    Exactly.

    Tiger played awesome and I want to congratulate him...

    But I'm getting sick and tired of all this sympathy for his dad. I'm sure he was a great guy, but enough is enough. Other people in this world lose their fathers each day, and we don't hear about it.

    Yes, it's tragic for Tiger and his family that he lost his father, but his father wasn't any more special than my father, or anyone elses...
    Let me ask you this: did you find what Brett Favre did the day after his father died special? This is on par with that performance.
    I admire what Favre did when his father died, and I admire Tiger's performance. But millions of people have to go back to work after their fathers die every week. So my question is why don't we hear about them? Yes, it's sad that his father died, but what makes Tiger's father more important than anyone elses?...That's my point...

    My friend had to go back to school and hold a steady job after his father died last year. He helped pay the bills and keep his family afloat while maintaining very good grades. I find that to be special...

    I'm not trying to be a prick here, I'm just asking why every question from the media to Tiger was about his emotions after he won. Athletes are entertainers, we can go on in society without them. But we can't go on without Firefighters, Policemen, and people like that. And the fathers of these people die each year....

    When a Firefighter saves a person from a burning building, or when a Policemen catches a killer, I find that to be more special than an athlete winning the British Open.
    Your point is well-respected and everyone should know what you are getting at. I think everyone on here would agree that any person losing their Father is a terrible thing and we all sympathize with them. The main reason why this is such a huge deal in the world of sports is that Tiger could very well be the most famous athelete in the world(not sure if he is but he's up there) and him and his father always had a very strong bond that the public has seen for years and years. So when Earl died, it was bound to be a big story. Nothing against the other fathers in the world who have passed on.
    Regardless of whether he's "the most famous athlete in the world." Enough is enough about it. Ok, it's fine that they mention his father dying but every media question after he won on Sunday was about his dad and his emotions. Again I don't mean to sound like a dick, because it's not how I want to get my point accross. But Tiger is an athlete, not a Policeman or a Soldier. He's an entertainer....But I do understand your point and I respect what you're getting at as well..

    Tiger is a great golfer and one of the most dominant athletes in their respective sports, but it's almost like it's being force fed down our throats at times.

    Tiger still has at least 5 years. After he's done, he will be the best. Easily.
    umm he has more like 20 yrs.... you have to be 50 to join the senior pga tour.... not to mention he can still play in majors afterhes done on the pga tour. so i see him easily winning 20+ majors because the prime of the golf game comes in the 30's. jack won more than half of his majors in his thirtys and tiger will do the same. so i say tiger ends up with 27 majors.

    On one hand I do sympathize that Tiger lost his father, but then I realize that he's making millions upon millions of dollars a year while playing the game he loves....

    I envy him for the money he makes and the occupation he has more than I sympathize with him....

    Kind of hard to compare but I'll take Tiger by the end of his career.

    He was 40 years old gimme a break. He was dominate throughout his prime, something Tiger hasnt been.
    That's sort of why I said "despite his age"...

    But your problem is that you're overlapping the sports when they really can't be compared that way. "Dominant" in golf and basketball are entirely different, though you're treating them as the same thing.
