Beat, we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. I think Earl Jr is a slimeball and his comment about don't come to us when you need a bone marrow transplant is just an example of how two-faced he is.
Just want to point out that Earl Jr was in attendance at the Masters with his FATHER, who was still alive then. My Dad died last New Year's Day and from the moment he passed away, there are two relatives that I have completely cut out of my life. When Dad was alive, because they were his family, we gritted our teeth and were polite but there's no need anymore to fake it.
I'm sorry Kevin is ill. As you know from previous postings, my sister is completely bedridden with MS and on disability. None of us are rich like Tiger but some of us have helped out on occasion. Others don't feel the need to do so. It's a personal decision based on their own life experiences and relationship with Jean. I would never, ever publicly call them down for their choices. FAMILY doesn't do that.
For Earl Jr to claim family ties and responsibility while trashing Tiger's reputation publicly is pot meet kettle, in my opinion.
In article posted... Cheyenne visited Tiger during her Thanksgiving break.
Also when Tiger won in December she was on twitter congratulating him.
A interview that she gave after she won last year she was saying that Tiger
had given her some pointers that lead to her win.
I believe that they have a closer relationship than with her other family.
Who knows anymore....Tiger just give them some money and if you want a
relationship do so, if not don't.
No one has thought to why Tiger stop talking to them!!!
I have said it before..... There might have been some
tension or an agrument that lead to this... You never
know.. now do you?
Hopefully Kevin will be ok...

I'm sorry to hear about your dad!
However this was your prerogative to not have these people in your life? I believe so...
So why can't Tiger have the same option?
As a TTF, Tiger has the right to interact with his family the way he deemed correct. It is a shame this type of item makes the news around the time of the first major of the year in professional golf. :(
