to Powerade Zero. A 100 times better than Gatorade!!!

GARBAGE BAG

A bin bag, garbage bag, trash bag, refuse sack, can liner (American English), swag sack or bin liner (British English) is a disposable bag used to contain rubbish. Such bags are useful to line the insides of waste containers to prevent the insides of the receptacle from becoming coated in waste material. Most bags these days are made out of plastic, and are typically green or black in colour.

Plastic bags are a convenient and sanitary way of handling garbage, and are widely used. Plastic garbage bags are fairly lightweight and are particularly useful for messy or wet rubbish, as is commonly the case with food waste, and are also useful for wrapping up garbage to minimize odour. Plastic bags are often used for lining litter or waste containers or bins. This serves to keep the container sanitary by avoiding container contact with the garbage. After the bag in the container is filled with litter, the bag can be pulled out by its edges, closed, and tied with minimal contact with the waste matter.

Created in 1950, this invention can be attributed to Canadians Harry Wasylyk, Larry Hansen and Frank Plomp. In a recent special on CBC television, the green garbage bag ranked 36th among the top 50 Canadian inventions.

Plastic bags can be incinerated with their contents in appropriate facilities for waste-to-energy conversion. They are stable and benign in sanitary landfills.

Plastic bags for rubbish or litter are sold in a number of sizes at many other stores in packets or rolls of a few tens of bags. Wire twist ties are sometimes supplied for closing the bag once full. In the mid-1990s bin bags with draw strings for closure were introduced. Some bags have handles which may be tied, or holes through which the neck of the bag can be pulled. Most commonly, the rather soft, flexible plastic used to make bin bags is LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) or, for strength, LLDPE (Linear Low Density Polyethylene), HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is sometimes used.
