What if(god forbid) we ever found out Roger was cheating on Mirka? Would that make you instantly hate the man and never root for him again? Never care about his beautiful game? I know I could never feel the same after such a thing, because a HUGE amount of how I feel about Rog is tied up in his adoration and loyalty for Mirka.

Tiger's personal indiscretions, in this case, have no bearing on his accomplishments. If Roger did the same thing, I'd feel the same way.

Mirka was smitten with Rog BEFORE he became a super-star. So we know it's never been about the money.

Tiger's personal life is his personal life...Same with every other star or famous person out there.

It's estimated that 60% of spouses will cheat. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that one of the richest, most famous athletes in the world would cheat on his wife.

it wouldn't take away rog's tennis achivement, but certainly will take away his image as a class act.

I wouldn't think Rog would do that... he could have married any hot chick he liked... instead he stuck with Mirka... this is true love at work.

Tiger instead, married this swimsuit model, just for her skin deep beauty.... the blonde prolly knows nothing about golf, about his biz.... skin deep beauty therefore can only last so long and the marriage is doomed to be a failure.

sure Rog and Mirka have true, time tested love, but also don't forget that they have a business relationship too. This isn't the case for Tiger and Elin, so I don't expect Fed to fall victim to infidelity like Tiger.

Still, if it did happen? I don't even wanna think about that. I'm not sure if I'd ever think of him the same way again...

She got with Fed when he was a nobody. That is very important to a smart man.

She also has pushed him to become the great player he is and shares his passion for tennis.

Sure, she is average looking, but you have to understand that a mature man values things other than just looks. Looks fade - pretty quickly for women to be honest

If Rog did that I would lose a lot of the admiration I have for him. It would be a sad day for Fed fans.

lets face it, he wont lose his endorsement deal..
@ your question on whether or not i think roger will associate with tiger:

i think that Tiger's actions wont have an affect on the relations between Tiger and Roger, so i disagree with your statement.

however, if i was Federer, i would never have become friends with Tiger in the first place, because from my standpoint, and from a friends standpoint who has met Tiger (father works for NetJets..) he is known to be a total *****hole, as justified by his affair with that waitress.

Roger's "friendship" with Tiger was orchestrated by IMG(both are clients) to further both brands. I'm pretty sure while Roger has respect for Tiger as a big-time champ that's where it pretty much ends.

texasdoc

I don't think Tiger will lose endorsements - just like Kobe it will blow over eventually. His value might go down, however.

But, his "clean" image he has cultivated for so many years is now gone forever. It seemed pretty fake from the beginning - he stayed away from controversy so well until he screwed up big-time.

I know I could never feel the same after such a thing, because a HUGE amount of how I feel about Rog is tied up in his adoration and loyalty for Mirka.

When would he find the time? Those two are literally joined at the hip. If he was sleeping with someone else I seriously doubt it would be without her knowledge... someone has to schedule in the time. :twisted:

Seriously Roger doesn't seem the type. The innocent little catholic boy only had one girlfriend before Mirka...

If it did come out I wouldn't actually care tbh. I love his tennis. I would still cheer for him. He doesn't project an a-hole vibe.

I don't feel sorry for either of them to be honest. Tiger's wife had/has to know what she was getting into with him and what the risks are. And he knew/knows that his life is under a microscopic. He was dumb enough to risk getting caught....and he did.

Reminds me of a TV show called Mrs Merton, where a female comedian pretended to be an old lady who interviewed celebrities.

One night she was interviewing Debbie Magee, wife and stage partner of short, bald, but very successful magician Paul Daniels; when she asked the question:

"So Debbie - what was it about multi-millionaire magician Paul Daniels that first attracted you to him?":)

Uhm...

Tiger would never follow in Richard's foot-steps, He doesn't seem to be into 'black' women.

Another example of him shunning his heritage, or atleast part of his heritage.

Do all Sweedish wives go after you with a blunt object if you get caught (LOL)...

I'll defend Tiger regarding who he chose to marry. If that's who he connected on THAT level, so be it. Can any of us honestly say he exclusively is attracted to white women? I don't see his choice of a partner as an indication that he's shunning part of his heritage.

I'm mixed-race (black/hispanic/native american....with a tiny bit of white in there as wel). My current better half is half black/half white. Am I shunning my hispanic/native american heritage because of my chosen partner?

Gemini, ofcourse he has a right to marry, and then cheat on, who he wants.

