Portis chimes in on Tiger Woods

Two years ago, Redskins running back Clinton Portis waded into the Mike Vick fiasco with some controversial comments supporting Vick’s ability to fight dogs.

Now, Portis is wading into the Tiger Woods affair.

Or, more accurately, affairs.

“Well, I think he’s being treated unfair,” Portis said during his weekly appearance on ESPN 980′s John Thompson Show, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.  “Honestly, I always felt like everybody in that position — whether you’re a reporter, whether you run a grocery store, whether you’re the guy who’s doing an endorsement with Tiger — I’m sure in their offices the same thing’s going on.  I’m sure they’ve got a lot of hidden secrets, a lot of hidden secret admirers, women that they talk to and everything else.  But as an athlete, you’re put under a microscope and everybody wants you to be perfect.  You just can’t have nothing else going on. 

“And I think for so long, Tiger’s image was that of just a perfect person.  Nobody wanted to see [anything else].  Now all of the sudden, you go from loving this man that you admired for all these years, and you find out he has a side woman and all of the sudden you hate him?  You know, he’s still the same man that you grew to love.  I mean, he kept it on wraps.  For any man to be able to keep that on wrap for that long, to keep his business [private].  I’m sure this wasn’t the first time his wife found out he was probably with somebody else, but it was always hidden, it wasn’t in the public eye, it wasn’t pressure for her to leave him, there wasn’t pressure to ruin their home.  I’m sure they got into it before. I doubt that this is the first time she picked up his phone and seen another woman had called him.”

Holy crap.  Could it be that the concussion has made Portis smarter?

Then again. . . .

“If he could keep that a secret and ain’t nobody came out and told [on him], hey, congratulate him,” Portis said.  “You know, most of the time there’s one or two, and you can’t keep that a secret.  So if he can balance 14 and keep it a secret, congrats.  You know, at least he knows what he wants.  He don’t discriminate, he’s not against people, he don’t care what your job, what your background is. . . .  He knew what he was after.”

Of course, Tiger ultimately failed to keep it a secret.  Just like Vick.

    Man, that was absolutely hysterical. Thank you, oh sage one….

  2. downwithdansnyder says: Dec 15, 2009 6:40 PM

    WHAT? I’m a ‘Skins fan, but Portis should shut his pie hole.
    “You know, he’s still the same man that you grew to love. I mean, he kept it on wraps.”
    Really? NO, Tiger is not the same man I thought he was. Far far from it. I agree the spotlight is unfairly bright, but when you make bank off of said spot light then you get what you deserve. Hold yourself out as perfect, well you better be perfect. He’s not a man. He’s a Narcissistic a-hole.

    The John Thompson show should be nationally syndicated radio

  4. chapnasty says: Dec 15, 2009 6:41 PM

    WOW… As if we needed anymore evidence of how insanley retarded Clinton Portis was. If anyone thinks having an affair is acceptable than it clearly shows the decay of our culture and society. It is a sad day to think that this is what we have come to. Such a decay in the appreciation for family and structure in one’s life. Tiger has children and just because he is good at a sport doesn’t mean he can be excused for being a scumbag, a worthless father and husband. Clinton retire and shut your mouth.

  6. leatherneck says: Dec 15, 2009 6:42 PM

    A “side woman?”
    That’s like describing the national debt as a non-crisis.

  7. Occam says: Dec 15, 2009 6:48 PM

    Now who can argue with that? I think we’re all indebt to Gabby Johnson for stating what needed to be said. I am particulary glad that these lovely children are here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed the courage little seen in this day and age.

  8. JimmySmith says: Dec 15, 2009 6:48 PM

    Let’s see if I can translate that into English, Portis admires Tiger’s ability to cheat and cheat with a lot of women. However, making a $100 million in endorsements should not be considered in your evaluation on whether the media is treating Tiger fairly because, hey, everyone is doing it.
    That guy is so stupid it makes my head hurt.

  9. nfcbeast says: Dec 15, 2009 6:49 PM

    So Portis is giving Tiger props on his ability to commit and cover up adultery….another great role model in the NFL.

