When The Checks Stop Comin’ In… Tiger Loses Gatorade Sponsorship

- By Bossip Staff

We can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. Gatorade announced yesterday that they will no longer be sponsoring Tiger Woods. The Pepsi Co. company discontinued their Tiger-Woods brand drinks in November before the Woods scandal dropped, but they continued as a sponsor for the golf pro until now. Pop the hood for more.

“We no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship,” a Gatorade spokeswoman said. “We wish him all the best.”

The spokewoman said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation.

She declined to say whether his contract was terminated early because of trouble with his public image.

Earlier this week the CEO of Procter & Gamble said that he doesn’t know whether Woods will ever appear in another Gillette commercial, saying the company did not need the “distraction” of using him in its advertising.

Gatorade is the third sponsor to drop Tiger — AT&T and Accenture kicked that azz to the curb in December.

Which company do you think will drop Tiger next? We’re taking bets that it’s Gillette.

    Tiger is definitely in a storm of his own making. It’s hard for me to feel sorry for him.

  • WHOOPS

    This should be motivation for Woods to get his game back. People are dropping him like a bad headache. If he can come back he can say ” You rememember when I was down and you step on me, now you can kiss my Coasian Azz!!!”

  • Angee

    Tiger Woods is going to win the Masters in April, and all of this will be a thing of the past.

  • Angee

    Well that’s my prediction anyway 🙂

    They will come back just like nike did. Tiger is the best at what he does. When he comes back and start winning every award, they will jump back on the bandwagon. At least Tiger can see now who was really there to support him, and not just b/c of his money. Every celeb goes through a downfall during their career and these companies should realize that. No one is perfect or has this perfect life. You are only human and bound to make mistakes. It’s what you do after, is how you should be judged.

  • dmo

    Please Tiger is already set for life. He don’t need anymore checks.

  • Gimmeabreak78

    Tiger and Gatorade’s relationship was a business relationship, not a friendship, so people shouldn’t get upset if the company decides to drop him over bad press. The first law of marketing is that your spokesperson’s image should never overshadow your brand.

  • Moreaces

    Nike NEVER dumper him. What are you talking about?

  • Just Bored

    @dmo – once he splits half those stacks with Elin, he will no longer be “set” for life. And I bet most of those “other” women will find some way to sue him for something sooner or later. Time to sell the houses and big boy toys (boats, cars, etc;) and move into a bachelor condo and cut the spending Tiger.

  • Yoda

    No need to drink that garbage any more then.

  • intelligent folks know

    Black folks will continue to fall one by one. THEIR REAL CRIME IS ELECTING A NEGRO TO THE WHITE HOUSE. THIS IS THE PRICE YOU AGREED TO PAY SO DON’T COMPLAIN.

  • Mrs. Darren shellychelle Sharper
