AT&T Cuts Tiger Woods as Scandal Won

Recommended Posts

Another company dropping Woods, oh well, it had to happen:

Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) -- AT&T Inc. cut ties with Tiger Woods after his admissions of marital infidelity, following at least two other companies in backing away from their endorsements of the world?s top-ranked golfer.

?We are ending our sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods and wish him well,? Michael Coe, a spokesman for the biggest U.S. phone company, said in an e-mail today. AT&T began a multiyear deal in February to place its logo on Woods?s golf bag and has sponsored his annual Tiger Jam benefit concerts.

The carrier?s decision comes two weeks after Accenture Plc and Procter & Gamble Co. began pulling away from Woods, who said this month that he?s taking a leave of absence from golf to work on his marriage. Investors in Woods?s sponsors lost as much as $12 billion after reports of his infidelity, researchers at the University of California at Davis said this week.

Come on, Clinton was leader of one of the biggest countries in the free world, a head of state, Woods is a lowly athelete.

People tend to look up to athletes more than they would a government figure. The longer this continues the less of a chance his reputation and career will recover.

Come on, it's not like he needs anymore money, he's the first billionaire athelete, granted, this is probably why he is under a microscope, being black doesn't help either.

Clinton also involved just one woman. Tiger involves multiple women.

maybe in some parts of the world being black somehow makes cheating worse, but not in Belgium ;)
