The Ryder Cup September 20, 2006, 12:14 pm

Whoa!!! Before all of you Tiger haters allow this childish and ridiculous article bring you out of the woodwork...again, remember this is not about the best player on the planet. This article is about some ill-informed writer who has a license to write whatever he thinks will get a huge rise out of the readership. It may be why some of us check in periodically. Partly, hoping for at least something remotely related to golf, and to see what hair-brained comments are on the menu for the week.
At this stage of his career, Tiger should not and will not be considered for, and is certainly not interested in being captain!! In past Ryder Cups, with the likes of Payne Stewart, Davis Love, etc. as teammates, Tiger was respectful of those guys longevity and accomplishments to declare that they, not him, were ones who should be in the leadership roles. He is 30 years old with ten years experience as a player on the PGA, and just ahead of Ben Hogan as my favorite player of of all-time; but, a captain at this time...absolutely not. There are others in the wings who have earned that priviledge.

I must say I found your article rather childish and ill informed. Part of the problem in past years is that the US side has not worked well together and that your champion Tiger has been shelled more often than not.
When the US was winning on a routine basis, the teams were comprised of members that pulled together and worked hard to support each other. Perhaps a bit of the support that the Euro side shows each other could well be utilized by our highly ranked yet unproductive players of the recent past.

Let me get this straight .... you want to take guy with a 7-11-2 Ryder Cup record and make him CAPTAIN? Interesting strategy.