  10. TFBuckFutter says: Dec 15, 2009 6:50 PM

    “Now all of the sudden, you go from loving this man that you admired for all these years, and you find out he has a side woman and all of the sudden you hate him? You know, he’s still the same man that you grew to love.”
    So we should feel the same way about the guy if, instead of women, he was banging 10 year old boys?
    Celebrities make their money in the public eye. Tiger has probably only made 10% of his money from actually playing golf. I don’t blame any company for not wanting his (or any other public figure’s) behavior to damage the company’s image.
    If you’re going to make a billion dollars being in the public eye, don’t bitch about it when you mess up and then suddenly want your privacy.

  11. jamaicamecrazy says: Dec 15, 2009 6:50 PM

    “So if he can balance 14 and keep it a secret, congrats”
    Oh how stupid all of us are. We have it all wrong!
    When a married man with two small children has unprotected sex with at least 14 other women we should congtatulate him!
    Let’s all join Clinton Portis and send Tiger a text message congratulating him and apologize to Tiger for thinking he was wrong for hurting his family.

  12. JimmyY says: Dec 15, 2009 6:52 PM

    Honestly, this guy went to college? Its a matter of degree when you’re getting paid millions of dollars to endorse products that portray a certain image than the guy in the office. Too bad, you want that lifestyle it comes with attachments that’s the difference idiot. Honestly, this guy has got to be one of the stupidest individuals I’ve ever heard speak. God, what a dummy.

  13. Hedley Lamarr says: Dec 15, 2009 6:53 PM

    “I mean, he kept it on wraps. For any man to be able to keep that on wrap for that long, to keep his business [private].”
    Hopefully, he ‘kept it on wraps’ … or there might be some child support payments around the corner as well.

  14. bills9951 says: Dec 15, 2009 6:54 PM

    lmao, one of the best blogs EVER on this site. i agree with portis on everything. his opinion on the vick situation however was a disaster

  15. Backinthesaddle says: Dec 15, 2009 6:56 PM

    Yeah….getting married and then banging dozens of Ho’s behind wifey’s back is fine & dandy in the world of Clinton Portis. It just goes to show the values, or more accurately, the lack thereof, that some of these turds were raised with.

  16. chugs says: Dec 15, 2009 6:56 PM

    hey downwithdan:
    Tiger’s been in the spotlight, every move basically evaluated & scrutinized since he was what, 7?
    There has to be a part of everyone that develops independently & kept under wraps or else there’s no sense of independence, no sense of individuality….
    So Tiger developed a need to keep the lights on & pull waitresses & hookers & playmates hair off from behind as he smacked them on the fanny.
    Just another child star gone wrong, & I don’t see anyone climbing down Donnie Osmond’s backside.

  17. CanadianVikingFan says: Dec 15, 2009 6:56 PM

    LMAO “side woman” thats awesome..
    ” So if he can balance 14 and keep it a secret, congrats.”
    These two lines by far made me laugh the most. Clinton Portis, you are a champ.

  18. Osterhouse says: Dec 15, 2009 6:57 PM

    “If he could keep that a secret and ain’t nobody came out and told [on him], hey, congratulate him,” Portis said. “You know, most of the time there’s one or two, and you can’t keep that a secret.

  19. ocpaperboy says: Dec 15, 2009 6:57 PM

    Tiger don’t discriminate. He like them all. Hos, models, porn stars, they all can be a side woman …. hahahahahahahahaha! Nice one, Portis.

  20. SuzyKolberIsAwesome says: Dec 15, 2009 6:58 PM

    JEEZ… his LOGIC makes my head spin, it makes me wonder what he majored in, in college??? They must be so proud of him, at the U!!!

  21. Indyeagle says: Dec 15, 2009 6:59 PM

    Wow! Clinton Portis’ attitude is a perfect example of the non-existence of morals in today’s world. He’s not saying we should forgive Tiger, he’s saying we should admire him? Congratulate him? Oh, by the way Clinton, Tiger is NOT the same man that we grew to love. We love our athletes because of what we know about them and what they stand for. We fall out of love when we find out that they have the moral fiber of a chimp. I’d be interested to hear Brian Dawkins or Kurt Warner’s take on this whole thing. Do you think their take would be similar to Portis?

  22. Asswipe Johnson (Pronounced Az-Wee-Pay) says: Dec 15, 2009 7:03 PM

    This writeup needs a Tiger Woods reenactment, Florio.

    If nobody thought infidelity was okay, nobody would be doing it. That just doesn’t stack up. Save it for Bible study & snuggle time. You don’t have to give us your honey bunches speel here, you don’t need our permission to go out with the boys tonight.

