So...people don't give two shits about golf games? Sounds about right. LOL I'd sandblast my asshole before buying a golf game.

Is that what you're calling it, these days?

I guess so. I'm a bit confused about what you mean, but I'll just say "yes".

Heard about that a while back. Will his image recover for next years game?

It should be called Man-whore edition.

My comment about the media being fickle also applies to how soon they forget once they find a more ripe drama cow. Almost everyone's forgotten the controversies surrounding Duane Chapman and Hulk Hogan from a couple years ago, and they've moved on with their careers. In a year's time, none of this will really matter.

^What happened with Hulk?  And as for this not mattering in a year, this won't matter in about 3 days when, like you said, something more interesting happens.

A boob job wouldn't be a scandal. Boobs are expected.

So the scandal is that he had a boob job but ended up with pecs?

At this point in the development of this story I'd have to say that Tiger and EA are done.  I don't care whatsoever about his infidelity, like I said earlier I actually think more of him now, but last night I was putting away some games and I saw Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 -- and the game is ruined, in concept. I can't even look at the cover without thinking of a dude who is a sex machine (when I should be thinking of mellow golf gameplay).  His endorsement as a golfer is completely undermined.

If I was EA, I'd give the franchise a rest in 2010 (which benefits them in their need to reduce costs and game releases anyway) and see what the public acceptance barometer is with Tiger in 2011.

Tiger just needs some time away from the spotlight and all will be fine, assuming that no other bombshells get dropped on him.  It wasn't too long ago that Kobe Bryant cheated on his wife and was accused of rape.  A couple years later it's all water under the bridge and people are cheering him again as the best player in the NBA.  

Your idea of EA taking a year off is probably a good idea, though it's EA so lord knows it won't happen.  I actually think they'll put some big classic golfer on the game like Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicklaus for a year and then go back to Tiger.

Here is the solution. Replace Tiger on the boxart with a real Tiger and some actual woods in the background.

This way you keep the name and you dont have to pay that lecherous beast.

 It's probably already available. I'll let one of you dudes google it though. It would HAVE to be already done.

When his son Nick was drinking and driving, then wrecked his car, and turned his friend into a drooling vegetable, it was revealed that Hulk illegally bought liquor for his kids, ultimately contributing to the accident. He was pegged worst father of the year for a while.

Of course, Hulk had little to do with the accident, and maybe vegetable boy should have least worn a seatbeat, but the media was having a slow couple of weeks. I think he was on Larry King, as well.

I personally thing Tiger is done with EA. Do you really think EA would want Tiger to represent their golf series, especially on the Wii which is a family console? I don't think so.

And his fall will take a miracle to recover. If it was just one affair than I think most people would forgive and say people make mistakes. But this is 14 women already including porn stars where one woman said they had an affair during his bachelor party! Can you believe that? Tiger slept around right before his marriage! And the crazy thing is, there could be more women.

I'm pretty shocked, but at the same time, there was something inherently off about Tiger when you see his nuances.  Like how he swears more than a rap album and throws golf clubs more then Roger Clemens throwing bats.

For such a nice guy who supposedly has a heart of gold, that's sort of contradicting personalities.

But it's shocking how many women are coming out. If it was just one, it's not surprising since almost every athlete with money do these things. But when a second was revealed, I knew trouble was brewing. And then more started coming out, than I knew that he's got a problem.

And I can understand that he's athlete of the decade, but really, he's not really an athlete. Michael Jordan is an athlete. Can Tiger dunk a ball from the free throw line? Tiger's just a great golfer.

Yeah, but EA seems to be sticking by him. I hope the next game bombs so we can see what happens.
