Gatorade Drops Tiger

Unread postby Noodle » Tue Dec 08, 2009 5:34 pm

Gatorade has dropped Tiger Woods.

It’s the first major endorsement loss for the golfer in the wake of his cheating scandal and bizarre one-car crash.

Gatorade released a statement Tuesday saying the move to discontinue its “Tiger Focus” drink had nothing to do with the golfer’s growing scandal and that the decision was made before Tiger’s car crash and allegations of extra marital affairs.

In a statement to CNBC, Gatorade officials said: “We decided several months ago to discontinue Gatorade Tiger Focus along with some other products to make room for our planned series of innovative products in 2010. We hope to share more about our 2010 plans soon.”

Does anyone believe this decsion was made months ago?

Apparently this decision was made just before all the tumult of Thanksgiving night.

I didn't know there was a Beverage Digest. I'll be damned.

Are they dropping a particular drink or commercial or Tiger altogether.

IMO no way this was all decided months ago. Were they thinking about it, OK maybe, but Tiger's most recent trip to Perkins put them over the top.

The green flavor was good. I'll be sad to see that go. But, still, I never got the urge to bang another broad besides the one in my life after drinking Tiger's Focus. Something tells me it's being pulled because it didn't work the right way.
