Tonight at 7:30 PM on CBS on The Insider You will see my exclusive body language coverage regarding Tiger Woods body language during his press conference Where he was asked some major questions regarding his relationship and his past behavior.
It is clear that Ari Fleisher is new SPIN advisor did his job and told Tiger how to spin it. However, there is no way the public will ever buy Tiger’s spin. It is completely manipulative- especially when he plays the “poor me victim look how injured I was card in an attempt to feel sorry for him, all the while avoiding he real question about his past egregious behavior.
POOR TIGER MISSING HIS SON’S FIRST BIRTHDAY
If his surgeries and knee problems weren’t isn’t enough to try and garner public sympathy as an excuse for Tiger’s bad past, he does a mea culpa on how all of this caused him to miss his son’s first birthday.
He says that missing his son’t first birthday hurts and hurts a lot, as he looks down and says so in a monotone voice. PUHLEEEZ!! Why didn’t he think of his son’s first birthday when he was in bed with all of his sex partners?
There is no question that his spinmeister threw in his son’s birthday as a ploy to try to tug at emotional heartstrings as he mentions it three times. This is another clue that it is spin. When someone repeats something that often, it usually does not ring true. The SPIN did NOT work! The publc is NOT stupid and there is no way that they are buying it!
REHAB SEEMS TO BE THE LAST THING ON TIGER’S MIND ACCORDING TO HIS BODY LANGUAGE
Tiger was ever evasive when asked about his rehab with constant uh ums and shoulder shrugs and looking down. There is clearly no continued rehab schedule on the books.
Here’s a clue that all of this is BS and Spin. No one gets rehabbed for sex addition or pain pill prescription addiction in 45 days. It takes a lot longer. That is why I believe all of this was spin from the beginning, The fact that Tiger went into rehab was ONLY because he got caught with his pants down- literally ! If he didn’t get caught the word REHAB would never have crossed his lips.
Tiger has all the rhetoric down- all the buzz words- like the word “entitlement” and all the 12 step lingo. But to me they sound like words. The do not ring true.
Case in point. When a reporter asked him if he felt entitled, Tiger immediately asked the reporter what he meant. If Tiger was really sincere about his entitlement issues, he would have answered it with the same rapidity and confidence he answered questions concerning his golf game.
THE ONLY TIME TIGER’S SPEECH RANG TRUE
The only time Tiger sounded confident, where his speech was at a rapid clip and he showed a verbal bounce devoid of uhms and hesitations, but rather life and enthusiasm in his voice, was when he was talking about getting back out there and playing golf.
In doing so, he was radiant! He glowed as he smiled a huge bright genuine smile when he talked about his favorite subject.
READ THE POLICE REPORT!!!!!!
The most arrogant part of his presser was when asked about his accident. He was evasive, as he essentially said to read the police report. That spoke volumes. It as a though he was trying to distance himself from what happened and make it OK. No doubt his new spinmeister Ari Fleisher told him to do this.
It was obvious what he was doing in this regard. The only problem is that no one can forget that he was lying on the ground snoring with a fat lip according to the police report to which he is referring.
IS TIGER WEARING BRACES OR A DENTAL SPLINT?
And speaking of fat lips and mouths., it was interesting to note that as Tiger smiled he was wearing invisible braces over his front teeth. Tiger had the most perfect teeth in the past. So why is he now wearing clear plastic invisible braces on his teeth? You really see it when he smiled brightly when talking about getting back into his golf game. .
Did Elin really hot him with a golf club as the rumor goes and really give him a fat lip and knock his teeth out of alignment to boot?
If so, is he perhaps wearing dental braces for that purpose- to realign and straighten out the teeth she may have allegedly damaged teeth?
ELIN NOT COMING TO THE MASTERS AND TIGERS FACE SHOWS ANGER AT BEING ASKED THE QUESTION
Tigers steely glare and his tight jaw were the signals of anger that he let out when he asked if wife ELin was coming to the Masters. He said she was not. To me that said it al!!! This is ois comeback and the most important Golf Tournament of his life at this time.
When we do not see Elin’s support, it is very difficult for us to support Tiger as well. While he may be a great golfer, the respect for him is completely gone as far as Elin is concerned in my view. Otherwise, she would be standing my her man’s side.
But obviously she has enough self respect and self dignity to not show up to be on display to help her husbands tarnished image.
