YIKES!! $128 Million for Tiger

Think of all the jobs that were created building this. And think of all the maintenance needed, you don't think Tiger mows the grass himself do you? If it helps, you can consider all that, a charitable contribution.

Good for Tiger. What would michael Jordan earn today. I think he is twice as marketable as tiger.

By the way, I doubt the accuracy of those numbers. Floyd Mayweather did not actually make $20 million dollars for his one appearence at Wrestlemania. That was just a ploy to get people interested, like everything else in wrestling. It was just theatre.