I am black (black American - which in its self means a whole lot mixed in, some native american on my dad's side; a little latin (puerto rican) and irish on my mom's side going way back, and thats just what we know about) and I have dated outside my 'race', but not exclusively outside of my race.

And I think 'mixed' children are the most beautiful in the world! I am sure, if or when, you and your better half have any kids they will be pretty as can be.

The point is Tiger Woods, in my opinion, tends to shun or at least not awknowledge the 'black' part of his heritage. Notice none of the alleged mistresses were black. Also, there are many instances were Mr. Woods has refused to attend or speak at black themed celebrations, such as the recognition of Jackie Robinson in the 90's. He has also stated he doesn't like to be called 'African American' or black.

And with all that being said; it is absolutely his preogative to do what he wants. Tiger is as Tiger does. But I feel my opinion is certainly not unfounded.

He also hasn't spoken at any Asian themed celebrations and none of his mistresses are Asian. Tiger is half Asian, in case you've forgotten. Not everyone of a particular ethnic background feels like they need to "give back".

yeah, but the difference is, tiger in America is identified as black. its more or less the 'one drop' rule; which basically means if you have any 'black' in you, you are black. i.e. colin powell, barack obama etc etc.

and if anyone of a particular ethnic background doesn't want to 'give back', particularly if that ethnic background has a history of oppression and/or discrimination, then yes... i consider that person as 'shunning' that part of their ethnic background or heritage.

Ironic. Americans are proud to say that they have even one drop of aboriginal blood, yet the thought of "giving back" to the most oppressed group in the history of America (& all of North America for that matter, Canadians are no different )does not cross their minds.

The no. 1 golfer is a disgrace! Being single and sleeping with different women is one thing. I think the occasional affair from a demand of the senses whilst being married can be excused as well. But to be married and sleep with different women on an alarmingly regular basis as this moron has been doing, shows an utter disregard for the commitment that marriage is. His wife must be one dumb woman for not suspecting anything all these years!

By those standards, so is Nadal.

Nadal was mentioned alongside Fuentes, it's similiar case here with Woods.

Ties (allegded or not) to a dubios doctors are no proof of doping.

It's not a similar case. There is no proof that Rafa had any connection with Fuentes.
Tony Galea WAS Tiger Wood's doctor. But I agree, this is not a proof that he was doping.

A few years ago there was an article about people who saw the Fuentes list before the spanish autorities made it disappear.

It was said that Nadal and high-profile players from FC Barcelona and Real Madrid were on it.
Even Fuentes himself confirmed that very well known athletes were his customers, and not just cyclists.

When you think about it, literally billions were at stake, so it's not surprising that the list is gone, the story dead, and that only some cyclicst got exposed.

For me those are all similiar cases. The athletes in question are innocent until proven guilty, but some suspicions will stay in any case.

Americans do not refer to Native Americans as aboriginals, and even if we did - Native Americans have nothing to do with the discussion about Tiger Woods. He has no Native American heritage that i know of.

I don't mean to condone what Tiger did (although I would be a hypocrite if I said I would not do what he did if I were in his place), but good to see Roger being there for his friend when he's in trouble. Roger is not just a fair-weather friend. Also, I think people like Roger are exactly who Tiger needs around him, not Charles Barkley or MJ - they are bad company for Tiger.

I still don't get this, I buy Gillette because they work for me, not because Tiger/Roger/whoever else uses them...although if I did, I wouldn't stop using them because Tiger played more holes then the standard course....if the razor still works, then I'm fine with it, I don't get Gillette's reason, or any company for that matter, to pull out on endorsements, I think people are just dumb if they stop using a companys product because Tiger Woods used it....

That is what everybody says. Market intelligence people know differently. None of the following may apply to you in particular, but they apply broadly.

Endorsements may have gotten you thinking about Gillette the first time.
Endorsements may have gotten you sticking to it and not trying other brands.
Endorsements may have gotten Gillette brand recognition which is useful for political reasons and expanding abroad.
Endorsements may have convinced you that Gillette is a safe product and you are OK using it.

All these things are called "mindshare."

Tiger's personal life is his personal life...Same with every other star or famous person out there.

It's estimated that 60% of spouses will cheat. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that one of the richest, most famous athletes in the world would cheat on his wife.

I agree with you. That's his personal life. I don't think he has many girlfriends has to do with winning many tournaments. He is just unfaithful to his wife.

If he is using HGH or any other drugs to help him win tournaments. Then, this is not right to all other competitors and to his fans.
