Tiger's latest news-worth (not) incident

You've all seen it..Tiger arrested for DUI...Man that made headlines didn't it?  I guess because it's TIGER, it's makes headlines.  But I saw this today;

Following Tiger Woods' arrest on a DUI Monday, golf legend Jack Nicklaus is hoping for the best for the 41-year-old. 

"I feel bad for Tiger," Nicklaus said, per Golf Channel's Nick Menta. "Tiger’s a friend. He’s been great for the game of golf. He needs our help. I wish him well."

So, first off I love Jack.  I do.  But why does Tiger need our help?  Based on  what we know, he had a medication issue that cause his DUI...yes, we all read the bottles of pain meds ( i take them for my back) which say could causy drowsiness, don't drive.  And sometimes we think we can handle it and we can't.  Never happened to me but clearly it was an issue for Tiger.  Thankful, so Thankful no one got hurt and it didn't cause him to fall asleep and drive into a populated area.  So this ended the best way it probably could have for Tiger.  Even with the negative publicity. 

But why exactly does Tiger need our help?   I feel bad for him too, just like I would anyone in that situation.  But I just don't feel worse for him than I would anyone else.  I see this as something Tiger will control easily without "us" so...????

 

Maybe I have the wrong perspective on it, but I dislike all the sensational media headlines these days trying to garner attention...

Why does Tiger need our help?

Why does Tiger need our help?  It's simple really; he has a substance abuse problem.  In fact, it's pretty obvious to me that he suffers from addiction to several things, golf being just one.

Jack is a better man than me though because I've lost all sympathy for this doofus.  I don't think that half of it is getting even remotely discolsed.  Nothing would surprise me at this stage and I won't be surprised to wake up one morning in the next few years to hear that he is gone.

He may have an addition

He may have an addition problem, we're clearly on the outside looking in so we don't have a 100% clear view of all the facts.  I just hate the fact it's plastered everywhere.  I mean many athletes get pulled for DUI, HGH, etc, and most get a single line on ESPN...not mug shots posted, articles of his continued embarrasment, etc.  That's what bugs me. 

Golf is a game that can only be played...

There are lots of things

There are lots of things going on in professional sports that generates negative headlines, but there are few singular icons of the stature of Tiger.  This is what happens when the mighty falls.  It's the price of adoration!

Maybe this is exactly what

Maybe this is exactly what tiger needs. Maybe now hw will sit down with his doctors and figure out that he NEEDS to take a step backwards, and let his body heal so he can get back to normal with OUT taking any meds to deal with the pain. Get healthy, get OFF drugs and THEN get back to golf IF he can. NOT playing tour golf will NOT kill him, But doing drugs sure could.
