With the AP AWOL, how will you handle the Tiger sex rehab story?

    AP says they're watching the Tiger-in-rehab story but have no immediate plans to file anything.

    "We've tried to stay away from the really sensational stuff," I was told, as if that was a point of pride on a huge reader-interest story.

    We feel compelled to do something, as the clinic is in our state. Run a brief with the credit to RadarOnline, etc.

    Thoughts?

    I don't mean to be insulting, but you don't have a reporter and photographer down there right now? Hell, the first pix of Woods anywhere near that joint are worth a bundle.

    You're really going to run something you pulled from RadarOnline.com?

    If you can get shots of him whacking off in the bushes one last time before entering the facility, you may get a Pulitzer.

    Isn't the clinic being in your state punishment enough for the man?

    You can do what one of the Jackson TV stations did. Send a reporter to stand across the street from the clinic, which appears to be on Highway 49, in the hopes that he leaves the tinted car window down when he makes a run to the local Kangaroo for booze and condoms.
    That poor reporter had cars whizzing past 10 feet from her as she's doing her stand-up. It was ridiculous.

    Remember this one? A San Diego reporter hears that Alan Wiggins is in a drug rehab facility. He sneaks his way in, trying to find Wiggins. And he finds teammate Juan Bonilla, too.

    Let whoever's in charge of the celebrity gossip roundup deal with it. This part of the story isn't a sports story.

    No wonder our business is in trouble.

    It's not a long-drive contest?
