o "Yes, and The Herald-Mail taking the time to ask this question is proof."

o "Who cares? What he does in his home is his business. I feel bad for his wife."

o "Who cares how many women Tiger slept with? His wife needs to deal with this issue privately and either work out their differences or break up. I feel sorry for the kids. Just shows you what happens when you have too much money."


o "Of course, they are making too big of a deal about this. I think this is hard enough on Tiger's wife without having to read about this all the time. Amazing how the media never thinks about who they hurt with their sensationalistic news style approach."

o "I have no idea why people make a big deal about this stuff. If it doesn't involve you, why would you care? I could care less what anyone does as long as it does not involve me, my husband or my kids."

o "Yes, this is a common occurrence in our society by celebrities, not an issue the American people need to deal with. He is not holding public office and paying for his female companions with taxpayer money, so it is not important."

o "The Woods story is important to those pathetic Americans who want to hear every little detail. As long as it's bringing in those ratings, we will continue to hear about it."
