Puma and Absa have shown SAFA a red card. It was a matter of time. Sponsors rate BRAND IMAGE highly and are not prepared to be associated with bad publicity. Cricket SA, Oscar Pistorius, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones etc can confirm my gospel
For those who feel sorry for Paula Dean losing all of her endorsements because of her use of the N-word, I ask Is she special ? May I remind you Tiger Woods lost his major endorsements because of a domestic scabble with his wife which was none of our business. Colby Bryant lost his shoe endoresments when he was accused of rape which was incidently was unfounded, Marion Jones lost her Olympic medals and endorsements for steriod use and was sent to prison. And Ms.Dean should get a pass ! Why is it when you use derogatory words against African Americans were being too senitive but when derogatory terms are used towards Jewish people it's considered anti-Semitism Why is that? And don't tell me young black people use it, yes they do, and I don't condone that either I cringe when I hear it used by them, same goes for the B-word or H-words used by them to describe our women, And I'm trying to change that mind set. End of story.
Oxnard's Bud Houser, T.O.'s Marion Jones, Westlake's Eric Wynalda and Agoura's Deena Drossin Kastor were among the CIF-Southern Section's 100 Greatest Athletes. Santa Barbara had seven athletes, including Terry Schroeder (San Marcos water polo)Jamaal Wilkes (moved from Ventura) and Kami Craig (SBHS water polo 2005 last top 100). Tiger Woods (Western) is one of the inaugural Hall of Famers. The CIF started with 30 high schools and five leagues. Phoenix High (Ariz.) was the largest school and Long Beach Poly was around back then. L.A. City became the fifth state section in 1935 and San Diego formed the ninth section in 1960. Today the CIF-SS has 569 high schools and 83 leagues. Track and field got the CIF rolling. Jackie Robinson, Cheryl Miller, Glenn Davis, Pat Haden, the list goes on and on. Fullerton's Walter Johnson (1905) leads off the list.
Luis Suarez will feel right at home with Nike and the other stars like Tiger Woods, Oscar Pistorius, Lance Armstrong and Marion Jones.
The exploits of South African, Oscar Pistorius, astounded the sports world last year during the London Olympics. Now we are astounded again, this time for the wrong reasons. This week the two time Olympic gold medallist has been arraigned on charges of the murder of his celebrity girl friend, Reeva Steenkamp. We witness once again the fall, from fame to shame, of an athletic super star. Marion Jones the five time gold medallist, Tiger Woods the billionaire golfer, Lance Armstrong, Mr Titanium cyclist and now, the latest among the "Sports Oscars"... Oscar himself. Ah, why must lessons of grace come from disgrace and lessons in humility come from humiliation? Perhaps it is all part of the mystery of God's exquisite dealings with human nature. This from IAN
Nike have a new advertising campaign, after Justin Gatlin, Marion Jones, Michael Vick, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, and ...
I mean after Tiger Woods, Marion Jones, Neil Armstrong, and now Oscar Pistorius, Nike's new slogan should be "Just Don't Do It"
The Wall Street Journal is the best newspaper in America, in my opinion. An article by Futterman in the Friday, Feb 15th, issue is illustrative. Entitled "The Big Business of Fairy Tales", the subtitle is "Nike Takes Fire Again Over One of its Athletes". Nike endorser Oscar Pistorius, the Olympian blade runner who lost his lower legs in childhood, was arrested this past week charged with murdering his girlfriend. Pistorius joins a who's who list of fallen Nike endorsers: Tiger Woods, Marion Jones, Michael Vick, Joe Paterno and Lance Armstrong. Nike sells shoes. Lots of shoes. It's has a $2.7 billion annual marketing budget. It spends $4 billion on endorsement fees, or about 15% of annual revenues. Can Nike's strategy of paying big bucks to sport celebrity endorsers continue to sell shoes when the celebrities keep leaping off their pedestals into the muck? Yes, Futterman says. "The thing about Nike that rarely gets acknowledged it that it doesn't sell shoes, or even athletes, as much as it buys an ...
The Nike curse. All of these have been sponsored by Nike: Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Michael Vick, Marion Jones, Oscar Pistorious.
Nike sure knows how to pick them. The latest is with Oscar Pistorius, a double amputee runner from South Africa. Friday he will have a bail hearing for charges that he shot his girlfriend. Add to the list some of their past endorsements: Tiger Woods, Joe Paterno, Lance Armstrong and Marion Jones.
Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Oscar Pistorius, Marion Jones, Justin Gatlin - Nike are not having much luck with athlete endorsers
Jose Canseco, Sammy Sosa, Mark Mcgwire, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Roger Clemens... Marion Jones, Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods... Michael Vick, Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno, Jovan Belcher, Jerry Brown, Josh Brent... It seemed like when I was a kid, sports were just sports. Have people changed that much or do we just know that much more about people? I feel like watching SportsCenter now is more like watching CNN Headline News.
Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones, and Alex Rodriguez all confessed to using PEDs. Tiger Woods confessed to marital infidelity. not the same.
Tiger Woods' mea culpa is not in the same category as Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones, and Alex Rodriguez. apples & liars. cc
"Inside Edition" has a poll for the Biggest Liar: the list is completely made up of Democrats (Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner) and athletes (Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Marion Jones)...hmm.
