I do not see this story newsworthy. I do not see any purpose for the nonstop coverage of a man who picks up golf clubs and hits balls. This story is the headlines of every news cast day after day. I think it shows the ignorance of people and the disrespect for peoples personal lifes. I think the news media in America is a national disgrace, and if I was in the the journalism field I would be embarrassed to have chosen such a career. This story as well as the many escapades of celebrities and politicians, we continually hear about has gone beyond tiresome.

The country has tremendous problems, and the reason it does is because we do not focus on them at all. We focus on foolishness such as Tiger Woods. A man who hits golf balls and that is his contribution to our country. Something is wrong with us as a country.

The non-stop reporting of Tiger Woods is almost as bad as that couple that party-crashed The White House!

Oh you don't see why the story is newsworthy? You think it's nobody's business? It IS the public's business!!! Let me tell you why!

Ya see, Tiger Woods' brand name is responsible for the livelihood and assets of millions of people. If you own stock (or own funds that have stock) in any of the companies that Tiger Woods is involved then you ARE DEFINITELY affected by what the man does, both publicly and privately. If you own a home in a development that has a Tiger Woods golf course your home value is affected by what the man does. If you work for any of the many companies that makes or sells Tiger Woods products, then you are affected by what Tiger Woods does. Investors, developers, employees, sponsors, all have a monetary interest in Tiger Woods. It is the public's business what the man does. When you earn $1 Billion from the public, with over 90% of it coming off the golf course - your life is virtually always of interest to the public that has given you this huge amount of money earning ability... THAT is why it is newsworthy!!!

Multiple sources are alleging a cool $1 Million payoff from Tiger Woods's peeps to buy Rachel Uchitel's silence, which is why her confessional press conference today was axed! Tiger's people are desperate to keep Rachel from talking about her relationship with Tiger Woods and that they were willing to go a long, long way to keep her silent.


How many other women in Tiger's extramarital life want a cool $1 Million?

Gold is currently trading at around $1,220 USD per ounce. I wouldn't doubt that it may go up to $2K, but it's nowhere close to that figure yet.

Tiger should have played the Michael Jackson card and had anyone that came in contact with him sign a confidentiality agreement. Then he wouldn't have to pay anyone and he could have all the private affairs he wants. He should have paid these girls off sooner to save himself the public embarrassment. Now that he sees that the women he was having affairs with only wanted money he should have satisfied their requests a long time ago.

It is so telling where the heads are of these girls that they don't care about a married man's wife or his kids, but some of them kept years of evidence. Just messed up.

Rachel's story must be pretty juicy.

Also, he shouldn't have to give his wife any more money. Come on Tiger these other women took you for a ride and now your wife wants more than she deserves, he must not be listening to anyone right now and going off of emotion. I hope it isn't true that he is revising his pre-nup and or is funding a private bank account, and giving Elin half of his earnings. That would be the stupidest moves so far. The man should just get a divorce.
