Scholarly Thinker Brendan Haywood Weighs In On Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

I have tried so hard to keep TSB a Tiger-free zone since that last link dump, but I hope you'll allow me this one indulgence, because this kind of stupidity deserves highlighting. ↵

↵Wizards center Brendan Haywood, who shot his mouth off about Stephon Marbury potentially being gay in a radio interview, took to his Yardbarker blog to give his eagerly anticipated thoughts on Tiger Woods. ↵

↵
↵⇥And while I will acknowledge that what Tiger did was wrong and irresponsible, my biggest problem in this situation isn’t with Tiger, it’s with his wife, Elin Woods! They say you can’t put a price on love but someone obviously never told Elin that! After hearing of Tiger’s extramarital affairs, her first move wasn’t to go to her family for help; she went straight to the bank! If you haven’t heard, just days after this whole situation was brought to light, Elin had the couple’s prenuptial agreement restructured and immediately had $5 million dollars put inter her personal account – this just in order to stay in the marriage. [...] ↵⇥

↵⇥ All I’m saying is that Elin better be glad she’s married to Tiger Woods instead of Chris Brown or this whole story could’ve been reported differently! ↵⇥

↵Ah yes, that Elin is lucky Tiger didn't tee off on her face and make her look like this. I believe what Haywood just gave right there was the world's greatest "with all due respect," followed up by a rationalization that a lot of men would've beaten their women for ... wait, why would she have gotten hit again? ↵