  24. bigrig says: Dec 15, 2009 7:08 PM

    Just when Tiger thought it couldn’t get any worse, now he’s got Bro Sweets defending his behavior.
    What do you think Tiger would be doing right now if he had found out Elin had been with over a dozen different women? Do you think Bro Sweets might have a different viewpoint?

  25. bearsrule says: Dec 15, 2009 7:08 PM

    A really good advertisement for the University of Miami. I bet he wasn’t an English major.

  26. StevieMo says: Dec 15, 2009 7:08 PM

    The U certainly turns out its share of rocket scientists. I won’t mention any other names but a few other Univ. of Miami illiterates have “talked just as dumb” on the airwaves.
    Methinks there’s not a huge premium on going to class at Miami, and the players are likely given answers to tests ahead of time, as has been common at certain schools for decades.

  27. gameunleashed says: Dec 15, 2009 7:09 PM

    one thing thats lost in this world is the ability to keep it real.thats what portis is doing. lets be frank marriage doesnt mean squat these days. now everybody wants to condemn tiger because hes doing what 75% of married couples are doing? surprize… he’s human. noone else out there has cheated on his wife/girlfriend?we have all come to love tiger for playing golf…if you think people who make it big are role models than your sadly mistaken. the general public acts like he killed someone… OMG tiger cheated… i bet u or ur dad did too and werent ostracized for it like he did. this is between tiger and his wife…if he wasnt the #1 golfer in the world it would’ve stayed in house and we still would’ve been able to see this phenom play golf? what if YOUR PERSONAL SECRETS were scrutinized by the public … think about that for a minute. peace

  28. KingKunal says: Dec 15, 2009 7:12 PM

    Clinton Portis is a Class A Idiot. Has anyone heard Chris Johnson talk? When he speaks, we all get a little dumber by listening to him. But that’s just the edumacation that Johnson received. Portis on the other hand is just a moron. remember when he came to the defense of Michael Vick?

  29. StevieMo says: Dec 15, 2009 7:16 PM

  31. stiller43 says: Dec 15, 2009 7:26 PM

    This guy’s an idiot. If you want your public image to make you a ton of money, (with his own brand, his name on video games, other endorsements, etc.) then you better make damn sure your true image can go public without doing any damage.

  32. Quagmire says: Dec 15, 2009 7:27 PM

    Another example of quality Miami edumication.

    Peyton set Vick up… He’s the mastermind behind the dogfighting ring…. Peyton’s a G. He felt the heat getting turnt up and threw it off on vick. Know damn well Peyton keeps two desert eagles, and is involved in the countries largest money laundering and prostitution ring!!! HAHAH

  34. Terry says: Dec 15, 2009 7:32 PM

    Another idiot heard from; NEXT!

  35. Phenom says: Dec 15, 2009 7:33 PM

    Portis certainly sounds like an idiot with these comments. He not only is condoning what Tiger did but giving him props for it. BTW, Portis, if you are reading this (I’ll give it a .01% chance) it is “under wraps”, not “on wraps”.

  36. DcNinerFan says: Dec 15, 2009 7:34 PM

    Yeah, poor Tiger Woods. He has compulsive adultery syndrome, or something. Back off the man, will ya? He’s just cheating on his wife (and all this mistresses). Plus giving his children wonderful opportunities to be picked on at school and develop psychoses. What’s wrong with that?
    Portis should a) shut up, b) take a course on ethics, and c) shut up.
    And people wonder where the stereo types of black men and infidelity come from? Portis should stop listening to Jesse Jackson, and listen to Bill Cosby once in a while. He’s got it right.

  37. LeeB says: Dec 15, 2009 7:34 PM

    Eloquent he is not. But I don’t see this as a defense of TW. But he is saying that many have joined in the Tiger feeding frenzy and are piling it on, willing to believe anything about this man when they themselves are guilty of their own transgression. We don’t know about them because many are not TW and don’t have his money and fortune.
    How many women are there. Well, how about if 50 chicks from the Orlando area hop in and 75 from Vegas. It’s the thing to do. I knew the drug angle was going to get worse after Ambien and Vicodin. I am waiting for the male whore to join in.
    Initially I thought TW was ill advised by keeping silent. Now I know he should not respond to any additional accusations that come along.
    TW blew his career and life. He is an imbecile, was wrong and is paying a price. Others are profiting from this self induced wound. But I hope he soon learns to say “I am playing golf and you can all Kiss my cablianasina ass.”

