EA to Tiger, "We Got Your Back Homie."

With most of his sponsors leaving him in droves, video game maker EA has decieded to stand behind noted ladies man Tiger Woods.

"We didn't form a relationship with him so that he could act as an arm's length endorser," EA Sports President Peter Moore said earlier this month. "Regardless of what's happening in his personal life ... Tiger Woods is still one of the greatest athletes in history."

While I am sad that I won't be able to buy PHIL MICKELSON PGA 2010 "REVENGE OF LEFTY" this summer, this should be a no brainer.  Let's be honest, EA is sticking with Tiger because he is the only golfer who can sell a ton of video games.  How long before Tiger just says screw it and gets a tatoo and cops a bad attitude like Kobe did.  Tell me you could not market the shit out of bad boy Tiger.
