I am so tired hearing about Steve Williams and Tiger Woods when so much good golf is being played in the world right now by true golf players with true gentlemanly behavior.

I am so tired of reading articles about a few rotten apples in golf because it's all the majority of reporters have the imagination to write about.

I am so tired of reading who is wrong and who is right when both leading characters in this farce have both been wrong in their behavior for several years.

This is nothing more than honor among thieves.

One moment we root for one of the bad guys, the next moment we root for the other.

I am so tired of not listening about how bad Woods had behaved before he cheated on his wife.

I am so tired of not listening about how bad Williams had behaved before he was fired by Woods.

I am so tired of not listening about how both Woods and Williams could get away with being bullies in the world of golf just because of the simple fact that they were a successful team.

I don't get that people don't get that Williams should have been fired as a caddy when he talked bad in public about Phil Mickelson.

I don't understand how people don't get that Woods showed unethical behavior in general, long before he was caught cheating on his wife.

I don't understand how people don't get that golf is not about cheap, tabloid behavior but behaving decently and not acting like trailer trash in a reality show.

Steve Williams was fired because of Woods' disturbed sense of vanity, but it was an episode bound to happen, because it's like the honor among thieves.

Tiger Woods was criticized by Steve Williams in the most inappropriate way, but it was an episode bound to happen, because it's like the honor among thieves.

People and the press will drool over this controversy for as long as they possibly can, and we love it to happen, because what we love to do the most is discuss the honor among thieves.

There is a new world order in golf: wrong is the new right and we seem to be OK with it.
