Wie & Woods July 10, 2007, 9:37 am

Now if we could only shut off all the coverage on Woods. Many I know are tired of seeing his name or face plastered on every article, whether he is winning or 10 strokes off the lead. You don't even realize there is a whole field of golfers in any tournament besides him. Granted, he is good, but I only root for him to
1) play badly, or 2) for someone, anyone, to beat him by a narrow margin. Brings out the poor sportsmanship in him. It is easy to read his lips, he is the only golfer cussing out loud.
May all his putts get "close to the hole", even his three footers.

JP get over yourself-if Tiger Woods wants to swear that's his prerogative. He's not exactly a screwed up right wing christian who is concerned about offending those who are easily offended.
He's not a poor sportsman-hes a passionate player, and that's a fact. If you don't like the fact that he speaks his mind, stop watching him.

why doesn't the media leave her alone...her "stupid" statments are a reflection of age...she is still a kid...be critical of her handlers who put her in bad positions like pulling out of an event where it appears that she will shoot her out of the rest of the season...like letting her play when she has a bad wrist that isn't healing...she has been mismanaged since she started...she had no business playing in mens events...her managers and handlers need to be attacked, not her

Must be a slow news day if golf writers are self-examining their build up and tear down of Michelle Wie. This is what the media does -- with politicians, celebrities, faux sports stars. They invent them and then do what they can to destroy them. Watching All the President's Men over and over must be a pre-requisite for getting into the journalism business. But they know they can never be Woodward or Bernstein, so instead they go for the easy stories. The self-loathing is apparent...not to mention intellectual laziness.

As you probably know, this time of the year in England, around the time of Wimbledon and the Open, sees a lot of media coverage about when the UK is going to produce a Champion.
If it's going to be at the expense of one of our boys or girls childhoods, as has been the case of Miss Wie, I would rather we continued as under-achievers.

Nike's stock should drop a few points for throwing so much money at the hype. While the media is to blame for grossly overstating her case for celebrity, at least it didn't throw the kind of money at an unproven, spolied brat that Nike and a few other opportunists did. The media can just quietly ignore her; Nike has to keep the checks in the mail!

I certainly doubt that Nike stocks should be that much affected by a badly behaving and managed athlete. Nike has a large stable of athletes and golfers around the world including the US.

Looks to me like another Tracey Austin (tennis) pushed too hard, too young and fails.
Her interviews are to say the least, predictable, every other word "ya know" She is not that good and probably never will be, playing with the men? must be as embarrassing for them as it is for me (female 16hdcap)
from England.
Lets hope she dissappears from the game as soon as.......

Comparing Tracy Austin and Michelle Wie is way off. Austin was ranked #1 in the world and won the US Open twice and a Wimbledon doubles title. She bowed out to injuries, not lack of talent.
