Is Tiger Woods Name/Reputation/Marriage Ruined?

As most people were afraid of, the number of women now coming forward to claim to have had extra-marital affairs with Tiger Woods is growing by the day. At last count, there were eight different women who have claimed to have had affairs with Tiger Woods after he was married and there seems to be no end in sight to the embarrassment and shame that Tiger Woods should feel down deep inside for doing this to his family – because of his own human weaknesses. Everyday that new women come forward with stories of having an affair with Tiger Woods is one more day that his major corporate sponsor will be having second thoughts about the money they are pay him for endorsements.

This whole case of Tiger Woods affairs should prove to everyone that age old adage that it is much easier and quicker to destroy something that it is to create it in the first place. We all saw on September 11th, 2001 how quickly the Twin Towers in New York could be brought down by terrorist. Those same two building took over ten years to be planned and constructed, but they fell to the ground within hours of two jets striking them. In that same way, Tiger Woods golf career started back before he even had male hormones – but when all is said and done, the news of his extra-marital affairs over the past two weeks will permanently damage his future - because of some stupid mistakes he made in his personal life.

So goes the saying that, “it's easier to destroy something than it is to create it”. Right now, while there are new bimbo eruptions, almost by the day, claiming that they too have had sex with Tiger Woods over the years while he was married – the people who really follow the careers of the rich and famous like Tiger Woods want to know “is Tiger Woods name, reputation and marriage ruined”. Long ago, I quit trying to figure out what the America people would and would not forgive when it comes to the people they choose to worship – but right now I cannot see a way that Tiger Woods can recover to his former glory, because there are still many old fashion Americans who still believe in family values.

Even in modern day America, family values do carry a bunch of weight with people who fight their urges and stay faithful to the person they married. As we watch Hollywood continue to make fun of people that make the difficult choice to fight their urges and remain faithful to their mate, there are just as many – if not more, Americans that believe there is a positive effect in their life when they make hard choices and do the right thing. From my personal point of view, it will take a long time for me to separate that vision of Tiger Woods on the golf course from the Tiger Woods that abused his family. If others feel the same way, it could predict bad news for future Tiger Woods endorsements.
