It’s all good yall Tiger Woods yall!!!

Yet again another celebrity/athlete has shown us why we shouldn’t look up to them as role models. By now everyone has already heard about the escapades of Tiger Woods so I pose this question to you. Does anyone buy celebrity/athlete endorsed products simply because of the athlete? I personally could care less about a celebrity endorsement.  I know what your thinking right now, “isn’t this a gaming website?” Yes, yes it is. I was getting to that, hold your horses people. With all the endorsements that Tiger Woods has lost there is still a few that still have stuck around. EA has released a statement that basically says we chose Tiger Woods for his golfing ability and not his personal life. Meaning even though his life is a circus right now, he is still the best golfer in the world. I play Tiger Woods golf because its a great game not because of Tiger Woods. 2 things I wonder and maybe you can help. 1 will some people not buy the game simply because it has Tiger Woods attached to it? 2 would the game be as popular if it was just EA Golf 2010 and Tiger Woods was just one of many golfers? That is just food for thought people, eat up.

    I think everyone is victim to buying things because of a celebrity or even just because of the brand name. So does the game have half naked women throwing themselves at him while he is trying to golf? I would play it then.

    You have some very valid points, but I wonder if you would have even been interested in playing the game if it wasn’t “Tiger” and just some random guy the was on the cover of the game? I would have to think that “Tiger” being on the cover and it being his game would have to make it stand out a little more than the others and sway you just a little…..lol. I think he messed up big time but at the end of the day he gets paid to golf he is at the top of his game and is still the best flaws and all.

      I would say that at the end of the day having Tiger on the cover made me pay more attention to it, but it was the game itself that makes me wanna play it. But still a good point.
