Nice. Actually, truth remains, there is only one person he hurt, his wife Elin, and of course his children.

I initiated this thread and I have read so much of interest.

If I were in Tigers shoes, I will do what he did - Apology to all. As a celebraty, you create a place for yourself in many peoples lives. It hurts when you stab them from within. Its like the stab of brutus to ceaser. I experience that with Michael Jackson; only that I could not take him out completely.

That said. why did Tiger commit all those badness? he said it. He was surrounded by temptations and the means to indulge in them. Jesus words are true. The rich finds it a difficult task to do the will of the kingdom. Wealth is such a bad thing especially when it overwhelms you. Additionally, the most men have this temptation from and for women. Thats our imperfection at work. Its inclines us to do the wrong thing. Those who are able to avoid it choose to endure the difficulty of repressing it. Thats why the best way to avoid unfaithfulness is to avoid coming into the temptation of it - that means he would not have gone for fame. Yes, thats the bitter truth. Fame is wicked. it takes you up and hits you down. check history.

Remember the Poem:

"He that is down need fear no fall

He that is low, no pride

He that is humble ever shall have God to be his guide"

We live in a world of pretense. Shakespeare :

"All the world's a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:"

Except for those whose acts come up under the sun and in public, all others carry themselves a sane, saints. But to your conscience, has that been true?

I am not justifying Tiger for his wrongs. I have only come to say what I know about being in the lime light, being human imperfectly, being realistic. And thats why, when we sin, confession and an appeal for forgiveness is in place.

Elin? I have a poem for her:

IF WE ONLY UNDERSTOOD

Could we draw aside the curtains

That surround each other's lives,

See the Unclad heart and spirit,

Know what spur the action gives-

Often we would find it better,

If we only understood.

Could we judge all deeds by motives,

See the good and bad within,

Often we would love the sinner

All the while we loathe the sin.

Could we know the powers working

To o'erthrow integrity,

We would judge each other's errors

With more patient charity.

If we knew the cares and trials,

Knew the efforts all in vain,

And the bitter disappointments-

Understood the loss and gain-

Would the grim external roughness

Seem, I wonder, just the same?

Would we help where we now hinder?

Would we pity where we blame?

Ah, we judge each other harshly,

Knowing not life's hidden force;

Knowing not the fount of action

Is less turbid at its source.

Seeing not amid the evil

All the golden grains of good,

Oh, we'd love each other better

If we only understood.

I don't even call them role models. I just call them public figures. They sure as hell ain't my role models. They are flawed human beings just like you and me. Nobody is sacrosanct.

It's not purely personal o. Whether Cheetah woods likes it or not, by virtue of his megastardom he is a role model.

He has a public responsibility and an image to live up to.

Na, I already said he did it out of obligation.

If he could have his druthers he could care less about any public apology.

The media just wouldn't leave his black, sorry white, Bottom alone.

pple look up to u when your on TV, and it's justifiable. It's a position of influence, so why not use it positively.

Now, is there a thing called intimacy addiction? oyinbos have a medical term for every bad habit. Guy needs to learn self-control and respect. He disgusts me.

Im sorry but he owes the public no apology. He didnt call himself a role model and God stuck him with a family-man looking face so thats no fault of his as well. The hypocrisy of the press stuns me if one starts to investigate the press, they probably will find out that most of them are cheating on their spouses too. This will blow away by the middle of this year and he will go back to playing golf and get back his endorsements.

What I would like to know is who wrote that statement?

I would like to acquaint myself with that person or possibly the firm he/she works for to see how their mind works.

I'm so sure he will make it back to the scene, and from the speech one can easily see that the wife 've already or will pardon him. Nice speech indeed.
