    very interesting post jeff! i’m not surprised to see the results, per se, but they are definately eye opening and it does speak to the importance of brand and once a brand is successfully and properly built, it can be difficult to bring a brand down. tiger will continue to be a media draw even if most of america villify him, which my guess is they won’t. the ratings for the masters will be huge in a few weeks. great article!

    Hi, Jeff. Of course, these figures say nothing about what *kind* of buzz Tiger Woods or anyone/anything else is generating. Still, an interesting post. Thanks.
