I'm not making an attempt to justify the things Tiger Woods did. That's not my point. I'm just saying it's not all so simple that we can merely hate the guy and root for him to lose because he made mistakes. A few college-level psychology classes really should provide enough support for my notion that what went on, goes on and will likely continue to occur in Tiger's head is incredibly complicated with a history rooted in a relatively odd childhood.
No matter how you feel about all of that -- assuming you (speaking generally when I say you, by the way) actually do think about these matters above some basic level -- Tiger bringing much-needed publicity back to the game of golf should have very little to do with the mindless publicity we (speaking as a collective there) like to claim he brought on himself.
