Will Nike Kick Tiger Woods To The Curb?

Will Nike Kick Tiger Woods To The Curb?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"As more and more tell their stories, Nike is increasingly on the hot seat.

Nike`s sponsorship of Tiger Woods goes well beyond sponsoring a golfer. Nike sponsors Tiger Woods, the man. And as the number and type of Tiger`s "transgressions" mount (Porn stars? Cocktail waitresses?), Nike has to be second-guessing that strategy."

Tiger Woods makes more money as a pitchman than he does as a golfer. Tiger shills for too many companies to name them all, but the product most closely associated with the golfing icon is Nike.

Nike`s sponsorship of Tiger is starting to hurt the sports equipment company, who hasn`t heard a Tiger Woods "Just Do It" joke on TV or in the workplace? Nike survived allegations that their shoes were made in sweatshops, but it may not survive it`s relationship with the disgraced golfer.

FreakingNews.Com is running a contest to see who can create the best "Tiger Woods Just Do It" picture. Take a look at the pics, funny stuff!

Get it, Nike? Tiger Woods is now a joke! A laughingstock! An object of ridicule! Just do it and can the dirtbag!
