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."

Thank God there is a company with some common sense! Gatorade is a huge advertiser and they are smart to let this Tiger loose. That fake prepared apology of Tiger's, where he had to look down constantly at his notes, was a load of BS. Why do you have to look down at notes to know who you are apologizing to?! He took advertisers money and our consumer money leading a big lie that he was a good guy and a family man, but he's is an admitted liar and there is no doubt that he is very devious, deceptive and a fraud. Tiger's troubles have only just begun. You'll see. A Tiger doesn't change its stripes.

Not that I condone adultery, but I think Woods is being treated a little unfairly. If deals all fell apart when athletes cheated on their wives, companies like Gatorade or Gillette would have nobody left to endorse their products.

These companies are idiots lol. I remember when all the companies (except Nike once again) dropped Kobe after his rape charges. They thought his image was damaged permanently. Now Kobe is back on top in the league, his jersey is the highest selling NBA jersey, and he is the most popular player in the world. To this day Sprite is still kicking themselves in the ass for dropping Kobe. Tiger is the kind of athlete who will gain his respect back when he starts dominating again, and every company except NIKE will be kicking themselves in the ass again.

whatever    

Notice, though, that Gatorade is keeping their relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation. Seems to me like Gatorade left an opening to sponsor Tiger again, once he's back to winning golf tournaments.

Gatorade is talking out of both sides of their mouths...having it both ways. Dropping Tiger, but keeping his foundation.
