This Is a Tiger Post

Speculation surrounding whether or not Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren will divorce seems to be over. Now it's just a matter of ironing out the details.

Tiger wants Elin to promise to keep quiet about their marriage post divorce and Elin wants $750 million dollars, plus full custody of the kids.
This Tiger Woods divorce looks like it's going to be fought with conventional weapons, and cost thousands of lives. Bill Zwecker of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that negotiations are bogging down over Tiger's demand that Elin Nordegren sign a confidentiality agreement, prohibiting her from writing a book or doing any interviews related to the marriage. Oh, and there's this:

In addition, I'm hearing Nordegren is ramping up her financial demands -- to an estimated $750 million package -- and wants full custody of their children.
I was just talking to my brother about this last night. I was telling him I thought the reason Tiger and Elin were still legally married was not a matter of them trying to work it out. Rather, it's them trying to work out the details of the divorce.

In my opinion, Elin has all of the bargaining chips - she is the only other person who knows what happened. Tiger can afford to pay her, but what he can't afford is to have her smear his already tarnished reputation. If Elin really wants to get back at Tiger, she should agree to take less money and write a book detailing the last year of her life. She could make up some of the difference as a New York Times best selling author.

She wants how much!? Three-Quarters of a Bill is a bit much, even for Tiger. Give her the kids, a decent amount of cash, let her write a book, and find a new wife and make new kids like Pops did.

man $750 million dollars! idk what he did to her she has never earned wages out on the golf course. that is some bull-bleep! that drives me nuts. ever since tiger got married he has never been the same.
Scott Shields says:
750 million is alot, but considering the embarrsement and humilation he has put her, her family, his children through, imo he owes her at least half ... he should just suck it up, pay, and be done with it and go back to winning majors. @ 100M per year (plus or minus), he will be fine.

Hate to admit it but we may have seen the last of "Tiger Woods, the almost greatest golfer of all-time"

Tiger your an idiot.

Dear Tiger: don't take divorce advice from Paul McCartney.
chief_broom says:
What exactly could she say that would make Tiger look worse?
c5agalb says:
How does charlie sheen get away with it?? Tiger should talk to him.
Oak says:
Tiger's biggest mistake was saying "I do." Now he looks like a complete idiot for wasting all that time at the sex clinic when he could have been getting lap dances at Scores or anything more productive. Don't know why he didn't take the $100m from Bodog. His squeaky clean days are over. Maybe he just wants to get the divorce first so he doesn't have to give her half of that.

@ chief_broom- not sure, i think that's the interesting part. it must be something if tiger wants her to remain quiet.
vja430 says:
Damm...she is bugging.
mmontisano says:
why is a confidentiality agreement the thing that's bogging down this divorce? i would think that $750 million dollars is more than enough to warrant a person to shut their mouth...forever. hell, i'd do it for $100!

Spoken like a true Republican...
TeT says:
sorry couldn't resist.... DO NOT START TALKING POLITICS PEOPLE .. it was a quick dig not an indictment of anyones political ideas or of their hair brained ideas for communists umm I mean liberals.

Anyways, we all know the ole' USA will be al lright in the end, I think. Tiger, not so sure these days...
SingleDigits says:
He should get a divorce as quick as possible so that he can go back to sleeping around.
DissidentAggressor says:
<@SingleDigits>: No kidding. Sex addiction isn't so much of a "problem" when you are single.
oobscott2 says:
go get it elin
Shankapotamus says:
In May of 2009 Forbes estimiated his net worth at $600 million. Either Forbes was way off or Elin has over played her hand.

Elin does not seem like the type to go public anyway. I predict she will take the kids to Sweden and never be heard from again. If I was Tiger, I would call her bluff. As stated earlier, he has nothing but money to lose at this point. His reputation (off the course) has already been destroyed.

Elin doesn't seem like the type to go public? Uhhhhhhh... what was she before she was Mrs Tiger? LOL
