Tiger Woods has broken his silence and spoken publicly for the first time since the scandal surrounding his private life erupted in November last year. “I was unfaithful, I had affairs, I cheated. What I did was unacceptable.”
Blogs and tweets are talking about what he should and shouldn’t say. Blogger Richard Greener says please don’t apologize when you meet the press on Friday. Tiger Woods owes nothing to those of us who watch him play golf — not a thing. Any private apologies he may have are just that — private. If he wants to say, “I’m sorry” to his wife, why do I have to hear it?
One thing we do know is that he wont be taking questions and has invited a limited number of journalist. The Golf Writers Association of America voted to boycott attending the public statement because they aren’t allowed to ask questions.
What should Tiger Woods say, should he apologise? Why has he waited so long? Is there any point of doing a statement without allowing the press to ask questions?
