Did anyone find Tiger Woods' apology to the world, strange? I mean, why should he have apologized to us? Our name isn't 'Elin' and we're not his wife. The only apology he owes is to his wife. Was it to get his fans and the sponsors who have dumped him to support him once again?
If that was indeed the reason behind his apology, then it's a scathing comment on the maturity levels of his fans. It indicates that they are not mature enough to differentiate his professional achievements from his personal problems. For instance, would you stop believing that Roger Federer is a great player if you found out that he's been cheating on his wife? I wouldn't. I don't think the crystal meth episode made Agassi any less a player either.
Is Tiger Woods' apology real and sincere? I'm not so sure. After all, in an age where even film reviews are paid for, you can't rely on any public figure to show you their real side.
Do you think Tiger owes us an apology?
P.S.: In his apology that was aired on television around the world, he says he felt that "he deserved to give in to the temptations that came with his success". That's the lamest justification for infidelity I have ever heard.
