People! You are all freaking out but missing the huge point I am trying to make. I don’t care about all of the other endorsements because they already existed as a company who can hire any one they choose. The difference with Nike Golf is that Nike WAS NEVER IN THE GOLF INDUSTRY BEFORE TIGER WOODS AND BUILT THEIR WHOLE ENTRANCE AND MARKET SHARE OFF OF THIS MAN! Stop thinking about the TMZ crap you are reading (I do not even know or care what they are saying). If you made a company in a market share what it is, then someone finds out something about your personal life (EVERY ONE COULD BE DESTROYED BY 1 THING THEY DID IN THEIR PERSONAL LIFE….DON’T DENY IT!) Then they drop you, when it has nothing to do with the work you did for them. That is WRONG! I’m not going to defend my position again. If you don’t get this, then you have never dared greatly.
This is a forum for all who support Tiger Wood’s amazing contribution to the world. Currently, Nike has the business decision to make to stay with the man who launched their brand into the world of golf, or drop his endorsements. I would submit that they should ride the wave and stand by Tiger. There is no reason to destroy all the good that has been accomplished, over things of no consequence to the world outside of Tiger’s family.
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “The Man In the Arena”
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please buy your significant other Nike Golf Gear for Christmas gifts. This will show your support of leaving Tiger Woods and his family alone.
An Open Letter To Nike
Your company will stand a notch above all others if you stand by Tiger Woods through this difficult moment in his life. I am starting a campaign of support to buy Nike Golf projects for Christmas presents for significant loved ones. People go through things, companies do, you know he’s going to survive this, so don’t leave him like all the other supporters did. Don’t buy into the build em up and tear them down TMZ mentality which is not derived from true character and drive.
Just Do It … and make that your campaign …. one of being loyal….
