      I think that the sponsors have a perfect right to cancel their commitments for Tiger Woods endorsements because the endorsement process is a two way street.

      In compensation for saying that you as an endorser such as Tiger Woods is, he puts his reputation on the line as colladeral against the quality and reliability of the products he endorses.  If his reputation is in question then so is the product.

      As a product owner you need to distance yourself from any misdeeds as a testament to your own reputation.

    Yes, a bunch of ad executives, some of whom have probably had affairs, decide it's bad...

      UW, try not to be the typical liberal, you have no idea whether these people have had affairs or not so why bring up nonsense?

        How do you on one hand criticize a person for being presumptious, while at the same presume that you know something about their political affiliation?

          I'm not being presumptuous, I know her political persuasion. But I didn't say don't be a liberal, I said try not to be a "typical liberal" that is different, isn't it? Yes, it is! Thanks for playing "words mean things" game!

            You're hilarious, and a little dense, but we can certainly agree that we should carefully choose our words.

    Unfortunately this is a sad example of a lack of morals causing trouble for an athelete. If bad behavior was ok this wouldn't happen but it isn't. We must set a good example for our youth without it we're lost. We must demonstrate some self control.

      Tell That to EVERY Other Successful person who has to contend 24/7 with the groupies, golddiggers and stalkers (the ones who lack the morals)!!!!

      Besides; his Kiwi Caddie has stated that most of it is BS... except for the 8 foot tall blonde from Florida. yikes
      In that case; one of your senators 'put him up to it!' lol

      "WE?"  Who is "WE" ?   What parent's need to stop doing is encouraging this hero worship of athletes and celeberties. It's stupid! We pretend to know someone because we watch them play a kid's game on TV? We pretend to know someone because we watch a scripted interview on "E!", "MTV" or "Disney"???
      No wonder kids don't listen to their parents. Paren'ts tell their kids to be like this guy/girl, then when they do its a problem. Parent's should take their responsibilty to their children more personally and more seriously. Parents should be the children's role model. Oh I forgot we are all too busy trying to keep up with the Jones'.
