15. If Tiger Woods was to resurrect his career, he had to claim to have had an addiction.

The American public expected an affirmative act of contrition. And he had to say he made a mistake and the mistake was so massive that it was involuntary.

It reminds me of DUI's between their arrest and court hearing. Their lawyers get them into AA ASAP so when they go in front of a judge, they can say truthfully and with a straight face that the defendant FINALLY realized that s/he had a serious problem and decided to address it head-on. And they hope the judge will be lenient when it's time to pass judgment.