'Heroes and Role Models'... We need our Heroes and stories about Heroes. They are timeless fables that help us see how big we can be. As the Heroes story grows bigger and bigger over time, so do our expectations about what each of us can become over time. But in Our Time it's the Heroes Egos that are growing wildly out of control as they all but shrink away from all the responsibility that comes with being a Hero. 11 years ago Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark Mcgwire, Sammy Sosa, Marion Jones and Tiger Woods were all modern day Heroes in the eyes of so many kids around the world. Today, all I can say is where did all the Heroes and Role Models go, and which W.A.Y. will our children go... now that all of their Heroes have gone away? Maybe, these athletes weren't really the Heroes we thought they were to begin with. Maybe, real Heroes are the people who do what they do not for glory, money and fame... but because they "do the right thing" when the right thing is what we need done. And they do what needs to ...
referring to Role Models, not sports heroes, but the concepts come from the same deep-seated need to make things what they are not. We crave illusion, and athletes have historically been vessels of our self-deception. In light of the dramatic falls of Michael Vick, Marion Jones, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Tiger Woods and now Lance Armstrong, we need to either recalibrate our definition of the sports hero or scrap it altogether. The concept is based largely on ignorance: the less we know about an athlete, the easier it becomes to invest him with lofty ideals. The ideals have little to do with the athlete’s character and everything to do with creating an artificial construct that serves a need.
10 years ago, a man could proudly point his children toward heroes such as Lance Armstrong ,Tiger Woods, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa or even Marion Jones. Liars and deceivers, one and all. Just whom will my children find disappointing from today's sporting world a decade from now?
They tryna take out Lance Armstrong like Barry Bonds, Marion Jones, and Tiger Woods! And Tiger didn't even cheat! On the game at least...
: So NIKE drops Lance Armstrong because they do not condone "alleged" doping. I guess they fully support admitted doping (Alex Rodriguez and Marion Jones), alleged sexual assault (Kobe Bryant) and adultery (Tiger Woods) because they never dropped ANY of those athletes. Funny because I don't remember any of those athletes changing countless lives by raising millions of dollars for anything.
What does this say about Nike and our values as a society...? Nike dumps Lance Armstrong after overwhelming evidence that his career was fueled, start to finish, by illegal performance enhancing drugs. Nike ended contracts with quarterback Michael Vick following his conviction for crimes related to dog fighting and with sprinter Marion Jones after a doping confession. -- So far so good right? Nike DID NOT end contracts with basketball player Kobe Bryant or golfer Tiger Woods following acknowledgements of adultery.
:Heroes: So another one bites the dust. Or did he? We live in a society where we love our heroes. Yet it is devastating to watch as the pedestals that we put them on somewhere beside Jesus and Abraham Lincoln crumble. I can think of a few of my heroes that have blown it big and left me stranded in the wake of disappointment. Tiger Woods, Magic Johnson, Joe Paterno, Marion Jones, Michael Vick, Lance Armstrong. These are all people that I would have encouraged my children to aspire to become. I suppose after the Jerry Sandusky case broke I realized that I needed to reevaluate who my real heroes are. People that have in some way influenced my life in both tangible and intangible ways. People that have inspired and encouraged me to keep going even when I wanted to give up. Here are some of my real heroes some of them you may know. Paula Jones, Marvin A. Jones, Richards Miller, Jim Warner, Chuck Zink, Sally Zink, Jesus Christ, Myron Jones, Wilhelmina Mitchell. I am probably leaving out a handful. Th ...
Lance Armstrong is about to be stripped of ALL SEVEN of his Tour De France titles.dude has been battling the anti-doping agency for years! He won't be able to coach cyclists, he can't compete, or own a team.its a shame that almost EVERY great athlete we put on a pedestal in our generation was thought to be "super human". Barry Bonds was the best home run hitter of all time...Mark Mcgwire and Sammy Sosa battled to be the best home run hitter in a single season...eventually McGwire won..only to be surpassed by Barry Bonds.Marion Jones was "the best female track start ever". Roger Clemens and Andy Petitie both busted.IF ANYONE IN SPORTS IS DOING ANYTHING EXTRADORDINARY...YOU SHOULD BE SUSPICIOUS OF P.E.D. USEAGE...Usian Bolt, he just jogs to the finish line after being the second slowest out of the gate, Tiger Woods was the greatest golfer we have ever seen, he is more physically fit then any golfer, and he had been treated for an injury by a know Dr that provides pathients with p.e.d.'s. Michael Phelps? Al ...
Way to go Lance Armstrong. Got to give it up to all the cheats: Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens, Ben Johnson,Marion Jones, O.J Mayo, Mark Mcgwire, Shane Mosley, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Gary Sheffield. I'm sure I missed a ton of them. Oh yeah, let's not forget Tiger Woods. Sooner or later, the world will know that even the most talented golfer, I have ever seen, cheated too. What is fair play? We all love the Avengers. It is really cool too boost up a drug-induced superhero, like Captain America, who defends American ideals - I guess. Thing is Superhero and Superstar are too totally different things. Stop cheating!
Not only is Lance Armstrong being called a cheat, but the words being used are "world class liar and cheat." Armstrong's alleged doping scandal is being ranked right up there with LeBron's "decision" and Tiger Woods' fall from grace. I cannot accept that. To me, though I am no particular far of cycling, it is without a doubt and beyond question that Lance Armstrong is probably the strongest most atheletic person to ever compete in any sport. To win as he did over a career is untouchable by even the best of the NBA or NFL. But now, Armstrong (again) is a claimed cheater; alleged to have used performance enhancing drugs and doping. Threats are being made to take away his SEVEN world titles. Now retired from Cycling, Armstrong has gone on to participate in triathlon competitions. On the mere accusation Of wrongdoing alone, Armstrong has been banished from the Triatholon competition where he was dominating. Hey, I dont care if he was using performance enhancing drugs or not, The choice should be his ...