  38. chapnasty says: Dec 15, 2009 7:48 PM

    @ chugs
    The problem is that people think cheating on your spouse is ok you moron. I don’t know what a bible has to do with it. I think it is being a good human being to be faithful to your wife and family. Apparently you have some skeletons in your closet? Scumbags like Portis, Woods and you are ruining our children. We’d be much better off without people like you.

  39. tomatl says: Dec 15, 2009 7:49 PM

    Here’s another example of Florio’s hard on for the Redskins..
    If any of you LISTENED to the interview on the John Thompson Show you would have heard that it was a off the cuff conversation. Portis along with the John and Doc were laughing about it and having fun with it. Just like you and 99% of guys are doing out there right now.
    But where would be the fun in that? Florio wouldn’t have anything to write about and all you would have nothing to bash Portis about.

  40. Patdaddy15 says: Dec 15, 2009 7:51 PM

    …typical comments from the subculture…sadly, I feel that the majority of educated, married black males would disapprove of such comments…so it’s not a “so black” thing.

  41. Gautam says: Dec 15, 2009 7:52 PM

    I want to see the video … there is a difference in reading this transcript and seeing how he said it
    knowing Portis & him wanting to joke regularly(despite some of the jokes being really stupid), I wouldn’t be surprised if he was just having a good time at Tiger’s expense

  42. runningamuck says: Dec 15, 2009 7:58 PM

    Obviously, when they were passing out brains, Portis was in English class, and not doing to well.
    ” ain’t nobody came out ”
    “He don’t discriminate”
    “a side woman “.
    Dude, if your going to try and speak articulately, learn the English language first would you !
    You speak as if you were aborted at birth…and lived !

  43. runningamuck says: Dec 15, 2009 7:59 PM

    tiger never portrayed himself to be perfect the public and advertiser’s portrayed him to be that way! as a human beings we are ALL fallable! a lot of the same people throwing shit at him now have done worst………ie child abuse, incest, domestic violence just to name a couple of things! the moral of this posting is don’t “go raking leaves somewhere else when you haven’t raked your own”

  45. Cushing Will Kill You says: Dec 15, 2009 8:06 PM

    I just heard on the radio that Clinton Portis was Tiger’s 13th mistress.

  46. MH says: Dec 15, 2009 8:11 PM

    It’s embarrassing to think Portis was a member of the Broncos. Between his comments on Vick and his comments on Woods, it seems well established that he’s not only a documented idiot but a complete scumbag punk. I hope he retires so I never have to hear or see he’s uneducated ass again. Maybe he can hang out the pacman at the “scrip club,” it seems those two are a perfectly matched bromance.

  47. CanadianVikingFan says: Dec 15, 2009 8:13 PM

    Looks like we have found ourselves an asshole prejudice bigot in Osterhouse. What are you a Nazi?

  48. Bob In Pacifica says: Dec 15, 2009 8:13 PM

    Portis is right. Most men in the same position, rich, handsome, popular, with women throwing themselves at him, would be tempted, and a hell of a lot of men in that position would do the same as Woods.
    I’ve heard a lot of guys bragging about doing the same thing, and I’ve heard about a lot of others who’ve been caught. Politicians, bankers, CEOs, traveling salesmen, down to players in the neighborhood.
    Most of us don’t have the opportunity to do the same, but no one gets a medal for not doing what you don’t get a chance to do.
    I’m not shocked and I don’t really care. Might as well be talking about the dalliances of Jon and Kate.

    Countless celebrities have gone through this, Kobe did it, nobody cared. Magic Johnson did it, got HIV and is still considered a hero. Elvis did it, and he’s and American icon. Steve McNair did it, not only did it get him killed but he was laid to rest as a football hero and all was forgotten. As long as there are athletes and celebrities, there will be Poon-tang in front of their faces everyday. We all know this is a way of life for them, and we have to realize that they live a totally different life than us 9 – 5ers. Whether the celebrity is married or not, having 5 – 10 women offering up their body on a daily basis to you must get pretty old “NOT”. Who cares if there was 1 or 20 girls. Get over it, it is not our problem. In a year he will be at the top of his game and we will all be cheering him on.

