Tiger Woods and GM Conclude Endorsement Deal

Has Tiger finally decided that Buick doesn't exactly present the kind of youthful image he wishes to convey? Tiger and the Tri-shield are parting ways as of December 31, though both Woods and GM promise that the separation is on amicable terms.

Woods claims that he needs more personal time due to the upcoming birth of his second child, and cash-strapped GM explains that it is looking for "budget efficiencies" to keep Wagoner's private jet fueled the lights on in Detroit. Could one of these efficiencies be eliminating Buick if GM is forced into Chapter 11?

Woods has endorsed GM vehicles, especially Buick, for the U.S., Canadian, and Chinese markets for the last nine years. Mark LaNeve, General Motors North American Vice President of Sales, Service and Marketing, calls the timing of GM's financial disaster alongside their decision to axe the Woods endorsement "purely coincidental." Right. Just as the sale of two corporate jets right after an infuriated Congressman blasted Wagoner for flying one to Washington was coincidental.--Colin Mathews

  1. That's good for Tiger, and very smart of his agent (unless he is doing it for free).
    But for GM?
    There is no chance stupid Buick will survive.
    Better GM brands have not (Oldsmobile), thanks to the MORONS CEOS that promoted SATURN, despite its huge and pathetic disadvantages, at Old's Expense.
    Pontiac and GMC will probably not survive either (and that'd be a shame)

    Bad stuff?

  2. What's with your constant negativity, man? So much hatred, name-calling and all this for nothing... No friend or a girlfriend (maybe a boyfriend?) to talk about your troubles?

  3. Now the stupid JERK JKD, the juvenile idiot with pimples that teen girls gave a penny NOT to kiss, this miserablel frog attacks mem again, INSTEAD OF COMMENTING ON +THE posted news!!!
    DUMBASS: When I last visited Wash DC (drove my magnificent 7 with my girnfriend) and was invited for dinner to the NPC by a good friend that lives there, he called her a "GODDESS".
    And FYI, she judges men by their appearance mostly, which I think is a bit superficial, but if you have one ounce of brains, you ugly POS, you can guess that I do not look half bad either!!!!
    you stupid, 100%, USDA choice Jerk!

  5. The first part below is only for that scumbag moron JERKD:
    No, you butt-ugly, pimple-faced, LYING moron JERK-D.. YOU ALWAYS Started the personal attacks on ME. I NEVER start any attack on any other person posting here, UNLESS the JERKS attack ME and I RETAliate, moron. GOt it? (yeah, right). You are UTTERLY INSIGNIFICANT and I have NO REASON to attack your worthless carcass UNLESS you attack me and I RETALIATE.
    The rest of my message is for everybody ELSE but the above moron:
    In fact, I read this blog too fast, and mistakenly thought that your fellow-morons at GM kept Giving Tiger millions of $ to hype thheir POS Buicks, even tho they plan to CLOSE DOWN Buick. But their ending of the account CONFIRMS my suspicions.

  6. It's pretty obvious you have issues and lack the basic ability to read with understanding - there's no reason to tell us that again or try to cover it up with sorry excuses.
    And why are you screaming, dude? The volume will not make up for the lack of content. Now go wash your mouth with some soap.
    Is it safe to assume you won't be replacing your Civic with an old Buick then? I heard Pontiac has good sales on G3s. You should ask your mom to co-sign your loan. It'd be perfect for delivering pizza.

  7. actually saturn could have worked if it had stuck with taking on the japs at their own game by producing small and effecient cars, instead it just became another GM brand with the same crappy cars with slightly different styling. Gm had the right idea just crap execution.
    As to tiger wel he could see the writing on the wall, GM will have to cut back endorsements so get out now and find another one soon. Buick just can't afford to keep him at the moment.
