    He drove without shoes on. That's illegal in the state of Florida. Obviously not a serious offense, but if his wife did physically assault him, regardless of why, the police should absolutely investigate this. When Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, the police and the public at large absolutely wanted him prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. IF the same is true here, why should there be a double standard because she's a woman? It was the exact same thing...2 high profile people in a relationship with the person who got clocked and then tried to cover it up. His wife shouldn't get a pass for that if she did it.

    If that chick assaulted Tiger, then she's crazy and she could assault anyone else. The crazies should be locked up. Good on the Police for investigating this further. I hope they unconver the truth.
    Fine. Two more points on his license for driving without shoes. Again if the police want to investigate go at it, but to act like he's just some spoiled celebrity is completely unfair. He's a US Citizen and fortunately the law doesn't act like you're insinuating.

    If he has nothing to hide or something to hide it's his right not to talk to police. I've yet to hear any reason why he should talk to them.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    What's the point with even wondering? it's pretty clear most people have already decided they "know" what happened and nothing Tiger says will change it.

    It's medias job to report on things. When you are one of the the biggest sports star in the world you have to expect things to happen. Tiger is the reason for the rumors getting spread.

    It's the media's job to report news.

    Could Tiger have made this all go away with a press conference? Its a compelling argument until one realizes that its the National Inquirer and TMZ that is being cited as credible sources by the AP and CNN etc...

    Tiger is well within his right to guard his privacy. There is no justification for rumor mongering. People want titillated by poking their noses in other people's business. There is nothing noble about enabling that for a profit.

    The guy plays golf (super-humanly well) and is often criticized for not using his fame to take up social causes. There really isn't even a hypocritical "gotcha" moment here if all of the rumors are true.

    Why have no right to know details about his family and personal life.

    This is gossip column stuff.

    I don't know about that. If Tiger has a more plausible explanation I'd love to hear it. He has a chance to explain it all away and he's chosen not to. Naturally this will lead to speculation.

    This reminds me of Pete Rose who continually delayed his meeting with Bart Giamatti until finally he gave up his meeting altogether in lieu of signing the famous agreement.

    Tiger has every right to refuse to speak to police but such a stance makes it look like he has a lot to hide.

    When the cops get involved, it's no longer gossip column stuff. The reports of him having an affair with that girl are gossip column stuff. When property gets damaged and 911 is called and the police are subpoening for blood records then it's no longer gossip column stuff.

    Yep and when a famous family gives an implausible accounting for a 911 event, it is newsworthy.

    It is not about Tiger's right to not speak nor our right to know. It's news because it interests the public.

    TMZ and the National Enquirer were very accurate on the John Edwards story

    Gossip column stuff has also broke plenty of news stories.

    It's a very minor traffic accident (the characterization of the police) in a gated community and the police report indicates the wreck was not alcohol-related. He has complied fully with his legal obligations to the police to the point he is no longer obligated to interact with them.

    Is his behavior strange and suspicious? Sure, if he was one of us. Is it telling for a person of his public notoriety? Not really. He's obviously guarded his private life very closely as a professional. Anything he says to the police is almost guaranteed to end up twisted into TMZ's efforts to make a profit.

    If he wants his private life to be private...that's his right.

    While it might be understandable that we're curious, gossiping is gossiping.

    If he wants his life to be private then maybe he should get out of being a pro golfer and doing commercials. I think people give tiger more than enough space. When you are making money off your fans the way he does outside of winning golf tournaments you expose yourself to extra scrutiny.

    Saying buy Nike stuff because I use it on the golf course opens one up to extra scrutiny?

    TMZ will get a lot more mileage out of this if Tiger lets it fester.

    Yes. You endorsing a product and telling people to buy it is built on trust. If your private image isnt what is perceived people would want to know. Hiding the negatives annoys people who support you and it opens yourself up to them wanting to know.

    It's still a traffic accident whether it took place on the Interstate or a gated community. There is a suspicion of domestic violence. That's not gossip.
