Link to NY Post article. Looks like Tiger's up to #10 so far....and counting.
I'd say she will never come back, but I have a stupid relative that took her cheating dog back. She made all the money, he punches her, he either doesn't work at his financial job or is a very, very mediocre player, she's the VP of a very, very major company you would know...and she took this cheating bast*rd back...can we say stupid?
So, Elin might just take him back..for the kids sake if nothing else.

It made me think of this clip from a movie. Warning: do not enter if you are not open to crude humor. You know me though.

I completely agree.

If someone is being abused in any way by their partner and stays often it is co-dependency rather than any great "love" that keeps them there. Granted, there are financial issues that can keep someone there, too.
But Elin has enough money to leave, and, if she were my daughter, unless Tiger gets treatment for sex abuse and MEANS it, I'd tell her to split. Who needs the humiliating and totally hurtful situation he's put her in? Not good for her self-esteem at all.
Obviously Elin's Mama has been stressed out to her max over this as she's been put in the hospital. This has turned into a real fiasco now.
Something tells me Tiger isn't going to change, tho. Hope I'm wrong, but it wouldn't go along with his personality at this age I think. Just my guess.
Just a sad situation all around.

I agree totally, Orchid. Unless Tiger goes in to in-patient therapy, Elin should split for her own sanity and also for the stability of her children. Always have to put minor children first in my opinion. You have to bring them up in a healthy environment and sometimes that means divorce with one parent as the custodian.

Well now that the woman of the board have convinced me that Tiger isn't as good looking as I thought, I can't imagine any reason Elin would stay with the guy.

It is interesting that my opinion has completely changed about this as more or more bimbo's have a appeared. When I first heard about it, I felt sorry for the guy, and wished for the "good old days" when the sports writers would have kept a story like this under their hats, and just swapped stories at the bar.

At this point, I think his public humiliation is richly deserved. At least Wilt Chamberlain had the good sense to remain a bachelor, and latter made this interesting observation.

It is better to have sex a thousands times with one woman, than have sex with a thousand woman.

Alot of these Don Juans finally stop when they hit somewhere around their late 50's. Some never stop.
If the mother stays--and the kids see how poorly the father treats the mother even if he stays around--it really produces alot of unhealthy behavior in their children.
In fact, I don't know of one guy that had a father who cheated--and lived with the mother and that son--who didn't end up being a cheater himself maybe on a lesser level, but he cheated also.
So, if Elie stays for the kids she may have a rude awakening much later down the road with the behavior of her own children: the boys end up being cheaters; the girls assume that being cheated on or abused is normal. Not good for the kids at all, and really not good for the kids to see Mama treated poorly.

clifp: I don't think many women would stay with a guy because he's good looking. We women aren't the visual creatures you men are. In fact, I wondered if Tiger married Elin because she is such a trophy looker, and then he marries her and finds out they really aren't compatible. Another dumb move by Mr. Little Head.

No I understand. I doubt that looks alone would make a decisive difference to men, much less to woman. At this point, I was just saying the reasons to stick with the guy are getting less and less. Rich and famous only get you so far in the relationship department (In our society probably too far but... )

Okay, first let me say that, if what we are reading about Tiger is true, then he is a slimeball. "Only unto thee until death do you part." That's the promise, and there are no escape clauses.

Our Elin must be feeling very betrayed. She and Tiger went to school together and struggled to establish their respective professional lives. He and she would have long discussions during their college years, and he admired her sharp mind and mastery of Greek philosophy. They sacrificed together and then-he goes and cheats on her!

Oh, wait. That stuff never happened. Tiger was rich and successful when they met, and he was surely attracted primarily by her physical appearance. Now, she's shocked that he's a dog and that he is attracted to beautiful women.

Elin is surely furious. That honeypot trick is supposed to work one time, but not again.

Don Draper and Tiger Woods

Ok I am not sure how many of you are fans of Mad Men, but I watched the first two season in record time on Netflix.

I was wondering if anybody else sees the similarities between Don Draper and Tiger Wood. For those of you unfamiliar with the show Don is handsome Madison Ave. Ad executive married to a trophy wife.



Don is also a womanizer almost on Tiger's scale, by the end of season 2 he is up to four and probably five affairs.

Yet, I find my reaction to Tiger affairs and Drapers infidelities to be quite different. In Tigers case I am disgusted by it and find it inexcusable. In the case of Draper, I know what he is doing is wrong, and also wonder why he cheats, given how sweet and beautiful his wife is, but I am a lot more sympathetic to him.

I wonder if Tigers problem is we are only seeing one side of the story. Either that or he needs fire his PR manager and hire the writers from Mad Men.

I don't watch Mad Men, but is Draper having multiple affairs at the same time? Also what type of women does he cheat with? In Tiger's case it seems to be these tarty types that he would never marry. It's almost like there is a good Tiger and a bad Tiger. Good Tiger goes home to the trophy wife, the mansion and the two perfect kids. Bad Tiger takes prescription drugs and has sex with random porn stars and Las Vegas waitresses, does all the things that good Tiger would like to do, but doesn't because it would ruin his image. It is like he is rebelling against everything that may have been forced down his throat at a young age. I think the thing that is likely outraging so many at the moment is the fact that he was having all these affairs at once and to not be practicing safe sex, well how silly is that?

On the Good Tiger / Bad Tiger, he definitely tried to have it both ways. One one hand the clean, wholesome clean cut up image that was portrayed, and on the other the Tiger on the prowl with all the affairs. It actually is a lot like the Eliot Spitzer affair who on one hand tried to portray himself as one that cracks down on the seedy stuff and then there he was client # ...

Not saying that I condone, Tiger's "transgressions", but society itself, I suppose gives mixed messages. On one hand if he was not married, being a womanizer, jock is looked up upon. Even Tom Brady, who's married to a supermodel and is totally clean cut and wholesome (as far as we know), gets chuckled at sometimes as his wife's "errand boy". Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

If anyone is interested in what sacrifices Tiger's parents made that allowed him to become who he is, I found this on the net. Someone mentioned in a post that his parents made sacrifices, and I'm sure they did; but, I got so curious I dug this up. Pretty interesting, by the way:


Tiger Woods: a biography - Google Books *


* In fact, when you click on this link, take the scroll bar at the right hand of your screen and go backwards. You can get all the way to the beginning of this article and back to his parents backgrounds. Really interesting now...
