Tiger Woods Won't Gamble With His Image

3/5/2010 2:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods Won't Gamble With His ImageTiger Woods just blew off a $75 million dollar endorsement offer from an Irish gambling company -- and that is how you know you're rich.

The company, PaddyPower.com, claims the deal would have spanned five years -- but Tiger just wouldn't take the bait.

Woods -- who was dumped by several major sponsors since the sex scandal broke -- will get another chance to change his mind ... Paddy claims it's planning to come back with an even sweeter offer in the near future.

I NEED REAL PROOF!!!    

I'm glad he has shown some integrity from this whole ordeal! There will be other endorsements that aren't shady like this one, no need to endorse gambling, it's not like there isn't enough exposure already! Good for him for not embarrassing himself and his family any further. I'm sure once he's back on the golf course, endorsements will pour back in, the decent ones, ask Kobe. Go Tiger and Elin!!!

Tiger... don't care what people think. You have already messed up things with Elin. Now.... continue on and bang tons of hot chicks. SEX, FOOD, SLEEP, MONEY...and then more SEX.

You are in a position to try out as many chicks as you want. Take advantage of it.

Excuse me, but John Wayne is/was an American Icon. Tiger, is NOT an icon. Just because he play's golf really well, doesn't make him an icon in my book. Anybody can play really good golf if they practice!! But John Wayne, he was a REAL American!!!

Anybody can play good golf if they practice? Are you retarded seriously.. While golf is not the most physical intensive/straining sport obviously it is in fact one of if not the hardest sport to master. Golf is extremely hard, Tiger is beyond any golfers level play ever. We will never ever see a golfer this good again.

•Regions Bank filed two lawsuits on 12/23/2008 naming Menaker Investments I as the defendant.
o 2008-CA-0033992-O for default of $3,880,000.00
o 2008-CA-0033999-O for default of $2,510,000.00

•Regions Bank filed the lawsuit on 1/27/2009 naming Giles-Menaker as the defendant.
o 2009-CA-002547-O for default of $1,700,000.00

•Mitch Menaker files for Bankruptcy on 7/29/2009

•Mitch Menaker forms MMDL LLC with Donald Lake (former construction loan contact for Giles-Menaker from Regions Bank) on 6/8/2009

•Mitch Menaker is granted bankruptcy 11/5/2009

•Mitch Menaker and Donald Lake start I Scream Humour Enterprises

Here is what I am finding hard to accept:
•How does a man default on over $8,000,000 in construction loans from Regions Bank, File for and get approved for bankruptcy, and in the meantime form and develop a new business with the man who was the main contact with Regions Bank for both companies?

•How does Regions Bank allow for the overdraft of a "purchase card" to reach over $140,000 before turning it off (as laid out in lawsuit)?
