This reporter on the Golf Channel had the balls to say that. Apparently she doesnt know what is appropriate to say on Camera, and to make it worse Golf Channel allowed the lady to come back to work and just hand a simple apology and continued with the broadcast.

In the spirit of fairness it was banter that was going on between two commentators about how good Tiger Woods is and how dominate he is. She didn't mean she wanted him killed.

That being said, a completely idiotic comment, and there really isn't an excuse.

The civil rights community has been in dire need of something recently. Since the nappy-headed hoes comment has died off since Don Imus is gone, and the Jena-6 has lost it;s appeal, the Reverend Al Sharpton has been looking for something else to throw up on. This may now be his chance. Someday, when the NFL is over 90% African American, it will deemed racism if someone uses words like "lynched"
or others.

LAX, I don't believe the reporter meant for her remark to be taken in that context. I get so sick and tired of the whining by the so-called "Civil Rights" community over any little remark. hissyfit 

I fully support the Golf Channel's decision to just issue a simple apology and the let the reporter continue although IMO an apology is not necessary.

The woman should be fired. Period.
The word 'lynch', especially in the way she used it as to a person, Tiger Woods who is in part of African-American herritage, is an obscene comment of suggesting a horrible act of violence to him. It would be like if she said as to a Woman PGA members that she be 'raped'. It is a totally unacceptable term today and it suggests that she has a poor knowlege of history and poor judgement that makes it inappropiate for her to be in such a public position.

The comment was terrible and completely out of line.

As a side note, I am surprised that you are insinuating that this is a racially motivated comment given the fact that in a previous thread about the Iowa Caucus you said that a person being only 50% black doesn't in fact make them black. And you implied that they should not be considered as such. Therefore, by your definition the reporter's comment has no racial relevance...right?

What context to you believe she meant her remark to be taken? According the article, it was that young players should lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley. That's an awfully strange comment to make, regardless of whether Woods is white or black - there's not much other way to take that other than encouraging physical harm to Tiger, though I don't believe that's what she meant.

Absolutely asinine comment.

I may have been distasteful saying that in public, especially on camera, but she can still say it. Should she be fired, probably. Should everyone throw a big hissyfit about this? I don't think so.

I didn't see the quote. Like Queso said, it was on the Golf Channel, so not many other folks saw it either.

having said that, I think it's all about context. If she said it in a vicious manner, meaning it literally, then she should not only be fired, but maybe even taken to a back alley herself. If the comment was simply a light-hearted remark about the young golfers not being able to have a chance playing against him - then BFD!

From http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/news/story?id=3186158 :

Asked for a reaction, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg said: "This story is a non-issue. Tiger and Kelly are friends and Tiger has a great deal of respect for Kelly. Regardless of the choice of words used we know unequivocally that there was no ill-intent in her comments. This story is a non-issue in our eyes. Case closed."

She owned it, apologized for it, and Tiger's fine...let's move on.

I was trying to show LAXspotter the absurdity of this thread--a poor choice of words by Ms. Tilghman, but as an actual Golf Channel watcher who is familiar with her work, firing her for 1 stupid comment would be ironically akin to a lynching.

All of you who are calling for her firing without knowing who she is, or seeing the actual comment, should be pretty ashamed of yourselves. Get a life and grow a thicker skin.

So, that excuses it?
You're wrong anyway, as she said it on the air.

I think the issue should be settled by this response from Tiger's Agent at http://www.usatoday.com/sports/golf/2008-01-09-tilghman-tiger_N.htm :

Quote:
Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, said, "It is a complete non-issue. Kelly and Tiger are friends. It might have been a poor choice of words, but there was absolutely no ill intent whatsoever."

But I'm troubled by some of the responses from people on this thread that suggest that that comment was even remotely acceptable.

I agree, but just like you don't joke about throwing people in an oven when talking to Jews, you don't suggest lynching when talking to Blacks.

It is remotely acceptable. People are entitled to their opinions; just as you are to yours. I may not like what you say, but you certainly have that right to say it. There are people that may not like blacks, jews, hispanics, gays. That is up to them, not up to you. You can choose not to associate with these people, buy from them, use their services, watch/listen to their programs, etc. I liken it to people that bitched about Howard Stern; I don't really care for his program most of the time, but if I didn't like it, I listen to something else.

118 D L X : No, that is YOUR spin. The connontation is that the comment was regrettable. You can't point out anyone saying she's a racist. Oh come on. Even if it
119 Fumanchewd : You seem to be missing a step. I know the money side of it. The channel has to do what it has to do. That's been discussed. I'm talking about the roo
120 Fumanchewd : Where in America are black men "terrorized" as you put it by lynching today? Nowhere. Instead we just give them crappy defense attorneys and minimum
121 Post contains images PAHS200 : Whatever you want to think. is that why black people (black rappers, mostly) say the N word all the time and everyone turns a blind eye just like eve

127 Yellowstone : You're right, but that's not what DLX et al. are doing. When the word "lynch" is used with a black man as its direct object, then it makes sense to r
128 Fumanchewd : Hey, that's pretty obvious. I never said that anyone here is a racist. Look at my other 10 posts about it. My point was that it wasn't a racist comme
129 Post contains images D L X : Fu, we're done. My post seems to have simply flown over your head, even the parts where I agreed with you. If only I completely absolved of my mistake
130 Fumanchewd : So you aren't going to tell me what it means to walk in a black man's shoes? Darn, and I thought that you really know me and would be able to tell me
131 Yellowstone : One last analogy, and then I'm bouncing as well (I've got finals to study for). Imagine if you will a kid playing baseball with his friends. The kid h
132 Fumanchewd : Yeah, I know. All I ever wanted to state on this thread is that it isn''t right. It isn't her actions but other's interpretations. I know she has to
133 Fumanchewd : Thats a much better analogy than DLX's. But broken glass in one story and in reality with Tiger, noone or nothing got damaged. Its just the reaction
