    Just hoping for all of you out there with subpar service that the millions of dollars spent on Tiger's golf bag logo will go towards getting your service to a satisfactory level.

    I don't know what he "earned" by having AT&T's logo on his bag, but it would surely be in the 5-15,000,000 dollar range yearly. It's not a hell of a lot of money for them, but hopefully it WILL help.

    at&t will not use the money for service improvements; they will find another spokesperson. Service improvements are low on AT&T's priority.

    I think it's "retarted" that you can't spell retarded.

    How long have they been using Luke Wilson? Did he replace Tiger?

    Uh, no. The money that isn't being spent on Tiger Woods will go to somebody else and to marketing budget.

    ESPN had THE BEST headline for this story too. "Call Dropped: AT&T retracts sponsorship with Woods"

    Verizon already has a superior network. AT&T should be spending MORE than Verizon. :rolleyes:

    He earned it by being a golf superstar and like any superstart companies were eager to pay him gobs of money to have a logo or have him hawk their products.

    Given his personal problems and his inability to win a major, it looks like ATT wants a different direction with their marketing budget. Using the money on service improvements is not how business works. They give the marketing dept a certain amount of money to use, and so they won't use that budget on Woods but some other thing.