    Seems like everyone wants to put a famous person on a pedestal. Nobody knows the real person, they just know he can do something so amazing that they can’t.
    You drink the endorsement kool-aid and pretend you are him and mimic his evry talented move. But the only thing you REALLY know about this person is what is fed to you via endorsements and media coverage. You really have no idea what this person is away from that. But your life is so pathetic that you wish you were him and place him high above you by calling him a role model, “I wanna be like him.”
    He can play golf, or football, or be a politician. Then when that person does something you don’t agree with, you call him a bad role model and now he is below you. You are better than him. He sucks.
    Good lord, get over yourselves.
    If you have to look at sports figures as your role model then you are an idiot. If you are trying to pull the “bad role models for kids” card then you are an even bigger idiot.
    Think for yourself people. Most of you have a brain and can do that. I don’t need to use a product because some sports person uses it. I use a product because I want to, because I like it.
    I don’t allow another person to influence my actions or decisions because they play a childs game and get paid for it. My actions are based off of my needs and logical thought process.
    For all I care they can all be having wild orgies with monkeys before the game. Just come out and entertain me for a while and then I will go back to living my life…which evolves orgies with monkeys on a weekly basis. I mean, why not?

  52. cobainlennon says: Dec 15, 2009 8:33 PM

    Clinton Portis is excactley right. It’s none of your business what Tiger does on his personal life. I don’t want to hear is this what our society is coming too. Give me a break. This is what our society has always been. We just haven’t always had TMZ giving updates every 30 seconds. Martin Luther King Jr cheated on his wife. Where were all you upset family men two months ago screaming about him. It’s just like Chris Rock said you’re only as faithful as your options. So for all you bald fat old married men that try and take the high road because you never cheated on your wife. It’s because no one else would have you!!!! Chapnasty I’m talking mainly to you.

    Clinton Portis majored in Football at “The U”. And he worked a lot hard at it than any of us did in whatever we majored in, at whatever school we attended. This also put him in position to make A LOT more money than any of us as well.
    So while you make your little rocket science quib, take a moment to realize not only did Portis and other players from the U, go to school for a specific purpose, they then got high paying jobs in the very competitive field which they studied.
    Awesome, your grammar maybe better when you leave your annonymous post on this website, which btw is dedicated to our nation’s obsession with these peoples occupation, but the fact of the matter is Clinton Portis and other NFL players have accomplished what you could never do. And not only don’t they need the piece of paper which you use to validate your life, but they didn’t fall into debt from the student loans it took to get that piece of paper either. So suck it you self righteous nobodies.
    Now as for Tiger and his alleged infidelity, it’s pretty easy for all of us to judge him, because none of these sillies want to F*ck us. He’s a freaking golfer, not an elected offical, get the f*ck over it.
    Since we’re getting all moral here on PFT, how’s about we walk a mile in some of these people’s shoes. Oh wait, none of us are talented enough in anything to do that.

  55. Hauschild says: Dec 15, 2009 8:43 PM

    Wow – the only man with a set of stones to call Tiger on this repulsive behavior was Jesper Parnevik.
    At least there are a few civilized people left on this earth. What ever happened to shame? I’ll bet 50% of people under 40 years of age have no idea what it means.

    Was that the lastest Post Concussion Cognitive Test?! Portis should retire. He’s had one shot too many on the sophistry portion of his cranium. I heard Tiger was going to change his name to Cheetah?!

  59. sdffa11 says: Dec 15, 2009 8:59 PM

    another infamous quote from portis to show what an idiot he is.
    the world doesnt hate tiger woods because he was messing around with 14+ different women. TIGER WOODS IS MARRIED. if tiger really wanted to hook up with all the other hos, he should have divorced his wife. just because other people cheat on their spouses in the real world doesn’t make what tiger did right. besides its f’ed up that all of tiger’s mistresses are all much uglier than his gorgeous wife…that alone is a crime in itself. cheating on a spouse might not be a crime but it’s not going to win you point in the PR department either.

    I don’t feel bad for his wife one bit. For the simple reason this wasn’t his highschool sweetheart that he cheated on. This isn’t a woman that has been with him through it all and helped him make himself who he is. She’s a woman that married an already world famous Tiger with hundreds of millions of dollars. She wouldn’t have married Tiger the mailman or Tiger the shoe salesman. So I don’t feel the least bit sad that he cheated on her. I’m sure if he was broke tomorrow. She would be out like trout in a drought.

