Tiger needs to come out when and where he can, be away from the press and the complete disregard for ones well being. The press and its right to know gets really old when they publish the location of the school that his children attend. What are they trying to accomplish?
I don't know any Father that wouldn't get pissed if you go after his family. This should be old news but the press has to sensationalize anything they can. Stop whining Alex, he made a statement, he doesn't owe you anything, he doesn't owe any of us outside of his family anything.
The attitude comes from the press, personal life is not any of their business.

Woods has clearly proven he's no Bobby Jones or Jack Nicklaus -- at best he's golf's Pete Rose. But he's not the real problem. The real problem is how professional golf -- including the sycophantic golf media -- is trashing the reputation of the game for the future. Now, golf is just another source of media stories about illicit drugs, violence, sex, criminal conduct, addiction, drunkenness, gambling, wife beating, scandal, hush-money payments, lying, prostitutes, and narcissistic privilege. Where are the guardians of the game? Doesn't the Tour have the equivalent of a "morals clause"? What will prevent this trend from getting worse? Everyone in pro golf who makes money from Tiger enables and overlooks his abhorrent behavior. News flash, boys: Those guys don't "own" golf, they "owe" it. The 40-50 million people around the world who have played the game year in and year out for centuries don't "owe" the pros respect or privileged lives or anything. Best wishes to Woods as a human, but "thanks a lot" for giving back to the game with such a lasting legacy.

I tend to disagree with aceputt.

Regardless of Tiger Woods' indiscretions, he is still an MVP in golf. He can take off for one year and come back stronger than ever as he proved when his knee went under the knife.

Unfortunately, as the media plays up his personal life, his fans may get disillusioned.

By Tiger 'stepping up to the plate' and taking the heat for what he did, it is a step in the right direction. Woods is attempting to right his public wrongs for the sake of the game.
