Tiger Woods could sue American golf analyst Brandel Chamblee after 'cheating' slur - Telegraph: Possible action for libel in US?
"The world No 1’s agent, Mark Steinberg, has revealed the fury in the Woods camp at the claims of Brandel Chamblee, the former PGA Tour winner, on a high-profile magazine’s website.
“There’s nothing you can call a golfer worse than a cheater,” Steinberg told ESPN. “This is the most deplorable thing I have seen. I’m not one for hyperbole, but this is absolutely disgusting. Calling him a cheater? I’ll be shocked, stunned if something is not done about this. Something has to be done. There are things that just don’t go without response. It’s atrocious.... [we] have to give thought to legal action.”
Chamblee’s main contract is with the Golf Channel, who have close ties with the PGA Tour, and it is understood a complaint as already been made to that station as well as Golf.com who carried the offending article.
Chamblee claimed yesterday that he did not directly call Woods a “cheat”, but the implication in his article was clear." 'via Blog this'