    “He don’t discriminate, he’s not against people, he don’t care what your job, what your background is. . . . ”
    Say what?
    I guess that is true unless you’re blond and white (and female). But this saga isn’t over. I suspect the ‘love children’ will start popping up very soon. Maybe in time for Christmas!
    If I were Tiger, I would pay off Elin, get the divorce, change his name to ‘Tony’, do a *Michael Jackson* face lift and go on …
    A new start, indeed, but Jack’s record still bekon’s.

    If Tiger had one or two mistresses, he would catch flak but probably wouldn’t lose sponsors.
    8, 9 or however many just shows he was trying to run a harem.
    He would be congratulated if he wasn’t married.

    Newark, New Jersey, school kids heard Tuesday from an expert, Michael Vick himself, on why dogfighting is bad.
    Raising and training pit bulls on his rural Virginia home got Vick booted out of the NFL for two years straight, landing him straight into the federal pen at Leavenworth.
    “I wish I could have a dog right now more than anything in the world,” Vick admitted while acknowledging that his judge has banned him from owning dogs after a lifetime spent with the animals.
    “My goal now is to help more animals than I hurt and help turn a negative situation in a positive,” he added.

    But anyway, as far as judging Tiger, no one here is, they are just expressing their opinions of him. That is allowed, right?
    And my opinion is his wife looks a hundred times better than any of the gutter crawlies he is said to have been with. So in my humble opinion, he’s an idiot for downgrading. At the very least. You seen the hoghead on that one blonde? Lawd.

    BigUnit : I’m referring to the fact that Cosby stood up to the “black community” and chastised them severely for allowing young black men and women to cheat on each other, have unprotected sex, have children out of wedlock and underage, and basically buy into the stereotypes. He was criticized (putting it lightly) by the “leaders” of the “black community” (Sharpton, Cummings) for what he said. He spoke the truth.
    He might do these things himself, you are correct in that I don’t know, but the fact that he actually said what he said tells me he probably hasn’t. But who knows, he might have succumbed to the stereotype himself. Wouldn’t that be ironic?

  82. Mean D says: Dec 15, 2009 11:32 PM

    As a Florida grad, I happen to know that Portis had a scholarship to go to UF. But he caused so much trouble and got in fights at Gainesville High School that UF yanked the scholarship and several other regional universities refused to take him. But when you are a total f’up and no major school will take you, you always know you can find a home a U of Miami. And being able to speak is not a requirement.

  83. lookehear says: Dec 15, 2009 11:51 PM

    Look…no need beating up on Clinton. Like in the great words of Forest Gump, “…stupid is as stupid does.” Simply put, ol’ Clinton is just being himself.
    As for Mr. Woods, much has been said about his image, and presumed responsibility he has to everyone. Frankly, the only person he needs to anwer to is Elin. He caused her unspeakable pain, international humiliation AND put her health at risk. We made a choice to have an affair. But he also made a choice to use his “family man persona” to promote himself and products. This is in no way like Kobe, Dr. J., or even Magic…none of these athletes pushed their families in the forefront of their careers. We know they have families, but it was never a part of any product marketing design or branding. But it was for Tiger and that’s why people feel betrayed. Soon, more sponsors will pull out of sponsoring him. One, even two affairs is not a huge deal. Tiger is a serial cheater. And worse yet, he paid women to stay quiet…why…because he knew life as he knew it would be over.
    As soon as people stop being so surprised by the actions of the Tiger’s of the world, we won’t be spending so much time online writing about it.

    I beg you please add Portis to the PFT writing staff. I would love to read the words of wisdom Portis has to share throughout the entire season. He may never be in on the joke but this guy is a gold mine.

    I like Clinton’s use of “keep it on wrap”.

