I can understand the limited media line ... Who should be there? TMZ? Us Weekly? The Big Lead?
If its at the Tour HQ, I'm guessing Ferguson, Golf Digest, ESPN, the Golf Channel and maybe any other major papers who have a full-time golf beat writer will be allowed to attend. But why let NY Post Page Six writer or TMZ or Inside Edition attend?

My only real question was if the damn thing would be carried live by the major networks. What the hell else is on at 11 a.m. at Friday that would draw those kinds of ratings?
I'll bet ESPN, the Golf Channel will air live. I'm also betting FoxNews, CNN, CBS and ABC will be trying to get is aired live as well.

He will not be taking questions.

The height of chutzpah, if true.

No questions. Thank you for coming today, statement, goodbye.

If true, then the media should boycott the presser. Not going to happen I'm guessing, but ...

This douchebag is in no position to dictate the terms of anything, let alone a press conference.

But what?

Are you a journo?

Have you ever heard of Tiger Woods? How the hell is he not in a position to dicate such a thing? THE SOB could call a presser at PGA Tour headquarters demand that anyone who covers it has to stand on one foot and recite "Mary Had a Little Lamb" backwards.
If you cover PGA golf, you cover Tiger.

I don't agree with what he did or what he is doing, but to suggest a boycot is a tad ridiculous.

Yeah, I'm a journo. I just have a problem with him being able to dictate terms of a presser in this situation. Of course it will get covered, and of course his little dog-and-pony show will be standing-room only.

And of course I'll run something on it, because it's what we do. But I'll make damn sure the "took no questions" bit is in there, if that ends up being the case.
 
Doesn't mean I have to like it.

Think I'd do the same, hack ... and I'd have a long talk with my editor on whether it's worth my time to staff it, or we just pick up Ferguson's verbal fellatiostory. I have a huge problem with newsmakers that call a presser, then read their statement and walk off the dais without taking questions. I'm also sympathetic with boycott talk, but my wounded ego not the story, Tiger is. An interested reader is going to find the story somewhere, and I'd prefer it be mine.

What is the situation, actually? A professional athlete cheated madly on his wife. He didn't kill anyone, commit crimes against society, he's not going to jail or standing trial. He's going to get up there, say he is horribly sorry for his actions and plans to spend the rest of his life working hard to be a better person, and he plans to get back to golf whenever.

I would guess the 'whenever' will be part of the statement.

Otherwise, he's just a publicly humiliated celebrity.

And if some of the details that have leaked out are true, then a crime has possibly been covered up. That's a problem.

From Ferguson's AP story: "Woods' agent says the media will be limited." Seriously, show some balls, media. It's at a normal tour event. Unless anyone with event credentialing gets in, boycott it. Tell them to just e-mail the three-minute video since that's all there's going to be anyway.

But knowing the golf press, I'm sure people are campaigning for one of the limited spots, so they can be "insiders."

If you're a reporter, you want to be in that room. It doesn't mean you can't emphasize the "took no questions" part, but being in the room is better than not being in the room.

Exactly. And don't lay this on the golf press. If Kobe Bryant held a press conference with no questions several years ago, how many NBA writers would pass that up? If Barry Bonds has a presser about steroids tomorrow with no questions, how many baseball writers are passing it up?

AP moving a story with some details on the presser:

Tiger to hold news conference Friday
DOUG FERGUSON,AP Golf Writer


MARANA, Ariz. (AP) Tiger Woods will end nearly three months of silence Friday when he speaks to the media for the first time about his middle-of-the-night accident that sparked shocking revelations about his infidelity.

Woods will talk to a small group of reporters at 11 a.m. Friday from the clubhouse of the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home of the PGA Tour.

"This is all about the next step," Mark Steinberg, his agent, told The Associated Press. "He's looking forward to it."

Steinberg said he would speak to a "small group of friends, colleagues and close associates" about his past and what he plans next, along with apologizing for his behavior.

He said three wire services would be invited, and he was asking the Golf Writers Association of America to pick a small group of reporters to serve as a pool. Steinberg said there would be one pool camera, but it would be available live via satellite.

The news conference will be held during the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona, and is sure to steal attention away from the first big event of the year. Accenture was the first sponsor to drop Woods when he became embroiled in a sex scandal.

"It was a matter of timing," Steinberg said.

When asked if the news conference could have waited until after Accenture's tournament, he replied, "No."

That's the money shot. Accenture, of course, was a Tiger sponsor and jumped ship fairly quick once all this broke. I guarantee you Tiger is having this statement now to shove it up Accenture's ass (overshadowing their tournament), and he will never play in the match play again as long as Accenture's name is on the door.

edit: What Inky said.

edit2: Perhaps "money shot" wasn't a great choice of words  ;D

Hell yes it was a great choice.

And what the Accenture CEO ought to be doing right now is getting the PGA Tour commissioner and saying, "You know those millions we're supposed to pony up this week? We're not paying a dime. You're supposed to be helping promote this event and one of your members is doing this. You don't like it? Sue us."

Despite what would have seemed to be ample opportunity, neither of those things ever happened, probably because their sports' media policy never allowed them to be such controlling douchebags. So I think your hypothesis is proved to be complete crap. Kobe was facing 20 years in jail, and he took questions.

This will not end well.

There is not a PR flak in the country that can properly coach Tiger on how to go up there and not sound like a bitter, condescending prick.

If I was coaching him, I would tell him to start sobbing uncontrollably, make a reference of how he was glad his father didn't live to see this, beg for forgiveness from his family apologize to everyone and continue sobbing so much that he has to walk out.

I think that's the only way some would start to feel sorry for him.

That's a big if, hack. And what crime are you talking about?

Domestic battery, if the story about the her hitting him with the golf club is true. And you are right, it's a very big "if."

But look at the way this was handled from the start: Tiger and the wife first blew off the police daily for what, 3 days? Then they blew them off for good.

None of this passes the smell test for me.

Phoenix? Home of the rowdiest crowd on the PGA Tour? No way Tiger shows up there.

Of course it will fuck Accenture. The fallout will easily overshadow two more days of golf -- and the final two days of the match play, sans Tiger, aren't riveting anyway. Gotta fill the dead time and it will all be Tiger talk.

It is mentioned in the headline and second graph of ESPN's story:

MARANA, Ariz. -- Tiger Woods will end nearly three months of silence Friday when he speaks publicly for the first time since his middle-of-the-night car accident sparked stunning revelations of infidelity.

However, his agent said Woods will not take any questions from a small group of media.

So you won't watch the Accenture because of the Tiger presser?
I won't watch 'cause I prolly won't care (because Tiger's not playing), but I still don't see how he's fucking Accenture with the presser.
