Tiger Woods: Affairs "Let My Family Down"

by at . Comments

Tiger Woods' alleged affairs with two different women look to have played a role in his now-infamous car crash last week, and the evidence continues to pile up.

A few minutes ago, the golf legend posted a new statement on his official site regarding the scandal that continues to dog him and his wife, Elin Nordegren.

While he doesn't mention Jaimee Grubbs or Rachel Uchitel by name, or even admit affairs, the writing is on the wall. He also rips the media and pleas for privacy.

Tiger Woods writes:

"I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves."

"I am not without faults and am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior behind closed doors. Those feelings should be shared by my family alone."

"Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a pro athlete, I am dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny means."

"For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect."

"No matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy."

"I realize there are some who don't share my view on that issue. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one's own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions."

"Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it's difficult."

"I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."

What do you think of Tiger Woods' apology statement?

That would be easy for most of the people on here to say that Tiger doesn't deserve privacy ,that's because most of you are american and you are ignorant people ,excluding Carla & Q out of this hole thing because they are right it isn't your business or my business what goes on in tigers personal life ,doesn't matter if he is a celeb or not.The General American Society let's see ignorant,racist,you don't want gay's to marry each other.Stop being so damn ignorant.Who cares if someone's black they have every right to be here as you do,and your no better then them.Men wanna marry men or women wanna marry women that's none or your damn business and latestly you all just need to shut the fuck up mind your own god damn business and worry about your own shit and nobody else's

This is a true no win situation. Media built icons are unfortunately huge money targets, and scandal sells. It appears to be a sign of the times. Heros with morality issues are somehow expected to be morally pure,we are all sinners though so media, for the good of tigers family, keep the spotlight on dim.

The question remains as to WOULD TIGER fleece Elin if she ever cheated on him ? Iam sure he would eat her alive. tiger has to pay for it. He might be forgiven (who knows) but not forgotten. If his best and greatest achievements went aloud so would also his personals...that is the just Newton's third law..we cant help. God save him.

I think the angeriest one in the house should be Tiger's wife - she has been deceived to the highest degree. When people say, "I do" they need to realize that some things they should, "not do" because the price is too costly. This is just one of the "transgressions" that are destroying our family units (one of the key ways to destroy a society....kill the family unit). Years from now his children will read about this. They will love their dad....but who would be eager to sign up to put themselves in that situation? He didn't learn from Clinton? He was the President, and the media didn't spare him (neither did the comics....get ready Tiger, they're coming for you...at a rate of a-joke-a-minute).

Unfortunately, lack of privacy is the price you pay for fame!!

I think that the entire MEDIA wanting to find the tarnish in Tiger's armor is rediculus! He had an accident, big deal! People have vehicular accidents EVERYDAY! He happens to be a guy who didn't have anything publically negative about his person and then, BAM! There is the proof of an imperfection! Since he had an accident, there must have been something driving that to occur. Uhmmm! He must have done some diviant act! An affair! What better way to bring a man down!Why is there such a need to feed off the mishaps and mistakes of others! If we take the time to examine our selves first, how much time would we have to fault find in others? Or do we search to find and point oiut the fault in others so that our own won't bring attention to US?

Tiger Woods is the first athlete to accumulate over a billion dollars in earnings. He is the most recognizable athlete on the planet. He has a squeaky clean reputation (which is now in question). Does he actually expect people not to want to know what is going on? PS - Carla, your response is just silly.
