Tiger Woods’ official statement

tiger_woods_familyTiger Woods has posted this statement on his official site:

“As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore.  This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again. This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible. The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false. This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.”

    Lying won’t help matters.

    She said what she did.

    Stories are twisted and the media is twisting it more. People go through problems in relationships and struggles are a part of growing and hopefully changing for the better.

    But…it’s not okay if she abused him, is it? The truth needs to be found out by the police. It’s only fair. They do this with abused women. That’s why they are still pursuing this. Besides, could you imagine all the b!tching if they didn’t treat the males as equally as females? If they just dropped it and said “Oh well”.

    Demigod: Here’s a new tidbit…I had the tv on last night, and OMG! I heard that the police are possibly pursuing a search warrant for Tiger’s medical records from the hospital the night of the “ACCIDENT” to see if his injuries match that of being in a car accident. Dun dun dun…. You would be the FIRST one freaking out that it’s not fair for males, that females get special treatment, if they dropped this. LOL.

    Abuse is not acceptable whether all this is true or not. Bottom line is this is a private matter and we should respect his wishes to figure things out in thier own private way without the media breathing down their throats like animals.

    The media yes…the police, no. Problem for celebs is that the media is always there. The price of fame.

    HHmm private matter eh….why wasn’t the Chris brown issue a “private matter” seems to be a double standard when a women attacks a guy.

    if a lady crashed a car and her husband was swinging a golf club at it to break the “back window to save her” and she refused to answer questions….i gaurantee you it would be a different story then “wait and see”

    Mr. Woods, my prayers are with you and remember God FORGIVES ALL manner of Transgressions. I dont judge a person but like Kobe, KJ, you all put yourselves in a compromising position, and its best to pay them instead of them draggin your name thru the mud. I know NIKE, AMEX, CADILLAC are having meetings on collateral damage control. So I think if you do like Magic Johnson did and face it head-on instead of being like Pres. Bill CLINTON AND DENYING IT, then this crazy society forgives their own and moves on. But when you bold face lie then thats what fuel their inquiring minds to know. But dont feed into it by going into a cubby hole, because you weren’t in one when did what you so called did. Come on T.W. your dad would tell you to face it head on like a game of golf.

    This is just a test and they come to make us stronger.

    But you have to search your heart between you and God to see why would do you what they say, all blackmen do, cheat when you have a beautiful wife.

    God will always HONOR marriage because its His 1st institution He established for man. But you said forsaken all others until death. God has your back but God says in His word, whats done in secret will come to the light and thats for us ministers too. So face it with a 9 iron head-on and this too WILL PASS and your endorsements will stick it out with you if you do that.

    But if you KEEP lying, then Gods word says, PRIDE goes before destruction. T.W. you cant tell me God didnt speak to you on various occasions to STOP THIS? Jesus died for us all and is concerned with our well-being. But as always our own appetites overrules Gods will for our lives and He respects our choices to do whatever. I love you as a sincere Man of God and Ive counseling these situations across the nation. So your faults arent different than those throwing STONES at you, both are wrong and needs FORGIVENESS from Jesus Christ.

    Infact, this would be a good time to find a real spirit-filled church and start attending. The Bible says you overcome evil with good. Now here’s the hard part, negotiate some compensation for those loose lip females to go away immediately with the gag order in place. Yes, its always been about the money. MJ, KOBE could of save allot of collateral damage and endorsements because you are a marketing tool that we all love dearly.

    Please, CONFRONT THIS head-on, pay them and never speak on it again. Start by asking Jesus Christ in your life and His advice on how to deal with this and He will speak to you, I BET MY LIFE ON IT. Give Him God some more of your time, and dont let the devil have any glory in this by you NOT attending any tournaments and being closed off ,and this worldly systems history shows it will blow away. Whats done is done and you cant change it from God perspective. But you can learn from it and move one T.W. with God through this. Its ONLY a test to make us stronger and ONLY the strong survives.

    I got you and your on my churches prayer list. I want you in the Will of God. Address it with your family and bring them to God also, because God holds us men as the head of our house, like your dad was.

    I love you T.W.

    Minister B

    My goodness.
    Does Tiger read these blogs? hmmmm….

  11. Nancy • December 2, 2009 @ 8:31 PM

    Bloody hell! That’s a lot of thumping!

  12. demigod • December 2, 2009 @ 8:56 PM

    Minister BS, I won’t address your religious beliefs/rhetoric as there aren’t enough hours in a day, but I will say your hypocrisy and bias is clear. You’re comparing a jock who admits he’s hiv (from sleeping with 100’s of women) to a US pres. who lied about a bj? In which he didn’t even climax! lol
    You do know T.W, Obama are only half black right?
    Btw, you would just LOVE T.W. to join your church and accept his ‘donations’ wouldn’t you? THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE. lol
