Tiger Woods Online to Swing Away

EA will move forward with an online golf game based on and including Tiger Woods, regardless of recent bad press for the pro golfer. Peter Moore at EA said in his blog:

For the past month, we have watched the Tiger Woods story play itself out while several of his sponsors have stepped away from the golfer.  At EA SPORTS, we’ve been particularly attentive because for the past year, we have been in full development of a new and highly innovative, online golf game.  The game has been in closed beta for eight months, with more than 75,000 people playing and participating.

This decision will no doubt create some attention and further speculation about Tiger Woods, and about his relationship with sponsors...

Our relationship with Tiger has always been rooted in golf...

...But regardless of what’s happening in his personal life, and regardless of his decision to take a personal leave from the sport, Tiger Woods is still one of the greatest athletes in history....

BRAVO EA, Bravo. Every person is entitled to some form of personal life that is kept away from the prying eyes of neighbors, media and more. Whatever Tiger did or did not do in his personal life is exactly that, personal. Provided that it was not criminal or caused serious injury to others. Granted we do not endorse his behavior in regards to extra-marital affairs, but if it were someone not in the public spotlight, would it even be news?
