AT&T has joined Accenture and Gillette to become the third sponsor to drop as their spokesperson. AT&T didn’t give a formal reason, only saying “We are ending our sponsorship agreement with and wish him well in the future.”

Tag Heuer will also drop Woods from American ad campaigns this month while Nike and Gatorade, which have not run ads featuring Woods since November 29, say they  haven’t dropped him, but Gatorade is no longer producing Tiger Focus drinks. Gatorade claims the decision was made before the news broke that Elin beat the crap out of him. Tiger Woods Golf publisher Electronic Arts said they’ll stick with Woods.

When all is said and done, Tiger Woods may be losing more than $110 million in endorsements a year. On the bright side, he did get laid so it wasn’t a total wash.

    It makes a nice change, todays top sports stars are so neutered and boring, they don’t do or say anything interesting. I’m 28 now and growing up as kid in England all the top soccer stars were pretty nuts from Eric Cantona (spouted poetry and beat people up), to Ronaldo (The Brazilian legend who was arrested with 2 trannies in a brothel lol), Romario (hired a house full of hookers) to Zidane (was always on the verge of nutting somebody) etc etc. Those guys never really attracted much hate because of their flaws, today we have super-douches like Cristiano Ronaldo, who basically just work out and perform well, its boring, and thats why nobody likes them.
