“We all know what it was,” says Rock 98.9 heavy hitter Johnny Dare. “It was a PR move – nothing more, nothing less. It was a press conference for the press and the only people he owes an apology to is his family. You know, he went out to apologize to people he didn’t need to apologize to. I don’t think the public wanted it anyway – I think that was strictly for the sponsors.”
As for whether the general public will buy in, “I think they’ll forget about it as soon as he gets back out and starts beating people’s asses on the golf course,” Dare says.
Which brings us to the subject of role models…
“Since when did a fucking golfer become a moral barometer?” Dare asks. “He’s a great golfer nothing more, nothing less.”
Dare’s take on Tiger’s sins:
“He did what all of us want to do. Did he do it stupidly? Of course. Did he do something that was wrong for his family – not wrong for me? Yes.”
“The only thing that tears me up about Tiger is him saying he’s a sex addict. C’mon! You’re addicted to alcohol; you’re addicted to heroin. It’s not an addiction, it’s an urge. I mean, I like girls as much as the next guy but I don’t know anyone who stole a welfare check to buy pussy.
“I don’t know one guy that has said, I’m really tore up about Tiger cheating on his wife. And if he was, he’s a fucking twat. If you’re sitting at home worrying about Tiger Woods having sex with other women, you’re a fucking twat. And I hope your friend punches you off your barstool.”
