He Alex Rodriguez here's a tip.
If you wanted to hear I don't know less sinister take a cue from tiger and just score not that kind of store that was.
Really never an issue for either -- -- I'm going about just the winning score until about does winning.
Period because the year Tiger Woods ahead and -- Nike ads bumping and winning takes care of everything that is the actual ad campaign.
You know maybe they're right because in tiger's case ever since he turned his game around started winning.
It didn't really matter whether he turned his life around started -- he's winning who cares all is good.
So why -- father Jonathan -- -- point holy water on Nike's parade and saying no no no this is not good.
Father winning doesn't take care.
And I like Tiger Woods I root for him among -- I want to see him win because I love stories of redemption.
But I don't think if you asked his wife.
His ex -- Whether winning takes care of everything she would say yes and I think I don't think if you asked his children.
That they would say yes and I would I would I would hope and I believe that even if you asked tiger.
Does winning really fix everything I hope but I believe he would say no so I think it's I think it's shameful for ninety.
Knowing exactly what they're doing they don't they don't -- -- -- think they -- we -- and advertising they know exactly what they're doing.
For them to suggest that winning fixes everything I think is -- low.
And I think companies -- have solved social responsibilities.
Well Nike obviously because this create a little bit of a dust -- may be beyond just.
The religious community fathers of the tiger has always said he competes to win when asked about his goals are just getting back to number one.
He has -- consistently winning as a way to get there the statement references.
That sentiment and is a salute to his athletic performance of the fact of the matter -- -- was originally said in response to some of the dust up he you know and the headlines around it and winning also quiet separate.
And I'm wondering if he's winning now because he's happier now instead girlfriend -- very tight on me bees gone through this personal crisis.
He and his former wife are on good terms with the kids so maybe that is why as well we'll never now.
-- the message clearly from the campaign is.
You can dismiss your critics and quiet them down -- -- Well and I couldn't agree with you more that now that he has things in order.
I had no reason believe otherwise I don't know his personal situation.
Up close but.
Certainly that affects your soul in your mind your state you're -- mental state.
And we saw that over the last two and a half years he didn't play very well and things were -- But I think he is responsibility Nike has responsibility not to suggest take kids who look to him as -- That is long as you get winning again and that's going to fix everything else and it's a very clear.
Very very clear.
Suggestion here and that's what that's what winning fixes your personal life as well.
You know I was aware of -- fathered two little boys and I notice that.
You know there are always those parents in the stands at their games and it's just crazy they're -- take winning it all counts eat it I don't -- that -- spent encouraging us on the foul.
And I'm thinking like.
That is a weird masses -- There -- added we wanted to -- a thousand bad -- commodity yeah I played as good plot area.
But you're -- like it did this you know a bad idea its -- the best revenge.
I understand where all that's -- But it does send a kind of a weird.
Message says it.
It it does and I hope tiger on stepped up and explains and I hope Nike.
Ceases and and and stops this done this ad campaign because it it is not a message that I think they would want.
I'm related to their own company to their brand and I don't think it's something that -- tiger would want to teach his kids and all of the fans who watched.
But he he is right in this respect right since he started winning and -- -- -- world's number one golfer he's heading into the masters and you know what the wind at its back on.
All the criticism in -- soap opera headlines all that -- hey I'm glad I'm glad it did he went through hell.
And I love stories of redemption I root for tiger also because he is such an unbelievably gifted I would say.
A man gifted by -- with unbelievable talent and we see that.
-- puts it to good use I want him to succeed I am I want to succeed.
And professionally I just think in this case it's important to step up and to say what Nike is suggesting here.
-- young kids who follow him as a hero is wrong.
It shouldn't do it okay.
You do drop the phone I love to golf your take a -- I take many moments that you do all right father thank you very very much now we know don't let it bother -- -- -- well.
