IS TIGER WOODS PAYING URBAN MYER HUGE COIN TO ACT LIKE A COMPLETE FLAKE?

Here is an excerpt from Jeff MacGregor at ESPN.com re Urban Myers' 11 minute retirement:

"So if he's coaching at Notre Dame when you read this -- or soldiering in the French Foreign Legion or meditating at an ashram in Sonoma or suffering amnesia on a yacht in the Mediterranean or swearing a televised oath that he'll, by God, never go hungry or touch another football again as long as he lives -- forgive me for saying so, but these past few days have seemed more Carole Lombard than Vince Lombardi.

So let's be honest here for a second: If a movie star had pulled the same thing, or a musician or even a football player, we'd all be talking about how inconstant, how flighty and selfish and scatterbrained he was. As fickle as a schoolgirl! How insulting to the rest of us, with our brutal low-wage jobs and our rotten economy and our tenuous incomes and our hardscrabble realities!"
