I read your post and agree with you entirely that Tiger did (and still does in my opinion) bring magic to this game. And I am a huge fan.
I come to this site to cheer him on good, bad or ugly when he plays. He has had a few good turns and a few bad ones but he is coming back and I will be here when he does.
I don't come here to read about his faults or how badly he is playing or what he "should" be doing. I just look at the facts and any positives and move on to the next tournament and cheer him on again.
This is not a "deep" undertaking for me but it is important to me to be able to cheer him on here with other fans who wish him well, too! It's like going to a Redskins game (been a fan all of my life) and sitting with other fans of the Burgundy and Gold - I don't want to sit with the Cowboy fans!!! Nor do I want to hear them during the game! That's not to say that their points aren't valid or without merit. They are, after all, Cowboy fans!!! :))
Everyone is entitled to their say - in a respectful manner I hope - respectful to the others here and to Tiger - this is, after all HIS site! And there are enough Tiger-bashing sites online that would welcome one more. Plus the media has a field day everyday at his expense.
I think what I am trying to say here is that I understand what you are trying to say. I haven't seen what you've described so I can't and won't speak to it - I'm just putting in my two cents that this place to me is a place to bring my pom poms and my beer or wine or diet coke and spend time on the sidelines with my friends in burgundy and gold each time Tiger tees off and to cheer him on to win! Nothing more! Nothing less!!!
Does this make any sense????
TROLL IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COWARD (and Eye don't mind saying it).
Sorry Kloudy, I will "IGNORE" them in a minute in "Step 3" of my program (LOL) . . .
We all have "screen names" (its how forums are designed) , yet for someone to hide behind a second "secret screen name" as well, is clear evidence of someone running a clandestine operation on this forum, with pure resentment for Tiger Woods, and hatred for all (loyal) Tiger fans. This notion that he/she fears backlash from Tiger fans (just because they disagree) is a lie; and by the way, it happens to all of us.
They are enjoying their new elite celebrity status, in their "witness protection program".
Why should this person have "protection" from others that tend to disagree with their opinions, yet other Tiger fans do not have the same protection? Troll attacks each of us directly, on a daily basis (calling us all by name), and gets the satisfaction of being allowed to get away with it.
I have a VERY GOOD IDEA who this person is, based on the message (behind their message), and I have received emails from others who agree with me. This person (called Troll) has been here for quite some time, and Eye have argured with them many, many times on this board, about their recurring "strategy" of claiming to be a "true Tiger fan, yet can only seem to find fault in him; while constantly praising and defending his ex-wife and other golfers.
This false idea that he/she started this thread to "defend" someone that wants to resign, is ridiculous.
FOR THE RECORD: If anyone here (really) wants to "resign"; then, simply say goodbye and "resign". It is not necessary to "threaten" to resign, and organize a "focus group" about the pending resignation. (LOL). If you are suicidal; then (for God's sake) climb the bridge (in the middle of the night) , and JUMP !!
Under the American Constitution, we are allowed "to face our accusers".
We will not be silenced by "political correctness"; and you will never succeed in stopping us from cheering for (the great) TIGER WOODS!
"NOW, LET THAT SIMMER".
NOW, ASK YOURSELF . . .
Do you really think Eye care about impressing a TROLL?
Don't know about all the other non-involved members of this board, but to me, this thread has become extremely boring with constant belittling of each other and serves no useful purpose, in my opinion.
Therefore, it is closed. I strongly suggest that no one start it up again on another thread because that will lead to immediate banning.
