BREAKING NEWS

Tiger Woods was injured in a serious car crash and had to be extracted from his vehicle, authorities said. The extent of his injuries is unknown.
Tuesday, February 23, 2021 2:50 PM EST

Mr. Woods was removed from the vehicle with a hydraulic spreader tool, often called the “jaws of life,” by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, and he was then taken to a hospital.

PGA had better be making blood sacrifices for his recovery. The NBA has a lot of superstars, but golf only has one Tiger.

A single vehicle accident raises suspicion as to cause.

He already reached stardom so If he survives and can't compete any longer there is always promoting the game and instructing students as well as other professional players. He has had a good share of trials and tribulation.

Deporting a couple million illegals would no doubt help on that front.

He is a pill popper. Very likely he did this to himself and has crippled himself more than his wife did when she found out he was banging the help.

Dude's been through 4(!) back surgeries. Yeah painkiller addiction doesn't seem too unreasonable.

Meh. I think Kobe had more impact. Nothing has impressed me about Tiger Woods. He's like the Williams sisters. Black people are just stronger in their prime versus other races so once you give them the same training rich white people do for these sports, they will dominate.

Kobe had to compete against other black people. He was clearly the better athlete and also a better role model (since that rape thing was a crazy girl anwyays).

it is funny how racist you can be. and how wrong you can be. tiger woods is a huge sports star on par with kobe, perhaps moreso because tiger got golf to be mainstream.

Good argument, no body watches golf, that is why tiger makes so much money.

Whene the last time you watched golf? Who are the top 3 players in the league? Nobody knows because nobody watches golf.

^correct

Other more popular sports are loaded with stars. Golf has few household names so the money is less spread out. It's Tiger and...everyone else. Other sports you see same thing, like Roger Federer.

Kobe had as competition Shaq, Timmy, post-prime Jordan, Dirk, Iverson, Garnett, earlyish LeBron, Wade...whatever, the list goes on.

Brady had just among QBs 2 Mannings, Romo, Big Ben, Rogers, Ryan, Brees, Favre, a bunch of others. That's JUST QBs and I don't even know shit about football.

You dominate a sport (and its headlines) you're going to make tons of money even if nobody watches it.

Speaking of QBs... supposedly tiger was running late to give drew brees golf lessons. So maybe just normal shitty driving rather than impaired.

Golf easily draws more than 200,000 fans to one event. Hard to say nobody watches.

The 2019 Masters had 10.8 million viewers.

Nobody doesn't mean literally nobody.

Yeah, golf draws huge crowds. So does fucking swimming (Olympics). It's nothing like the Big 4 sports, though, overall. In terms of overall viewership and starpower.

Big 4 sports? Football, basketball and ? ? ?

Pretty sure the masters, which is on prime time basic cable channels gets viewers. Its a dumb argument but I'm confident golf is a largely watched sport and tiger is a household name for a reason
