    it was a tasteless joke in the vein of "they all look the same"

    Tiger said he deserved it, and Haney apologized, and he hasn't "lost his job" as the opinion piece says, he'll be back, calm down people

    Tiger's acts were certainly worse than Haney's words yet Tiger didn't lose his job. He should know better than to offer an opinion.

    Except he didn't say that. Some interpreted it as that, but nothing about what he actually said was "they all look the same".

    He does talk about professional golf. And do you really believe that being a brand ambassador (i.e. human billboard) means he's supposed to be studying up on the LPGA?

    Pretty much this. He basically dismissed the whole tour and said well it some Korean named Kim. As someone who is an ambassador of one of the largest OEM in golf and host a show about golf to promote the game, it wasn't his brightest idea, but then again that is who he is.

    No but if you are a walking billboard for a company that sponsors said organization and women named Lee and other Korean players you might want to not down play them. Companies tend to not like people they pay to make them look good, talking crap about their athletes.

    Here is my take...

    What he said was not untrue, but dumb. If it was a discussion had privately then sure, go ahead. But if you are on the radio and saying that... how do you not know in this day and age that it is not going to be taken poorly?

    But that article is something else, guy said something dumb, he isn't proposing genocide. And this is the problem with the current outrage culture, everything is the worst thing that ever happened, even if it isn't the worst thing happening in the last 5 seconds.

    The comments he made were in poor taste - essentially diminishing the LPGA tour. The PGA Tour, as sponsor of the radio show, certainly has to decide if that's the image they want to project.

    Agree with the article that the vilification of Haney as a person was over the top.

    And that is why I enjoyed the article. Hearing someone like Brennan say that Haney should never be allowed on a golf course anywhere in the world and she writes for the 3rd largest paper in the world is troublesome, but pretty par for the course for most media like hers.

    I agree the outrage is overblown. He did open himself up for it so, he gets what he gets. Sirius/XM and Callaway are private companies and they will handle it as they see fit. Michelle Wie I am sure took offense as she said, but USA Today was way over the line.

    This. I think the generalist idea of the mob mentality, which is touched on again in the story in the first post is that most here didn't hear the Haney comment.
