Default Tiger is a classless Jackass

When are people going to wake up to this? His fans are completetley taken in by the fawning TV media.

Should have been assessed a penalty for his behavior yesterday. Raking the green. I heard John Feinstein on the radio and he says Tiger has been fined more money than anyone, by far. For swearing and all kinds of rude behavior. The PGA tour doesnt announce their fines. He also mentioned how he should have been assessed a two shot penalty at the Masters. For the way he addressed a short putt. Something about the way he straddled the line. Anyway, they had officials looking at it and they agreed a penalty was in order. But the Masters committee themselves overruled and would not allow it.

Admire his ability and drive. But thats about it.

Did you see him on Thursday when he screams "God Damn It, Tiger" right into the mic next to the tee marker after he hits his drive, the ball then lands in the fairway...what the hell is that?

He's a petulant little prick.

I hope his shirt fits okay today. If so, they'll be able to show some other players on TV.

No such luck. NBC continues to fixate on every Tiger shot and step. Totally ignoring guys like Allan, Choi, Toms, etc.

Doesnt matter that Tiger is five back, on his way to being 10 back. All they want to show is Tiger. Nothing else is important. The leaders even are utterly irrelevant. Just Tiger 24/7. All the announcers making excuses and begging him to do well.

They do it because as you guys know, he is the Michael Jordan of Golf.

He has brought it too a new level and he is still by far the most popular golfer in the world. There is no way they aren't going to focus on him.

Read something about how he had an interviewer banned because he did not like the questions.
The network capitulated.
