Well, this doesn't occur often but I am going to have to disagree with you, ALee.
Eldrick has positioned himself, via multi-million dollar endorsements, multi-milion dollar appearance fees, an almost manic demand for privacy, and an almost psychotic drive to keep the "Team Woods" facade there in front of all of us in today's media.
This monster is his creation (pre-thanksgiving day debacle). Everything he did in the media, on the golf course, in public, with his foundations, groups, charities, etc etc etc etc was EXTREMELY choreographed and manipulated by Eldrick and is handlers. He couldn't even go to the local market to get formula for the tiger-spawn without a press release.
And this was done by design. This was the reason he ~could~ command the multi-million dollar endorsements and multi-million dollar appearance fees.. (hell, he made $3 million just for showing up in Australia!)...
In other words, Eldrick Tont Woods created "Tiger" and everything that goes with that name. His skill on the golf course would have taken him far, but not this far, had he been a 'regular Joe".
I don't remember Jack, Arnie, Lee, Chi-Chi, et al, being more than Great/Good Golfers. They didn't set themselves higher than the sport they played in. And as good as they were, they were still "one-of-the-guys"; a regular joe you could approach on the course for an autograph, etc etc...
Did they fool around? Maybe, maybe not. We can guess and speculate but we don't know. They had money, they were famous, they travelled... sure, it's very likely that they did... but, we didn't/don't care.
the only reason it's our business is because they force it in our faces
And no.. the only reason it's in our faces is because Eldrick made it our business.
If Eldrick had acted more like Arnie, Jack, Ben, Chi-Chi, Lee, Gary, Tom, etc etc, and had just been one of the regular guys on tour that happened to be a damn good golfer, this story would have ended the day after Thanksgiving.
Eldrick has no one else to blame, and neither do we.
