:huh:

Hope it was worth it, Bubba. For that amount of cheddar, he should have been kickin' it with Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Zoe Saldana, Salma Hayak, Jessica Biel, Barker's Beauties, every Laker Girl (simultaneously), etc. instead of the Paula Jones wannabees he was banging.

A sad day for caublinasians everywhere.

Just another example of what is wrong with our legal system. What on Earth has Elin done that is worth 750 million dollars? Family law is so weighted against men it almost seems that it should trigger some sort of equal protection issue. Simply disgusting.

IMO it's not an example of anything wrong with our legal system. This was a settlement reached in mutual agreement between two people. This wasn''t ordered by a court, it was simply Tiger Woods paying out money in order to control the story and keep more lurid details away from media outlets.

When I checked the news on Google I followed a link to the Boston Herald website which had a story about the settlement. While reading the story I noticed this quote:

Emerson College communications professor Gregory Payne called the hush money disgusting, saying its an egotistical tactic by Woods.

I would take the money and find some loophole and expose him, Payne said. Why is he so paranoid that his wife is going to give her perspective

I don't particularly care what the agreement between Woods and his wife is. And generally I really don't care much about someone elses opinion of the situation either. But I decided to write an email to the person quoted, mainly because the story mentions that the person quoted is a professor. I don't know what caused me to do that, but for some reason that quote just stood out to me. Below is a copy of the email I sent to him which makes me sound like a real tightazz, I'm pretty sure. :lol:

Professor Payne;

I am certainly not a Tiger Woods apologist, however a quote attributed to you on the website of the Boston Herald really gave me pause. According to the article, you indicated that were you Elin Nordegren you would sign the paperwork for the divorce settlement and then make an attempt to circumnavigate the agreement in an effort to expose Tiger Woods. I do not understand why you would espouse such an unprofessional opinion. If two adults willingly reach an agreement in which they define what is acceptable behavior going forward, then they are honor bound to live by that agreement. If the agreement is in the form of an enforceable contract not only are they honor bound, they are legally bound as well, as I am sure you understand.

By breaking such an agreement immediately after entering into it not only would you wrong the other party to the contract, but you would also dishonor your self. Doing such a thing would not only affect the other party, it would make you less decent as well. I personally hope that the soon to be ex "Mrs. Tiger Woods" holds herself to a higher standard than you seem too. Doing so would allow her to show her children how to maintain honor in an ugly situation. By stating your willingness to break such an agreement you have basically told your students that it is acceptable to break your word and give up your honor if it suits your needs.

As a faculty member you should try to set a positive example for your students. In this instance you showed them nothing of the sort. It is well known around the globe that Tiger Woods was an atrocious example of a husband. He created a situation which will most certainly cause his children heartache and shame. Ms. Nordegren should honor her word and not make public statements that would further expose her children to further embarrassment and ridicule. You should help teach your students the same type of honor Elin Nordegren is intent on displaying. You should not state, in a public record, your willingness to climb into the gutter in order to seek vengeance.

I do not mean to over-inflate the gravity of this situation. Overall, your statements likely reflect the opinions of a significant portion of the population. That being said, I still believe that your words provided a negative example for the students who look up to you and seek your instruction.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that---750 million?---is he really worth more than that? And the other statement "he can't bring any of his girlfriends around the the children. Why would Elin insist on that after she just hit the lottery. I mean he is so afraid of any further public damage that he has caved in and been hijacked and he isn't allowed to expose his children to his upcoming ho parade. What is she afraid of? or is she just a bit jealous. The kids will grow up and learn what daddy did eventually. Besides she can afford the best therapist.

Boy Tiger is a generous guy...paying all that money in spite of having a pre-nup.

She must have some career threatening dirt

I think it isn't as much career ending dirt as it is he needs to begin the repairing of his image by playing golf and eventually winning again and if he is going through a nasty divorce it will not only affect his game but his image. Lets face it most of this 750 million came from sponsors like Nike and this is where he hopes to repair his image the most. He does care a little about the "fans" but he mostly cares about his future image in that he could get sponsors again (other than Nike).

Are there any good section 8 apts available in the Orlando area?

Poor Elin

TMZ is reporting that he worth 600 million---so she aint getting 700 million. There is a prenup, but he wants this to go away so bad he is going to cough up my guess is 300 million, his kids, and the 2.5 million dollar home in Winderemere

AND SHE GOT TO HIT HIM IN THE FACE WITH A GOLF CLUB!!!!

Assaults one of the most famous men in the country with a potentially deadly weapon and never even gets question by authorities.

She comes to this country as a maid and leaves as one of the wealthiest women.

Only in America.

I agree with your point of view---no one has ever said why Tiger strayed. Was it his deviant behavior or maybe she is a prude and he was caught in a no-sex marriage with cameras on his every move always being the golf icon.

So F'ing what if he scewed a bunch of women. Good for him. Those kids will have millions and she gets way more than she could have imagined. He will look back on his many trist one day and say it was worth it, the media and these victorian morals about sleeping with one women for life and being ashamed of our bodies have had way too much influence on our lives!

I hope she moves back to Switzerland or where ever she comes from

it's pretty apparent that he is a deviant. 1 or 2 girls and maybe there is something wrong at home. more then a dozen and it's time for him to look in the mirror.

how many other people have you slept with in your life? Now suppose you had so much money and fame you could have anyone you wanted? Your telling me that you wouldn't make that mistake? Ok so 20 is a big number but it is completely understandible to me.
