Will the media turn on Peyton Manning the way they have turned on Tiger?

    Woods is a manbo, buy nobody knew till recently. Everyone knew he was an arse, but wrongly assumed he had character. Bottom line I don't care about Woods nor his image nor his bimbettes. And yes if Gayton was to commit the same transgressions he would be treated the same. If only we can talk DeJavue into sending all 53 chicks into his film room. I am sure he would have them line up and run the route tree for him though

    Possibly. Because we know how America hates the gays...

    But honestly? No. America treats black athletes differently. It's COOL that Tom Brady had 2 super-model girlfriends at once. Tiger's the devil for cheating on a white chick. Kobe was the devil for cheating with a white chick. We don't even care that Manny Pacquiao cheats constantly on his wife. Alex Rodriguez? Nope. Forgotten. Even Hulk Hogan got away with screwing his daughter's best friend while married. David Beckham is our idol for doing what he does...and it's not only Posh.
    Lance Armstrong is still an American hero. Why wasn't he thrown under for his affair?

    American media can't allow us to believe good black people exist. Maybe it sounds extreme, but it's awful coincidental how these things work out.

    opinions are a wonderful thing. I love those sitcoms where they take the same incident and show it thru different characters eyes.

    I definatly disagree with you on this. The fact is you know of all these issues because they were reported. You know how Bobby Brown ruined Whitney Houston, you know about that dude who clocked Rihiana (sp) as well. Facts are facts you don't argue them you state them. So apparently America is also concerned with talented black singers no?


    Bottom line Woods is an idiot for messing around on a supermodel. If he wanted too play he should not have gotten married. He got married and that means he should not behave the way he has - completly without character. Its not racial, but if you choose too see it that way then nothing will change your mind, certainly not this post anyways - lol

    The media is racist. They only did this to Tiger because he's Blasian.

    That's kinda how I see things. I also think they knew Tigers career had peaked and to generate more buzz for golf, they send him into exile only to create a media crapstorm when he comes back. If there is no tiger woods, golf loses more than half of their fans.

    Last year, the Ryder cup was here in Louisville, and once Tiger got injured, people started selling their tickets at discount. Before he was injured, you couldn't find a ticket. It was still one of the best ryder cups ever. (Despite the fact that 75% of Louisville was without power because of the remnants of hurricane Ike) but without Tiger, Golf doesn't generate any buzz whatsoever.

    The media is out to target anyone that is well known. So bigger the celebrity the more media your gonna see on that person. It's not just that Tiger is a huge celebrity, its who he is and what he did. So if Manning does some negative things then of course he will be a victim of the media. If Tiger wouldn't have got caught or done any of this then the media wouldn't have targeted Tiger like they have.

    TitansErick...

    Peyton has a clean image because he plays in a small market and...while he's easily ONE of the best players in the NFL currently, he might NOT be the best player now and may not be the best ever. Tiger IS the best ever and much better than anyone now. His pedestal as an athlete is much higher than Manning because he's so much better than everyone else at what he does. BECAUSE he's so much better, and young, and clean cut, and of mixed ethnicity, he's been branded the perfect athlete. Did Tiger ASK to be branded that way? No. But it's not like he resisted it either. He has made hundreds of millions off that image. Manning has made millions....BIG difference. Tiger is a Global brand...Manning isn't. Soccer players in Italy, England, ect are much bigger celebs than Manning EVER will be over there. Tiger is above them all. BIG difference. Put it this way, outside of Tom Brady marrying one of the most well known super models, I couldn't tell you who any NFL athlete is married to. Everyone on the planet knows who Tiger is married to. I'm a huge Football fan and dislike Golf...and yet I know who Tiger is married to and Elin was not exactly a Victoria secret Supermodel. Get the picture? So a scandal of someone SO famous is bad enough. When that scandal shows that he is a terribly flawed person (perhaps he's just a bad guy?) and completely the opposite of his image which has made him gazillions of dollars, people are not only outraged, but almost feel cheated. Not to mention, there's his 'perfect' blonde model wife and we see all the lower class women he chose to be with instead...over and over and over again. Cheating and divorce is unfortunately quite prominent in our society so this is a reminder to every woman who's been cheated on! Why do you think it's splashed over every magazine? Men don't buy those mags...women do!

    Manning isn't in the same class because he's not iconic outside of football circles, makes a mere fraction of what Tiger does in endorsements and isn't the best player in his sport which room to spare. Here's an easy example...who's Peyton Manning married to?

    Since our news is no longer news but basically entertainment...scandals are the 'best' thing a 'news' stats can get. They aren't about informing the public, they are about RATINGS!!! Check out Fox 'News' for an example.

    The media is out to get anyone they can. Look at that couple Jon and Kate plus eight. That mess was all over the media and taploids when he cheated or whatever happen. If you are well known and especially if you are still active in what you do like Tiger was in golf or that couple with their tv show then you are a big target.
