4/11/2010 4:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hope you enjoyed the footage of those Tiger Woods airplane banners -- 'cause you'll never see them again on ESPN.

TMZ has learned the Worldwide Leader in Sports has instructed staff members that they're banned from running the footage on their networks and their website -- despite the fact that ESPN already aired it earlier this week.

Sounds like Tiger's still in bed with someone besides Elin ...

Anything to protect the black shill for the white people.He still hasn't figured it out LOL good. I hope he loses everything he ever plays in again. Elin is no different than the 15 actually she's about the 8th or 9th, not even the 1st. LOL. Good example she is showing for the married younge women out there, stay for the $$$ and nothing else matters. She is just as bad as the other 15. Actually she is worse.



To bad about the banners, but then again its not a Free Country at all, that is quite evident. The golfing people will do anything to protect their image. Even defend scum bags.

Welcome to the soviet union. We have a socialist president and now the fans aren't able to be heard on TV.



You got the faa singling out an individual or organizatoin which is against federal law.



What else can tigers money do?



He crys on tv about people watching him, but that's only when he doesn't want to be watched. It's okay to watch him when he wants you to watch him, jut don't fly any planes over.



After all, what's your first amendment anyhow when big money is involved.



The truth is most golfers are scumbags, drugs, drinking, it's the life.



I would know since I have golfers in the family, semi-pro ones.



Tiger is a scumbag, just ask his wife (if you can find her).

I hope the WhoreMaster loses big time. It would only encourage others to do the same thing if he wins. He has learned absolutely nothing in the last 6 months except how to lie a bit better. He is devoid of anything decent and to see those white old fat golfers in the galley clapping for that piece of garbage is revolting.

He has dropped the "gentlemen's game" down a peg or two or three. It is just not what it was at all, its becomes soiled and dirty. I shut off the tournament,I just don't care anymore. Its a waste of time.

This is Ridiculous!It just goes to show that money is the root behind everything. FIrst of all not ALL airspace is restricted above August at the Master's. Only below a specified altitude is restricted for the broadcasting segment and security. Having the FAA move to make an "unannounced" check is a douchebag move, at least have a sense of humor for all that you've done. This guy is practicing his right of "free speech" as long as it comes with $$$. When doing an inspection the FAA can find anything small or large, I wish the guy had immediately fixed the citation and gotten right back up in the air, those last msgs were hilarious. THis is RIDONKULOUS!!!

What I find ridiculous is the FAA checking out this guy's plane. As was mentioned earlier, it was a total abuse of power. The airspace above Augusta and the Master's is restricted at a specific altitude, anything above that is allowed. I find this to be unconstitutional and shows how money is the driving force behind everything. This man should be allowed his free speech as long as he is following the proper FAA guidelines and airspace restrictions for the area. If they do a search they can find anything they like to a degree. REDONKULOUS if you ask me!

Censorship at Work! I know that ESPN is a corporation has a set of rules. I am Tiger did not win the Masters. Censorship and restrictive air-space...I guess Money talks,and B.S. walks.

They hired idiots to commentate for tennis & golf. As soon as the flaws of the sport brats were exposed, the channel controllers try to confuse the viewers & cover up how stupid they were to portray the sport brats as heroes.The real gentlemen are treated like scum.

No, TMZ, it seems like someone has some sense and some taste. Something TMZ is always at a loss for. The media is the major problem!

I can't believe this ad! Using the voice of Tiger Woods' dead father in a Nike commercial to try and save his image is really low. I think this is immoral by Nike to stand by a man who has quite clearly lost his mind and has cheated on his wife an unbelievable 18 times! How can we even consider him a genuine sports star any more. Most of the sports blogs listed on http://www.dozensports.com say he is not going to recover from his image setback. Even using your late father can't help Tiger, I'm sorry, that's the way of the world.

It's interesting how this Buddhist was so deeply affected by being forced to miss his son's first birthday, etc ... yet he evidently had no problem banging his neighbor's daughter in his office with his son's crib right beside him ? Everything about Tiger Woods is so utterly contrived, calculated and self-serving and is completely void of basic decency. In fact it's actually quite pathetic, especially when compared to the example set by so many of his contemporaries.

All this hoopla about the number of women Tiger had at least the rabid mob can't make up stories about him being gay or accuse him of pedophilia like they did Michael Jackson. Tiger's reputation as a 'pants man' even if established with hookers/mistresses is indelible etched in our psyche.
Unless they can find a horse to scream 'sexual harassment Tiger is bruised and battered from all the negative publicity but he will live to fight another day.

The banner was perfect for a jackass whore who considers his grand heterosexual beast persona is between his lwgs.



Michael Jackson fans, I don't believe, should fly a Murray-associated banner because he deserves no celebrity.
They media ridiculed good people & never cared when the court & law demolished MJ for no reason. They made money from that disgraceful display of humanity but now they think it's shocking & awful to watch poor Woods suffer. LOL
