Admiral Donutz;5246767 Uh? How do you mean "he had to"? :Puzzled: They amde him? That would eb sad. The only people this concerns his his family.
To go back and answer this question: His sponsors made him. Not directly of course, but if he didn't he'd have to live in a SMALLER villa than he does already.
Since apparently a lot of people don't want to wear shoes or shave with razors endorsed by a man who likes to fuck, they won't buy products endorsed by him, no sales - no sponsors, no sponsors - poor little Tiger.
Poor little tiger - public spectacle made of very personal life.
The media is really blowing his situation out of proportion.

Destroyer25;5247448Donutz, you've just made a fool of yourself. ;) That's field Hockey, lame sport. That's not real hockey.
This is real hockey.Spoiler: Show
[/QUOTE]You are the one makig a fool out of yourself, that is Ice Hockey and it sucks (too aggresive and were are the damn skirts?!), Regular Hockey is the one and true hockey.
When people speak of Hockey they talk about hockey on grass. Atleast overhere. :deal:
Let's check the (English) dictionary: Hockey has two entries at encyclopedia Britannica:
Now let's check an addtional source, Webster:
Main Entry: hock·ey Pronunciation: \ˈhä-kē\ Function: noun Etymology: perhaps from Middle French hoquet shepherd's crook, diminutive of hoc hook, of Germanic origin; akin to Old English hōc hook Date: 1527
1 : field hockey 2 : ice hockey
And a third source, wikipedia (hehe): [QUOTE=Hockey]Hockey
Hockey refers to any of a family of sports in which two teams play against each other by trying to maneuver a ball, or a hard, round, rubber or heavy plastic disc called a puck, into the opponent's net or goal, using a hockey stick.

Field hockey is a team sport in which a team of players,attempt to score goals by hitting, pushing or flicking the ball with hockey sticks into the opposing team's goal. Its official name is simply hockey, and this is the common name for it in many countries. However, the name field hockey is used in countries where the word hockey is usually reserved for another form of hockey, such as ice hockey or street hockey. (..)
Source: Field Hockey
Ice hockey (frequently simply called Hockey in countries where it is the most popular form of hockey) is a team sport played on ice, in which skaters use sticks to direct a puck into the opposing team's goal. It is a fast-paced and physical sport. Ice hockey is most popular in areas that are sufficiently cold for natural reliable seasonal ice cover, such as Canada, the northern United States, the Nordic countries (especially Sweden and Finland), Russia, the Baltic States, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.

Therefor we may conclude: - Field Hockey, also officially known as Hockey (Or "Hockey, also known as Field Hockey") - Ice Hockey, known as hockey were it is popular
Now in central western Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Germany, France...) hockey err.. "field hockey" is obviosuly more popular so it's known as "hockey" there. Dito for Ice Hockey in the US and Canada, same deal.
Ice Hockey>Field Hockey.

Your wife cheats on you it's your problem you couldn't keep her, you cheat on her you're an evil person. Nice to see gender equality at play.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Nemmerle again.

Nemmerle;5247636Your wife cheats on you it's your problem you couldn't keep her, you cheat on her you're an evil person. Nice to see gender equality at play.
I don't really keep track of this sort of thing due to my complete disinterest as you may have seen from my post(s) so I have to ask:
How many females were in a similar situation (cheating) and didn't had to bite the dust as much? That various males (in the US) had to go through the dust is quite apparant so...
I'll stick to my earlier statement: I don't give a damn, this is between the people involved in the relation and they are free to handle it anyway they see fit.
Whether it involves a male or female obviously makes no difference at all.
IMHO it's quite simple, find out how your partner feels about sex or relations outside of marriage (or whatever you are into, just living together is just fine). If you agree with such that it's okay there is no problem at all. If you promise to stay faithfull to one person and don't keep this promise, well you fucked up and it will be up to your partner to forgive you or not (or you could ofcourse end your current relationship and seek your hapiness elsewhere). It only concerns the people in the relationship and it's simple as that.
The problem is that males are stereotyped more as adulterers than females, so they catch much more shit if they cheat than if a woman does it.
I don't know the true male/female adulterer ratio, but I think it's closer to 1 than people think or is shown that it is.
Tiger's probably a good guy for the most part. The only reason I'm slightly enjoying this charade is I think it's a much needed wake up call for him, though I don't think his having strayed from family values is entirely his fault. His mom seemed to be the only one in the family that tried to keep him grounded, but he only ever spoke of his dad because his dad milked him to be his little superstar from age 3, and obviously Tiger started loving that when all the money and fame came. Without the needed grounding, all that attention and success can easily go to a person's head. Maybe now he'll realize what his mom was trying to do for him and stop giving all the credit to dad. Other than that I consider this story tabloid trash.
I also agree with some of the critics though. The apology seemed forced, rehearsed and late in coming. Despite his mood whilst giving it, it sounded as if his agent had written it for him.