  87. Real Football Fan says: Dec 16, 2009 6:26 AM

    Let’s get real. This nonsense is only news because people, like little children, are looking up to another man. I fail to see how his morals affect mine since I’m an adult. Furthermore, I fail to see how any public figure’s morals affect anyone, even children if their parents aredoing their jobs.
    The simplicity of this case is that people like to be fooled rather than know the truth. I read some of these comments about how he pulled the wool over your eyes, which couldn’t be further from the truth because he never said anything of substance. Woods was straight out of the Michael Jordan book of public life. Stay in the middle on any subject, no stances, don’t give the media any reason to scrutinize you….the public will fill in the blanks for you of who they want you to be in that case because they want to, they want to have heroes. It’s almost as pathetic as women swooning over gay men like Rock Hudson right up until the deathbed admissions of their real preferences, although it’s quite obvious from my perspective.
    It’s all hilarious that grown men are outraged at the actions of another grown man., and you can’t hide behind the “Woods is a role model” argument that peppers the other sports when individuals’ morals come up because I don’t see many kids tuning into those golf matches. STop putting other men on pedestals because it’s quite sickening.
    Oh, and for those people talking about the endorsements being because he sold you an image, you really don’t know how business works so stop commenting so that you don’t look dumber than you already do. He got so many endorsements because not only was he the best in that lame sport, but he didn’t ever put himself in the middle of any controversies, speaks well, and is the most physically fit looking golfer in a generation.
    Bottom line is that it’s none of our business. That’s between his dumb ass, his gold digging wife, and all of those money grubbing whores that he was messing around with. I would suppose the rest of you have enough problems of your own to worry about, lol. God knows he does now that he has to write that alimony/child support check and lose his kids in the process.

  88. C. says: Dec 16, 2009 7:12 AM

    Tiger has a ton of money and a ton of women. What else does he need? 2 tons of money, and the ton of women is OK as long as the ton is spread out over 20 women.
    I think that’s what Portis said.

  89. skip7 says: Dec 16, 2009 7:52 AM

    Come on, who on earth cares what Clinton Portis has to say…about anything? Portis probably took some courses from Allen Iverson’s “School of Eloquence.” Portis is a joke, Woods is a joke, celebrities for the most part, are a joke with their inability to keep their egos in check in order to have a relatively normal private life.

    If you think Clinton Portis is “thick,” CNN is running a story this a.m. with Charles Barkley’s words of wisdom. Barkley states, regarding Woods’ apparent isolation from friends, “I don’t think you can talk about it to your friends and family, because your family and friends, they’re not famous.” Barkley and famous just don’t seem to fit in the same sentence. Pathetic.

  92. bake says: Dec 16, 2009 9:03 AM

    Portis would be playing if the Redskins were on a playoff run. The fact that he’s got enough free time to spout off about Tiger is comedy enough. The Redskins should get whatever draft picks they can for him and send him packing before Dan Snyder gets caught with some girl who works for him……

  93. realityonetwo says: Dec 16, 2009 9:27 AM

    I’d like to blame this idiotic rant on his concussion, but we all know better. Portis is the biggest idiot in the NFL.

  94. Big G says: Dec 16, 2009 9:50 AM

    Hey down with danny, you are the idiot, for beliving what you have seen all these years. Come on people, who cares what some guy is doing in his personal life. It is between him & his family. I know you all want to use the same excuse the press uses, but really with all the problems in the world, were concerned about some guy bonking other women. Get a life. Oh by the way, they are saying that he lost 4 teeth with that club. To be truthful, getting hit with a golf club, damage depends on the power of the swinger.

  95. MrAlabamaFootball says: Dec 16, 2009 11:13 AM

    No Clinton, stop standing up for every black person out there. Stand up fopr ridiculed whites too if you are going to cry like a baby.
    And I beg to differ: whjen Tiger has earned only millions thru golf games yet is the first biollionaire athlete from endorsemenmtns then it means companies and firms have banked more than a vested interest in his personality and role modeling for adults and children alike. You are then accountable to a higher standard.
    I say fire Tiger all the way, especial;ly if it comnes out he’s done HGH (and he certainly did get bigger/muscular from a dorky geek look a few years back), then if he straightens up give him another chance but he wont ever be in the spotlight as he once was.
    If you remeber Vejay Singh, etc were ahead of Tiger years back and Tiuger was 3-5th in the world golfing and seemd to have lost his edge and people were playing as aggressive as he was and began to focus more on their hobby/golf just as Tiger only golfed, and less on their vested career/inbterests and they began to pull away fromm Tiger.
    Supposedly Tiger figured it was his knee causing this loss of edge in his sport, had surgery and his knee didnt heal fast enough for his agnets and they called this noted steroid/hgh/calf’s blood canadian dr to treat him.
    when Tiger emerged he was poffy/blown up with muscles and had his edge back????????
    It is noted a very mainstream and popular golfer made the remark that two golfers he knew of were on HGH…here it is later and coming out now about Tigers association with the HGH DR.
    you do the math but if I were about to break all the records held by someone then I would cheat too, especially if people have picked up on how to play the game more aggressively and surpassed me at my own invention.

