As noted by golf blogger Geoff Shackelford today, when Tiger Woods Charity Foundation President & CEO Greg McLaughlin isn’t collecting a $503,138 annual paycheck for running a charity and stamping out rumors that Tiger donated money to earthquake relief efforts, he’s Tweeting insightful observations
that could in no way be construed as sour grapes:
The line for Pats v Bengals remains -4.5 after Brady’s “serious car accident”. I’m sure the media couldn’t have missed this one.
McLaughlin is clearly suggesting that Brady’s car accident wasn’t that serious, despite the New England quarterback’s car getting t-boned in a high speed collision.
But why would the guy running Tiger Woods’ charity foundation mock Brady’s vehicular misfortune in the first place?
After Tiger’s car accident Thanksgiving night, McLaughlin was one of the golfer’s support staff members charged with obscuring the relevant details of Tiger’s single-car crash to the media.
With his Tweet McLaughlin was attempting draw a comparison between the car accidents of Tiger and Brady in having us believe that the media overreacted to both incidents.
What McLaughlin, not coincidentally, failed to note in his Tweet was that it was the massive coverup of Tiger’s accident by the golfer himself, Tiger support staff members like McLaughlin and the attending police that created the media’s need to follow the story for an extended period of time.
