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."

I fell the exact opposite from Tiger fan, I no longer use Gilette, and will purchase nothing associated with the name Tiger Woods. And I feel alot of America feels the same way, that's why he keeps getting dumped by his sponsers.

I thinks it's bullcrap that these companies are dropping him, yes the man is clearly a pig for what he did, but these companies are taking money away from his kids !!!!!!!!

"Anita," what utter BS. No one is taking money away from Tiger's kids. He has enough money to last the rest of their lives. Losing sponsors isn't going to hurt him or them. If any money is lost, it's TIGER'S fault. Perhaps he should advertise for CONDOMS --- which he didn't wear --- which has put his wife at risk for HIV/AIDS. What a sorry excuse for a husband and father.

Kim hit the nail on the head! Tiger is a multi millionaire, his kids will be fine. Most people think Tiger is a pig. And now his poor wife will have to worry for the next 10 years and worry if she will get HIV. Having unprotected sex with porn stars is reckless behavior and Tiger didn't seem to care.

Did anyone notice how bald Tiger is going while he was at his press conference. I think Rogaine would be a perfect sponser for him. That is if they wouldn't mind someone of Tiger's low character representing their company.

Tiger Woods is not the only person to have an affair. People thought he was happily married. It was a facade. There is a certain wrestler who claims to be happily married doing the same thing. Tiger just happened to get busted.

Why would Tiger be concerned about this, since VIP sex lounges typically don't serve Gatorade. Nike has shown that it has no morals or conscience and is there to support Tiger Woods regardless of his behavior. Tiger won't feel the pain for a while yet.

Nope, that's not true! They did a national poll and his fan based was still the same and more people voted for him to represent USA golf if it was in the summer Olympics. Also, EA Sports did their own research and monitored their sales in regards to Tiger and concluded that NO SALES WERE DROPPED AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE WAITING FOR THE TIGER GAME TO COME OUT IN THE SUMMER! So yeah, Tiger is still doing fine! These endorsers are using this as an excuse to drop him because they can't afford him anymore, that's all! He'll get new ones once he's back on the golf course...no problem for him!!!

Stupididy at its best    

These CEO's who are dropping Tiger are just a bunch of hypocrites. How many of them have extramaritals affairs ? I bet many of them.
Stop this stupid campaign against Tiger. This is insane. He didn't kill or rape. He had affairs and this is a private matter.
I have a feeling that Mr Woods will be back better than ever and all these stupid sponsors who dropped him will be knocking on his door.
He doesn't need all this money after all. If I were him I will cut myself any contact with all these sponsors.
As far as Elin is concerned. Somebody is saying she was a maid. Hey stupid moron taking care of children is the most underpaying job in the world. Your comment is one of the most stupid I have ever read. Typical macho. I hope she'll stick with him. I guess there will be so many heartbroken people.

Tiger's not the first famous man in history to have affairs on his wife and he won't be the last. People need to leave him alone now. How many times does one man have to pay for his sins?


Elin Woods would be changing baby diapers regardless, but she made out quite well. She was a nanny and unknown B-rated swimsuit model before Tiger married her. People are being extra harsh on Tiger because his wife is a pretty blonde white European woman and his mistresses were slutty American white women throwing themselves at a successful "black-asian" man.


Gatorade's competitors will snap Tiger up as soon as he wins another tournament. The white girls will still throw themselves at him and God help us, the earth will continue to spin on it's axis.

Any guy who would have unprotected sex with a porn star and then sleep with his wife like Tiger did is one cold human being. Elin didn't cheat on anyone but has now been exposed to every skank that Tiger banged. I pray her health isn't compromised because of his selfish behavior. There are some nasty STD's out there besides HIV.