    Clinton Portis is excactley right. It’s none of your business what Tiger does on his personal life. I don’t want to hear is this what our society is coming too. Give me a break. This is what our society has always been. We just haven’t always had TMZ giving updates every 30 seconds. Martin Luther King Jr cheated on his wife. Where were all you upset family men two months ago screaming about him. It’s just like Chris Rock said you’re only as faithful as your options. So for all you bald fat old married men that try and take the high road because you never cheated on your wife. It’s because no one else would have you!!!! Chapnasty I’m talking mainly to you
    First of all I don’t cheat because I’m in love (awww how cute) and it’s morally reprehensable and disgusting. And on top of that, with AIDS, HPV, Herpes, ETC floating around it cna more than an issue of morality, but rather an issue of life and death. While I’m sure that Elin knew what she was getting herself into since if he were Eldrick the garbage man she would not have given him a sniff, that still doesnt make it right.
    Bottom line is if you are not ready to stop banging random skanks, don’t get married.
    And as far as public perectpion goes, if you are willing so sell yourself as a brand name and reap the benefits of millions that come with it, you also open yourself up to the citicisim that comes with it. The spotlight shines just as birght when things are bad as when they are good, if you don’t like that get off the stage.

  97. texasPHINSfan says: Dec 16, 2009 11:45 AM

    Portis isn’t the smartest guy in the world, but he has a point in the first part of his message. Why does the world care? Let the guy do what he wants, it’s his life, not ours.
    This guy has an affair and it’s all over the tv stations, newspapers, tabloids…. poor guy. Can you imagine if you had your personal life broadcasted all over the world through every news source? Yes, adultery is bad, but let him deal with that. It’s not our place to put his life under a microscope and pass judgements.
    If you’re a golf fan that has followed him for a longo time, that’s one thing. Most of us couldn’t name the last tournament he played in. So who cares?

    MrAlabamaFootball,
    Please be quiet before more of your ignorance oozes through the page. I don’t know too many black people who give a shit about golf, much less are taking up for Woods. Most black people don’t care. Don’t bring up race when it’s not at all relevant to the subject except to highlight your apparent racial biases.
    Most public figures, black or white, have defended his right to privacy. However, Portis has an angle because he and Woods have what in common? Oh yeah, they’re both at least partially black. You’re a dumb ass.
    and DcNinerFan ,
    Likewise to you. Especially when you want to bring Cosby into the conversation. There’s been no bigger adulterer in the public eye. He sent his illegitimate daughter to jail for attempting to extort him a few years ago in advance of letting everyone know that “number one” dad wasn’t keeping his pants zipped. Oh, but I guess he’s okay because he bashes those damn blacks like you want.
    Race has nothing to do with this case except for some of you strange white men who have a hang up of seeing a black man with a blue eyed, blonde woman. Every one of those women were adults knowingly involving themselves with a married man who couldn’t be more in the public eye and from most accounts, were mostly gold diggers. From where I come from, we call those sluts or whores. He’s a loser because no one twisted his arm to get married. You want to be a playboy, knock yourself out. And for the morons thinking that was for endorsements, I think that chest was pretty full before the wife came along…I don’t think his wife and kids were the selling point, it was strictly based on his q rating of favorability from company research because there hasn’t been an athlete who said less of substance in such a position of dominance in his chosen sport, possibly only rivaled by Jordan. His wife is a psycho because no matter what happens in a relationship, you don’t hit anyone, much less lay a person out with a golf club.
    all of the dummies trying to turn this into a race situation are just dumb. You know, because powerful white men like Mark Sandford, Bill Clinton, Mel Gibson, Joe Theisman, Bill Bellichick, John Elway, Joe Montanna, etc. don’t cheat. Give me a break. Feel free to just wear your racist bumper stickers all the time so I know who you are, and don’t wait for this kind of opportunity to crow bar that shit in.
    Portis was asked about the situation just as Peyton Manning was apparently asked about it, just like every celebrity or even minor public figure has been asked about the situation because it’s all over the news.
    Americans kill me. We love our freedoms, except when it comes to people, with no consequence to your well being, living their own lives. Businesses will assess consequences to Woods not for his actions but because the curtain is pulled back on his life, and he’s no longer bankable. To pretend that morals have anything to do with business is quite laughable.
    Like I said earlier, most of these commenters would rather make believe like children. Truly sad. No wonder most of the kids today are screwed up and grow up to be horrible adults. They have morons for parents too busy making men into gods to tell their kids they shouldn’t do so.