TIGER SHAKING HIS HEAD NO WHEN HE SHOULD BE SHAKING IT SHAKING IT YES
Tiger has still not taken full responsibility for his actions even though he says he has,. His head shaking No when he said “I take full responsibility for what happened,” should have been shaking Yes.
To me that spoke volumes. It speaks to the fact that while he has al the right words and the right rhetoric, he is clearly something completely opposite. He still hasn’t fully embraced what he has done, as he is till in denial body language-wise.
TIGER HUNGERS FOR THE PUBLICS ACCEPTAC E AND ADULATION BUT THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH HIS PEERS
Tiger kept mentioning how the fans were accepting of him. He appeared to be very concerned about this. He knows how vilified he has been recently. So now, to see smiling fans, no doubt made him feel better about himself.
Maybe this experience himbled him. Maybe he will be more respectful to his fans,.He certainbly took them for granted in the past. Now knowing that there are some people out ther who don’t vilify him and accept him may allow him to gain a newfound appreciation for those who are in his corner. His body language shoed genuine excitement and enthusiasm when disccussing his fans.
But when asked about how his peers were towards him, His body language spoke volumes. Even though he said how excited he was that he receivd hugs from his peers and seemed surmised at how well he was accepted and received by his peers as he mentioned it several times. When someone mentions things several times like Tiger demonstrated it is often a way of convinncing themselves that what they are saying is true.
The bottom line is that his body language revealed the truth. His shoulder shrugs and tight smile indicated that a lot of his peers weren’t so accepting to him and he very well knew it.
SPONSORS AND ENDORSEMENTS- THE REAL REASON FOR THIS 4TH MEA CULPA
When Tiger goes on to say how ell her represented his sponsors in the past, It became clear to me what this presser was all about –Sponsors and trying to get them back on the bandwagon.
To me that was the bottom line. He already gave one lame public apology that didn’t ring true, with his mother hugging him at the end showing that all is forgiven. Then he did another one for ESPN and yet another one for the Gold Channel with controlled questioning by tame Tiger friendly interviewers.
Now he does a forth lame interview and opens up the questioning to all journalists. Why? In my view it is all about sponsors. It all boils down to dollars and sense and that his why Ari Fleisher suggested that he bite the bullut endure some intense and uncomfortable moments of questioning in hopes that he would persuade public opinion and get more endorsers on the gravey train.
Maybe some sponsors will see fit to take Tiger back if she wins the Masters. I personally will have no respect for them if they do that. I strongly feel that no one should be rewarded for bad behavior . I will see those companies as hypocrites and it will not make me want to use their products. Their taking Tiger back will have the opposite effect on me that they intended it to have.
WILL ALL BE FORGIVEN IF TIGER DOES WELL IN THE MASTERS?
For some people, all that matters os whether Tiger can play golf. If she succeeds many will turn a blind eye.But for man,y the fact they they were duped with his cookies and milk pure squeaky clean image can never be forgotten.
My view is that no matter how well he plays his image will be tarnished forever. No matter how many pressers he gives witrh mea culpsas that don’t ring true, what he did will never be forgotten.
ELIN’S FORGIVENESS IS ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS AND HER NO SHOW AT THE MASTERS SAYS ALL IS NOT FORGIVEN
The fact that his wife Elin is not showing up says it all in my book. She is the one who really matters in all this. Unlike the wives of past cheaters . who have stood by their men for whatever reason like Hillary Clinton and disgraced ex- governor Elliot Spitzers wife, Elin has refused to do so.
I must say that U admire her for it. He fooled her and destroyed their family.Whether or not she allegedly got physical with him and engaged in domestic violence is another matter, Many can’t blame her if she did. Others are appalled. We will never know the true circumstances of what really happened- at least not yet!
But her not showing up at his most important gold game and making his debut may hiry Tiger more than any alleged golf club to his mouth. Her no show says
: I will not be made a fool of. I will not subject myself to being used any longer so you Tiger can gave a clean image again. It says while you go out there and try to regain your crown of glory on the golf course, I too am maintaining my crown of clory as as woman with self esteem wgho can hold her head high because I am not a hypocrite and doing something I don’t want to do – show phony support for you.”
No Ari Fleisher or any spin meister can spin what is real and what is in someone’s heart. And via Elin’s no show, we clearly see what is not in her heart as far as Tiger is concerned- her forgiveness for his degrading her. She is saying that she wants no part of his spin and for that I have tremendous respect! www.drlillianglass.com
