Mr. Brandon Tucker is defending one of his buddies probably, he wants to be holier than the pope.
Maybe they should give the so-called Paparazzi some education........

Tiger's behavior April 1, 2008, 11:27 pm

Tiger Woods is very competitive and the photographers around him as well as media outnumber any golfer as do the number of fans. He is on camera for every shot. The incompetence of photographers and the resultant disgust by Tiger is not observed as much for other golfers because there is far less opportunity for it to happen to them and their outbursts are rarely observed. Plus, no other golfer is in contention as much as Tiger literally making every shot count more that other golfers week to week. If a photographer is so unskileed in the timing on an action photo that he or she has to shoot in the back swing or before ball contact, that credential should not be on them. One mistake with Tiger swinging could have an affect on golf history if there is one shot that effects hsi ability to win a title especially if it is a major.

The only reason I watch golf is to see tiger win and break some records. If an f u slips out, oh well. You are probably another jealous person who would be lucky not to make double his scores in any round against him. Be quiet and quit whining. If you don't enjoy watching a master at work. shut off your tv and shut your mouth, I'll be watching Tiger and enjoying every minute of it. Thank you

Tiger's temper April 1, 2008, 7:08 pm

We all have a point where the pressure can get to you, and outbursts occur. I am reminded of a story Arnold Palmer told when he was a boy, and threw a club over a tree in disgust. His dad drove him home from that tournament and told him if he ever did that again, he wouldn't ever play golf. It shook Palmer, and he went on to become a great champion. But more importantly, he became the greatest ambassador the game has known. It's time to grow up and lead the sport into it's next great era.

Just because someone has a press pass doesn't mean they are not an inconsiderate idiot. Some morons can only be forced to have some consideration for the golfers by vigorous chastising and/or threats of violence.

It would be nice if we didn't have tempers that sometimes go off. But we do and Tiger is in the spotlight. If we were all put on mic's I am sure we would not be to impressed with ourselves.
Cheney tells Pat Leahy F***k You on the Senate floor and Bush flips off the press. Which is worse? I think Tiger's error is not near as bad.
He has done alot for children and golf and a slip here and there should be forgiven and you sir, should not be out to "lynch" him

If you think Tiger cursing occasionally belittles golf as a whole, you know nothing about the sport.

The good ole days? Gentleman's game? Polite? Integrity?
In the words of John McEnroe now revered despite all his behavior & considered one of the greatest, now a spokesperson, senior elder of the sport;
Ask Lee Elder & others of that generation about the 'good ole days & gentlemen? About the number of N-words, death threats, denials, exclusion and other tolerance of assaults on decency from said 'gentlemen'.
So every time you her an expletive from Tiger chalk it up as backwash from your dads, grand-dads, uncles, etc.
Come on you know what's at base of your feelings, you know the REAL issue; why you can't give him his due; he's too rich, too dominate in the deepest golf field ever, too dark, too young, too fit and his wife too fine and much much much too blonde. So any chance to rip him & you jump all over it. But at the end of the day all the above is still the reality, he is who he is and you're still you. It's all of you who piss in the wind of greatness that spoil it with your animosity.

I'm very pleased that you also, Rinehart, have the courage of your convictions to confront what I have indicated in this medium in the past. Many of the negative comments regarding Tiger Woods really are the verbal efforts of "racial arsonists". People who may, are may not be racist, but love to fan the fires of devisiveness with their anomosity regarding Tiger's success. I am very amazed and frustrated when there are references to the "good old days" and the past "gentlemen" of golf. And my reactions come from my wondering why no one has questioned why Mr. Jones, Snead, Sarazen, Nelson, Hogan, etc., never questioned/protested the "no blacks allowed" policies of the PGA Tour? Never stepped up and denounced the racist, vile behavior projected against black golfers who dared to attempted to participated in tour events?? We revere these men without question and denounce Tiger because once in a while he curses in anger/frustration. And make the determination that he lacks class and integrity. I guess discriminating against a multitude of black golfers is less corruptable than cursing front of a number of white patrons!!! Ahh, the good old days!!!

People have selective memories as the rant with false indignation. You are right, none of the greats of yester-year were STAND UP enough GUYS to confront the status quo and denounce the racist, vile elements around golf. Even in the name of competition the very life-blood of any athlete worth his weight. They skated because no one shoved a mic in their face to ask what they thought about it, they were protected. None stepped up they way Tiger stepped in and came to the defense of Kelly Tilghman. He even took criticism from many because he didn't say more, the type of scrutiny that those old guys never faced even when the issue was much broader & pervasive than an awkward ill-advised comment like Tilghman's. And even though this is the reality it never stopped people of color from appreciating & enjoying their performance. Not trashing them at every opportunity.
